It's the weekend!

And look who's in Florida!
Isn't she little now?  Beautiful Roberta...

Then after breakfast and a bit of retail therapy I went and got my hair done.  It really should have been done before this photo!  And I did not buy anything.  I know, you don't believe me but I didn't.

I don't know if you can see it but the wind was blowing so much the water was really moving in the pool so I went in for 35 minutes but it was like an hour workout because I was fighting the current the entire time.  A great workout!  It was only 78 and below what I like to swim in but the water was so warm I went anyway.

So last night I heard the shutters closing on the apartment above me.  That means (I hope) they they are going back home.  They are noisy.  Think Flying Walendas with a marble floor and high heels.  Yeah, that kind of noisy.  But they are very nice and not here much so I shut up.

I bought some Sockeye Salmon yesterday and had one piece for dinner last night.  I like salmon but this was really "strong" tasting.  I know that's the kind you are supposed to eat and not the farm raised ones but I'm not thrilled with the taste.  At all.

I have everything now to make my low calorie chocolate coffee cupcakes.  Stay tuned, I'll get to it soon.  I promise.  A house without cupcakes is not really a house, right?  When I have some in the freezer I am happier than when I don't.

I guess that's all my brain has for you today.  I hope your Saturday is totally tits.  I am sure mine will be!


  1. You look healthy and terrific. so does everyone else!

  2. gah! Blogger just ate my comment!

    You both look CUTE! I need to step up my game! And I do have a bunch of cake mixes and applesauce... I so need to make something yummy!

    I ♥♥♥ salmon. All kinds. Except I hate it when the skin is still on it like the Alaskan Sockeye I got at Sam's last time. Salmon good. Skin ack!

    Have a delightful day! big hugs xoxo

  3. What a lovely photograph - you both looke lovely!

  4. You both look great. I am surprised jeter did not sneak into the picture

  5. Well you both look lovely! Have a great weekend.

  6. Beautiful ladies! Sorry I missed seeing Roberta. You both look great. Srsly. See ya soon!

    Big hugs, honey...

  7. You did a fantastic calorie burn in the pool yesterday with all the wind pushing the water against you!

    Glad the noisy upstairs neighbors are gone.
    Can you install a sound proofing material on your ceiling? Of course, I should have thought about that BEFORE you painted, but I know they exist, Bee.

    Low calorie cupcakes? Did I hear low-calorie cupcakes? Oooooh, can't wait to see you post the recipe:)


  8. You look so great. I like that pink dress. Who is Roberta? She is cute too.

  9. Good bye Walendas.:):) Glad you got to swim. That is a safe exercise, well easier on the joints. Can't wait to see the cakes.xoxo,Susie

  10. Zane made the mistake of buying Sockeye Salmon and I had part of one and then that was it. I do the farm raised salmon they have a Costco. Love it and it's not strong tasting. Zane used the Sockeye for soup. It was awful.

    I don't know who Roberta is so there. One of your regulars I'm sure. I'm glad you got to meet and have breakfast.

    I believe you that you didn't buy anything. Why would you fib? You wouldn't.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

  11. Blacken it with some spices and it will hopefully be better. You can also poach it in some vegetable stock, that may cut the "gamey taste". Then take some FFgreek yogurt and make a red onion/cucumber sauce for it. Or bake it with a bit of Dijon mustard and tarragon.

  12. It's so much fun to meet blogging buddies! Lucky you.

    Both of you ladies look great!

    Sounds like you had a great workout. Enjoy your Saturday! Today may be the day we take in a movie, since we got a gift card for Christmas.


  13. You are both looking great! I love salmon but low calorie cupcakes sound better.

  14. Wow! There we are. I have used Regenerist twice now so I look a lot younger.
    I love you, Bee!
    You are my inspiration!

  15. You both look wonderful, glad you could have fun together.
