An ordinary week

It's been an uneventful week and sometimes those are the best kind.  Here is my list of things I'm grateful for. 

1.  I started back on my walking routine with my friend Joan.  We both had to take a break for a few months.  Plantar fasciitis for me and a broken foot for her!  So, we're starting out slowly.

2.  I totally canceled out any extra calories burned this week with eating out.  Argh!  Yesterday I met my friend Kathy for breakfast at this place.  I had an open faced omelet topped with goat cheese, spinach, tomato, roasted mushrooms and arugula.  It was to die for and actually quite healthy.  The not-so-healthy was going to the donut shop after exercising on Wednesday:(

3.  A new journal.

4.  Finding this website and writing some letters.  Such a great idea and I feel blessed to get to be a part of it.

5.  I'll leave you with a picture. This little guy feebly crawled on my pen yesterday morning.  After observing him for a little while, I gently placed him in the flower garden. 


How was your week? If you'd like to share, link up for Friday Fave Five at Living to Tell the Story

Sounds like a wonderful week! Calories don't count after workout by the way ;) Have a great weekend!

My week was uneventful and I am looking forward to the holiday weekend.

Cheers to the little guy on your pen and returning to walking with your friend.

That omelet sounds awesome! Nothing like a good breakfast omelet.

Oh I LOVE buying a new journal. I have several; it's so much fun picking a new one out and then writing in the first page.

Um, yeah that little guy is creepy but how neat that he just perched on your pen!!

Cheers, Anita.

I'e bookmarked the "Girls Love Mail" site. What a nice idea. I've always said that the art of letter writing was becoming lost. Loved the bee picture. He must have liked the color of the pen!

Neat macro shots of the guy on your pen. It's always nice to have a friend to do things with, like walk.

Love that photo of the honeybee! Hope he makes it back to the hive OK.
Just keep walking :)

Ah, the blessing of an ordinary week! I love the joys you noted from the little bee to the delicious calories consumed ;-)

I've got to get back on track after much eating out on holidays! And I love breakfast out. Our hotel had made to order omelets and I way over indulged. Glad to hear you're back to walking. That is a neat letter writing idea.
