    75 degrees sounds like heaven, but I know it must not feel too much like summer. I’ll trade though–do you want our 100 degrees for awhile?

    Hello last week as a NorCal resident! We are soon moving to Georgia, y’all, and are so very excited for land and a big house and sweet southern ways!

    Your Monday post made me so happy! Thanks so much for sharing the positives of Monday!

  7. Wow, 75 degrees! I’m in NY and we’re dying from humidity…without AC. I won’t complain though, the snow will back soon enough! LOVE your photo of the flower. So very pretty.

    Happy Monday. :-)

    Unfortunately, I don’t think the sugar cravings will ever go away Lisa but the mood swings (from lack of sugar intake) will eventually subside.
    Trust me – I was completely addicted to coffee with tons of sugar and flavored creamer and it was a battle for over a year to curb my sugar and caffeine intake but I’m happy to say that I’ve beat the “addiction” and I lost a few pounds while doing it!
    Happy South Beaching!

    Hello hot weather–we’re having an unusually hot week, 90’s plus! Humidity in the 90’s also. Temp wass 78 at 8am and then the power went out for 4 1/2 hours. By the time the power came back, the AC coolness had just about disappeared. Now it’s back to work getting things done I missed out on doing the first 4 hours I was awake.

  11. Robin says:

    Forgot to mention, I’ve never seen a live starfish!! Fantastic!!

    Hello Lisa, your week sounds a bit like ours, besides the temps… Enjoy all the vacation shopping and packing! What lake are you going to? We’re headed to Sunset Beach on the NC coast. Enjoy your family time!

  13. Anne says:

    Cool starfish. I know the real beach will be a lot more fun than the South Beach…haha (couldn’t resist..)
    Have a great time! Family vacations are always FUN!

  14. debbie says:

    cool – never seen the flipside of a starfish! and the bright flower is beautiful.

    enjoy your beach time!
