Are You Beach Ready?

Ah, summer. What? Summer?! Yes, summer is upon us. Even though the official first day is still a few weeks away, the weather is warming, schools are dismissing, and beaches are calling. Having recently returned from a beachy vacay myself, I thought it only appropriate to share some tips on my favorite beach necessities. Besides, it gave me a reason to take all these fun pictures which my sister thought were crazy! And, none of my tips have anything to do with losing weight, exercising, or fitting into the perfect suit.┬áSo just grab your old suit, or buy a new one if you feel the need. But here’s the important stuff:(You can click on each image to enlarge flip thru them!)

I have to thank my lovely daughter and son-in-law for loaning us their home close to the beach. And their chairs, towels, and beach bag! Imagine trying to pack those things on a plane!

Now get out there and enjoy your summer! And don’t forget the sunscreen.



Okay, so some of my new blogger friends have gotten me hooked on reading their “Currently” posts each week. It’s pretty interesting to see what everybody is up to, obsessing about, etc… So now it’s my turn to give it a whirl. So here goes; hope you enjoy it!

This week, I’m Currently

Watching: The Following, starring Kevin Bacon. Scary! But I can’t help it, I’m hooked! imageAnd there are only a couple of episodes left. Also, General Hospital, which I know, I know, it’s a soap opera. But it’s the only one I watch. So that’s my afternoon coffee break indulgence! Dancing With The Stars! Is Kellie Pickler amazing, or what? And Jacoby Jones, and all the rest of the cast. Awesome! Andy Dick made Carrie Ann Inaba cry last week. So sweet! So there. Those are my picks for the week.

Looking For: Spring! Where for art thou spring? Okay, I guess April showers are to be expected in…um, April. But I want and need to run outdoors already! I’m also looking for May. My daughter from Savannah comes to visit. Then my sister and I go to Savannah to house and puppy sit (I call them my grand-puppies) while my daughter goes to Jamaica! Fun all around!
imageGrowing: Well, not much. It’s been cold, and now it’s rainy. And I don’t have my vegetables in the ground yet. But I am growing in The Lord. Hopefully a little everyday! And I think my confidence is growing in running. Growing in my “green” knowledge and efforts! And growing eager for upcoming events!

Riding: Absolutely nothing! No bicycle, no motorcycle, no waves, no horses… I will be riding on a plane in May! Whoopie!

Reading: The Story, by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee. Almost finished. Ready for final chapter! imageIt is, The Bible As One Continuing Story Of God And His People. I’ve enjoyed it as an additional way to study The Bible as a church body, thru worship services and small group study, as well as my own personal study time. I highly recommend it!

Also highly recommended, Big Green Purse! But I will be writing more about that at a later time. ; )
