Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

There definitely should be an extra day between Saturday and Sunday because trying to squeeze in chores and relaxation into two can be exhausting!  I trust you all had an enjoyable weekend and hopefully are half way through a stress free Monday.

Today’s outfit is a simple two piece skirt and sleeveless tank that I must have bought about 10 years ago and thanks to the elastic waistband, I will probably have it another 10 years!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

What are your plans for the weekend?  As with most of the MidAtlantic area we have had rain and overcast skies all week and it’s supposed to be the same tomorrow and Sunday so there will be no pool lounging.  I will however, be lounging around the house, doing a few chores and working on my blog, and maybe take a few naps in between.

Today’s casual Friday outfit is “faux lace” floral jeans from Rugged Wearhouse and a simple cinched waist Faded Glory top from Walmart.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Here we go again…another summer weekend, will it be hot and dry or cool and rainy?  Last Saturday was a perfect day and I had plans of lounging poolside all afternoon, but sometimes pool maintenance can change the best laid plans.  I often dream of having a “Pool Boy”, someone to keep the chemicals balanced, remove the debris and skim the leaves…someone too…HOLD ON…wait a minute!pool boy

 Hubby wouldn’t like that very much and I would probably end up getting someone like Nick Cannon in “Love Don’t Cost A Thing!”pool boy2

We’ve had our pool for about 18 years and there is always maintenance involved some more intense than others like the replacement of tiles.  These fell off a few years ago and it took me too many hours on Saturday to replace them.

I stopped at Leslie’s Pool Supplies and purchased Patch It, it wasn’t hard to make the putty but like that scene from The Cosby Show, I’d seal one tile and another would fall off – it was frustrating to say the least.

After several hours of this I gave up but only after using the entire bucket!

Of course then I had to vacuum out the residue and skim the leaves!

After all that, I was finally able to sit back and relax for a whole 2 hours!!

So if you happen to be in the neighborhood – stop by & bring a cold one…AND a Pool Boy!

Happy 1st Day of Summer – the longest day of the year!

More sunshine means more fun time, so how are you going to celebrate ?  

Will you be cooking on the grill; sitting on the patio/deck listening to music; going to the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival; outdoor dining; heading down to FireFly, playing with the kids/grands or just relaxing with a book and a beverage?  How about an ice cream cone from Mister Softee or a $2 Ice/$3 Gelati from Rita’s?

No matter what you do, just do it and have fun!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

We’re having a heatwave…a tropical heatwave and the solar cover arrived just in time to capture the rays.  By Sunday the pool should be warm enough to swim in, who will be swimming, now that’s another story.  My men don’t have much of an interest anymore so most of the summer it’s just me, my magazines and music!
