Hey yeah Ruby I guess it was a fairly healthy option - I never thought about that!

I'm in an 'end of term' mood today as I am on holiday next week

I can be added to the list of people who have tried coconut water - verdict, delicious

Below is Stable Market which is a part of Horse Tunnel Market - dozens of ethnic food stalls ans brick a brac

Hi!

I had to get in before this thing gets to 300 posts...haven't caught up yet.

Yesterday I used *ring*ring as I was in the car and in traffic. Such a useful tool, Mecanix

p.s. I love coconut water - grew up in Florida!

Great to have you jump on!

Welcome to SR and the weekender.

I use that visualization a lot. It's nice and simple.

Check in often and ask if you have any questions or just share what you are up to!

I remember reading another visual for that AV.

You cannot let a lion out of its cage a little bit at a time.

Hmmmm...

'... I visualized a space age hit dog joint...'

So, what, a Pit Bull with Mafia affiliations that wipes out Dog Mobsters using a Laser Gun?-)

Here's the multiple ~25 Ton Blast Doors that protect the Nuclear War Command Center NORAD buried in the Rocky Mountains just South of Denver. These, closed, should suffice to lock up the ole AV, eh? Ya gotta visualize whatever works...

Ah, weekend, I forgot about that. I'm participating in a rummage sale at my children's school on Saturday morning. Sunday, I haven't given much thought to.

That's "hot" dog, not "hit" dog. Sao, I googled Camden Market and horse tunnel market. I never went there. It looks cool but I imagine very crowded.

Well done on a week NeoG. Have fun.

Plans do change. The rummage sale is now postponed until mid September which is a drag for selling summer clothes and toys.

Well, I will be doing yard work if the weather permits. There is always cleaning. I've been planning on this rummage sale for so long I had no other plans. Maybe see my sister in law and niece and nephew. They are leaving the country for a month.

NeoG.... In the beginning I had to have a plan... And a back up plan. Just to stay busy. I follow AVRT so I made a big plan ... Which is to not drink and never change my mind. So everything else was how do I fill all this extra time.

Seemed every day lasted twice as long. Not anymore. I have so many small things I want to do.

Thanks NeoG. Like Happyandfree said, any weekend not lost in a bottle is a good one.

Still a couple of days to make weekend plans. They might not be flying to London, but it'll work out.
