When you take a dog hiking at 11:15 a.m. in the middle of the summer in Florida, you’re left with one hot dog on the drive home.
Yes, those towels were there to catch her slobber.
Hiking is probably our favorite thing to do in Ocala, but we haven’t gone in quite a while because the horseflies got so bad when the weather warmed up. Today we sprayed our bodies with hardcore “Deep Woods” bug spray, filled up some water bottles and set out in the heat for a short three-mile hike.
Sadie was happy to be back out on the trails!
(As I’m sure you can tell from the above picture, my Mommy 2012 campaign to be Sadie’s favorite is in serious jeopardy.)
It was a sweaty hike, but it felt good to get out there and explore a little.
When we arrived home, we were quite hungry.
To take the edge off, I ate a banana while I assembled a salad.
Today’s salad was a repeat of my watermelon, arugula, spinach and feta salad only this time I used salt and olive oil rather than a pomegranate dressing.
My favorite summer salad!
I was still a little hungry after lunch, so I popped myself a bag of snack size butter popcorn.
Ryan and I have dinner plans in Orlando tonight, so I’m off to shower and change into something other than sweaty gym clothes.
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
