Here is why I didn't have time to walk, although I could have if I had gotten my coffee down faster...
I joined Mom with a one day trip to the Amish country within a 2 1/2 hour distance of home. I also brought along our Youngest daughter, who was on Spring break from school. The others were either working or had class. Hubby, was a tired man when I arrived home last night.
I woke up at 1am, and saw Hubby dressed and leaving. He took a call out for work, and at 5am I was up because I can't sleep when he is gone. He then worked his normal shift. Yeah, he was tired. I did my weight training, ate a few eggs, downed some coffee and got picked up for the trip.
It rained the entire day, and was foggy, but we still had a good time. Mom made me her "picture taker" so I was in the passenger seat getting them for her, along with my daughter taking pictures from the back seat (raining the entire time).
We shopped until we literally dropped and all stores has closed. Most closed at 5pm, but the grocery store was open until 6pm (a fun place to get local cheese, breads, bulk foods etc.). We didn't get to a few other places, but I managed to talk her into going to my favorite restaurant and getting a dinner to go for Hubby. He devoured it at 9pm when we arrived home.
We spent quite a long time at the t-shirt vendor, while Mom picked out her shirts. They had the best music playing there. I loved this camper shirt, so I snapped a photo, for a future trip. I just had to be very frugal on this trip, so I snapped photos of everything I liked. My biggest frugal find was a pair of reader-sunglasses for $6. Mom bought a pair too.
It was dark on the way home, but on the way there, I managed to get a few rows into this. I had to put it down often to give directions and explain to watch out for tight curves in the road. I'm thinking I should drive next trip, ha ha! I felt like I was riding with a female version of Mario Andretti (ha ha ha!). And for those in my family who know how my husband drives some times, this was way more crazier (putting it politely, ha ha ha ha!).
All in all, we came home with local Parmesan that will be going in my freezer, along with beer cheese and Asiago. I almost brought home live culture probiotic feta, but it was pretty expensive. Maybe next trip.
Now, since we didn't make it to the health store there, I'll be searching the internet (or calling one store ) within a 25-30 minute drive, to locate dried herb.
I have no idea what's on the agenda today. I was a bit flabbergasted to find out Hubby has the day off today. It's wet out and may rain (again). Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
