Default Happy 4th of July!


Morning Mates, and a very Happy 4th of July!
I trust all of you will be celebrating in some form or another today, hope the weather cooperates!
Our weather is still pretty good, we are enjoying a prolonged bout of heat and sunshine which is a real treat!

Today is aquafitness, gardening, an evening shift at Ship Hector and Trivia Night at the pub.
Speaking of Ship Hector, a friend of mine took this fabulous photo last night during the full moon - spectacular!

Oh! How could I forget? I got to go rollerskating last night for the first time in the almost 3 years since I've lived here!
A local group is trying to put together a roller derby team and needed someone to teach them how to skate - me! We met at the local YMCA and I had SO much fun, it felt wonderful to be back on wheels again!

Good Morning! CruiseMates!! It is a beautiful day here in Lakeland. No plans for the day. Just to spend it quietly here at home. I have plenty I can do here at the house. I do think I will go take a dip in the pool this morning.
Donna, So nice to see you up and "rolling" again. Have fun and enjoy. I know if I tried skating again I would break every bone in my body. I think the last time I skated I was in my teens.
Have a fantastic fourth Cruise Mates!

Good morning mates. It's quiet here so far. I have no plans. Everything is cancelled as far as fireworks. I may turn the tv on and watch the Boston Pops if I'm not reading. It's too hot to try to do anything outside, too.

My niece is coming to spend Friday night with me. Our plans include lunch and a movie Saturday afternoon. My daughter and her friends are going to the zoo in Little Rock that day. I looked at her like she was crazy when she told me that. She explained that it's going to be almost free to get in and they are just going to hit a few highlights and then hit the mall. I guess it's so hot that the zoo has had to reduce the admission to almost nothing and the only ones dumb enough to go are the young ones.

Donna, I'm glad you got to skate. You look happy in the pic. Love the pic of the ship.

Have a wonderful day all.

Good morning. Another overcast morning but that will burn off soon enough. Then we lose our col weather.y

A quiet day here. I guess everybody took off for parts unknown. We're going out for lunch. Should be able to get in anywhere we want.

Donna, the pics were great!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA!

Good morning Cruise Mates from a somewhat cooler Arizona desert, where, surprisingly, we will have a cooler day today than much of the rest of the country. We've gone from 113 degrees a few days ago to a projected high today of only 94! If we don't break 100 today, it'll be the first time since sometime in May!

Donna, I always love your pictures and am usually guilty of enjoying them without letting you know how much I appreciate the work you do to share them with us. But I must say that the best one is the one today of you on your skates. I know how much skating has meant to you since you were a girl. But the really great thing about that picture is not the skating part, but the obvious results of all your hard work lately with the diet and exercise. Girl, you look GOOD! Color me impressed!

Have a great day Cruise Mates, and stay safe!

Thanks so much Jennifer, it was hard work, but the best thing is that healthy eating and lots of exercise have now become my way of life and I feel better for it!
p.s. glad you enjoy the pics too!
