We moved into our new house a little over a week ago. Then we had a visitor arrive by mail - Flat Stanley! Hannah in Indiana sent him to visit us. Boy, isn't he lucky missed moving all that heavy furniture!
Fit Stanley is the brain child of my good friend, Mizfit.)
So, once we got some unpacking done, we got back to our normal schedule. One of my favorite things to do on Saturday morning is go to the local farmer's market. We buy fresh fruit and vegetables, and by buying them at the market, we are supporting local farmers.
This week, we bought a big bunch of collard greens (a favorite food here in South Carolina), a small decoration pumpkin, some zucchini, and some cucumbers.
After the farmer's market, we did some yard work because Fit Stanley insisted that we do something active. By lunch, we had worked up a big appetite, so I made Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles that everyone enjoyed. My 4 year old daughter loved sharing her waffles with the Stanleys, even though she doesn't look very happy in the picture.
After lunch, we did some more yard work (sorry that there isn't a picture of that, we were so dirty and sweaty!). Then we had a healthy dinner of whole wheat spaghetti and salad, including the fresh cucumbers that we had bought at the farmer's market. (But no mushrooms, because Hannah said that Flat Stanley doesn't like them.)
On Sunday morning, we always go to church. My husband and I lead worship, so the Stanleys joined right in. They are both very good singers!
After church, we went to Sunday School. My Sunday School class doesn't usually have treats, but today we did - donuts. Fit Stanley said it was okay to have one donut because it was a special treat, and treats are okay to have every once in a while.
Then we came home and had veggie and cheese omelets for lunch, and settled in to watch my favorite football team, the Steelers. Both Fit Stanley and Flat Stanley are big football fans.
We didn't do anything special this weekend, just our normal activities. But it was fun to include both Flat Stanley and Fit Stanley. I'm going for a run in the morning. I know Fit Stanley will be up for it. I wonder if we can convince Flat Stanley to come along too?
