Sunday Salon - Weekly recap - June 23rd


This week really flew by, and after being home sick all of the previous week, I'm pleased to say I made it through a full week of work and actually felt pretty good.  I haven't had any exercise in 2 weeks as I did not want to hinder my recovery, but then, I don't need much of an excuse to avoid exercise...LOL  despite that, I am still down 26lbs in 5.5 months so I'm thrilled.

My husband is in Philadelphia this weekend, visiting a friend. He's going to a Phillies game today and having dinner with his son whose birthday is tomorrow. So I've been having a fun "single" weekend. Time with my kids and sweet granddaughter.

 14 months - not walking yet but ready

Off to visit my son and his wife this afternoon in woods. Lots cooler where they live.

Have a nice Sunday everyone.

  5. I just noticed that Cassandra Campbell narrates The Burgess Boys - she's one of my favorites, am sure it must be a great production!

    Enjoy the rest of your 'single' weekend... your granddaughter is growing so quickly :-)

  7. She is absolutely adorable!! Being a grandma is so fun! And having a singles weekend is a good thing. I enjoy time to myself and hope you are too. :)

    Glad you're feeling better and how wonderful that you've lost 26 lbs! Wow!! I've been inspired to do the same but I'm not very motivated. I go for daily walks and eat better but I need more exercise. Time to get off the computer and head outside!

  20. Ooh! Like both of those movies. I just bought the book 'We Bought a Zoo' and I'm interested to see how it will compare to the movie.

    1. I'd like to read the book as well, but sometimes it makes one or the other seem not so special:)

      Delete
  21. Oh, I loved both We Bought a Zoo and To Kill a Mockingbird, too! I watched them both for the first time in this past year. I really want to read Under the Dome - it's been in my TBR pile for years now - but it's hard to make time for a 1200-page book!

    Enjoy your books and movies this week -

    1. Under the Dome sure is a heavy tome - good but probably about 300 pages too long.
