This and That

This past was brutal. It was almost 100 degrees for the past few days.  I hate the heat and the humidity.  The fact that I have breathing problems does not make the weather better. How was the weather where you live?

It seems that everyone I know has a big problem now. Whether it be illness, illness of a parent, or various other things it's been a rough week. I hate to see people in physical or mental distress.

I will get back to regular posting tomorrow.

Going through old photos makes me sad. Sometimes I cannot bear the thought of it.  Last night I was searching for something else and found this photo of Mom.  Do you have trouble searching through photos?

Self Improvement

This picture describes how I feel right now-not happy with the way I look! Granted I have been through a lot but now it's time to diet.  My breathing problems prohibit me from doing much exercise so diet it is!! Wish me luck.

Drybar at has finally come to the Main Line.  Today was my first Drybar Experience and I loved it.

Please excuse my selfie.  It's not the greatest.  My nose is not centered evenly on my face and it seems to be getting worse lately.

It's been so hot and humid lately.  I am good about drinking water but with these great bottles from it makes it easier.

I am very traditional when it comes to decor.  For those of you who know me from my previous blog Preppy 50 and Loving Lilly you know that I lived with my Mother for many years.  When she passed away in 2014 I sold my house and moved to an apartment.  This is my living and dining room.  It's a mini version of my house.

We all know the saying that life gets in the way.  This week has been hectic.  Between work and keeping up with friends I am beat. Let's remember that it is about 100 degrees in Philadelphia today and is expected to be 105 degrees tomorrow.  I find myself pulled in many directions. Between work, building friends, old friends, and old neighbors I am stretched very thin.  I try to keep up with everyone and sometimes it's just not possible to be there for everyone all of the time.

I find that summer comes and goes way too quickly. I normally vacation in the winter and the summer. I hope that I will be able to squeeze a few shore days in during August.  Are you feeling pushed and pulled in many directions??

Saying No

Is it me or do you have trouble saying no? Because I lived with my Mother as an adult I see the need to say yes more than to say no.

An acquaintance of mine in my building asked me to take her to the train in downtown Philly this morning. She was not feeling well so she cancelled her trip. I made other plans for the day.  As I was walking out of my apartment she called and wanted me to take her to urgent care.  I had to say no as I was on my way to visit a sick friend.  She has family close by .  I still feel guilty.
