Wednesday Walk

Good morning!
I headed out for a walk after breakfast.  The only one crazy enough to be out there.
Hazy skies meant that the heat was not so overbearing.  Of course, the last few blocks home were the worst.   No trees, no shade and 106 degrees (it's 113 out there now).
 This row of corn used to be so tall and green but has burnt to a crisp in the heat.
I was on the hunt for rocks again and came home with three. The great thing is they don't have to be absolutely smooth or perfect since yarn can be manipulated to fit nicely no matter the shape or size.
Back home, after a quick shower, a healthy snack is necessary. Fresh cherries, raw almonds, dried fruit, organic tea or orange juice.
A great way to start the day.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Oh, sweetie, I just don't know how you are doing this. Thanks for the story about your A.C., great reminder just how sweet we do have it here in the Chicago-land burbs. I'm going to have to start having lite breakfasts like you all soon.

Anne said...

Tammy, that's what I'll be doing this morning but walking indoors on my treadmill! Your healthy snack looks really yummy.

Jan said...

ROCKS! I have rocks.....you can have as many as you want!!!! Our town sits on an old river bed so there are TONS of smooth ones, too! Come on over and take some!

Have you ever had Tamari Almonds? I get them at the natural food store here and my husband LOVES them. They have a nice little 'kick' to them and aren't as hard as regular ones.

I just came in from watering....another hot one here (for us) today. Now all the plants are smiling because they got a nice bath!

You go girl.....walking in that heat! I'd be a puddle!

Hugs
Jan

Happy First Day of Summer! Hooray. You are such a good girl for taking your walks and eating healthy. You inspire me and I am grateful. Happy crocheting over the non-smooth rocks.

Elna said...

Even the photo's look hot. Nice rocks you found.

Linda said...

You're such a healthy eater! :) We're not quite like that an no one eats breakfast here at our house except on rare occasion.

Good for you on going walking! I'm hoping to hit our bikes tonight but only after an afternoon floating in our pool. Perfect day for it.

Have a nice evening,
Linda :)

Susan said...

Good for you, Tammy. Your walking is admirable. It's in the 90s here and hotter than a wet oven. So am I walking? Nooooo. I'm typing into my computer with the fan aimed directly at me. Hope you have a wonderful day. Susan

val said...

almonds are soooo yummy! I wish I could send you a box'o'rocks....but could you imagine the cost? And at inspection they'd be like..."what?"

angeliki said...

Hi Tammy! I want to ask you, you can actually walk with 106F??? Cause if you can you're a hero!
Your snack looks yammy! I prefer flakes for breakfast,
Have a nice day,
Angeliki

You are wise to get outside and take an early morning walk as exercise. When I lived in a hot area my hubby and I would walk late in the evening, at 9 or 10 o'clock. Stay cool.

Are you sure you are not out here, in my garden, in Texas? LOL The same heat and conditions are here! Stay cool and realax!

kimmie said...

one of my favorite things to do is go hunting for rocks .... the yellowish one looks just like a dinner roll :)

you have a very healthy breakfast - mine was cornflakes with a banana - not that bad I guess :)

glor said...

Oh you brave girl, I'm complaining about 98 degrees and you've got 113 and walking in 106! You go girl!

All4MeggyMoo said...

I'm starting to think your a little crazy (in the nicest way of course) walking around in that heat.
lovely healthy snacks to come home to tho :)

Astri said...

Mmmmm...what is that yummy looking yogurt or porridge with the nuts? Whatever it is I want some!

Kathleen said...

Good heavens, you must be made of strong stuff. Walking in 106 degrees and voluntarily at that! It's just 64 degrees here at the minute. I think somewhere in between my temperature and yours would be a nice happy medium, don't you?

Rizzi said...

You must be drinking gallons of water walking in 106 temps.....so hot
today it is in the 90's and sooooo humid.......I like looking for rocks too.....I kids used to paint them and make animals and a village of little houses....have a cool day....rizzi

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Wow, that is hot. I mean, really hot. Please take care out there and drinks lots of water.

Love the photos! :)

Blessings always

peli said...

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Tammy,

A lovely start to your day - always the best time to go out walking before the sun gets too hot.

Hope you manage to stay cool and enjoy the rest of the week

Thank you so much for visiting my blog from your desert country far, far away. I live in the desert mountains of California, at around 4,100 feet, so it gets cool at night in the summer and snows in the winter. Summer days are around 90-100, but nearly always windy, which helps. It's been 110 here, but not often. I don't see how you can walk in that heat and hope you drink plenty of water. I think your blog is very interesting, it looks like you've been just about everywhere.

Oh, my that is so hot! You snack look so good! Wishing you a great, and hopefully cooler week! xo Heather

Mrs. Micawber said...

You seem so disciplined about your food - good for you! (I am a real slacker when it comes to healthy snacks.)

That yoghurt-y honey photo at the top does look interesting.

Maple Lane said...

The cherries and almonds look so delicious to me! I purchased cherries at the market earlier this week. Hope you have a nice day.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

You are amazing!! Keep on keeping on! Cherries and almonds are two of my favorite snacks, too. ;) The white rock reminds me of a yeast roll!! Can't wait to see him dressed up with crochet. blessings ~ tanna

Mistea said...

Oh my it is the other extreme here in single digits C most morning and today rain, rain and very dull all day.
Enjoy the walking and the fossicking.

Rostrose said...

Oh Tammy, you are a hardworking walker! And what do you wear while walking through the street-sauna? Yesterday I thought, it's like a Sauna in Vienna, too - but may be you laugh at me: Indoors (in the office where I work) we had 30,7 degrees Celsius, and my colleagues and I felt like half-dead meat-flies ;o) I was so happy when the thunderstorm came in the evening!!! Your idea to collect stones and to crochet a "dress" for them is so lovely!

How did I get so far behind on reading blogs? You are amazing...walking in that heat! How far do you walk? That snack/breakfast looks good. I'm always looking for healthy snacks to eat and that looks like a great combo! Stay cool!
