Bagel day today. No biking, however. It was very cloudy and radar showed heavy rain coming in. So, we decided to walk to the new cafe. It’s only about 1.3 miles from our house, so a good walking exercise there and back. Our town put up new little flags. How charming.
Note the saucy French beret signifying the French-Indian war. Our area is actually very history filled. Birth of the nation and all that. 😀
I had Bagel Wednesday, which I kept in the French theme by the Eiffel Tower!
It rained quite a bit while we were in the cafe. The ground needs it, though. My bike does not.
It was kind of nice to walk somewhere for a change, although it felt so darn slow compared to being on a bike. I think that is a sign I bike a lot.
Kind of a dreary day all around.
I did eat lunch on the porch, though.
I made tuna salad on some sourdough I made yesterday. I still am on the search for the perfect sourdough recipe. The boule I made on first try was the best, but I am going for some kind of sandwich bread.
I was hungry for something other than my latte today, so I had a Balance Bar.
I do like these, as does John, but I don’t eat them very much anymore. I suppose they are a better choice than straight up chocolate!
Plus my latte.
John-made latte today, so it is extra special!
Note the dreary quality to today’s photos from the rain. I never use a flash unless I can absolutely help it and didn’t feel like getting up and using my white board for lighting <——- lazy photographer.
I made up a light dinner after I munched on some potato chips. Ever get those nights where nothing really appeals? I decided on a potato with laughing cow, ground beef and BBQ sauce.
Actually ended up being a pretty tasty dinner!
Went out for some mother/daughter time tonight. I met her at the new coffee shop! That meant another walk in the rain, but I got in 5 miles of walking today!
So I had a perfect Lori-sized raspberry tartlette and a nice visit with my mom! We are imaging how fun it will be on a cold winter night at the caffe with warm coffee and watching the snow come down.
Wait a minute… no snow. I can’t believe I said that after the winter we just had!!
