Walking, walking, walking

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!!

    We had some rain today, but tonight we have a weird fog that is filling up the entire harbour which is my view. It is like the water doesn’t even exist anymore. Spooky….

    Nice that you got all that walking in and a visit with your Mom.

    Happy to see that John is back on latte duty!

    How fun that you got that much “functional” walking in. Very funny about the snow comment.

    That baked potato looks SO good to me. Guess what I’m having for dinner tomorrow!

      I think our town has 6000 people in it? Of course, it is surrounded by other little towns with more people, but definitely on the smaller side.

    LOL I can’t believe the snow comment! I’m remembering the photos of the Winter The Snow Wouldn’t Stop!

    As you know, I *love* walking, but biking IS faster. Breezier, too. 🙂

    (Thank you so much for you kind comments on my stress-y post. I knew I’d find a few kindred spirits. :))

    That’s funny Lori: you walked yesterday and I biked a lot yesterday. It’s obvious I’m more a walker/runner than a biker because I have muscle pain in my butt LOL.

    I thought about you yesterday because we were in what you would call bikers heaven. We were on an island where cars are not really allowed, only by the people that live there and those who are there for work so not many cars. The island isn’t big, but it has 30K (18 miles) bike paths. We biked around the island yesterday and it was beautiful to bike there.

    You asked about the houseboat. The houses where I am now aren’t houseboats but we do have them in Holland. When I see one I will take a photo for you.

    Food looks delicious as always.

    It’s great that your cafe is within walking distance – I love getting a walk in everyday. I keep thinking what I should do in September when my youngest goes to secondary school and I won’t have to walk him to school any more – I will have to figure out some other daily errand!

    What a lovely day!!! Always good to have ones like that but no thinking about the snow!!!

    Funny about the walking – I sometimes want to walk up to the nearby stores instead of drive but it seems like every time I do this – well, here it is, TMI, I have to go to the bathroom either before I get there or on the way home. I think it happens cause I know I can’t go & of course all the fluids I drink! 😉

    I would be OK with not seeing snow again for another 2-3 years! Snow mid-April was horrible!

    Remember when you used to eat bars a lot and you used to comment about how you wanted to cut back a bit, etc? You’ve really done a 180 on that – another self goal to be proud of! [I am a bar fan too 🙂 and I’m not ready to give them up!]
