No walk for me today!! Last night we decided to take a ride up to Pennsylvania to see my parents and were going to leave first thing in the morning. But when I called to say we would be coming up, my mom said they would be busy today so we ended up not going. By then it was getting too hot to walk. :-(
My mom did open up her birthday present early like I knew she would! :-)
Remember those Welsh Cookies I baked last week.
Well, I wrapped them up and put them in this Longaberger basket that I bought for her months ago.
I am happy to say she was happy with her present! :-)
I made us French toast for breakfast this morning with some of the French bread I made in the bread machine. It was delicious!
Later in the morning we went out and about and did a few errands. One stop was as Bass Pro and since I couldn't take any pictures from a morning walk I took this picture of the deer in the store!
We pass a farm quite often that has a sign which says they sell produce. You can't see the stand from the road and we usually just pass right by it. Today we went up the dirt road to take a look.
We bought peaches and one huge tomato. The peaches are to be made into peach cobbler, the recipe which I got from a new blogger friend Anita
. I'll be sure to post a picture when I make it.
I got an email from the library telling me a book I have on reserve was in so we made a stop at the library to pick that up too. And wouldn't you know I opened it up and started to read it, so now once again I have 5 books started!! We also picked up a couple of old Paul Newman movies. We just finished watching a biography of him from we got from Netflix, so thought we would watch a couple of his movies.
We stopped for a bite to eat at Subway while we were out too. I had a turkey sub with cheddar cheese, cucumbers and spinach.
Now we are home for a while this afternoon. I plan to do a little knitting and reading. Then after supper we are headed out to walk around a local carnival which I'm really looking forward to. It's been a very long time since I've been to a carnival. I'm thinking I'd like to get some cotton candy!!
Since I haven't walked today I've been wearing my pedometer and counting my steps for the day. I usually take over 12,000 steps on my walk alone but today so far I've only taken a little over 5,000. Maybe by tonight I'll get up to at least 10,000 which is supposed to be what you should walk every day to stay healthy. I'll tell you tomorrow what my number for today was.
I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.
You've got a lot of choices.
If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore
and you're not smiling on a regular basis,
try another choice.
