beach bums



Tomorrow we're heading off to the beach for a week. It will be our fourth year at the same spot, with the same friends staying next door, in the same block of units. Just call me the Routine Queen.

Last year, although we still had some fun, we had both children sick at various times over the week. So this year, I will consider us eternally blessed if everyone remains hale and hearty for the week!

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope you enjoy your week. See you soon!

Jelly, thank your for your kind comments on my blog!
I wish you a happy week at the beach.
It is tipped to be wet & miserable on the beaches close to us, so hope yours is nicer!

The beach, what a great idea! As I look out at the rain and wind and cold...

Don't forget to send in your writing contest entry before you leave!

Susan, you must have ESP! I sent my entry in today. It's no literary masterpiece, but it's not awful either. I did my best!

Have fun at the beach. Ha ha, if I went to the beach now, I'd get hypothermia. People actually do jump in the lake this time of year, but its done mainly for charity...
Anyhow, you are not the routine queen. You know a good thing that makes the kids happy, and you run with it.

Yes, the beach sounds ideal to me now as I sit here watching the rain pour down again (still!) and the wind blow.
Have a wonderful time with your family Jelly and I hope and pray that everyone stays well!
I'm glad you got your entry sent in. Best of luck kiddo!!!

Happy, happy (and healthy) vacation to you all. Have fun, eat well, play well, kiss the kids and fatty, and enjoy yourself.

Good luck to you on the writing competition. It's a good thing you have sent it in -- otherwise Susan would never let you forget it, eh Susan?

Waiting for lots of glorious vacation photos.

Oh, the beach. That looks like a little piece of magic.

Enjoy the sand, sun and surf. And most especially, enjoy them kiddies you've got!
