Monday in paradise...

Ah, Monday!  My day off!  Oh, wait, that's Friday.  And Monday.  And well, pretty much every day that I don't play cards but still...  Oh, and that photo is the ceiling on the Carnival Liberty's Atrium, the colors change all the time, it is beautiful.  The photo does not do it justice.

I heard someone say "dead as a doornail" and guess I've heard that saying all my life but I didn't know what it meant other that really really dead.  Well here's what I found:  in the olden days large flat headed nails were used to strengthen doors.  They were hammered in and bent over on the back.  The nail was then "unusable" again so it was dead.  That's my little known fact for today.

Yesterday was a lovely day.  Lunch with the duck and grocery shopping then he left and I went to the pool and did my exercise for a half hour and floated around for a while longer and then read while I dried off a bit.  The water is fabulous.  Amazing.  Warm and crystal clear and totally tits.  Why did I wait 12 years to go there?  I have no idea.  Duh.

I made some earrings yesterday and fixed a bracelet for a gal.  I tried to make a necklace out of some of those lovely beads my MahJong gal gave me but it didn't look right.  The beads are so pretty but I have to find a way to do them justice.

What is in store for me today?  I have no idea yet.  I shall try to find something wonderful though and I do plan on going back in the pool.  Hope your day is as good as mine...


  1. The atrium photo is beautiful!

    I never knew that about doornails. Thanks for enhancing my education!

  2. I love visiting your blog. So educational! hahahaha! I worked on getting my new laptop loaded up yesterday. And doing my darndest to ruin a perfectly good manicure, too. Bugger.

    Hey... Loaded up Lorraine. I think that is what I shall call her now. LOL.

    Have another lovely day off! big hugs xoxo

  3. Bee, You are making earrings again...great. I hope you can have some fun today. Aren't you glad you got your shopping done? I have to go to the grocery this morning...I totally dread it.xoxo, Susie

  4. I would love to have access to a pool. Mind you it wouldn't be much use here, it's too blooming cold!

    Have a great day Bee. x

  5. Bee is BEEding. Yayyyy! I am getting my teeth cleaned...and doing laundry. Just another Monday.

    Big hugs, honey...

  6. I'm hoping there is a pool in my day - it is supposed to be 32C, that is almost 90F.

    Enjoy your day, Bee.

  7. Have a great Monday, may it bring you sunshine, pool time and some happiness.

  8. Here is our Monday morning fuzzy hug for you Auntie Bee!

  9. I miss swimming. It's been too long since I've been swimming.

  10. I didn't know that about dead as a doornail either. Thanks for the lesson.

    We are still on the boat. We'll head home sometime today and get back to normal for a couple of days. Outside of that just kicking back and enjoying Monday morning.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from hot California. :)

  11. Been so busy with Bethany and then back to work today, I forgot to tell you I got the earrings you sent for football season. They are so beautiful. I might have to find outfits to wear them with before.

    Glad you had a good Sunday, oh how I wish I had a pool to exercise in. It is the most fun way to exercise for sure.

    Big Hugs,


  12. Hope you had some fun by the pool again. Late is better then never, so they say :)
    Glad you are trying BEEding again!
