Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘poolside

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!

No makeup, heels or jewelry, only shorts/tanks, sandals and a bathing suit for 5 wonderful, sun-filled days. Whether it’s called a VACATION or STAYCATION, living “the Life of Riley” is a beautiful thing. Sleeping in late; eating breakfast on the back deck; poolside lounging; laughing with and loving family and friends was the perfect way to spend the long July 4th Holiday. It was also the first time that we did not go out to watch fireworks, I did however, watch Wawa Welcome America and loved Lauryn Hill’s surprise performance. I was also able to watch more of the Twilight Zone Marathon, “Time Enough At Last” with Burgess Meredith is my favorite episode! I did do a little yard work and paid the price with my annual case of poison ivy – oh how I hate the itch!!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and now it’s back to reality!

Thank Goodness It’s Tuesday – which is officially my Friday at least as far as work is concerned.  After today I will have the next 3 days off from work, no 3 hour daily commuting in rush hour traffic until Monday the 9th – oh happy day!

I plan on spending most of my staycation lounging poolside eating, drinking, and reading.  I’ll throw in a little housework, movie watching and napping to round things out – lol.

I hope you and yours have a fun-filled and safe 4th.

Alrighty now….here we go again…the next heatwave is coming.  Excessive heat warning is in effect starting tomorrow with temps reaching 97 on Saturday.  I miss the days when I could work from home because I would definitely be poolside with my laptop on Friday!  Oh well, those days are long gone and now I can wear my old favorite summer work clothes starting with this 2 piece skirt and top set.  The sandals were purchased from Burlington Coat Factory last year to wear to my son’s graduation, but they weren’t comfortable enough to be worn all day so they ended up in the back of the closet.

Ring purchased from Jewelrymax.net
