Day dreaming today ~ Beach Bum Girl Wishes to Escape

Today is another fun filled day of papers, reading textbooks, exam and quizzes.  I however find myself day dreaming about lounging on the shore wishing I had a refreshing cocktail in my hand and a golden tan that I have managed to obtain (unlikely at this point with no outdoor time…a girl can dream) and the warm ocean breeze softly caressing my hair as the sunsets off in the distance.  My countdown is still going and I can hardly wait for the time to be finished not that I need time to rush by, way to much to accomplish until the time is up.  I do hope to manage to get in a walk with the infamous Maxwell today, he however believes it is far to hot to be outside for any period of time.  He is a smart dog.  Here is a pic of just where I would like to be, this one actually reminds me of being on the Isle of Vieques in Puerto Rico.  On this island in this particular spot just behind me is an open air bar with an attached hotel that provides the same view, it was amazing.  Maybe one day I will make it back there as well.  I have picked my house to purchase on that island as well.  Once again, a girl can dream RIGHT?!?

Friday Night Beach Dreams

It is rainy here tonight but that is not where my mind is at…I am dreaming of relaxing on the beach lounging in these chairs!


The picture is missing my cooler and I think I can see a suspended bed off to the right in the shade for when I really need to relax (LOL).  Been thinking about maybe a business that I could start up at the beach have had many thoughts, but I really wish someone needed a lounge chair tester for the beach.  I would be really thorough, testing in all positions, laying on my side, back and stomach…I would adjust the chair in all positions and do some jumping on it as I returned from cooling off in the water.  If anyone knows of this position being opened please let me know as I will apply immediately.  I could also test out the suspended beds for height, strength, and comfort among other things.


Willing to relocate to the beach as well.

Happy Friday evening everyone!

Back from the Beach – oh, so sad!

Well, it’s back to reality, returned from the beach this weekend.  Ten days of time in the sun and sand, with the waves and surf, and all the great weather was a well spent relaxing time.  Now it is time to return to the real world and back to work and classes start tomorrow as well.  Managed to get one class done, gotta love the pre-semester courses, 3 credits accomplished in 19 days.  Now three classes start tomorrow, two are half semester courses that also only last a month, one is a full semester.  I will accomplish completing 20 credits this semester and will be glad when it is behind me but I am going to make the most of it.  I am packing for my trip to Detroit right now, fly out tomorrow afternoon and I am finding the heaviest portion of my luggage will be the three text books I am toting along with me.

Spent a lovely day with the youngest daughter today ended the day with dinner at Fox Ridge Pizza.  Our server was wearing a t-shirt that stated “What Does the Fox Say?”  made me smile.

Maxwell has been trying to catch up on his rest, he just has too much fun at the beach much like me, and well the ride back was even more exciting for him.  He will be happy when I return to work, not so much that I am leaving him and going out of town but back to his routine of sleeping 18 hours a day makes him a calm happy boy!

Enjoy beach

So now I will be back to enduring the work and the homework, until I can return to the coast but as always I will be dreaming of my next adventure on the beach.

Here’s to living the next dream!

CupCake going on a trip….TO THE BEACH!!!!! WOO-HOO can hardly wait!

So, this beach bum girl is finally headed back to the gulf to soak up some rays and enjoy the sand, surf and well, let’s face it a bit of alcohol will be involved.  Currently cramming to get all of my class work done, this Pre-mester for summer is going to be the death of me, full course credits in 19 days…well let’s just say taking 20 quizzes in 19 days along with homework discussions and oh yeah a text book that is 687 pages long not including the appendix that is utilized for the problem sets.  Did I mention they didn’t think they packed enough in the text so they wrote on the inside of the cover in the front lots of tables and data that for whatever reason the professor thinks we should read.  Oh well, class started on May 11th and ends on May 29th, at this point I have completed 14 quizzes, and I am on a roll.   I should just relax since it’s only one class for the pre-mester I have 6 more to go this summer, but hey, I love to put myself under pressure.  Heck if I don’t do it someone else will, so it may as well be for something I am striving for….

Well back to the purpose of this post…..I AM GOING TO THE BEACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So excited and MAX is too, he just doesn’t quite know it yet.  His lazy self is sleeping on the floor right now next to me while I take a short break to post this since I may have fried some brain cells with the last quiz, really we need to know how much a person’s “VO2 Max” is the maximum?  Anywho, I AM GOING TO THE BEACH!!!!!!!! Can you tell I am excited…..more to come when my brain cells recover!!!!

Here’s a shot of what I dream of…..

Happy Monday everyone!

Return from Spring Break

Spring Break in Panama City Beach spending time at the beach house was a blast.  Getting back in gear with homework and work/work to start the week off right now.  Spent lots of time at the beach with the sand between my toes and the warm breeze blowing, salt air smell and the crashing waves.  There was even an awesome surf day but with no wetsuit and the temperatures of the water being so frigid I watched with envy as an experienced surfer “dude” rode the waves like a champ.

Here are a few snapshots from the trip, hope you enjoy…..

Maxwell Smart was actually quite pleased when playing on the sand, but he does not swim in the gulf or ocean (YET! – mom’s still working on that one)

Maxwell was so glad when we arrived in Panama City Beach, FL, he does like the warm weather!
