Beach Time Soon

This will probably be a short post tonight. Dick went to his regular Tuesday meeting, but I have my daughter, Jayne with me so don't want to spend too much time on this crazy computer. She is watching a show right now that I am not so into, so will take advantage. I am a little too full though as we had our own version of turf and surf. Rib eye steak and sauted sea scallops with lots of fresh steamed veggies. So very good.

So far we have had a great time since she came. We went shopping to try to find something new for me to wear to the wedding next month, but didn't see anything that I liked as well as the things I already have, so I expect I will just wear a skirt and a dressy top. It is going to be on the beach at Lake Tahoe and me son informs me that he is wearing chinos and a sport shirt to get married in. The wedding invitation says casual dress and to wear appropriate shoes for the beach (whatever that means) I asked Sue what she was going to wear and she says she is thinking of wearing dressy pants and a dressy top. I'll be darned if I will wear pants to my son's wedding! I didn't get to go to his first wedding, but at least I will sorta dress up at this one.

Today we spent most of the afternoon in the pool and the jacuzzi. It was fun and even though the temperature outside was 110, it was still nice in the pool. We both added a lot to our tan and I am about as dark as I want to get. I look better with a little tan I think. Tomorrow she is going to beautify me. I have to tell you that she is very good at this sort of thing. She is going to trim my hair, give me a manicure AND a pedicure and best of all, trim my eyebrows. My brows are so light and grey that you can hardly see them at the ends. I can never see them enough to pluck them. I hate the way some people my age pencil a dark line where you can't see the hair. Jayne reminded me that it's best to use a powder rather than a pencil on ones brows. I have some, I just forgot that I did. She will do her best to make me look my best. It seems like the time has just flown by since she came Sunday. We will go to the beach Thursday and we are both looking forward to seeing everyone. We all have such a good time at the beach when we are all there. The only one that won't be there is Rich. We will all miss him, but Jayne will REALLY miss him as they always pal around together. Those two are so close and I love that.

Will get back at you next Tuesday...........til then, my love to all



  1. Can't wait to see all of you here, Mom. The weather is gorgeous,


  2. Well, first things first: I LOVE scallops, and paired with steak? HEAVEN. I'm sure you'll look lovely for the wedding. Jayne is right - powder for your brows. Works like a charm - much softer than pencil.
    The weather here is glorious - not like last summer. You'll have a wonderful time. I hope to see you at some point, but haven't talked to Sue. She's had her hands full. Enjoy everything!

  3. Have a great time at the wedding..and take some pics and post them so I can see how "foxy" you look! They say a tan makes you look 5lbs thinner. My saying is: "Brown fat looks better than white fat". I stole that saying from a friend! Love it. Have fun now!

  4. You are sure having HOT weather. I think here in mid California we are having the mildest summer ever. We are usually over 100' most of this month.

    That's a great idea to have your skin get use to the sun before you go to the beach. I hope you have a very wonderful time with your family!

  5. I am so happy that you are enjoying having your daughter with you. I hope you enjoyed all the pampering. It sounds so fun to be able to enjoy a pool. We lived in Las Vegas for 7 year and had a pool and it was so much fun for our kids. The beach sounds like a fun adventure. You are living a very busy life and I love hearing about it.
    Blessings to you!

  6. Have a fantastic time at the wedding. Love that your daughter is helping you get gussied up.

    You dress as you please and knock 'em dead with your smiling face.
