I passed up the road home and made a loop around one of the paths. Wanted to make up a little for not walking yesterday.
Found the first two coins for the month - only pennies but the month has just started.
I walked 7.8 miles.
********************I was planning on staying home today and just doing some things around the house but while I was walking Cheryl called and we made plans to have lunch together.
Cheryl came over the house around 11:30 and we talked for a bit and then went to the mall down the street from me and had lunch at the cafe in Nordstroms. I hardly ever go to the mall and didn't even know that Nordsroms had a cafe in it! We both had grilled sandwiches which were very good.
Both of us aren't shoppers but we walked around the mall mostly window shopping.
Cheryl introduced me to a small store called Brighton which has mostly jewelery, but also purses, wallets and little gift items as well. I thought these little ladybug earrings were so cute that I just had to buy them. No ordinary bags here, they put my purchase in this cute little cloth drawstring bag.
Then it was time to head back home. Cheryl dropped me off and went back home. It was nice spending time with Cheryl, when she didn't have to do my hair!! : )
Our friendship is one of the bonuses of blogging!
Before Cheryl got to my house, I had started a loaf of bread in the bread machine. I got the recipe, Sweet Brown Bread, from Vee on her blog.
When I got back home and walked in the house a delicious smell wafted out to me. Yes, the bread was done. I couldn't wait for it to cool completely and cut myself a slice, buttered it and ate it. It tasted as good as it smelled. Thanks Vee! : )
Hope all is well in your part of the world.
Till next time.......
A smile from me to you.
There are joys which long to be ours.
God sends ten thousands truths,
which come about us like birds seeking inlet;
but we are shut up to them,
and so they bring us nothing,
but sit and sing awhile upon the roof,
and then fly away.
~ Henry Ward Beecher
