Back On Track Tuesday

Brit Boy went back to work today. Yesterday was a bank holiday here, so we had one more day to hang out. We watched a couple of movies and just relaxed around home. Speaking of movies, we have some buy one get one free tickets that we're having to use up before June, so we’re so excited to see the new Star Trek movie and Angels & Demons. We saw The Uninvited last week and it was pretty good. It had a twist at the end and it was kinda spooky. The thing that really stuck with me though was the beautiful house that this family lived in. The house was on the edge of a lake and it just looked so peaceful. Loved it! (smile) I love movies and so does Brit Boy, but lately I’ve been really into enjoying movies while I check out the house in the background. (smile) Guess I’m looking forward to our future house.

Anyway, around the yellow house, I’m just getting back into my groove after my little break with Brit Boy. First thing this morning, it kind of looked like we’d had a party all week, so I had to straighten things up a bit and get some laundry done. I also got back on my exercise again. I hadn’t worked out in over a week so I needed to get back in the groove. I’m trying to take better care of myself these days. (smile)

And then, once I got the household engines running again, I sat down with my laptop. I’m here typing out this blog entry on one screen and I’m working on my other writing on another. I’ve decided to get back on track with this part of my life too…writing. I neglect it sometimes and when I do, I feel like something’s missing. So I’m going to get more focused upon doing the writing that I love in hopes that one day someone else will read it. (smile) Stay tuned.

So today is a getting back on track day…Happy Tuesday! :-)

I have to get on with the excercising as well. I put on 8 lbs since last fall. I have cousin's wedding to go to this weekend and I'm scared that I will bust out of the dress that I got 2 months ago :o)
Happy Tuesday, Dori!

Sounds like you've have a relaxing time. Glad you are back.

Hmmm...I wonder why getting back into the groove is such a mental obstacle sometimes. :-)

Hey Dori, I checked out Stourhead and I'm in love. This time of year, bluebells, magnolias, rhododendrons, and camellias are showing off their colorful beauty, I suppose. I wish I could see it. I don't know if you remember the Azalea Bowl at Callaway Gardens, but it's always a favorite of ours. Thanks for sharing.

I do hope you get back to writing because you have talent and a beautiful, kind way with words. By the way, I enjoyed Brit Boy's blog.

Hi Dori!

We enjoyed the bank holiday as well. We went camping in the moors and enjoyed some beautiful weather.

Am looking forward to seeing Angels and Demons. I loved the book but you know what they say about movies after you've read the book. Anyhoo...

Have a great day!

Ivanhoe,
I put on another 8 pounds on top of your 8 in the last year. LOL. I know you'll look great. Happy Thursday! :)

Jodi,
Me too! LOL. Happy Thursday :)

Se'lah,
Yeah, I'm working on relaxing more :)

Jacqueline,
It's so true...those mental obstacles are very often there aren't they? :) Yes, Stourhead is beautiful. It is simply magical. Whenever you get over here, we'll have to show it to you. Callaway Gardens is a place that I want to take Brit Boy one day. I think he'd love it.

Mountain Woman,
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement about my writing :) It's something I've always been drawn to do. I'm glad you enjoyed Brit Boy's blog.

Julieanne,
Your bank holiday sounds great. Brit Boy has read the Angels & Demons book, but I haven't. I'll do it in reverse maybe and read it after I see the movie :) I'm so ready to see this film. You have a great day too! :)
