My Week At A Glance 5


This is my first attempt at hosting a blog hop.  
Feel free to join and recruit your fellow bloggers!
  
The rules are simple.  
1.  Write a post about your week, Anything you want! Or just link to your favorite post. 
2.  Please copy and paste the Week At a Glance button to that post. 
3.  Come here and  link up your post below.  Linky will be active from Saturday - Tuesday!

You can then have fun "hopping" around to read about other bloggers weeks or their favorite post of the week.


We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary.  My hubby is soooooo romantic...here is my gift:

Before you get all disgusted with what a 'loser' guy he must be to get me a trimmer....it's what I wanted!  I'm a tough one to buy for. I'm allergic to flowers, don't wear much jewelry and eat very little chocolate.  So years ago my  husband told me I'd have to TELL him what I wanted for gifts.  So I do, and I usually get what I ask for.  (yes, you can call me spoiled)


Starting a week with a gift makes the rest of the week a bit of a disappointment!  BUT not this week.


On Tuesday I received an even BETTER gift.  My parents arrived from Florida for the summer.  They will be spending the whole summer with us.  It's so nice to have them around after a very long winter.  


My daughter and I have decided that we need to work on getting some six packs.....NO, not beer, but muscle.  Tummy bulges are not pretty, so we will begin working on that with sit-ups.  YUCK...I hate exercise.  BUT I hate fat even more.  


I hope to get from this:                                                                              To this !



   





Do you think I can do it?


My first attempt I was able to do 10 sit-ups....only 10!  But that is a start...and I will keep going, if I can keep moving....I can't believe how very sore I am....OUCH!


I was visiting a friend when I saw a hummingbird guard.  I watched this guy for over 1/2 hour:


Never realized these cute little guys were so territorial  


Living in Northern New England can be very irritating at times.  Especially when the temperature goes from 86 and humid to 54 and cold in only 24 hours!  The saying goes:  "if you don't like the weather, just wait a minute, it will change".  I'm still waiting for the change BACK to hot and humid!
My husband just said we are expecting a frost tonight....are you kidding me????

  4. I could watch hummingbirds for hours. When we lived in SC, they would often get stuck in our garage. We'd have to wait until they were tired, then put on gloves, pick them up and give the sugar water, take them outside, and watch them fly away. It was so awesome to hold one of those little birds in my hand and watch him drink to gain his energy!
    This is a great idea for a blog hop! Hope it goes well!

    I guess you can still read my post by going straight to my blog at:
