Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

I am so excited because tomorrow I will be attending my first Blogger’s Conference – The Blog Workshop.  It’s an an online virtual 3-day/3 hour conference with some great topics and speakers and I am psyched!!  I expect to gain the knowledge necessary to help me grow my blog and am looking forward to meeting other bloggers as well – will you be there?

The pool is now open and because The Blog Workshop begins in the evenings I’ll have plenty of time to work outside in preparation of the Memorial Day holiday.

Today is Peachy Polka Dots – can you spy a change?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today we officially open the pool for the season and despite the cold temps, Pool Care Specialist will be onsite to reassemble the parts and add the necessary chemicals.  Every year I think about  purchasing a better pool cover so that the water won’t be too dirty when opened in the Spring.  It’s been over 10 years and I still haven’t gotten it but thanks to the mild winter it doesn’t look too bad and by Memorial Day weekend it will be sparkling clear.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This is the last full week of April, can you believe that this time next week it will be May 3rd and Memorial Day will be on the calendar?  So many things happened this week, some of them good others not so much but I shall not dwell on the negative.  Life is so unpredictable, one day everything is “Peachy Keen” and then next your world is turned upside down.  I believe that all of us, at one point in our lives has wanted something that someone else had, whether is was as a child or an adult,  as a sibling, a parent or friend,  and then we realize that “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side”.

Has that ever happened to you?

Last evening, hubby and I attended a”Green Tie Friendraiser at The Chase Center on the Riverfront hosted by The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute.  It was wonderful event for a worthy cause and I will provide more details in a separate post.  During the evening we met some great people and had a chance to unwind and mingle after a long day at work.  I was also presented with a fantastic opportunity which I will reveal later once I get more information.

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!

During my drive home I listen to WDEL 1150AM and yesterday it was announced that they would be giving away FREE American Flags at various locations throughout the state.  This morning heading back home I passed their tent at Arner’s Restaurant on Rt 13 south and because the holiday traffic hadn’t kicked into high gear, I made a U-turn and went back.

Thank you WDEL 1150AM  for the Flag and THANK YOU VETS for bravely serving our country!

Happy Memorial Day 2012!

I have been wanting to wear these white pants for several weeks now but the weather hasn’t been warm or sunny enough.  

Today is the day, and in my head I hear the woman in the commercial saying, “don’t wear white after Labor Day – who are you? – my grandmother?”  The actress, Lisa Raye wears white everyday so here I am in my white pants before Memorial Day.
