Wednesday is not MahJong this week...

This is my "bee" ring (given to me by a dear friend) for good luck at poker.  And yes, I have natural nails this week.  Next week, blue!  Look out!  But once again it did not help me win.  I lost thirty-eight bucks.  

I am not going to MahJong today because there is a condo board meeting about redecorating the hallways and I am SO hoping this will happen.  Our hallways are dreadful but no one wanted to spend the money to redo them.  Maybe finally it will happen.

Yesterday I had to go to the pool early or I wouldn't be able to go between canasta and dinner and poker so I was in by 9, it was warm enough and I had a great workout.  

I met another lady there that I didn't know, she has lived here 3 years.  I do know her husband but didn't know it WAS her husband, I met him at Nature's Way Cafe, he owns it and I was (complaining) that they don't have the nutrition information available for their food.  He helped me build a low cal wrap and I thanked him.  Both are very nice.  Maybe a new friendship for me but she does not play cards.   Too bad.

I have a (diet) friendly tip for you.  I like orange juice but it is very heavy in calories and sugar, though natural sugar, but still sugar.  Well I have crushed ice on my refrigerator door and I fill a glass half full with the crushed ice and add 2 ounces of orange juice.  It's nice to suck on the flavored ice chips and you get the full taste of the juice.  Sometimes I also fill the glass up with Perrier or Pellagrino water.  Anyway it refreshes me and it lasts a long time.  

Guess that's all I know for today.  It's beautiful so I'll be at the pool before the meeting.  Hope your day is as good as mine!


  1. I hope they do the improvements too. We have had that issue here as well. People complain about stuff but when the solution means they have to spend money than they will just keep complaining.

  2. Oh, how fun! The bee's jewels match your tiara pretty good, too! Dontcha think?

    The acid in OJ bothers my acid reflux something terrible so now I buy SunnyD. They have 2 awesome new flavors out that say "Limited Edition" but I am hoping they keep them. Orange Strawberry and Orange Colada. Yum!

    Hooray for a new friend. Maybe she will just be a non-card playing pool friend! Good luck at the board meeting. I so hate meetings.

    Big hugs xoxo

  3. The bee ring is cute. Bee, you seem like a friend type of person, from this blog. You make friends easily. I wish you luck with the decorating. It's nice when the place you live in takes an interest is staying current with decor. xoxo, Susie

  4. I love you bee ring, and it's so you. I want it to always give you good luck starting now. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day honey and I hope you can get those hallways done proper. Big hugs. :)

  5. Auntie Bees
    I would love to play (pat pat pat) with your pretty ring.
    Furry hugs

  6. Hey Bee, I really like that ring that you have on your finger. It fits you perfectly. Well the children have gone to school and it's much quieter around here even though it was quiet at the beginning. We have Cole with us today. This be the last time we will have him. The big boy starts school Friday. It's going to be really quiet around here.
    I went early this morning to get my blood test, it took me about 85 minutes when my number was called and the lady took three picks and still couldn't find my vein so I had to leave until next week with the other guy WHO knows how to find my vein. I'm so frustrated at the moment.
    Have to go now my lovely friend. Ciao.


  7. Guess you'll need a different ring now, though, right?

  8. That's too bad about the ring's mojo. Maybe it needs a blessing to perform.

  9. I like the bee-ring. your juice recipe is good. It's like the drink, Orangina (a fruity sprtizer). Love the stuff!

  10. Just stopping buy to say Happy Wednesday.

    Big Hugs,


  11. Sorry to hear that your bee ring hasn't been bringing you any luck yet, perhaps it's saving it up for one heck of a big win? That would bee fantastic and definitely something to buzz about!

  12. Hope the meeting went well. Budgets are limited everywhere :)
    Will try the juice trick for sure. I used to be addicted to OJ. LOL. Hubby loves apple juice.
    Hugs from Ohio,

  13. Adorable ring...just perfect for you.

    Hope the meeting went your favor, of course.

    Big hugs, honey...

  14. Buongiorno!
