Oh yeah, that what I'm talking about!

Now that's MY kind of day!  I love that it says 82 and feels like 83!  How funny is that?  So a lovely pool day finally and followed by a wonderful party.  The water was the same temperature as the air so it was really really lovely!

I think my sensible eating may go astray this week as first the Fern House Christmas dinner and party, then the poker holiday party tonight (with Chinese food!) followed by the MahJong holiday luncheon on Wednesday (with Mexican food!)!  Oy.  Anyway I will do my best through all of it and have a wonderful time with lovely friends and good cheer.  And keep exercising too.

At my table at the party there was a guy and his young son, maybe 10 or so years old.  You know me, I always chat them up.  Well this kid was adorable, quite the young man about town.  I asked him if he played sports thinking maybe baseball, football, basketball, stuff like that.  No, he said "oh yes, I play polo, croquet, and soccer".  Polo?  Okay, I guess I was chatting up a rich kid but he was still adorable.  Not snobby at all.  

I got a great gift in the mail yesterday, Apple TV.  Now I have heard of this of course but I'm not exactly sure just what it is or how the heck to hook it up.  I hope someone comes to visit me soon and takes care of it!  So I told this kid about getting it and he proceeded to tell me how wonderful it is and what all it could do.  I should have brought him home with me to hook it up!

So have a wonderful Tuesday y'all.  I will too.  And I'll try not to eat too much.  I did okay at the Christmas party so I only have to get through today and tomorrow!


  1. Oh Bee what lovely photos of you and Chuck.
    Of course the young kids always know what is going on in the tech world !
    I have to install some stuff on my computer and thankfully my daughter offered to help.

    Again you and Chuck look wonderful !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Love the new apple tv. It is great . you will enjoy it. We do alot. You and Chuck both look great. I am jealous of your active social life . I wish I had half the things you do to do.

  3. Oh, let me know what you think of Apple TV! Chuck looks great. You look great. You both look fabulous! We so didn't have that kind of wether yesterday. Ack!

    Have a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  4. I am pretty tech savy but have not looked into apple tv. I'm sure it is great because it is apple. Please report back

  5. Wonderful pictures!! You two look amazing! We have Apple TV and use it here in Japan! We got it last December and use it all the time. We use it for Netflix and once in a while HuluPlus. We enjoy having it. Sounds like you have lots of fun stuff going on!!! Merry Christmas to you guys :)

  6. I love the weather you have there. It's fabulous. It's going to rain here for days and days and days. Oh well.

    You and the Duck look great. I can so relate to all the Christmas parties though. I'm not going to any this year. Just don't want to. They are fun, but keeping your fingers out of all that fabulous food is mighty tough. Enjoy as I know you'll jump right back on the Bee bandwagon after each party.

    Haven't a clue what your new gadget is. I don't stay up on that kind of thing. Heck I can't even turn on the television. Too many remotes. So, I read or blog.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

  7. Love this pic of you and your baby boy... Ok, grown man, but he's still your baby boy. i say find out who the kid is and have him make some spending money for future polo matches. LOL! Have fun at your parties!

  8. Glad that the weather is so warm this week, and you can enjoy the pool, Bee.

    Love the picture of you with Chuck - very in the holiday spirit:)
    Enjoy the food. You'll be back on your healthy eating in no time!

  9. You and Chuck look great. I'm looking forward to meeting him on the BC cruise on the Breeze. Try to work hard watching your weight but most important enjoy the Christmas time.
    Temperature of 83 degrees, I'm so well you know what I mean while I'm 34 degrees. See you my fabulous friend.


  10. It is sunny and 60 with no wind, so it is fine here. You two look great. Really great. Glad you had fun and yes, you should have hired that kid to help!

    Big hugs, honey...

  11. Bee, I love well behaved children. The ones who sit still at the table and aren't rude. Isn't it kind of funny they way kids know all about today's electronics.Sounds like a nice day at the pool.xoxo,Susie

  12. That sounds like a great kid! Yes, you could have had him be your Apple TV advisor. :-) Glad you have good swimming weather. Enjoy!

  13. Ciao!!

    Glad that the temp is so nice for you...ours is cold and foggy!
    Tomorrow min.-7°, max -2°C...I'm still making tortellini, my hand are ...out, perhaps more than 3.000 pieces! Alone!!!
    Next I've to bake my Christmas breads!!!

    So, you know why I watch a bit TV, then to bed!!!

    Big hugs, honey

  15. Empress Bee, you and the duck both look marvelous! Is he getting a new suit for the cruise, looks like he needs something a bit slimmer. Glad you have great weather so you can swim.

    Big Hugs,


  16. When I am swimming here in Sarasota, I am thinking of you in your pool.
    I plan to swim everyday, even when those cold fronts come through!


  17. Hi Bee, I've got Apple TV. Love it! Our son gave it to me and, fortunately, hooked it up for me.

    I'm thinking of you often these days as it's the season to be wearing my snowman earrings :-)


  18. Bee, you look fantastic in that photo! You've accomplished so much this year and I marvel at your resolve.

    I'm deeply envious of your weather forecast. What I wouldn't give for just a little sunshine, let alone those temperatures!


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
