Hers Comes Summer!


It's Memorial Day Weekend = the official start of summer here in the U.S. (Will someone please tell the weatherman that?)


In a few hours my oldest daughter & I will be heading to the lake to stock up the cupboards and finish what didn't get done when hubby & I were there last month. Can't wait! As always...I love that first weekend down there! The whole summer stretches before us and I feel like a kid again! The rest of the crew will trickle in the next few days.


I'm bringing the good running shoes as I anticipate doing two Cto5k sessions there. (not to mention tons of lake walks.) So as I grabbed the running schedule from the side of the fridge to stuff in my suitcase I took a peek at Mondays' session. WTF?? (as in what the fudge *sorry*) I'm supposed to go from :


90 seconds jog/90 seconds walk/3 min. jog/3 min. walk & repeat to


3 min. jog/90 sec. walk/5 min. jog/2.5 min. walk/3 min. jog/90 sec. walk/5min. jog???


Nothing like kicking it up several notches all of a sudden! I'm scared! Can I do this? 5 minutes is a long time! Okay - I AM GOING TO DO IT! So many others before me have so why not. I may surprise myself too. And I'll have my daughter (the runner) at my side to motivate me (or call 911 if I drop over from exhaustion...) I'm still nervous though.


So friends....I will be absent from blogland until Monday. No computer at the lake - not even any television! (We have a TV there but it only shows DVD's - we have no reception down there.) Though I will miss catching up on all of you, I'm eager to spend some lazy days on the boat (pretending to fish), cozy circles around the campfire, and sprawling out on the dock with a good book. And of course putting up with our dear neighbor Mr. ImAnAss. Perhaps he'll fall off his dock this year never to be seen again. Okay, sorry. I truly am working on forgiveness here. It's just hard......



Have a great weekend everyone!

I KNOW you can do it! Have a great time. The lake sounds absolutely heavenly, I'm so envious! My life has kicked into overdrive lately and it scares me a little.

Re: your comment on my blog about Scrabble scores - we should keep them, but haven't. We just got the Onyx (read - expensive!) edition at Barnes & Noble and it has a little book of scorecards, so these will be easier to keep. So sorry to hear about your first hubby. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

All I can say is, if that's your lake house, I want in. It looks so inviting.

Have a great weekend and good luck on the C25K workouts!

Clearly our invitation got lost in the mail and I would have brought the sunshine and warm weather with me too...oh well, I'll have to send it via FedEx and hope it gets there in time for you to have a FABULOUS weather! NO matter, I hope you have a lovely time my friend.

Enjoy the family time, the fresh air and your runs

Have a wonderful time! I will miss your posts, but I guess I can manage without you for a few days. (LOL at Diana's comment! Clearly, my invitation was lost in the mail, too. Hehehe...)

The cottage looks great! I would love to rent one once and go for walks in the woods.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend and look forward to hearing about it!
