This past weekend, we took Izzy to South Mountain Reservation to meet up with her best bud Minnie to do some hiking. I use the term hiking loosely. The first trail we headed up turned out to be a road, and not so much a trail. There were downed trees and branches from the recent freak snow storm in October which made it a bit more challenging, but we were quite disappointed.
After attempting to read a map, we headed up another real trail, heading the wrong way, but enjoying ourselves none the less. Izzy and Minnie had a great time being "country dogs" and us humans got some exercise.
The hike wore Izzy out to the point that after getting her leash on for her evening walk, she planted in the doorway and refused to go out. Skinny Fat Kid carried her outside where she finally got on her feet and stopped being so stubborn!
It was a good thing Izzy was exhausted because I needed to focus 100% of my attention on the TV for Pats vs. Jets. Huge game. Huge win. Easy dinner was ready to rock for kick-off. I think this chili was one of my first blog posts ever. Way better pics now with my Canon Rebel though! Click here for original recipe. And I made probably the best whole wheat cornbread ever. All in all, a nice little Sunday.
