Walked to the grocery store and back. Thank heaven for my canvas shopping cart! I do believe I'm the only person in the village who owns one. Everybody else drives; they don't know what they're missing, I guess. When I go to Montreal, it's quite impressive to see all the people on the street with their carts. In Barcelona last year, I found some supermarkets had a special parking area for carts at the entrance. You had to pay 1 Euro but you got it back when you recovered the cart. One thing I never saw there: obese people! Everybody walks everywhere.
In-laws were visiting from out of town. Got up early for a four mile walk, got some more walking in with my mother-in-law at the mall - but not a fast walk because it was busy in there. We grilled out with them. Pretty tired today!

A good start to the weekend. I got to sleep in and when I got up I was able to post a solid weight loss for the week! I've had this happen before...the scale won't move for a few weeks and then suddenly a pound will be gone. I average a half pound a week in loss mode, but it sometimes comes as a pound every two weeks. It's a cold, wet day here. I will need to venture out to get a gallon of spring water to make pickles with the last of the pickling cukes that I bought yesterday at the last neighborhood farmer's market of the season. Many of the vendors are at one of the year 'round markets across town, but it's another reminder that summer is over.
Rain, rain and more rain.. Wet dogs after our morning walk, but I have a huge supply of "dog" towels.
Today I hope to get my stationary bike ride in and a bit of yoga as I missed out yesterday as we went shopping instead and I just didn't have time by the time we got home.. but I did get a good dog walk prior to shopping..
Good luck Kellie on your run and Marie, I hope your cold bug eases off!

Maree, so sorry to hear you are still fighting your cold. It must be that time of year as so many are in the same predicament. I am doing great thank goodness. I don't get many colds but when I do I am down for the count!!!! Not sure what I am going to do today but that is a good thing once in awhile. Hopefully the rain will stop long enough for a walk but if. to then some exercise indoors. Enjoy your Saturday all!!!

Add my get well wishes to the rest, Maree. I'm home at last from the library convention. I still have extra weekly calories/points to get me through the weekend, which is good since we have company coming with lasagna. Best of all ... I had shoe victory at the outlet shops on the way home from the convention. I'll blog about it tomorrow. Today - it's clean house to get ready for said company w/lasagna. Oh. And they're bringing their puppy. We will have a growl 'n' tumble fest here. Photos. I promise.
So good to be home

Happy Saturday, team! I am up with the sun this morning. Cannot seem to sleep so I am giving up. My girls and DH are still sleeping so it is nice to have a quiet home to myself. Maree, I hope you feel better soon. Some RnR later will probably help! Kellie, best of luck with your 10K today. Such a great accomplishment! Way to go!
Looking forward to a relaxing day with the family. Going to take my little one to the park while DH takes the older one to soccer practice. I want to get a run in today before we go out for our anniversary dinner with my MIL and FIL. They are foodies and I know they are at taking us to a terrific place.
Waiting on coffee to brew! The cold is still hanging on with all the usual symptoms. Hoping to run our usual 3.6 mi. Lots of errands to run this am and then cruising the houseboat the rest of the day. No rain predicted here until late so will have to seize the day while we can!
Hope you all find your best way to seize the day too! Go kellie go!
