I've never been to a US Lidl's only an Aldi's. They aren't too bad if you're looking for deals. Some of their fresh produce can be much cheaper than the standard supermarkets. However, if you shop in the 99 c stores you'll find Lidl's far more expensive. Their range of electrical home alliances and leisure wear is also good value for money.We're getting Lidl's - maybe in September! I have no idea what it is about.
I ran/walked my route backwards this morning. I don't know why I don't do it more often as I get a much better view of the train bridge if I start out going left instead of right. I think I like to get the big hill out of the way sooner into my excursion than later.
I walked for an hour today (including my trip to Lidl's) despite it being warm. I'm quite pleased because I have been bad with exercise due many health and other personal issues.
