Summer Dayz Summer Dreamz

Oh w ow bring it on Summer 2011!! Heat's cranked up, sun's blaring & air conditioner is turned way down low!
Lazy dayz? Not me! I'm worky worky working!! To much! Seems like there's no balance w my work! Either 48 hour work weeks or 20 hours.. I'm asking my higher power for guidance on this, in meantime I'm getting rest when I need it & playing when I can!!!!

Went to Starbucks late last nite & picked out my Summer 2011 Listening pleasure!







Eddie Vedder: Ukelele Songs! Nice!!







Got my passion sweetened tea shaken! Yummy!!







Then went on to see late showing (summer late movies r da bestest!) Mr. Popper's Penguins! Cuuuuute!!!!!

Gre8t way to unwind after three very long shifts & days of work!!! I luv doing fun fun fun stuff after hard days of working! Hey I work to live, not other way around!!!! I luv treating myself for job well done!!!!

I had a splitting headache when I got off work so decided to take a hot lavender epsom salt bath, drink tea, and soak! Then I did a mini mani/pedi & chose a pinky iridescent color! It always feels good when I pamper myself!!!

I'm committing to yoga classes also. Just have to iron out my cr8zy schedule!

Taking care of me is the hardest but most rewarding thing I can do!

Take care of u & I'll take care of me! Deal???

Summer my time of year....




Ridin' 'round town with all the windows down
Eight track playin' all your fav'rite sounds
The rhythm of the bongos fill the park
The street musicians tryin' to get a start


'Cause it's summer
Summer time is here
Yes it's summer
My time of year
Yes it's summer
My time of year

Stretched out on a blanket in the sand
Kids of all ages diggin' Disneyland
Rappin' on the C.B. radio in your van
We'll give a big "ten four" to the truckin' man

Young boys playin' stick ball in the street
Fire hydrants help to beat the heat
Old man feeding pigeons in the square
Nighttime finds young lovers walking there

In Atlantic City or out in Malibu
Or any where between, I'm telling you
When you feel those balmy breezes on your face
Summer time is the best time any place!

Summertime By War

Luv that song!

Here in Satellite Beach it's been Summer for a while! Hot weather, Hot sand, Hot grrls & guys strutting their stuff. Me? I'm floating on my comfy raft in the pool when I can & staying in air-conditioning when I can't be floating! I luv this time of year & fact where my home is Summer is nearly a perpetual thing! It's almost always summer in Satellite!

With summer comes lazy hazy dayz. My off time consists of movies & reading beading magazines, playing on my iPad, reading my kindle. Also a bit of bead shopping, Bookstore browsing, jewelry designing, embroidery, art journaling & meetings sprinkled in there. Going to dinner at new fav Restaurant we can walk to! The food is fresh, seafood yummy & dressings for the salads are homemade! Lots of cat naps, Dandy Blend (dandelion tea w chicory) with vanilla almond milk chilled! Like the best iced coffee style drink ever!

I'm inspired by....
