Hello my friends, I pray a good day was had by all.....I had a quiet day, calm and not nearly as busy as yesterday.....I loved it! Really hot today, especially on my deck, 37.5 but I think it was only 24 at the airport. (Marcy that's Celsius not Fahrenheit)
I slept in this morning until almost 9:30 and I still didn't feel like getting up. I went downstairs made my coffee and got my daily newspaper from my mailbox then headed back to my bed. As I read the news, drank my coffee I watched the French Open Tennis quarter finals on TV and as I was laying here enjoying the moment I had to smile to myself, it kept going through my mind, life doesn't get any better than this.
I finally forced myself up and hit the shower at 11, as I wanted to make it to Curves before noon. Not that I worry what anyone might think about what time I arrive, no that doesn't bother me a bit but I wanted to phone my sister in Scotland and knew she would be home if I called her around 2 pm my time as it would be 9 pm her time. Last night I was lonesome to hear her voice but didn't want to call in the middle of the night. So call her I did and it was wonderful to hear her voice. She is so funny and always makes me laugh. She is doing well and like me is working to take off some weight. She has already lost 6 pounds where I have only lost 1 1/2 pounds but then I have only been trying since Sunday. I also spoke to her husband for a minute and he is doing really well. He keeps himself in good shape as he walks and cycles almost everyday.
I worked out at Curves today for 45 minutes. I have met so many ladies since I started and we chat as we use the machines so the time just flies by. I have always disliked exercising but I am really enjoying Curves, I cannot believe how much energy I have when I am finished. I wish I had discovered this a few years ago. Curves is very clean, well managed and the girls are terrific.
As I said earlier I called my sister when I got home then had my lunch, well I should say brunch as I didn't eat breakfast this morning like I always do. Then I headed outside to play with my flowers. I am so enjoying playing in the dirt. After tending to them, I swept my deck and hosed it down. I then wiped the dust off the furniture and as I looked around I felt so thankful to have such a lovely place to sit, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. It was a good feeling.
I only came inside when the phone rang, it was a friend of mine who wanted to know if I would like to go for dinner and a movie. Since I had no plans anyway I gladly agreed as it was nice not to have to cook supper.
Anyway it was a lovely dinner, we went to East Side Mario's in St. Albert and I had salad, pasta and my glass of white wine. I know, I know that isn't going to help me loose weight....ummmm I wonder how many calories in 2 glasses of wine in a week. Doesn't matter, it was worth it.
We saw Star Trek at the movies, not I am not a big trekki fan but it wasn't too bad. It was hot today so it was nice sitting in an air conditioned theatre.
I got back home around 10:30 and had 3 phone calls to return. I don't usually call anyone after 9 pm at night but these people ask that I call when I got home so I did. It was all good news and now I have plans for another busy time next week. That's what I like about summer, I get to see and visit with friends I haven't seen in months. Sooooo love the summer.
It was a lovely day, very relaxing and filled with love, laughter and good friends. Life is good!
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments, tomorrow is going to be another beautiful day, for all of us to enjoy, Good Night my friends and God Bless.......:-) Hugs
