Birthday and Lake Adventure Part One

Image
Hello! It's been a great vacation! Turning 36 has been fun. Yay!
My parents, in-laws, and hubby and I went to a fun restaurant and then came back for presents. My wardrobe experienced a much-needed make-over.
Also, we went to the Lake on Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday to run away from home and responsibility and relax. My folks generously offered up their summer place for a relaxing destination. It was fun. We packed our stuff, patted the grumpy kitties on their heads, filled their food bowls to the hilt, and left for a couple of days.
We had a false start--I forgot my keys halfway there so Steve and I returned back home. We finally arrive at our destination, ready to start our mini-getaway...
And I try the keys to the door. All the keys. Twice. Three times. None of them worked. I get on the cell phone and call home. During the adventure between Mom's call to Dad to Dad letting us in, we traveled to a Metropolis called Marcellus and found this darling library called Marcellus Townsh…

Storms, Harry Potter, and Looming Birthday

Hello!

What's new... hmmm...
I'm on VA-CA-TION! And so hap-py! (If I had a tail, I would be wagging it right now). I love what I do, but needed time off. Yay.

Mother Nature finally unleashed her wrath and pummeled Northern Indiana with a series of killer storms! I appreciated the fact that she waited until the parentals and I returned home from dinner at Lunker's and settled in for a relaxing evening with Steve and cats.

We saw the new Harry Potter movie. It's wonderful! We will see it again. The newest book will be arriving on my doorstep on Saturday morning. I cannot wait!

So today I slept, went to taekwondo, and slept again. The cats joined me and we had a cat siesta. Purr, snore, slumber. I started organizing the bathroom cabinet and have a cleaning list for the store.

Will go back for more taekwondo tonight since I will be off for my birthday tomorrow. Yay. Steve is giving me his wooden sword to use. I also have a bow staff.
Very cool.

More later.

Love, Lolo

Happy Thursday

Good morning,

It's going to be a beautiful day! The sizzling hot weather broke and the skies are blue and what a nice Thursday. Actually, this is my Friday because I have tomorrow off! Yippee!

I look forward to a fun and relaxing vacation next week. I just have to finish all my work stuff first so I won't be buried when I get back.

The picture I borrowed from the web is Union Station in South Bend, IN. Ten years ago on the 26th my parents hosted our wedding reception there in the train room. It was cool.


Love,
Lolo

Hi there,

Happy 4th of July week!This foto is of Chicago (courtesy of Blogger.com). I hope you are having a good week. I'm grateful to have a day off on Wednesday for the 4th. Happy Birthday, Anne!

I had two taekwondo classes this week already. I am happy to have attended twice.
Need a vacation so desperately. Look forward to a fast Thursday and Friday and then a relaxing weekend. I don't care if it rains: more time to read and rest.The kitties are doing well. Jack is on the mend.

Love, Lolo
