Mother's Day plans anyone? Emily and I will be going out to breakfast with my parents. Good old Bob Evans. We've done that for the last few years, but we've always been a crowd. This year there will only be 4 of us. I'm not sure what we'll be doing afterwards. Maybe some shopping?

It was another long day at work, but like all the others, it had a beginning and an end. I hung out at Borders for a while after work, then went to the library before heading home. The first thing I did was to clear out the downspout by my garage. My gutters have been overflowing. I'm not crazy about ladders, but got up on one and used a hose to clear out the blockage. It was full of the stems that held the berries that recently fell off the pear tree. I have other gutters that need cleaning, but this is the only one I'll brave. I hate having to pay for help, but I really need to find a handyman.

I went on another long walk. I think it's time to find my pedometer again, now that it seems like I'll stick with it. I used Em's iTouch and it was kind of nice listening to music as I walked. I always chew gum too, and I think I chew in sync with my strides. I'm sick of the gum by the time I get home! We don't have any paths in my neighborhood so everyone uses the sidewalks. It really is great to see all the people out and about.

I'll end here for now.

Happy Mother's Day, mothers.

Dude, I would have such a sore jaw, or I would end up walking really slow, which I do anyway. I'm so proud of you for all your walking. Was this influenced by Happy One? She definitely had an impact on my habits. The pedometer makes walking really fun. Happy Mother's Day, good friend. xoxoxo

i always walk better with gum. My little dog gets all excited when i put some in my mouth because she knows she's going too.

Happy Mother's Day dear friend. I hope you are enjoying this beautiful day.

Check out this website. You can trace your walk to see how far you walked. It's really cool. I use it when I foget to wear my pedometer.

Happy Mother's Day!!

I hope your MOther's Day was a happy time from beginning to end.

Be careful climbing to clean gutters. It costs a lot less to pay someone to do the work than it does to pay doctor bills if you are injured.

Happy Mother's Day to you. Our day here was dark, cold and rainy. Perfect day to stay inside and view movies or read. I did both. My daughter brought me a bouquet of lilacs (one of my favorites) earlier and the whole house is filled with their fragrance. mmmmm nice.

Sounds like such a peaceful and happy day. I am very proud of you walking every day, that is hard to do. You keep on goin, girl!

I like Bob Evans...I'll bet it was a good time.

Have a good week ahead. :)

I love your family traditions:)
I also have a thing for sidewalks. I love to hike on trails or in the woods, but when I come home, I love to see sidewalks.
