Hi Carol,

I believe there is only one resort up there. There are many levels of ownership though. I am at Casa at Woodstone. "My" week is the second week in Sept but I banked my week last year and needed to use it or lose it, so I traded my banked week for my own resort! And because I needed to use it by August 31st, I am going early. Previously, I've used it to go to New Bern and Palm Coast. Both were great trips. I want to get up to the Gettysburg area to do that in depth and also go down to Hilton Head/Savannah area. I'd settle for Edisto Island cause we'd be closer to Charleston that way. I love Charleston. Best walking city in the US.

Attitude is everything, pick a good one!

"It works if you work it, and it won't if you don't."

ONCE YOU GET THERE....DON'T GET COCKY,
IT'S EASY TO FALL RIGHT BACK DOWN.

Certainly I have a 6-pack. You just can't see it through my soft sided cooler!

Hi MaryEllen,
Which resort do you go to in Massanutten, or is there just one there? We, also, love to go there and used to go every year in October when the leaves were colored and beautiful.
Our friends own there and of course, we can always exchange to there. But since we started going to FL in Oct., we no longer join them in VA.
I love the area and the little shops where I could buy Amish foods not available elsewhere and we made an annual visit to that huge bookstore in a barn. I think Harrisonburg would be a great place for retirement.
Hmmm, maybe we could go there in September!
Have Fun!!!

I think these daily chats are a really nice idea, even though this is my first reply!

I have a Morrisville mailing address near Brier Creek and RDU, but live just inside Durham County and work in Durham.

I am glad you also like Joel. Charles Stanley is also very good but I never seem to catch him. Will try next week.
We belong to the Methodist Church in Frostproof and have just not gotten into a church up here. And then we are often at the Lake on week-ends. In FL we never miss church and are very active in it.
Had to take my computer to Staples today as it progressively got worse. Guess I got a virus going to a website that popped up and I thought was legal. Came out to Great Room, fired up old computer that DH plays his solitaire on, and it is 10 times faster than the 2 year old computer.
Talk later, Carol

Went to 10am Mass and then breakfast afterwards with friends. It was actually chilly in the restaurant! Then I went to BJ's a got gas and dashed in to pick up some contact lens solution that I had a coupon for. I ended up buying two bamboo pillows. I'd see them advertised and could not imagine sleeping on bamboo! The are really nice. It's like memory foam but you can squish them like feather pillows. I am hoping that they will finally be the answer to my constant search for the perfect pillow. I have many garbage size in the attic filled with pillows that just didn't measure up. I hope these will be the answer.

Friends coming for lunch tomorrow. Two just got back from a driving adventure in England and Scotland, so we want ot hear all about it. Then three of us will be going up to my timeshare in Massanutten VA in a few weeks and we need to figure out what we want to see. We know we want to do the Presidential trio of Monticello, Montpelier and Mt. Vernon and swing up to the Greenbrier in WV to look at the bunker. In question is a quick trip to Gettysburg. I'm not sure how much we'll get to see if we are based in Massanutten. I think it's about a 2-2.5 hour one way drive. We'll see what we come up with.

Attitude is everything, pick a good one!

Hi Carol, I just love Joel Osteen. Yes, we do watch him and Hayes Barton. My mother also like Charles Stanley. We can't get out like we use to so I am very thankful these shows are on TV live.

I hope your knee gets to feeling better. Have a great day. Looking forward to some brighter days coming up. I feel a little antsy since not getting out running since Thursday.

Happy Sunday! I'm actually too cool this morning and tired of the gloom, but have to remember it could be worse.
My computer is acting up since some unwanted ads have taken over and the only web site I can get to easily is this one. Guess it goes to the shop tomorrow. DIL and grandkids have all switched to Mac's so they can't help me like they used to. I really don't want to learn a new system, so stick with the old. If I didn't want/need SP, I'd forget the whole computer bit. But I do like to look up other things, too.
I've got to find exercise today that doesn't aggravate my knee. Need it!
Hope everyone is having a good day!
PS Sharon: DH and I always watch Joel Oesteen. Do you ever see him on Sunday morning?

Good morning Team! Happy Sunday!

I am moving a little slow this morning. I really need my coffee. emoticon

Yesterday I did a lot of indoor activities since we had rain most of day. I even did some cooking, one recipe from the Spark People. My favorite is the Spinach Stuffed Pork Loin. I am in Hog Heaven, it was so good. I also made my Low Carb Cheese Cake, Tuna Fish Salad and Deviled Eggs.

I take my measurements today after completing my 12 week Challenge. I guess my meal was so good last night I gained a pound. That's OK, still kept a few off.. This morning we will watch our church shows and basically have as a rest day. I usually use my Sunday's to catch up on anything I missed during the week and we usually go to the Lake for our walk later, but I think it will be raining today.

I hope you all have a great day!

Sharon emoticon
