How many laps around the barn will it take to work off a bite-size Snickers?
I need to know.
You see….I raided the Halloween candy basket this weekend.
Who does stuff like that?
It’s not something I am proud of.
Probably not my finest hour or a story to be passed down from generation to generation.
I meant to eat just one.
One tiny bite sized Snickers.
But the candy basket kept calling.
The Reese’s and the Milky Way and the Hershey’s all told me they were feeling left out.
And right now I think I might have bite-sized my way to a new exercise program.
So I’m starting the program tomorrow.
Tomorrow is always the best day to start.
Tomorrow I’m marking out a path through the fall leaves and over the hills and through the woods.
And around the barn.
The thing is…..if four times around the barn equals one bite-sized Snicker bar…..
……I think I’m going to be walking the Boston Marathon
And last week…..somewhere between raiding the candy basket and planning for the Boston Marathon.
I became a contributor to the Folk Magazine blog.
Can you believe it?
I am so excited!
Have you heard of Folk Magazine?
It is amazing.
Truly one-of-a kind.
It’s a magazine devoted entirely to embracing a simpler country lifestyle.
Full of stories and beautiful photographs and how-to’s and recipes and features about life here in this America that we all know and love.
In an era when life is rushing by at break-neck speed….Folk magazine is a refreshing alternative.
There are articles on shopping and collecting and gardening and cooking and home remodeling and decorating and entertaining and travel.
Told from a fresh and unique perspective.
And today I am blessed and so full of joy to tell you that I am posting over on Folk’s blog.
So grab your cup of coffee or tea or diet coke or sparkling water and join me over here!
But can we keep the Halloween candy thing just between us
