Walking for Donuts? Is that what Lovella had in mind?

Dear and I decided to walk along the main road outside our neighborhood today so we could check out Calleguas Creek after the rains we’ve had all week. The sun was shining and the skies were clear.


This creek is generally pretty dry with maybe a trickle once in a while. The rain storms we’ve been having have made the creek flow strong and constant. (This photo was taken after the last rain storm, not today, but the creek looked just like this today with bluer skies)

We continued up the road.


The grade you see in the distance is what Dear has to travel everyday to get to work.

Oh no, look what I see, a donut shop. But here we are on a healthy walk…


On the way back to the Condo I got a shot of the Creek on the opposite side of the road.

Now where did that come from and how did it make it all the way to my condo?

I’m hopeless people!  Not only were my walking numbers way down this week (6108 avg.) I rewarded myself for my dismal efforts with a donut! Not a little donut either.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. The Professor and I walked this morning too. I took photos of the snow covered hills. Wasn’t it a great day for a brisk, invigorating walk?

    No donut shops, Palermo or Starbucks on our route…otherwise…

  2. Oh Ellen you are so fun. Oh course I meant that you should walk to the donut shop. That is one mighty good looking donut.
    So, next week, when you walk to that donut shop .. .just make sure you eat it and finish it before dinner. That way you can further feel successful that you aren’t nibbling in the evening hours.

  3. The fact that I had absolutely no difficulty recognizing aforementioned item as a bearclaw tells you that I have done the same thing. Fiddle-dee-dee; tomorrow’s another day!

  4. Ladies,
    Thanks for all your support!

    Beth, more snow? what a season Wa. is having…

    Willow, It was wonderful. We got out the best part of the day cuz now the clouds seem to be rolling in…

    Lovella, I like your rules, just eat the goodies before dinner and don’t munch after dinner…

    Jody, the man says that barley would be a lot more fun than a donut if you make beer or whisky with it…

    rosemary, you are totally correct, and I’m fiddle-dee-deeing with you…

  5. Wow! That thing is HUGE! I’ve heard of them, but have never seen a bearclaw! Thanks for including a pic!!

    Are they fried like a Krispy Kreme or are they cake donuts?

    Hi Leslie, Yep fried not a cake donut… This particular one was filled with an apple filling.

  6. What a beautiful spot you live in. What lovely pictures. Oh and that donut! At least you worked for it! You deserved to enjoy it to the fullest. Found you, somehow, through One World, One Heart event.

    Hi Rosemary, It’s nice to meet you…thanks for leaving a comment…

  7. I have been on this diet and have not had any donuts! Umm…. that looks so good. It is so good for your body to walk. Sounds like you are doing great with it. Loved the pictures.

    Cheryl, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Blessings…

  8. Seriously LOL – you are a riot. Splurging is what keeps on going friend!!

    Now, come on over when you can. I’ve tagged you for a meme. Play if you like. Here it is:

    Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Hi Ronda! Thanks and I’ll see if I can figure out that meme…I’m so challenged some times. 🙂

  9. When you eat a donut and walk……….well,………at least your legs are stronger. Thats my story and I’m stick’n to it.

  10. I love your photos. They make me wish I was there to see first hand what you are photographing (and eating… oh well). Look for a blogging award I’m sending your way. Check out your “dashboard” to find it.

  11. Hi Ellen:
    I love your pictures and your name !!! My name is Ellen also and I chuckle when I see other blogs by other Ellen’s. I think our name is fabulous. Do you ever get called Elaine? It seems as though I get called Elaine more than Ellen. Oh well…I like both names.

    Have a great weekend!


  12. Mmmm!!!! Donuts….
    It looks so good, I might just have to buy one today
    Thank you for inspiring me.
    Where you live looks lovely

  13. Hey, at least you walked! It could have been worse…

    Maybe next time eat half the donut and save the other half for the next day…maybe that will double the donut enjoyment with half the calories! There seems to be a flaw in my logic somewhere….
