I'm ready for the weekend.  I know it will be easier to get through with proper choices than last weekend but it doesn't mean that it'll be any less busy.  Some of our plans are set in stone but I can only imagine that some impromptu activities will also play in the mix.  It's good to be busy.  I do hope that some of those activities include walking.

I had to go out at noon yesterday to get my boss something for lunch.  I wasn't much in the mood for walking and I forgot to bring my tenny's so I was just going to miss a day.  My projected calories for the day looked good and I really didn't need any activity calories to keep me out of the red.  I headed to Paradise Cafe which is a couple of blocks away and when I got there the line was out the door.  A little Divine Intervention here.  The thought came to mind to take a short walk and I'd deal with whatever line there was when I got back.  I walked for about 25 minutes and when I got back there was only two or three people in front of me.  Yes, sometimes it does take that push ... and positive thinking.

I had a new experience last night.  Gary and I went to our first Wine and Canvas.  It seems to be popular in the Midwest.  It's a three hour session (with adult beverages) and the instructor prompts you step by step creating your own masterpiece.  I thought it was a masterpiece for my husband but mine ... oh well, beauty is seen in the eye of the beholder.  But it was a fun evening.  We met a friend there and had a great time.  I'm not sure if I want to do it again.  They said the "Lighthouse" was more challenging than other pieces, so maybe we'll go to "Date Night" at the end of September when wine glasses don't look as difficult.  I've posted a picture of Gary and Peggy.  You can see a little of my painting to the left of Peggy's picture
