       Country Guy and I went to Champaign yesterday to look at recumbent exercise bikes.  I have been thinking that I need to find a way to get some exercise during the winter when I'm not working outside.  I happened to read an article about these machines.  If I could watch TV or read a book while I'm exercising I think I would be more inclined to stick with it.  Anyway we tried out a few different ones and now we are attempting to decide which one, and if we will use it enough to make it worth the money.
     While we were in Champaign we called Tanya, one of the girls we met this summer, to see if she was available for dinner.  We met at Escobar's Restaurant which I found by searching online.  Since we had never been there we didn't know what to expect, but it was such fun!  The food was excellent and the atmosphere seemed almost like we were on vacation.  We are looking forward to going again the next time we are in Champaign.
     Today Mom & I went Christmas shopping in Terre Haute.   I didn't find much, but then I'm not going to do much shopping.   Mom found several gifts and is now feeling a little better about being prepared for Christmas.  We were surprised how few people there were in the Mall.  It seems many people may be cutting back on shopping.
      Two days in a row of shopping are about all I can take this week!  I know some people love to shop but not me!  How about you?  Do you enjoy shopping?  Are you one of those, like my sister, who is almost finished with her Christmas shopping because she enjoys it so much?
