Checking out the new park

Good afternoon!  I had my interview this morning.  It was the easiest interview i’ve ever done.  Straight to the point, none of the, what is your best and worst asset etc…Just state what you did at your past job and a few other things.  I did well but I think they may want someone with more experience?  That’s just the vibe I got.  The drive was AWFUL!  I would be on the road for an hour and 10 mins everyday.  I should know something by next week so we’ll see.


Today marks a year that I lost my Grandpa Bailey.  I really can’t believe he’s gone.  I still talk to him and I know he watches over me.  I had a Vanilla latte in his memory today.  He liked hot regular ones but I got an iced skinny one 😉  It makes me happy that I put a note with his casket telling him to keep his powder dry.

Then Boomer and I went to check out one of many lovely parks here.

Is that a bunny?

A doggie fountain!  How cute?

I LOVE Daisies!!!

It even had a carousel!!


It was a nice day.  I came home and did a leg workout.  Now i’m thinking about doing some step aerobics. 


What the temperature like in your neck of the woods?  It’s HOT here!  86 and muggy…yuck!



  1. Hey girl – sorry to hear about your grandpa! That park looks really nice. It’s in the 90’s and humid right now. Hello Southern Summers. Enjoy the step workout!

  2. holy crud! that doggie fountain is AWESOME. sorry about your gramps 😦 glad you had a latte in his honor. that’s so cute.

  3. A doggie fountain?! so funny but guess the dogs appreciate it! 90* today…trick is to move slowly 🙂

  4. It’s chilly here for some odd reason. Around 72…which is chilly for this time of year here. Good luck with your interview but that commute does sound like a bear!! Sorry ’bout your grandpa but that was a nice little way to honor and think of him.

  5. HEY! just catching up from the past week or so–LOVE reading up on your post!!!!
