Nice, hang on to that excitement and marvel at your self every day. Wake up the morning and think about how great you feel. Then come to SR, post about it, and commit to another 24. One day at a time adds up to allot-a days.

Sundays coming to a close, depressing, I sure do enjoy the weekends and the freedome to do what I want or what I need. Seems there barely anytime left over during the work week. Oh well, the weekend will arrive again in short order.

So we visited my Dad for a bit, brought him a coffee and toured his garden. Then dear daughter and I took our Ukuleles to the park and played together. Did a little cleaning, walked the dog, watched a move (well only the first bit then the last hour of hunger games), over all a nice day.

I am a morning person all the way. I like to get up early, sit on the patio with my tea, enjoy the desert sunrise and smells. Most peaceful!

Welcome to Weekenders Lade!

I have today off as I originally intended to be in Le Mans. Instead I am going to visit London Zoo.

I have everything I need to relax and be happy. I do not need an external substance to make me feel better.

End of Day 2. Feeling quite sleepy. Good night / day to every one here. Thanks again for all your support.

Morning, weekenders.

I have another week of vacations.

So I've slept in, having coffee and have no idea what I am going to do.

Barry McGuigan gave us lots of great boxing moments in the early eighties.

"His record was 32 wins and 3 losses, with 28 wins by knockout. In January 2005, McGuigan was elected into the International Boxing Hall of Fame."
