Default Marvy Monday on the Beach - August 19th

Good morning! Another summer's day and I'm feeling all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed after a lovely relaxing and fun weekend at son Jim's cottage. I even managed to get my balky knee into his big boat and spent two hours out on the water. I also re-discovered beer unfortunately but a couple of days of careful eating will take care of that.

Things are gearing down a bit at the Mill - we close Labour Day weekend - and I plan to enjoy this last two weeks of August as much as I can. There will be wind-up stuff to do in September but the workload will be much lighter.

There is a Mil Board meeting this afternoon which I will have to skip - really upset about that ...NOT! I forgot that I had promised to take Donna to meet with her surgeon this morning. She is slated for carpal tunnel syndrome surgery and is scared poopless! I'm going along to listen to what she blocks out. We may go for lunch afterwards. Friends are so much more important than meetings but I will cobble together a financial report and send it along.

Right now though, It's coffee on the back deck and some loon listening. Raising my mug and wishing you a Marvy Monday!

Good morning Beachy Chicks I had planned to work today and take the rest of the week off but this morning I'm thinking I'll just spend a few hours working at my desk, them do that again later in the week, and just stay here. It would be nice not driving for a while week. I'm drilling down on the freezing/drying/canning stuff because nothing is done yet. My question for the day - peach blueberry leather or peach plum leather? I froze 5 quarts of peaches and want to dry a little for snacking.

Time to get to work!

Good morning Ruth! I missed y'all this weekend, it would've been nice for you to join me around the campfire with a cup of coffee . That is sweet of you to take Donna, with an added bonus of missing the meeting!

It was a beautiful weekend!! I can't believe the weather, it was perfect. We had newer friends come out, which we all really enjoyed....we may plan a camping weekend together.

The trip started out poorly though, since I left work 1 1/2 hrs late because of an emergency...I'm hoping I finally get out on time today! What do you think my chances are? If so, I want to take the pup on a hike (which she had a blast at our friends house).

How's everyone else?!

Just trying to maintain on the beach!

Good Monday morning.

It's quiet here again, in our empty nest. DH and I are going for a hike this morning. Not much else planned for the day.

Have a great one.

Good Morning

Thanks for getting us started, Ruth, especially after your fun filled weekend!

Twynn, nice to hear you had a great time, too!

Cyndi, yay for a new plan which involves less driving.

Karen, kudos for keeping up with the hiking! Where do you go?

Ok, getting prepped for tomorrow's trip over the hill...need to get my freeweights in before work, too.

Have a great day everyone!

Afternoon ladies!

I didn't have a chance to get online this morning because I was getting ready for an interview. Even if they called me back for a second round interview, I don't believe I'd take the job- not a safe area. It's right in the middle of downtown, and I'd have to walk a block or two to get to/from my car. When I got back to the parking garage this afternoon, there was a man on the level I parked on, talking to himself. Or me. Or a hallucination. Either way.

Waiting to hear back about my second-round interview time for an interview from last week. I have a good feeling about this one!

Bit bloated today, but after my snack last night of dill pickles and peanuts, totally not surprised!

Pearlrose- I hope the prednisone takes care of your issue!
Debbie- Enjoy your trip.
Cyndi- both!

So which did you decide on, Cyndi?l Either one sounds delish to me! It sure was great to meet you in real life last week, I only wish we had had more time, and I'm really sorry, everyone, that we totally forgot to take pictures!

My week in the Adirondacks was pure bliss! Our cottage had all the modern amenities and the lake was right out our door. We did go to Lake Placid to sightseeing one day, and spent a day in Vermont, but mostly we enjoyed long, lazy days swimming, boating and laying out on the dock at our cottage a midst spectacular scenery.

Today was back to work, and I had to be there early to take Audrey to an appointment, but they all left for a few days at the shore afterwards, so I should have a pretty quiet & easy week at the house with just me and the dogs.

Now I really need to buckle down and get serious about weight. My eating lately has been just deplorable, I'm embarrassed to say. But I think I'm finally in the right frame of mind and motivated again, and today was totally OP.
Live simply
Laugh often
Wine alot
