Lazy Saturday Morning

in All Posts

Greetings from Palm Coast, Florida.  I love visiting my in-laws because they live in this picture-perfect Florida home next to the intracoastal waterway.


I woke up first, around 7:00 AM.  Why can’t I sleep in on the weekends!?  I think the reason is a little dachshund named Maggie….


I had a bowl of cereal outside on the patio:


My cereal included 1 cup of a Nature’s Path raisin-brand knock-off and 1/2 a sliced banana


My in-laws only had Vanilla Soy Milk.  This was my first time trying Soy Milk and I must admit it was pretty good.


To help breakfast digest, I took the doggies on a 1 mile stroll around the neighborhood.  We headed towards my favorite trail:


Maggie and James just love this path.  I think they feel like they’re in a tropical jungle!


Eventually, we found a bench near the water and took a break for about 10 minutes.  It was nice to just be outside and hear the birds chirping.  You can tell it’s going to be a hot one!


Is this not the face of pure doggie bliss or what?


After our walk, I had a small bowl of fruit.


Now, I’m going to help my mother-in-law lay down new tile (my knees are hurting in anticipation!).  I hope to make it to the community gym at some point, too.


Have a wonderful Saturday!

    Wow, the area looks so picture-perfect. What a great getaway! And I haven’t tried soy milk either yet! It’s reassuring that you like it though. I’ll have to try it soon, lest the blog-world shuns me!

    Your in-laws live in such a lovely place! I think one of the first posts I read of yours was when you were house-sitting for them last year. So pretty!

    i noticed you haven’t been eating much meat (if at all?) since you read Skinny Bitch- did it turn you into a vegetarian?

  • Dori May 9, 2009, 4:27 pm

    James looks ADORABLE and happy! Awww!!

    allie – it did kind of turn me into a veggie… i just dont want to declare my veggie status yet in case i fall off the wagon!
