So Long Summer

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

Can you believe that today is the last day of Summer 2013 ~ What are you doing to usher in Autumn?

My plans include working outdoors, clearing the pool deck and getting it ready to be closed, trimming the hedges and clearing out my little tomato garden.  I’m sad to see Summer end but am happy that we can turn off the air conditioner, open all the windows and enjoy the cooler days and nights of Autumn.

I’ll miss the summer breeze but this classic by The Isley Brothers will always make me feel fine.



Have a fantastical weekend – Smooches!



Memorial Day 2012

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!
