Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘awards

Hello Friends, I hope you all had a wonderful and restful long holiday weekend!

Today the weather didn’t cooperate so I didn’t get a chance to sit by the pool, so instead I watched “The Haves and Have Nots” marathon on OWNTV Network and worked on my Blog with next week’s posts.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope your day is going well and that it is productive and stress-free.  I overdid it with the outdoor activities and today I am paying the price, both my mind and body are tired!  Maintaining a pool is hard work and the older I get the less enjoyable it is.  Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy lounging poolside but the Spring setup takes a lot of time, just vacuuming takes over an hour.  I also have to do some comparison shopping for a new solar cover, think I’ll start with Daily Deal Superstore.

Today’s outfit is a mix of heavy and light because the temps were not expected to rise until later in the day.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-YAY!

The first day of March…another day the Lord hath made…the first weekend of the month…it’s all good in the neighborhood!

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend?  Me not so much, going to Home Depot or Lowes with hubby in search of a replacement kitchen sink faucet, (finally stopping a water leak), then doing our income taxes – Woohoo lucky lucky me!

Well at least I had fun yesterday at The Money School’s Awards Luncheon where I met some great people including Governor Markell.  The Money School provides some wonderful free programs in the state and it was nice to see them recognize people who help in this effort, I can’t wait to post the details.
