It is better to attempt something great and fail, than to attempt to do nothing and succeed.

Summer Fun

My moods are ruled by the weather. I am a much happier person from March through November. I am a summer person all the way. I can sit in the sun all day long, but having a pool makes that bearable. I slap my hair up off my neck, kick off my shoes (not that I usually wear any) and soak up the rays. I am a true Alabama girl and wouldn't have it any other way.

I love the water. I don't care if it is the pool, the beach or the river. Residing on or near the water is where you will find me.

Eclipse - Edward vs Jacob (Edward, no question)

Ok, I went to see Eclipse tonight - yeah, I know, better late than never. This book though was my least favorite of the series. It was long, and not just in word count, but the story itself. I never doubted she would be with Edward (the old "the heart wants what the heart wants"). Not to diminish her feelings for Jacob, and though love, not the "you touch my soul," "melt my heart," "I am putty in your hands, do with me what you will" love. The movies are getting better. They encompass the story and feelings of the books and the characters. I have yet to be unhappy with any of the casting. I am eager to see how Breaking Dawn turns out.

I loved the books, couldn't put them down. If you haven't read Stephenie Meyer's novel The Host, you need to. It was slow in some places, just as in the Twilight saga, but she writes smoothly and her stories are unique and captivating (and once again, love the characters).

Black Cloud is in the house

Ughhh!! Okay, I come back down to Florida yesterday. You know, to check on things make sure everything is holding up in my absence. Good thing I did, the pool was sucking air, so I took care of that first. Grass didn't look too bad, but needed a cut. I wake up today after lounging last night in my huge bath tub with a glass of wine and catching up on my programs on my DVR. Today was a wasted day. Every single thing I tried to do, could not be accomplished.

I tried to sign on remotely to my server I left in Alabama. Oops, the internet here was not working. Reset everything several times, to no avail. It was obviously an external problem. Did go and get my nails done, they look fantastic :). Get back and the internet is working here now, so tried to sign on to the server, and it is now offline. Sometimes I wonder why I even try - lol. So, my work suffered today BIG TIME, but I have nice nails, the house, yard and pool are great, and tomorrow is another day. Good thing that when things do work as they should, I take advantage of it and bust some major booty.

I did grab some notes I wrote down in May while I was in the tub about some things that had me thinking and I thought I would blog about. Have plans to compose those at a later time, but for now, time to head up to Alabama.

And for your enjoyment, I am including a picture of one of my beagles in his bed in the laundry room, and our new addition, Thor (a chihuhua) in the other beagle bed. Yes, he does have a bed just his size in a crate in a separate room. He is a love! The beagles have chewed and torn up every bed I have ever bought them, and these were on sale during the holidays. They do curl up in them, usually.
