Tired In Rear End, oh, man...after walking so much yesterday at a Christmas festival event & sitting in a vehicle to and from B'ham, my "bum" is TIRED!

a few of us at a moment's notice

The Christmas Village Festival Event was held at BJCC. This was my first visit to the festival and definitely not my last one. I have never been to an event where so many vendors (over 700) and PEOPLE SHOPPING were all gathered together. WOW!!!  

There were two shopping levels. Clothing (adults & children), jewelry, wooden signs, food prep pkgs., painted artwork, foods, and so much more. It was so much fun.

a little snack before shopping on the lower level floor 

After shopping both floor levels, we drove over to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Munching on some lettuce chicken wraps left a lot of room for the delicious Craig's Crazy Carrot Cake Cheesecake.

One thing I was missing.....i didn't see waitress "Penny".

Buddy Walk

Today in Dothan we celebrated the 8th Annual Wiregrass Buddy Walk at Landmark Park. This event was family friendly with carnival games, Trunk R Treat, a rock wall, face painting, inflatables, & lots of other fun things to do. Clowns & characters were dressed & available for picture taking. Music was blaring & children, and adults, were dancing.

Opening ceremonies began around 10 AM. In this first picture you will see most all of the team members for the event. The second picture shows the crowd.

I participated in the Buddy Walk in support of my friend, Mike Devine. He and a friend of his were Team Double D. The left and right photos below show their team banners. The banner in the middle is the banner that was displayed and signed at their first ever Buddy Walk eight years ago.

When I walk in the mornings with Gayle, there are mornings when we see Mike & I get a great big hug and a hello. His neighbor is another good friend, Ms. Audrey. Such a fun, fun day together.

A lot of people joined in the activities & fun; 
just visiting with one another.

Celebrating 30 Days of Yoga

For a while now I had seen a few pictures on Facebook of a friend who practiced yoga. I was amazed.

I recently spoke to her and commented on her yoga pictures/poses. She was very encouraging & offered advice on how to start. So I decided to give it a try. Now mind you, I will probably never be able to do the poses shown above that she does...she is quite younger than me.

So I started with Pre-Yoga...............for 2 days (a 20 & a 40 min session) and then began a 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

This was Day 15 for me.

Today I finished the 30-Day Challenge...
