OMG…this bowl rocked my socks off! What a GREAT tasting breakfast!
As I was eating I could see that some very ominous clouds were rolling in. Sure enough, by the time we left it had started to rain. When we arrived we registered, picked up our t-shirts, snapped a family photo all before Mother Nature unleashed her fury. Here we are!
Boy did it RAIN! Actually, that’s too mild a word….it TEEMED! They actually had to delay the walk because there was so much thunder and lightening. When I checked the weather later on I realized that our region had been under a severe thunderstorm watch! Luckily, we nabbed a spot under the covered bridge and managed to stay somewhat dry. I took some pictures of the storm while we were waiting;
Finally the rain stopped and we were on our way. I was a little worried that it would be really muggy, but it was on the cool side which was perfect for our intent. The sun even came out at the half point mark! They always put on a great lunch for the participants and this year was no exception. They served roast beef sammies with sautéed onions, chickpea & pasta salad and assorted fresh fruit. I grabbed a sandwich, some chickpea salad, watermelon and apple…
At least half of the beef that you see here made it’s way to my hubby’s plate. Too much for moi! We stuck around for a bit so the kids could watch the entertainer they had for the little ones, but were still home by noon.
Before I forget, I put my chia seeds to good use last night. I mixed 2 tbsp of the seeds with a half cup of pure pressed, thick mango juice and let it sit for about a half hour. When it was all thick I added a dollop of Cool Whip Free and went to town!
Sorry for the crap photo. I didn’t realize how dark it was until I uploaded it to the computer! Post picture, the cool whip got mixed in and I enjoyed a lovely snack!! We also took some picture’s of or killer cat, Pepper, in action. Check out the ferociousness!
Here he is with his Polly pocket jacket that he covets like nobody’s business!
What a beast! :)
DS had a b-day party all afternoon so the rest of us enjoyed some down time while he was gone. That brings us up to dinner plans! We’re meeting 2 of my childhood friends along with their hubby’s and kids for dinner. The gals both live out of town now so it’s difficult to get together by we try to as much as possible. All of us have 2 kids….a girl and boy each. We laugh how the 3 of us morphed into 12! Dinner’s a little later than I’m use to so I snacked on a 1/2 cup of strained NF yogurt with blueberries, strawberries banana jam and some Dorset cereal.
This will tie me over nicely. I’ll leave you here now and continue today’s story in tomorrow’s post!!
Bye for now!
