My Life is a Work in Progress

Good Afternoon to all the faithful followers of moi: It seems anymore that by the time I drink my coffee, find out how old I am and then do my fitness coach dvd and then make breakfast and clean up, the morning is gone. Whew!!! The title of today's blog is due to the fact that I moved the furniture around in the spare room yesterday and the Lanai today. When I placed the furniture on the lanai, it was not the same time as coffee and newspaper so when we sat there, the sun was bothersome. So to rectify the situation, I changed it around, hence my life being a work in progress. lol DW, we had oatmeal for breakfast and when we do I always think of you. Going to treadmill and hopefully get my mini-me happy again. Too bad my Fitness + doesn't count towards her happiness. ha ha Also going to rent the first two Twilight series movies before I see the new movie. Thanks to Marybeth for such a good idea. Still no word on the new Kinsey baby. Okay enough chit-chat, must get busy. Love to all and hopefully you all remember what to do.

addendum to last post

Oreo was scaring me last night. She was watching this frog as seen in the previous post and I was afraid she was going to try to catch it. lol Don says cats swim but she is such a nervous wreck that she would be nuts. :)

Tuesday in Chobee

Good afternoon all: We had an eye doctor appointment to check out Mr. S's eyes after the laser treatment. Every thing is hunky dory. His eye sight is 20-20 in both eyes. I came home and did my Fitness Trainer for my normal 30 minutes and set Don up so we can exercise together. All I will say is that it is worth the price of admission to exercise with him. :) Don got an interesting merssage on his blackberry. Jason and Ari are having their baby today. No word on whether a boy or girl. Will update later. I stopped and smelled my plumeria in the front of the house today. So as usual Love to all and you know the drill.

New Oreo Updates

Good Afternoon to all of my faithful followers: It is still pretty warm down here and not much is happening. Going to start packing for the north trip soon. It will be here before we know it. Going to the 4th of July Parade as Shannon's little BABY FIRECRACKER Miss Maci will be in the parade. Miss Oreo has a new thing in her repertiore. When Don is reading the ne3spaper in the am on the lanai, she jumps up in the middle of it and waits to be scratched. Today she did it again but this time she laid down and stayed there. She is such a kitty. Okay enough for now. Must shower as we are going for a ride to check our Okeeburger Cache. The last person couldn't find it. We were there last Thursday and so was it. We will see. Okay more wonderful stuff tomorrow. Love to all and you have your orders for living.

My Days

Good Evening to all who care what I do: I started cleaning the lanai and it took me longer than I thought but I cleaned it really well. I also moved the furniture around as this time of year the sun is really bright in the am when we read the paper. Now I am finished. Okay just thought I would update all who are interested. Love to all and you know the drill

Thursday Stuff

Good Afternoon to all: It is cloudy here today and I hope it actually rains today as we could use it. Need to go to Home Depot and get more mulch for my project. We are going out to Pat's Country Cafe for an Okeeburger. Hopefully we will see Pat. I have not seen her since her surgery. We went to the Public Safety meeting last night and it was not exactly what we expected. At least we are civic minded. Okay enough for now. Love to all. And as always remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Good Morning to one and all: Not really much is happening here. We have got most of the pieces of the January trip scheduled. Just a couple unresolved issues. Well actually just one. We need to book some form of transportation from the ship terminal to the train station in LA. I'm sure it will fall into place soon. It is only 7 months away. lol Okay enough for now. Need to WII and see how old I am. lol Love to all and remember to stop and smell the flowers along the way.

Sunday in St Cloud

Good Morning all: The internet here is flaky and hopefully will get one in before it goes away. We had a nice dinner at Olive Garden with Edie, Victor, Chloe and Chloe's friend Crystal. Well to say the food was good was a stretch. I guess I will stick to soup, salad and breadsticks. lol The folks are getting ready for Disney and we are going to Sam's and then doing some caches. Okay need to shower and get ready for my day. Love to all and stay well and remember to stop and smell the flowers along your pathway of life.

Good Sunday Morning

Good Morning all: Sorry that I have missed 2 days and I have no excuses. It was a strange week last week as I lost days and gained days and just plain couldn't get it together. Holiday weeks are like that. Yesterday we went on an adventure. We went over to check out the Sebring Train Station as we booked our trip back from California (repositioning cruise) on Amtrak. Instead of messing around with trains and rental cars and driving, we decided to go all the way with the train. We go from Union Station LA to Union Station Chicago, From Chicago we go to DC (I imagine that is Union Station also) lol From DC we go to Sebring. Could not get one directly to Okee. My wonderful sister-in-law and DW have offered to pick us up in Sebring. The pieces are all beginning to fall into place. That trip is about 7 months away. After checking out the Train station we went caching. We found two and could not find one which turned out to be muggled. After that we went to Lake Placid and had lunch. We went to the little pizza place that we went to with Rand and Lori and Don and Flo. We had the best Philly Cheese Steak Pizza. This time it was really hot as the time before I froze. lmao And last but not least, Lori we found the other cub in the mural. Life is goooooooood! Okay enough for now must WII. Love to all and take time to smell the roses.

Happy Thursday

Good Morning to all: I am having the worst time this week, keeping the days straight. This morning I woke up thinking about going to the Moose for catfish. The only problem is it is Thursday, not Friday. Holiday weeks do that to me. ha ha
We went up to St. Cloud yesterday to check on Tom & Edie's house. We stopped at Sam's and then went to Olive Garden for lunch. After lunch we looked for a cache near Olive Garden and found it across the street by TGIF. lol Today we are awaiting our Auto Train Tickets. We are taking the train July 21 for our summer cache/seeing friends and family visit. More about that later. Love to all and take time to smell the roses. Need to see how old I am today!!!

Good Afternoon

Good afternoon to all: I wrote a blog yesterday but I tried to post a pic with it and it went to lala land and I was aggravated so I never got back to it. Sorry hope all had a wonderful Monday holiday. I have been using my new fitness training dvd everyday since I got it. It is really good. It is more of a workout than my fitness + dvd. The fitness + dvd is like playing games. lol I do my wii fit body test and then 30 mins of the new fitness trainer. After that I usually cook breakfast but this morning we went out to the airport for breakfast. When we got back I decided to give the camper a cleaning. Even though we are not using it for a while, it needed to be cleaned. Now I am done for the aftrnoon. Will probably putter before the soaps. When it cools off hop4fully tonight, I am going to mulch my front gardens. Okay love to all and remember to take time to smell the roses.
