Gauchos have been referred to as “old lady capris”, but I consider them timeless wardrobe pieces. I own several pairs and love them because they can be worn during any season – winter with boots; spring with open toe shoes; summer with sandals; fall with tights and booties. Today I opted to wear with a double, bow back top, a tri-metal belt and metallic liz claiborne slides. Poison ivy has spread and I am trying hard to keep it away from my face, right now it just the arms and 1 leg..

No makeup, heels or jewelry, only shorts/tanks, sandals and a bathing suit for 5 wonderful, sun-filled days. Whether it’s called a VACATION or STAYCATION, living “the Life of Riley” is a beautiful thing. Sleeping in late; eating breakfast on the back deck; poolside lounging; laughing with and loving family and friends was the perfect way to spend the long July 4th Holiday. It was also the first time that we did not go out to watch fireworks, I did however, watch Wawa Welcome America and loved Lauryn Hill’s surprise performance. I was also able to watch more of the Twilight Zone Marathon, “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith is my favorite episode! I did do a little yard work and paid the price with my annual case of poison ivy – oh how I hate the itch!!!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and now it’s back to reality!

Unfortunately the poison ivy is spreading down my arm and I could not find the clear ointment. Today I am sporting a polka dot arm with my a polka dot dress – what a way to start the summer season!

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Holiday weekend, the unofficial start of summer 2012. My men and I had a nice weekend and I spent most of my time outdoors working in the yard and opening the pool. The temperature was in the low 90’s and I didn’t realize how intense the sun was nor did I see the poison ivy intertwined in the tree branches that I cut. Despite the results of these two oversights I had a great time grilling and spending time outdoors which for me is always relaxing.
It is now tIme to get my mind right in preparation for another short work week which is always more hectic than a regular 5-day week!
