I'm still alive and well

?....but I have been busy enjoying the summer with my granddaughter. I am doing all the things I could not do while my children were little, because I was a full time working mom. Now I get to go on trips, go to the pool, the beach, the park, the movies, etc. My house is a little messier and I am not cooking like I use to but no one is complaining.

My garden needs a little more care. Soon I will have tons of tomatoes and I just can't wait. i need to find some new recipes.

Hot Time In The Summer

It has been very hot and sticky here for about a week. Really feels like summer now. Too hot to cook or crochet. My daughter and I my grand daughter to Hershey Park for the weekend. It was her first time in a hotel and she loved it. I took some pics with a real not digital camera and will post them (maybe) when they get developed. I spent a day with her at Keansburg Beach at a water park and a day at Mountain Creek water park. When we are home we are outside in my pool or at the town pool. She is learning to swim and is fearless and adorable. We are really having a blast. I am so sorry I was not able to do this with my own children, but I was a work outside of the house mom. Those of you that are lucky enough to stay at home with your children enjoy every moment. Time goes so quickly.

On the flip side, I am so tired when she goes home that I have not done laundry, cooked, my house is a mess, have not paid bills (or blogged). Oh well!!! Maybe I will be a little more appreciated after this.

Today was much more comfortable. A perfect day. I spent it at the park with a playgroup. Then came home and did some laundry. Tomorrow I am going to do a playgroup at the town pool and then maybe I will throw a couple of burgers on the grill. I may even pay some bills and do a few rows on my ripple.

That's how I roll now!

I am still hanging with my family. We have been cooking, having cocktails, talking, hanging out by the pool. Tons of dishes, dirty towels, laundry but lots of fun. We went to the Bronx Zoo. This place is amazing. I never get tired of it. We are leaving for Hershey Park for the weekend. The kids will have a great time. Monday I will be going to a water park with my little pumpkin and then try to get my house and myself back to normal.

AND NOW MY ANIMAL JOKE. (please if you are offended easily... don't read further!!!)

A monkey is sitting in a tree smoking a joint when a lizard walks past and looks up and says to the monkey, "Hey! What are you doing?" The monkey says, "Smoking a joint, come up and have some!" So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they share a few puffs. After a while the lizard says his mouth is dry and is going to get a drink from the river.

The lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls into the river. A crocodile sees this and swims over to the lizard and helps him to the side, then asks the lizard, "What's the matter with you?" The lizard explains to the crocodile that he was sitting smoking a joint with the monkey in the tree, got too stoned and then fell into the river while taking a drink.

The crocodile decides he has to check this out, he walks into the jungle, and finds the tree where the monkey is sitting still finishing the joint. The Crocodile looks up and says, "Hey!" The Monkey looks down and says... "Fuuuuuuuuck, dude... how much water did you DRINK?!"

I hope you all had a great 4th of July. We had bad weather so we hung around the house and went out for dinner. No reservations needed.
