The pitfalls of potlucks...
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
O my! Where to start? I went to a local and sustainable foods potluck with mom this evening. The food was healthy, but there were so many choices. Ack! I know I ate too much. I tried tracking everything, but I know I am missing something. And of course I tried to take small portions, but I am not sure how successful I was. Oh well, it was one night. Tomorrow is a new day, right? The hardest part of the evening for me was the socializing. I hate big group events. I wouldn't have gone except I was the one driving. We really don't want mom driving, especially at night, so I was elected. I survived, but that is the best I can say about it.
We are not taking our niece out kayaking tomorrow morning, as the temperature is going to drop overnight and she doesn't have cold weather gear. But Jeremy and I both have cold weather gear now, so we might go for an evening paddle if the wind stays reasonable. I have been saying we need to do another moonlight paddle, and this looks like our opportunity. Should be fun, and I will have a reason to wear my wetsuit.
Cooper didn't want to walk much today, and I humored him, so instead of 9 or 10 miles we walked more like 5 miles. Spoiled pup!
