Yes summer is on it's way out here in UK. Though sometimes there is a short Indian summer as it's called in .autumn. I love. Autumn.
Vacations are not ideal for us with my husband s Alzheimer's. We did have a few days in a rental apartment at the coast in May, I loved it but the was unsettled and wanted to be home so we left early , it looks like home is best now , Irene

Certainly is Autumnal but here in Gorleston but we have a weird weather system being by the sea. September usually brings a late spurt of Summer (so I'm told. We moved here last October) so I'm hopeful especially as we have friends coming to visit!

We are on permanent vacation- we live by the sea! emoticon

I have yet to go on vacation. I will go to Bar Harbor Maine near the end of August. We plan on going to National Convention (I belong to an organization) in September right after going to Cape May, New Jersey. We will have the convention in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I have never been to the New England states nor to New Jersey nor Delaware. I want to go to and sit foot on the ground of every 50 states in the USA. I have already been to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico (when it might becomes a state). I will be gone for 3 weeks total. Stopping at my son's house on the way home from Louisville KY, where Glenda lives.

I do believe that summer is almost over, and we really haven't had it yet - it's been very cool!

I made a day trip to the Welland Canal to meet up with a group of friends I originally met in a team here at Sparkpeople. It was wonderful! emoticon

It would be a toss up between a mountain view with nice weather and gentle breeze or a beach with a good breeze, some sun, not too hot and watching the waves gently roll in. Either one would also have a good cup of coffee in my hand.

Oh my, tough question - I love ice cream, frozen yogurt and ice cream bars and other treats, like drumsticks.
I especially love Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia, and, locally, I like Chapman's Mocha Almond Fudge. When I lived in WI my favourite was Gilles' Frozen Custard - it was wonderful!!

They come to me sporadically throughout the day; problem is, I don't do anything with them. I need to carry a small tape recorder with me to record my thoughts!

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I am not a creative idea type of person. But I am mechanically inclined. If I see something, I try to do it. I logically think it out and sometimes it works and sometimes not. I try to stay active which boosts my energy, but some days I ache too much and just rest.

I have also noticed a general increase in the cost of groceries. I spent more this past month than I did the month before, and I get pretty much the same things. emoticon

I do not eat meat, but HD does. I try to buy only healthy local from farmers and ranchers I know. Eggs are anot her danger. Federal law requires they be washed in a Christian email bath before selling. So even if you buy organic at the grocery this is what you get. Find eggs at the farmers market they will be labeled for pet food only. These eggs have not been bathed in chlorine, and because of this they will keep un- refrigeratored. Most if not all European countries do not store their eggs in the refrigerator.

I believe most everything has gone up, my over all bill is a third higher than before. But the cleaning products are the worst I was buying a can of Lysol, what I was paying under $3.00 for and it was marked $8.99, needless to say I left it on the shelf. Dealing directly with the farmers will save the middleman cost. Find someone to share a 1/4 beef with or hog. Try for grass fed on the beef the hogs have different dietary needs, but no antibiotics or hormones if at all possible. Our Slow Food Group buys a whole cow a couple of times a year by shares.

Let's Make a Deal. I went to the auditions in Forsythe, IL several years ago. There were thousands of people lined up in the mall. It was fun and interesting.

Hugs from J and thank you for your support.

MODERN FAMILY!!! My favorite :-)

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

The only time we fail is if we refuse to try.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I will live it as the gift from God that it is.

Ask yourself, "Am I really hungry or am I just responding to something else that is happening?"
