We Eat, Therefore We Walk.

 So far this year we're getting our daily walk in.  Mostly at sunset. 

5 down, 360 to go.  At least that's the plan. 

 Sometimes after walking we just get in the truck and drive around to take more pictures.

Like this evening.   But we really should concentrate more on our walking. 

Do you know how easy it is for us to get side tracked while out walking around here? 

Like when we run into someone else out for their daily walk. 

Hi Jake.  Paw.

Because mostly when we're not out walking, we're usually eating.  This is what happens when you get a new diversion, like say, a new cookie stamp. 

 It's already my 2nd batch this year.  Oh dear. 

And then there's our evening cup of hot cocoa too. 

Our new resolution:  No walkie, no eatie.

Of course, it goes without saying how much I love the views where you live. Oh, I love them so much.

My hubby and I walked
nearly every day out in
Washington over Christmas.
My parents live in the
country and I never tire
of seeing the snow-capped
mountains in the background,
farmhouses, barns, horses
and livestock in the foreground.
And, the sunrises and sunsets
are amazing. I am envious that
it is mild enough in Maine to
walk in the winter. It's in
the minus digits in the mornings
and evenings here in Minnesota,
this week! My flu is winding down,
so I should be back exercising,
soon. I miss it {and all the
treats that you earn}!!
Happy Friday, Lili!
xx Suzanne
PS: GREAT pics!!

Well Lili dear,

First of all ADORABLE cookie stamp and ADORABLE Jake. I like your mantra NO WALKIE NO EATIE. I need to adopt that one.

Sending love for a great weekend. And, of course I've spent many an hour in the old Chicken Barn bookstore. How could anyone pass it by? Glad you liked my book post. Moving books is a back breaker!

Love to you,

Love this Lili!!! Those sunset photos take my breath away! You have captured them beautifully.

Love meeting Jake- what a sweetie!

The new cookie stamp if total fab! I would be baking every day too- except my resolution is to get back on the exercise wagon also. Going to start attending a new exercise class with some of my work buddies- it's called Boot Camp. (if that don't scare you- nothing will!)

A beautiful,beautiful post Lili.
