Beat the Heat
I had a wonderful walk on the beach this morning despite the blazing heat. The weather bulletin says it's "only" 88°F but it feels hotter, even with the light breeze from the ocean wafting by. Still, I did my usual 30 minutes, about 1.5 miles but I think it counts as more of a workout since I'm barefoot on the hard Daytona Beach sand. Don't you agree?
Hard as I tried, though, I couldn't keep up with this older gentleman..I'd speed up and pass him yet within a few minutes there he was, leaving me in the dust! Either he's in amazingly good shape or he just has an advantage over me with those long legs. Yeah, that's it!
We got home, unloaded the car and then I started planning a menu for the rest of the weekend. Since some of my kids & their friends are on the road, heading this way...
I'll be feeding the "normal" amount of people instead of just little ol' me & Beren. We will definitely be doing a BBQ tomorrow, happened to find this interesting-looking salad from Real Simple, never would have considered this combination of produce, what do you think?
Since I have everything on hand, I'm gonna give it a try, will let you know how it turns out.
In the meantime, I'm going to go play with my dog..he apparently knows his friend's on the way and only wants to sit in front the window and wait for her!
Have a Beauty-Full Day,
