It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood….

and I haven’t gone any further than Dunkin Donuts for a cup of coffee. Not highly motivated to get out and about since our plans to meet up with old friends fell through due to my friend’s sinus infection and her feeling crappy!

I cooked a nice breakfast casserole, I’ve done two loads of laundry, scooped a litter box, cleaned a guinea pig cage, straighted my room, scanned some old newspaper documents, and posted some stuff to my blogs. I also sat out on the patio and read a little bit of a new book, and while Princess wanted to lay in the sun. I really could sit out there all day (i.e. nap) if I had a lounge chair or hammock!

Now I am ready to take a little ride.. maybe to a nearby farm to see what produce they have and visit the animals. Nothing like the smell of “farm”, it’s nice an breezy and not humid… that’s a good day to visit.

I posted about our day in Lancaster County – HERE, and some additional photos HERE.

Maybe we will have a movie night tonight. Tara and I have not really watched a movie together since we moved. We seem to spend little time together in the living room, but go to our separate rooms on our computers, etc.

I thought I would play along with the Saturday 9 too.

Saturday 9: Heatwave

1. It’s July. How has the weather been where you are? Since moving home to PA from FL in June, the weather has been AWESOME. We have use the AC only one day. Today is in the low 80s, breezy and low humidity. It doesn’t get much better.

2. What is the best way for you to beat the heat? In FL, I loved to float in our pool, now since I don’t do public pools, if it were really hot and I wanted to get out, we would take in a movie!

3. “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.” Do you buy that? Humidity really makes things worse I think, but hot is still hot. I don’t care if it is dry heat in the desert, 114 is still 114, and too hot for me!

4. Do you like hot tubs or saunas? I like them both.. but haven’t been in either in some time.

5. What’s the hottest you’ve ever been? Hmmm, I’m guessing around 100. Strange thing about FL, it was hot and humid, but rarely broke 100.

6. How many times do you hit the beach in the summer? In FL we hit the beach frequently but not in the summer much, early spring was much nicer. We will probably go “down the shore” to Ocean City NJ, once this summer.

7. When you were a kid, what did you do in the summer? We camped a lot. Most weekends, and usually 3 weeks of vacation.

8. Surfing. Have you ever gotten on a surfboard? Body surf? No and No

9. What’s your favorite summer song? Summer, anything Beach Boys!

and how about the Photo Scavenger Hunt?

This week’s theme – ROCKS.
How about a mother and baby sea lion on some ROCKS at Sea World, Orlando

So what are YOU up to this weekend? I need to think of something for tomorrow, especially if the weather is this beautiful… hmmm Valley Forge Park perhaps? Stay tuned.
