Saturday, July 16, 2011

My daughter (PINKNFITCARLA) and my granddaughter came this weekend for Meghan's 16th Birthday. Actually next weekend is her BD, but she has other plans, so they came now. I made her a special Sweet 16 birthday cake. Here are some of the photos we took:

What a Hot Day

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

It is so humid and so hot. I usually walk to Curves in the morning, but it was so humid this morning that I decided to drive. I sure was glad I did. I was exhausted when I got done. Worked in the garden for a while and fertilized all veggies and flowers. I was dripping wet when done. I washed 2 loads of clothes and put them on the clothesline. It was so humid, I wasn't sure they would get dry. BUT, they did. I love the fresh smell of clothes on the line. When I take sheets out of the linen closet, I can still smell the freshness. If I happen to put sheets in the dryer for some "unknown" reason, I can also tell when I take out of the linen closet that they were in the dryer. Had several errands to do and got them all done.

Remember to eat healthy, track your intake, exercise and BE HAPPY.

    It was horribly hot here yesterday as well. Our temp got up to 100 and the heat index was 111. I am ready for it to cool down a little bit. Glad you decided to take the car rather than walk. You really have to be careful in the heat. Hope you have a great day!

Hugs,

Lainie

    We had a day off from the humidity. I love my clothes hung outside. Since we've been at this house, I've only put my sheets out once because I have one of those umbrella clotheslines and they don't fit. I usually hang the pillow cases out though. I especially love the smells when it's a cool crisp day.

Happy 4th Sparkers

Monday, July 04, 2011

Happy 4th of July to all of you Sparkers.

Remember the military for fighting for our freedom today and every day. Walk up and shake the hand and say thank you to the next 5 military personnel you see. Come back here to let me know you were able to do this.

Enjoy your day!!

    Love the idea! As the daughter of a Vietnam Vet let me say, it means a lot to the veterans to know they are loved and supported.

Yesterday was the 7th year anniversary since my husband returned from the Middle East. Yes, we celebrated it as an anniversary -- I know I am very lucky because so many people didn't get to wait at the airport and see their loved one walking toward them!
