View Full Version : Yippeee! It's Weekend Chat Time!

Good morning. We're on the front porch for coffee this morning because there is a slight drizzle. I'm crossing my fingers that it stops soon.

First event today is a pancake breakfast and that's followed by judging of the flower show. The craft tent opens at ten and there is some absolutely gorgeous stuff there - no crocheted slippers at this one. It's ceramics, jewelery, leather, weaving and other yummy stuff! I'm hoping they don't take Mastercard. Official opening of the new exhibits at the Mill is noonish and then it'll be dignitary walk-about for other things like planting a perennial at the new garden. I sure hope the rain disappears before then. The village will be packed - we even have cops on duty for parking control. Dinner theatre is sold out tonight:carrot:

So, needless to say, I won't be around here today. Behave! :lol:

Wow! Busy day Ruth. We're going to Disney for the parade and fireworks tonight. The electrical parade is returning to Disney World and they're having some kind of passholder even tonight. As soon as I finish my tea, I'm heading out for a morning walk. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Good Morning Ruth and Frances:sunny:

Both of you have such fun events planned!!! Enjoy!

Ruth, wish I could join you on the porch this morning....then Frances would come by and we'd go walking while it was still cool!....Alas, Bing and I are headed out, then I'll start my cleaning....

Good morning :coffee2: Just a quickie because it's seriously thundering and lightening out there. I'm off to Boston to spend the day with DD. It would be more fun with good weather but I'm sure we will find something to do :)

Ruth - Sounds like a fun and busy weekend.

Frances - Enjoy your weekend

Debbie - Happy walking and successful cleaning to you :) Any you time planned for post cleaning?

Have a good day friends

Hi, Cyndi! Wish I could join you in Boston-it's too bad that the weather isn't being cooperative. I think I see a trend...I'd much rather be doing anything other than my chores but that's what I get for having so much fun this last week. I'm thinking I have to go over the hill Monday so everything needs to get done. I did go out and pull the plastic off the tomatoes. They've enjoyed their hothouse and I have ripe Sweet 100's...but it's time.

06-05-2010, 08:30 AM
Good morning all.

Ruth - Enjoy the day.. Hopefully it will be dry.

fcm - Sounds fun... both the walk and the Disney stuff.

Debbie - Pool? Bike? Yoga? Or is cleaning the workout today?

Cyndi - How about shopping!?

I need to go wake up DS. He is taking the SAT subject tests today. Unfortunately his friend bought him a concert ticket for last night so I suspect DS will not do so well this morning. Teens! Sigh. We have a neighborhood cookout tonight. (It is a campout too but I soooo don't do that.) I just made a new bean salad recipe hoping I will eat that and not all the non-healthy stuff. I am getting my cholesterol checked on Monday so that should help with the willpower. Oh - and maybe a bike ride. Going to be in the 90s here!

Have a great weekend all.

Hi Karen, I had a huge chuckle thinking about a neighborhood campout-here it would be scary! The cookout does sound fun and I know you'll do well-you've planned ahead. I am going to take the pups down to the river for a walk, but it's so hot here, too. My afternoon hike with GFs was cut short due to heat yesterday, and if I don't get to the pool early it's just too busy. Now, you have me thinking and I might get my basket attached to the new bike and ride up to the greenhouse-they're having a sale on petunias. OK, now I'm motivated to get this housework done! Thanks!

:sunny: I'm enjoying my coffee on our balcony overlooking the ocean. Everyone is welcome to join us. There's room for a few more chairs. :D:

Hi all! We have a busy day today too, but the rain may put the kiabosh on our afternoon plans. Doing just 15 minutes of yoga stretches and lying on the shakti mat for 5 minutes makes me feel SO good in the morning!

Yesterday was a weird eating day - I was on the run much of the day and strayed off Phase 1 in the evening (although did still remain technically OP as in on the South Beach Diet). Today will be better...hope everyone has a great day. Cottage, I am jealous!

Good morning everyone. I am awakened by my kids this moring because the router was unplugged and no internet. Of course that also means they weren't watching the two year old as he trashed the house. Guess I shouldn't have tried to sleep in. But in a way it is actually funny. I'll be laughing about it tomorrow. ok, time to clean up the flour that's everywhere and get pencil off the walls. :sp:

I hope everyone's weekend is going great.

Oh, I am so there! :carrot:

Sounds like everyone has nice plans, but weather not cooperating???

We had planned on heading to New Orleans for the Oyster Festival in the Quarter, but looks like another stormy day here. Playing it by ear. May head down anyway and hit Whole Foods if we can't do the fest. Maybe grab a bite somewhere on Magazine Street so we don't have to run far in the rain.

Good morning - what fun to read about everyone's weekend plans! :)

My weekend excitement is behind me now, I took my mom to my niece's high school graduation last night. It was so, so, so hot in the auditorium but it was a very nice ceremony and they moved things along very quickly so other than the heat it was a really pleasant event. We went over to the house for a celebration dinner and cake afterwards. It was nice and cool in the house and we had a great time but I don't think I'll mention the food... ;)

I'm hoping to get some kayaking in this morning, and a walk at some point today. In between the fun I've got lots of errands and yard work to do. Hopefully my busy, active day will compensate for the goodies I ate last night. :crossed:

hey chickies!
I would loooove some coffee, but from NB Canada, that might be quite the commute. I'm up for it though- I heart facebook avatar is the travelocity roaming gnome :) LOL

fcmonroe- Disney sounds great! We took the kiddies there in November and we all had a blast. Youre lucky to be so close! Even though I work for an airline, we had to buy confirmed tix as our airline does very little florida flights and I didn't want the headache with an infant. Plus, dh doesn't want to (is afraid) to fly us airlines and I won't do charters. So, translation? $600+ for each of us. Ugh.

Ds7 makes a lot of lists, and last night he actually made a packing list for the next time we go to Disney. lol that's so far off. I'm considering going to DL next time, then we can do a side trip to San Diego, which would be fun. Flt's a little longer though.

Us for the weekend? Don't know- but today I trek back to the hospital. i'm hoping it'll be the last visit for awhile.
Have a good weekend girls!!!

06-05-2010, 01:23 PM
Disney FTW!! I am in love with that place, although there's no way I could afford to go any time soon. I need to get my car fixed and don't know if ends will meet until the next paycheck, let alone fixing the car. Hopefully that tie rod problem won't keep getting worse while we scrape something together. But it all works out one way or the other. :)

Rained last night and more in store for tonight. Went garage sale-shopping at 7am, then down to Farmers' Market. Met my sister-in-law downtown after a 5k race she was in and had breakfast at the market. Daughter from Minneapolis is home for the weekend. We found a darling armoire for her for $15 at a sale this morning. Preparing for DS graduation open house tomorrow so lots of cleaning and food prep today, then hopefully relax and enjoy the day tomorrow. Supposed to be in the 70's and lovely tomorrow. My weight was good today, so I'm a happy girl! :D

06-05-2010, 09:20 PM
:wave: I'm home and ready to fall over :) Our day was perfect between morning storms and the evening forecast of more. It was muggy but sunny and gorgeous. My feet logged 10 miles. Boston is great for walking. DD bought me a T pass we never even used :)

Hope the rain was more threat than reality for everyone!

06-05-2010, 10:57 PM
We had a really nice day today, too. Rain-free, but it sure was hot and muggy! After the Celtic Fest we came back to the hotel and spent the remainder of the afternoon cooling off in the pool. We even decided to have dinner at the hotel restaurant, which was one of the best dinners I've ever enjoyed in all my years of coming to Cape May.

Carley is sound asleep in bed, and Monica wants me to join her on the balcony for a Bailey's and a few rounds of Scopa.

Have a good night, and I'll see you all in the morning!

Long, hard but successful day yesterday and just today to get through. There was a big storm during the play that luckily missed us but it's raining pretty hard right now. Ecumenical Church service this morning and Antiques Roadshow this afternoon - all in the tent so it should be OK. We're hoping it clears in time for the chicken BBQ later. What a weekend!

You guys please take today as a Day of Rest on my behalf, OK? :rofl:

Wow, Ruth! Unfortunately, there's no rest here. I'm finally down to last day status and have to get everything I've put off till tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow...done today. Oh, well :shrug:

Looks like a nice day, though. So it's clean, dog walk, clean, church, get all the gardening done, clean .

Hope everyone has a great day!

06-06-2010, 08:42 AM
Good morning all. So much going on with you all yesterday! I have nothing on tap for today. Boring. Have a wonderful Sunday:)

06-06-2010, 08:46 AM
Good morning :coffee2: I'm still totally exhausted from yesterday's outing so it will be a low key day here. Looks like rain all day so I have a perfect excuse to nap ;)

06-06-2010, 10:17 AM

06-06-2010, 04:17 PM
Day of rest? What's rest?? I"ve been to mass. Does that count? :P

You could log it as exercise!:lol:

6pm here and I'm sitting down to watch NBA finals...whatever still needs to be done can wait. It was a beautiful, super hot day here. I got all the timers set so I can make sure they're all working before I leave. I may wash the kitchen floor at half time...I'll certainly log THAT as exercise! See ya'll tomorrow!
