Cindy Florida Monday 12:50-1:15 PM

Today I found a way to creatively sneak a walk into my day. Between shopping, cleaning, bill paying, appt setting etc... I decided to take a breather and find a place to walk, if only for a few minutes. On my way to food shopping, I stopped in a nearby strip mall and walked quickly from one end to the other and back again.


I tried out my panoramic setting on my new camera ( I still have some work to do in figuring out how to get the most from this camera).


I "speed" window shopped along the way.


I walked to the far end of the strip mall, Super Target. It was a little bit chilly, so I went into Target and walked quickly around the entire perimeter of the store and exited at the other end in the gardening dept.


I walked back to the other end of the shopping center and went in World Market for a lap around the store. I bought a heart shaped pancake maker for $2.99 and left!

Total walk time was about 25 minutes!

Did you walk today?!
I'd love to hear about it:)

I feel like we shopped together! And, you snuck the heart in too. :) I love it. Very inspiring. Walk, Shop, Click, Connect!

Love your mosaics. Which program do you use? Glad you got a walk in anyway. I only got to do up and down the aisles doing the grocery shopping today as I slept in and had two early, little visitors for a tutoring session, then visitors for a lunceon outing and then shopping. That's actually a busy day for retirees.

I never would have thought a shopping mall/strip mall could be photographable (a word?), but those are some great shots.

I'd love to join the team.
