01 September 2008

It was a regular weekend for me. No extra time off for the holiday. That's retail for you, and what I'm used to. I spent the morning being lazy. It started off nice and cool, but the sun was so brilliant that the house soon heated up and I closed the doors and windows. I went out to the deck while I was on the phone and discovered how wonderful it was in the shade, and I did something I haven't done for a while. I put up the hammock, got my audio book CD's and listened to my book for hours. Yes, hours. It was delightful!


I decided to go to the pool afterwords. How could I not on the last day of the season? It was bittersweet. I stayed true to my vow not to swim. I'm still sore. If I wasn't going to swim I didn't want to get my hair wet, so I just stayed on the lounge chair and finished my book. I loved the book: Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. I didn't stay too long at the pool. Came home and cooked a summer meal of grilled Flat Iron Steak, garlic grilled potato wedges, and fresh green beans. Emily and I went out after dinner; a run for her and a walk for me. It was a nice thing to do together. It was a nice peaceful day between the two of us.

I'm tired and ready for an early night. Hope ya'll had a great weekend!

Love the hammock. Maybe I'll get one after the storms subside. Glad your day was peaceful.

We grilled this evening as well. The weather was perfect for it. I can't wait for it to get a little bit cooler though. Glad you had a good day!

What a perfect day!

I'm still loving the blue toes...

I did not finish that book, I started it and i don't know what happened, that's unusual for me, Jodi is one of my favorite authors. I will have to look it up again...

Happy Tuesday Cheryl. Hugs.

i liked that you referred to the hot, bright, blazing sun as "brilliant." LOL! good word. glad you had an enjoyable weekend, especially yesterday.

i'm doing 2 online courses, so that's what i was doing, in between resting, watching movies, eating, and cleaning up a bit.

have a great week Cheryl!

Good for you for enjoying some hammock time. I love Jodi Picoult, she is one of my favorite authors. I can't remember if I've read that one or not - I'll have to go look on my bookshelf.
