Lazy Sunday


Lola loves to jump around in the water, and she has started taking Toby's ball from him in a game of keep away. Then she decides to take the ball into the water, which isn't a good idea since she can't pick up the ball in the water, she only makes it sink more or she pushes it farther out in the water where I can't get it so then I have to send Toby out in the water to get the ball.

These are chuck-it balls, which aren't cheap, so I want the damn things back.

Look at her dirty face! This is what she's really like:

Don't let that cute little face fool you, she can be a terror.

Lounging around today, working on my knitting project, which, unfortunately, I know I'm not going to complete in time. That bugs me. I have been trying so hard for so long to finish what I start (and in a timely manner) that this is a step back. At least I tried, right?

Hey, has anyone seen these or tried them?

These are gorgeous and I would love to get one but they are SOOOOO very expensive I don't want to have serious buyers remorse. Does anyone have any feedback on these? I'd love to hear it.

I hope your day is restful.
Enjoy your day.

Almost closing time

This has been a whirlwind week, with cleaning and purging and donating and updating and just plain throwing out, I get totally sidetracked and forget about other projects that I care about and have time invested in, like this writing. 

But these distractions in life are temporary and life returns to its new normal, whatever that is at the moment. 

I’ll tell you what, all this cleaning and purging and donating has been so awesome  for me. I’ve learned what I need and what I don’t, what I can live with and without, how to do with less, and how to say goodbye to those things that no longer serve me, even if there is a sentimental attachment

There are many, many things I will miss about Orlando; seeing a momma swan and her ducklings every spring will be one of them, and there really is so much more to Orlando than the theme parks.

It’s been a wild ride, and an interesting one, and one I will never forget. 

Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.

What’s up Saturday 


Thinking about all these beautiful things today and how lucky I am to have them in my life.
All is well here, keeping very busy, and some personal life changes happening. It’s all good stuff though.
I hope you are well.

Decompression time

So you know how you feel after spending a lot of time with family and you are away from home and not in your natural environment? 

Yes, that. 

So it’s decompression time for me; going back to my calm and serene home and my familiar surroundings to regroup. I’m sure there are a lot of people that can understand this, and since I’ve learned more about sensitive personalities and introversion it makes more sense to me. 

I used to just think that I was an oddity, a weirdo, and most people didn’t understand what I meant and was going through. After talking with others, I find I am not so odd.

I love my family very much and so totally enjoy spending time with them, but even after spending time with them I need my quiet time to recharge. If I don’t recharge I end up being extra tired, then I get cranky and then I’m really no fun to be around, even for me.

So today is my rest and recharge day so I can face tomorrow. 

Which means back to work.

I hope you had a restful holiday.

What the U.S. would look like if all the earth’s ice melted

This is scary, and fascinating. Good thing I’ll be moving from Florida soon.
