I don't have much of a zip in my step today, really dragging. I will get some sort of exercise done, nothing to taxing tho, as I not in much of a mood to get into anything much today.


Back on track

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Three day holiday weekend

Monday, September 07, 2009

Cleaned the house Saturday morning, followed by a lazy afternoon, and dinner out with friends . Sunday went to the farmers market in St.Paul got a lot of fresh veggies. some nice yukon gold potatoes, and delicious fresh raspberries. .we had a nice walk downtown St.Paul and a very good raspberry,pecan salad at a restaurant. We then proceeded to drive to a well known ice cream place here in the twin cities and had some real good tasting ice cream( full fat ice cream at this shop). Found out we were only a few blocks from Mpls. after finding our way to the plac. I do however prefer the Mpls. farmers market, its much larger than the St.Paul market. I then needed to clean all the veggies when we got home,followed by making potato salad for today.Today we had friends in for a BBQ. DH went to bed already, he has to go to work eary in the morning, and I am unrinding from the long weekend. Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday. Our granddaughter starts her school year tomorrow, sure my daughter will enjoy that as she works from home, much easier when she is alone for part of the day to get things done


state fair

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

We spent from 11am to 8 :30pm at the great Mn. get together, in St Paul, just across the Mississippi River from were we live(Mpls).The state fair runs for 12 days, ending on Labor Day. We got over 14,000 steps in today, the place is huge. So much to see and do, not to mention all the food to graze on throughout the fair, oh the wonderful smells. Tried to tow the line, but of course I'm sure I overate, didn't log in today .Well, gotta get ready to turn in for the night, kinda tired after being out in the fresh air.

Went to see my daughter ( a sparker too) and granddaughter today. Brought the 8 year old clothes I sewed and bought for her and bought ( school starts next Tuesday, as most of public schools in Mn.) She really liked them, made me happy, never know with kids. Took them to subway for lunch, then I come home so I could get my walk in for today. Tonight we need to go to shopping center to get some things, maybe to Caribou (Mn. company) for coffee.
