Happy Friday! Another week almost down in the books. Hooray!
Today after school, I took Charlie to the Living Computer Museum here in Seattle, located in the SODO district (South Downtown, near the Starbucks headquarters). It was like a step back in time being able to browse through a timeline of personal computing, games and word processing. I even saw an Apple II e, which I believe came out right after the Apple II plus, which our family owned when I was in the 4th grade. I remember thinking at the time that it was so advanced, floppy disks and all.
In addition, they have an area in the museum for new innovation. Below, you will see that we are in a self driving car simulation. Charlie loved being able to tell the computer where to go…and we were off, in a virtual world. Side note, this attraction may make you sick to your stomach.
I noticed when we were walking around the museum that my joints were not bothering me at all, which is usually something that I notice after being on my feet for more than an hour. I think this is partly due to my hip replacement which has significantly improved my quality of life, and partly due to eliminating inflammatory foods in my diet.
I enjoyed my usual for breakfast, fried eggs and hash browns this morning.
Since we left straight after Charlie got out of school (12:30 pm), I didn’t prepare and bring a lunch, but I did have a Larabar with me, so that was lunch today.
For dinner tonight, we made NY Strip Steaks, which hit the spot. For side dishes I prepared roasted fingerling potatoes and steamed green beans with basil.
