Our family day was spent at Blue Springs swimming and tubing down the waterway. The weather was stinking hot...90+ degrees with high humidity so the 73 degree water was perfect to be in. No...we did NOT see any gators or manatees but we did see some pretty big fish since the water is crystal clear. We then had a nice picnic by the campground. We were supposed to camp overnight but we all agreed that we wanted to sleep in our own beds with the a/c on. Lesson learned...don't camp in Florida summer weather!!!
Guess what??? Linda over at Coastal Charm is having a giveaway...a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTIONS to Coastal Living magazine...I love that magazine!!! I love her blog...she has some wonderful pictures of the Gulf coast...so blue and CLEAN. Let's pray that her beautiful coastal area doesn't get affected by the nasty oil spill. Let's hurry on over and sign up.
As I was cleaning out a closet I came across these pieces of frufru and being the procrastinator that I am I just had to play...I'll show you my foot but never my ankle, haha... I thought the pretty vintage lace( it's actually a bed skirt) would make excellent pantaloons or a frilly skirt. Don't ya think? Ohhh how I wish I could sew..So after playing make believe I ventured outside into the porch..(shouldn't I have been cleaning the closet???)...and noticed some of my orchids blooming. The first mini orchid I call Missy because that is who gave it to me and the second is Lady of the Night..BrassavolaNodosa...very fragrant!!! Of course if the girl uses the camera chances are she is going to blog about it.
I better go..it's almost time for hubby to get home and I SHOULD get something done around here. Hmmmm, I wonder if Dina is home?
Happy 22nd Anniversary to us...Happy Fathers Day to all Dad's and Happy Summer to you all...it's about time I posted and got rid of that ugly snake in your blogs...I've got a new hobby that has kept me busy! I have joined the coupon world and it has kept me from my blog, I do so enjoy finding all those "good" and "free" deals but dang...those coupons pile up. I find myself filing ALL the time...I don't like to file...don't make me file...hahahaha. I had not crafted at all until yesterday! This unfinished lampshade will look pretty once it's completed and married to a lamp that is full of surprises. More too see when I am done.
I woke up early this morning to finish weeding another part of the garden and this sent me screaming and running back inside the house...this is a BIG one! This is the third snake sighting in one week...ohhh my poor heart.
My dear husband actually had the patience to teach this blogger how to use photoshop today. I was am sooooo used to paint shop pro that it got a bit frustrating after awhile but he took deep breaths and I blinked several times to clear my eyes...hahahaha. It's the beginning of a rocky relationship between a blogger and a editing program.
