Tuesday in paradise...

Oh my gosh that pool feels good.  I usually sit in the shade after I swim until I am mostly dry and read a bit or just enjoy the day.  There is normally no one else there or maybe one or two people.  Well in the summer that is, it's much busier in the winter.  I really wish they would update the furniture though, it's really getting sad looking.  I guess budgets are tight.

I got some great tomatoes at the fruit stand yesterday after seeing Dr. Raymond.  Oh, and that visit went very well, thank you very much.  I can stop taking the Aromasin in November and I don't see her again until January.  That will be five years since the breast cancer.  Yay me!  Five years already, where did they go?  I still remember that feeling when I heard the words "breast cancer".  I was in Podunk at the time and was very lucky to have a wonderful surgeon and only minor invasive surgery and radiation because it was very early.  Have you had your mammogram?  It matters.

Did you notice I went from tomatoes to breast cancer in one paragraph?  Sometimes my brain scares me it jumps around so much.  Anyway back to the tomatoes.  I hate tomatoes that taste like nothing and so many do now but the summertime ones are lovely, juicy, ripe, sweet, amazing.  I bought two, the first one I sliced when I got home and ate it.  The other one I'll enjoy today after cards.

I got some Del Sol nail polish on the cruise.  It goes on blue.  When you go in the sun it turns green.  It's fun!  I put it on my toes too.  They have all kinds of colors and glitters too.  A lot of fun for ten bucks.

So today is canasta and poker, I am really looking forward to it, it's been quite a while since I have played either since the cruise and then being sick afterwards.  Life is getting back to normal.  Normal?  Well maybe not exactly but it's pretty good.

And that, my friends, is all I know today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is totally tits.  Mine will be...


  1. Love the Del Sol color changing nailpolish! I got some on our cruise and love it! I only bought 2 bottles and I NEED more,lol. On our next cruise I will stock up and buy some for female family members too! That pool looks nice!! Hugs :)

  2. So pleased to hear that your app with the oncologist went well Bee. I like the sound of Del Sol, I doubt it would change colour here though we haven't had any sun for ages! LOL

    Your pool looks lovely. :)

  3. The only raw tomatoes I can get S.D. to eat is the tiny cherry tomatoes. He won't eat the regular sized ones but I love them. I really miss New Jersey tomatoes this time of year. They are definitely the best.

  4. Whoohoo for good news from the doctor, and for feeling better and enjoying the pool and the fresh tomatoes! Have a wonderful day.

  5. Glad you are feeling better. Your pool is gorgeous! I know Megan and I would spend hours there if we could. She loves the pool, but gets so cold, so quickly. I always have to get her out long before she is ready. I use her teeth chattering as the time clock!

  6. Daily furry hugs Auntie Bees

  7. Auntie Bee- thank you for sticking up for me - I would nefur set up Nicky like that. Glad you is better. The mom loves tomatoes too! - purrrrssss - xoxoxoxoxox your Sammie Pie

  8. Bacon & tomatoes is a great lunch or even for dinner sometimes. Sorry that I didn't check your blog yesterday. My medication went haywire and when that happens I'm dizzy all day as well we had two guys here putting in windows. We needed a change since it has been 20 years. Oh my God, 20 years.
    You sound and look like you're 10 years younger. WOW! Well have to go my wonderful friend. Have fun today.


  9. Well a big YeeHaw from Tucson on the good news !
    I have been trying to get in the pool everyday to walk too. Not always able to but it is great exercise.

    The Square Ones send woofs !
    cheers, parsnip

  10. has it really been five years? Time flies. So glad it's an all-clear so far. And yes, there's nothing better than a good fresh summer tomato. A nice juicy and meaty one. Not the mealy hot house kind.

    Enjoy today!

  11. Buongiorno!!!

    Tomatoes...my cherry tomatoes are ripening now, my son gave 6 plants on Mother Day! I use tomatoes in many dishes!
    Tomatoes and cancer, a connection exists!

    Have a great Tuesday and funny and lucky games!

    Big hugs!!!

  12. I get a mammogram every single year and have for years and years. Yes, it's important.

    I'm so happy that you are feeling better and you are spot on about tomatoes. They can ruin a good sandwich if they are bad. I've removed them more than once.

    Have a terrific day honey and win big okay? Big hugs. :)

  13. I love the way your mind works! srsly! I wish I had a pool... that somebody else would maintain. :)

    YAY for a great breast recheck!

    Big hugs xoxo

  14. Bee, yes I get mammograms. My daughter is a breast cancer survivor, so she has made all her sisters get mammograms. So happy you had good news at the drs. The pool is nice. Maybe if the twins do not take so many extras next year...there will be funds for chairs. xoxo, Susie

  15. Good news from the doctor is always good. (I just had my own 50,000 mile checkup -- just a week or so ago -- so I may be agreeing just a little too emphatically.)

  16. My appointments have been made and I'm doing my yearly visit to Nassau Radiologic in August.
    You know how I feel about this. 100% ... DO IT!

  17. Great news from the doctor and great news about your lovely day. My day ran fast and furious, but I survived it and rocked it.



  18. that pool looks amazing!

    mmmm summer tomatoes are amazing. :]

  19. Glad that you are cancer free, dear Bee, 5 years and counting:)


  20. I am late but I did go to the farmer's market yesterday. Will get tomatoes next time. Got some good, fresh picked corn. Love that stuff!

    Big hugs, honey...
