the beach trip i never posted about...

if you are visiting from sew, mama, sew and looking for my may day giveaway, please click HERE

so we went to the beach 2 weeks ago & i failed to blog daily...truth be told i just didn't feel like it...i didn't feel like doing anything but being lazy...

however, the owls on the balcony managed to keep a sharp eye on the horizon for anything amiss...perhap rabbits, norman's woman?


the weather was a mixed bag...most days it was windy, sort of cool (like 70s), off and on rain showers...the water was COLD (well to me, perhaps someone from up north would think different...i think the weatherpeeps said the ocean temps were 75)


the other owl made sure the people at the building next door weren't doing anything sketchy:

over the winter new erosion fencing was installed and more sea oats planted...the old fence was in complete disrepair:
also over the winter a brand new MACK DADDY tv was purchased for the den...this came in handy for watching all of the season finales and near finales that were on that week: LOST!, grey's anatomy, ungly betty, DWTS, american idol, hockey playoffs...now i absolutely NEED (notice i didn't say want) a ginormous flat screen HDTV in my house:

most everyone brought a 'project' for the week...the husband brought his new cross stitch, 'M' brought bubbles for her sister's upcoming wedding to tie bows on, i brought fabric to cut out buntings, MIL brought pj pants to sew:

we only went on the beach one day...one day we got pedicures, one day we went shopping at the outlets...the rest of the time we sat around like slugs...
i managed to read 4 books while we were there: stori telling, mommywood, summer on blossom street and certain girls.


next time you see these toes in the sand it will be on a different coast...

i'm always glad to return home from the beach or any vacation as i miss my fur kids SO much...

tyler doesn't understand why we didn't take him along as he has his swim trunks all ready!
happy thursday!

So glad you got to relax at the beach! What did you think of the Tori Spelling books?

Sometimes, it's just nice to be away somewhere where you can just "be". We going in a few weeks and I plan on doing a whole lot of nothing.

I totally think Tyler should be a swimwear model.

It sounds like you had a great week. I'm glad you didn't work so much on your vacation this time.
