Just a quick post before I head out for a run…an inside run as we have thunderstorms rolling around all morning.
Found this article on the benefits of walking today: apparently it’s good for just about everything. I think I’ll get my mom back to walking everyday when I visit her next week.
Yesterday took a nice long walk with the dog, not our normal route since this weekend the town is nuts with Bridgefest activities & our normal route would’ve taken me past fair-food vendors (there’s a rumor of a fried Oreo stand). Instead, we walked from hubby’s house in Hancock, across the bridge, and over to Tech. I usually take this trip one-way in the summer & have hubby drive me home after his class, so it doubled what I’m used to walking. Not a huge deal, but I’ve always feared the enormous hills that you have to walk up to get back home. Turns out, those hills are enormous, but they’re not to be feared at all. I like these signs that I’m in better shape this year than last.
After the walk we took a lovely afternoon nap, had dinner, and did some yard work. I got the front garden weeded & trimmed some of the weeds growing along the side of the house. Hubby mowed the lawn. Things are looking good now, but we need a few more perennials to fill in where some of the less-hearty ones didn’t survive the winter…that’s the plan for after the run & after the storms pass.
In other news, getupnow’s coconut chicken recipe was a hit with our dinner guests on Friday night. We usually play around with recipes, so with this one instead of the curry & other ingredients, we added orange & lemon zest to the coconut, used Wheaties instead of corn flakes (cause that’s what we had on hand), and seasoned the flour with paprika and cayenne pepper. Was very yummy! All we were missing was periwinkle’s recipe for iced coffee.
Okay ya’ll, that’s all for now! Have a lovely Sunday!
