Fashion and Fun after Fifty

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.

Last month I received several nominations for Blogger Awards and having finally found the time I want to say, “THANK YOU” and pass them along to others.

Hello Friends and Happy Sizzling Saturday!

I don’t know about where you are but it is hot as Hades in Delaware, the heat index is above 100~, it was actually too hot to lounge poolside!  I could only stand it a few minutes this morning before I had to head inside for the cool comfort of the air conditioning.

I decided to run to Goodwill for their “I Love Thrifting” sale today.  Not wanting to spend a lot I only picked up two pair of shorts and a brown and white striped skirt….guess how much I paid?  As a Goodwill VIP, I was entitled to 20% off so these three items cost me a whopping $9.00!!! #winning

Are you a Goodwill VIP?  If not, it’s free to sign up and you’ll receive advance notification of specials, online coupons as well as instant savings on VIP Days.  Needless to say, the lady in front of me wasn’t too happy when she heard that as a VIP member I was getting 20% off my entire purchase!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

I’ve been MIA due to a snafu with GoDaddy for Web Hosting and the transferring of my domain – things just didn’t go well so I’m back!  Today is the end of the work week for me because tomorrow is the HOLIDAY – YAY and we are closed on Friday.

What are your plans for Independence Day?  I haven’t made any yet because of the weather, it has been raining since Sunday.  I hope the sun will make an appearance at least one day this weekend so I can  fire up the grill and lounge poolside.

Tuesday’s outfit was totally thrifted from GW Boutique.

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!

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.

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!

REPEAT

EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING!

REPEAT

Here we go again another excessive heat warning – PLEASE try to stay cool, hydrated and check on the elderly.

Summer is my favorite season and it’s on days like this that I would love to be home lounging around the pool instead of driving 3 hours a day adding exhaust fumes to an already damaged ozone layer!

Today is the 4th day of my black and white work week, and so far so good I haven’t spilled anything which is amazing since it seems like white always attracts dirt, I don’t know how Lisa Raye does it!
