Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Cookie Day

I didn't get to walk this morning.  It got cold and all the rain from yesterday froze and then we got a dusting of snow.  As you know I don't walk in ice.  Here's a picture I took on my front porch.  I zoomed in on the mountain.
It was cookie sale day at the Drane house.
Lots of delicious looking cookies and yes we did buy some.
My Welsh Cookies were just about gone when we got there. Bought some of the competition Chocolate Chip cookies and Ken says they don't compare to mine.
There was a fire going inside the house which kept things nice and cozy.
There was also hot cider and some free cookies to eat too. 

Left there and went up to Happy Trails to pick up the Christmas tree stand and a few other things to bring back to the house.  While there I walked around a little bit to get some steps in for the day.  Didn't get our tree yet because the weather isn't so nice for cutting it down. 

Back at home, a few times I put on my walking shoes and went down in the basement and walked around the loop down there.  My goal is to get at least 13,000 steps a day in and I made it by walking a mile at a time down in the basement.  It is pretty boring but it's better than walking on a treadmill.  

For my snack tonight I'm going to pick out a few cookies from the sale and eat them with a glass of milk.  Which I'm going to do right now.

Hope you enjoyed your Saturday and you smiled often.
happyone : )
Want to keep Christ in Christmas?
Feed the hungry, 
clothe the naked,
forgive the guilty,
welcome the unwanted,
care for the ill,
love your enemies,
and do unto others as you would have done unto you.

I discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago. I admire your commitment to your walking. I had to laugh at your mention of walking laps in the basement. I challenged myself to get a minimum of 10,000 steps a day for the month of December. Of course, we had a terrible ice storm Thursday night that has had us stuck inside so I've been doing laps around my house to get in my steps. My family thinks I'm crazy, but I've hit my goal!!

Ken is a wise man! What was your honest assessment? I've rarely met a chocolate chip cookie that I didn't enjoy. Ice...pah! And more coming. Very innovative way to get your exercise...watching a movie on the treadmill doesn't work?
