We fit in a trip to one of my favorite gardens. It's my favorite because (1) it's nearby and (2) it's free. Formal gardens usually have a steep entrance fee (understandably, because it takes a ton of people-power to keep them up) but this one is part of the local park system. Here you can see a typical situation for my family - if I'm awake, my dad is asleep, and vice versa. Now that he's retired, he stays up working on projects all night long, and sometimes just comes to bed as my mother is getting up. I like to tease him a bit because I did the same thing during the summers in between high school and my dad gave me a bit of flak for it then.
As a final note, I'm happy to report that the weird pine-nut thing went away after about 5 days. From now on, I'm sticking to walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts.
