Day 489 - M

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Really had a fun day....but the one who had the MOST fun was Jetta!!! We took her to a waterfall here in Brown Co. and she had an absolute BLAST!! She is SUCH a water dog!!! I've had Shepherds since '71 and never have I had one that LOVES the water like Jetta. Totally diving underwater time and again, not a dry hair on her body. So uncharacteristic of a Shepherd - much more like a water crazy Black Lab. Big Yellowwood Lake is right by the waterfall, so we took her there too. She went into the water & under the water for all she was worth. Loved retrieving sticks in the water and diving down for anything of interest she could see beneath the surface. She's quite a gal!!! She's a ball of fire!!

Some how, some way I managed to get in 71 min. of cardio walking today. It was broken up into short spurts. I didn't think I'd be able to get any in at all with the little guys here. Got lucky though.

Had a victory today, in that we went to this very cool old time ice cream parlor that's been in business since the early 1900's. It's Zaharako's in Columbus, IN here:
Take a minute to look at the pics - this place is fabulously grand - a step back in time, so gorgeous. DH & the boys got their divine ice cream and I ordered unsweetened ice tea with lemon!!! I didn't cave in!!!!!!! I was glad too, in the end. It's worth it to go there even if you don't eat their ice cream and now I know it's possible to go there and still stay on track. They even have a huge stained glass lamp from Tiffany's - the real deal. So cool.

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope you had a great Saturday!!! emoticon

    Seems like Jetta really had fun. Now if I went to the ice cream parlor with you, I would have to eat a scoop of ice cream. We don't keep ice cream, but every once in a while I would like a taste.
