Today we are celebrating my husband's birthday. This also would have been my dad's 107th birthday. The two most important, wonderful men in my life shared the same birthday. Different years, of course. We are going to go to Tappan Lake, then this afternoon to our daughter's family for a celebration. Looking forward to a wonderful day, and the weather promises to be beautiful! Will be taking the dog for a walk (and ourselves) in a couple of minutes.

Yesterday I broke my step record big time. I have a goal of 10,000 steps a day, which I have met every day. However, yesterday I had a count of 18, 090 steps, which equaled 10.27 miles!! emoticon We had taken our walk in the morning, then I came home and mowed our yard, walked up to a neighbors, did some yard work, took another walk in the evening, and made a quick trip to the store. Amazing how many steps you take going up and down aisles looking for a certain item!!!! And the best part - I wasn't even tired. Not bad for having had triple by-pass surgery in January, if I do say so myself! emoticon And I do.
