Default Weekend on The Beach - June 18 and 19

Good morning and happy weekend!

I was up before four this morning - stupid, isn't it! It's coolish but not raining for a change. The Girls have been out and are back in and curled up on the sofa. The thought balloons above their heads say "Maybe she'll light the woodstove." I may turn up the furnace because it's 60ļF in here and then take a nice long bath.

Today I am trying to have an easy day so will probably skip going to the hospital if I can avoid too much guilt. Lorraine has invited me to her "closing the greenhouse forever" barbecue tonight. It should be fun but also sad as I have so enjoyed working with her. I'm a bit overwhelmed by changes this month but I'm sure I'll adjust.

What's happening in your life?

Ruth, you sound like you need a breather. A 'battery recharge' day is always a good idea every now and then.
Sounds like your day is unbusy. Unlike mine today, and that is unusual. But have fun at that party/BBQ.

I have to work from 9-3. Then head to a bday party for one of Zander's daycare classmates. It starts at 3 so mama is taking him until I can get there. Then at 6 a friend and I are going to Shakespere in the Park. Her BF invited himself along. Poor fella. He's going to feel like the 3rd wheel by the nite is over.

What are the rest of you chicks up to today???

Good morning all, Things are going good. It looks like we are going to have a beautiful day even if it will be very hot. I won't be able to hit the pool this morning as I have to go to my art class. The new teacher isn't a lot of help with pen and ink but hopefully I will still learn some stuff.
Hopefully I won't wimp out and I will go in pool later today.
Have a great weekend

Ruth, you're wise to take a break. You just CAN'T get over there every day. Harry will understand, and if he doesn't...
Please give Lorraine my best wishes. I'm so sorry that the greenhouse is closing. It's such a great one.
Chilly, eh? I had to shut the windows last night and get out the duvets. It was lovely and cozy.

Wenchy, Shakespeare in the Park! Wonderful! Enjoy yourselves.
You've just reminded me that I missed an outdoor opera last night. Darn.

Eleni, when you get home from class, you'd better jump right in the pool. Sounds like you're in for a hot one. (is that a Canadian expression? "... in for a hot one..."?)

Nothing on for me today. I'm getting ready for my sister's baby shower in a few weeks. I'm going to start making the ice rings today. They're going to have different layers of colour, and I'm going to put edible flowers in them.
Yesterday I found the perfect table cloth. It's red/yellow/green... the colours in my living/dining rooms!

What's up with everyone else?

Go ahead, Wenchy! If you drink enough, maybe I'll eventually catch up (down?) to you weight wise.

Sounds like everyone has great plans. The ice rings sound interesting. I'ld love to see a picture.

I'm sitting at 152. I know I didn't eat enough yesterday. Too hot. Today is shopping day. DD and I are leaving after we get some breakfast.

Hey! My BMI just got better! I was out in the garden and am two inches taller from the clay stuck to the bottom of my garden clogs! It's dangerous out there because my earthy is very slippery when wet!

Morning, gals! Camp was great. I'm sad it's over.

I'm busy working. I think it may be a long day. Weight is cooperating nicely. I'm down to 137. I just hope it stays down.

I did not have a good evening yesterday. I started out with the best intentions of having a south beach friendly dinner. I DID have a sbd friendly dinner but then I also had a key lime margarita (bad idea since I never drink) and then since it was b-day dinner they brought me a free chocolate cake and DH guilted me into eating it. I know it was my decision to eat it but omg I shouldn't have.
We were supposed to go to the movies afterwards but after my dinner, I just couldn't. I was feeling so "yuck" after the cake that we decided to go home and see a movie another night. The good thing is that I am more motivated than ever to stay with south beach eating from now on.

Hi Chicks

Nothings exciting going on today,Tomorrow will be the big day for me & DH. The temps are in the 70's so its going to be a BBQing weekend.

Started Phase 1 again, after being at my DD's for week,got the scale to move up.So it back to portion control & exercising more. Like to get to my goal by the end of this year.Had it planned to be a round my HB,but thats no where near in site.So hopeful by the of the year,it finally will happen.

Have a nice weekend Hugs BB

Afternoon chicks!

Ruth Sounds like just the day you need. Be sure to take care of yourself!

Ellis Your ice rings sound so neat! I am creative, but not that creative.

Fl Mom DOn't beat yourself up so badly. Today is a new day- onward and downward! We are all going to make mistakes, that is just life! You can do this!!

Barb Glad you enjoyed your week of camp so much. I look forward to all of those fun things once my girls get older.

Scahtzi Red wine is legal on the beach, so you won't be cheating! Enjoy.

Me- Low key day, did a bit of shopping this morning and then dropped DD off at a friend's to swim for the afternoon. It will do her good to wear herself out. We are heading my parents' for dinner. I am enjoying the slow pace of this summer.

Later chicas!
