The Original Blogging Bug came from here.........

I enjoyed my Labor Day morning in my P.J.'s, catching up on blogging and laundry and sipping coffee. Did you know that Labor Day has been celebrated since the 1800's?? Neither did I!

When I finally changed out of my P.J.'s, it was 1:00 p.m. and I hopped on the treadmill. While deciding if I wanted to listen to Pandora for an hour, or watch TV, I discovered Julie and Julia was just beginning! I LOVE this movie! I love the stories, I love the cooking, I love the blogging, I love the title, I love it all! I lost all track of time, and walked for 85 minutes, remembering that my original blogging bug came from this movie!

One of my Favorite Movies!

When I did get off the treadmill......At 5.0 miles.......

.......Tucker got on it, as if to say......"Please take ME for a walk!"

Later Buddy, I'm exhausted!

I later snacked on some almonds and Kashi cereal, but never really did have lunch? I guess lunch was almonds and Kashi?

What's YOUR favorite movie?

"love the life you live, live the life you love"


  1. Mary Poppins has always been my favorite movie. She's my idol...I want to be just like Mary Poppins when I grow up!

    1. I should re watch that one. All I can think of is an umbrella and a red and white striped jacket! :)

  2. My daughter watched Julie and Julia this weekend. I havent watched the movie but I did enjoy the book. Your omelets always look so good and I am on the search for some good pumpkin butter without a bunch of added "stuff" in it. Have a great Tuesday!

    1. I would love to mail you a jar of mine. You interested??

    2. Yay! What's your mailing address?
