My best friend came over yesterday and I taught her how to make and bake sugar cookies. Today I taught her how to decorate them. Since she needed them earlier then later it is a very simple decorate. It’s not my style, but she was thrilled.

Kellie, I'm with you - woke up dizzy. Occasionally happens after flying, and I suspect a fast food meal the other night didn't help. Two of my brothers and I all have vertigo problems, we have weird inner ears that we inherited from our dad. So another take-it-easy kind of day.

But it's sunny and warm, and I'll probably spend some time outside. (The dizziness is getting better with lots of liquids.)

I'm trying to pretend I'm not getting older and that travel just isn't as easy as it was once upon a time!!!

Bess, your studio is sounding wonderful!

And Maree, time on the river (once it calms down) sounds heavenly!

Nell, I had cold sores only when I lived in Minnesota one year - they really are no fun!!! Back then, they didn't have special meds or cream, I just kept using Bacitracyn til they cleared up. (And oddly, they were on my chin and not on my lips!)

Hey all! woke up feeling cruddy. I went back and forth and finally grumpily decided to skip today's 5K and go back to bed.

I can't decide yet if it's bad sinus issues or the beginning's of a cold. Too much coming up I don't want to miss. GRRRR.

Laying low today! Time to hold my head over boiling water!

Good morning all, what a nice positive way to start our day with all the wonderful things happening in our lives.
IT MUST BE SPRING!

Maree, how perfect that everything is coming together just before your company arrives. What a day you have ahead of you though. I can see you collapsing around 8 tonight. How grateful we are when our bodies can cooperate like that. I use to be the same and hopefully it will come back..

Bess, enjoy your day tomorrow. It sounds perfect to be celebrating your sons birthday along with Mother’s Day. How appropriate.

Toni, I know you are enjoying having this time with your son. How cool to be able to jet ski together. Cooking for Mom....perfect gift!

Nell, ugg to the Cold sore. They sure do make you feel miserable

Phebess, sounds like you had way too much fun on your trip so now it is time to catch up and relax for a few days.

Sunny where I do my aquasize they have a warmer pool that also has a floor that rises so those who have mobility issues can just walk straight into the pool then the floor is dropped. I think that is pretty amazing. We also have deep water aquasize but it doesn’t start until 10 which is too late for me. I am a morning person

Econolady I hope you had a better sleep last night.

Today I am doing some more work outside then we are going to our sons for Mother’s Day. I love it when he cooks for me and he is a great cook.

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning everyone.

My cold sore is driving me crazy. I feel like I have to stay indoors and hide until it fades away. It's only the, maybe, 4th time I've ever had one, so I always forget how awful they look.

Maree, how wonderful that your deliveries will arrive on time and in their entirety. Don't you love it when a vision comes together?

It's not getting out of the 60s here today, I can't even imagine being on water. April was hot and wet, May seems to be cool and wet.

DH will be headed out to his old guy breakfast this morning, that will give me time to vacuum the house. The cleaners are coming on Tuesday, it can't wait that long.

Toni - that's VERY cool. And aren't you glad you got out on the water yesterday? It's looking to be rainy all weekend
Maree - I can just feel the excitement generated by your beautiful new livingroom. woo woo - can't wait to see a photo
Phebess - yup. I know that kind of day and like Maree - i think it's the aftermath of all that fun and travel
Poindextra - what does the weekend hold for you?
Sunny - there are a lot of things I won't try anymore. I'd LOVE to do a trampoline class but ... not with my back. It's very happy if I don't jump
Donna - I'm loving this spring. yesterday was one of those halcyon days that just made me want to sing
Jamirblaze - ah-choo. and yes. something with lots of pollen always seems to be in bloom these days
Kellie - yay for a healthy weekend
Econlady - hope you're feeling better
Nell - yay for a little pampering.

As I said - yesterday was just a singing kind of day. Perfect temperatures, blue skies, fluttering green leaves - I did some work in my "studio", which is the downstairs bathroom!!! and I am very pleased with it. And I got some time in town with fun chores. Haven't been getting in formal exercise but I have been active. Tomorrow is DS's birthday as well as Mother's Day - this happens every so often and we both celebrate then. We are going to their house and if it's not too rainy the guys will canoe down the Pamunkey River. The gals will dote on Da Pwincess. Scale is still whispering sweet things to me.

Believe it
Do it
Become it

Good Saturday morning! I do love them too, Maree.

So exciting your house decorating plans are coming together on time for your guests, Maree. I hope they bring their oooh and ahhh’s with them! Not that you will need it. It must be so satisfying to see all the pieces of your plan come together.

Jamir, I’m sneezing right along with you. It has helped to take a shower when I come inside, but I always wake up with my nose running.

Phebess, I bet you were ready for a good sleep. Hope you got one.

Bess, yes, when that studio is done it will be done and filled with your projects and space for more!

Nell and Econ, hope you are both feeling better this Saturday morning.

Sunny, I sure agree with you about picking class you feel comfortable in. It’s a challenge to be consistent sometimes and boy it seems like doing it “my way” is the best motivator.

Donna, glad you are seeing the sun. Makes me all ‘sparky’ too. With the approach of summer I already notice I want to move more.

Kellie, happy for you that you got that run in.

Yesterday I finished some plantings while our ‘clean up’ crew came in and weeded. We also planted my mother’s day Mandevilla. It climbs a wall by the garage and looks so pretty all summer. And everything looks ready for summer. We need to wash down the outdoor furniture soon though. Looking forward to posting from a chair outside.

I also jet skied with my son again. He loves it and since the season is not really started once again we had the lake to ourselves. He’s heading into the city to meet up with friends today, but coming home on Mother’s Day to cook for me. How cool is THAT!

Have a good weekend, everyone. Toni

Good morning, friends! Don't you just LOVE Saturday?!! In the spring?!! Sprinkle in some sunshine and, oh my!!!

I'm so excited to report that my new recliner chair and the mirror over the fireplace have arrived so ALL will be delivered this Thursday!! Yaaaaaay! And the storm door came in, so both the new fiberglass door and storm door will be installed Friday morning! Yaaaaaay! It's coming together, just in time for guests' arrival Friday evening! Habitat for Humanity Resale Store will pick up old furniture (and any other donations) Wed afternoon. Cleaning lady Thursday.

A full day today for me and DH today: paint living room windows, ceilng paint touch ups, power wash siding, clean garages, landscaping finishes. After rain passes through this afternoon, I'll put 2nd coat of paint on small garage door and light poles. Sorry, I feel like I'm making this a to do list! LOL!

I'm grateful to have the energy to do all of these chores--my workout of the day! And to be sharing two full days with DH!

Phebess, I bet your body was running high on adrenaline as you took in all the sights, sounds and stimulation of family and friends and new adventures over the last couple of weeks and finally said: time to rest and relax. I have the feeling DH and I will be ready for a relaxing Memorial Day weekend after our guests leave. Maybe, just maybe, the Mississippi River flooding will subside enough to head to the houseboat. Crossing fingers! Toni, I envy your water time!

Gotta hit the ground running!

Hope all have a great day!!
