Hope everyone is having a awesome weekend. We got back from our little trip to Clearwater Beach Fl this past Thursday and it has been non-stop since. We had a blast and didn't want to come home. We went swimming, saw Winter and Hope and all their friends at Clearwater Aqurium, also we went on a boat ride to see dolphins and got a little bonus as we got to see manatees also, and of course we spent a day at the beach. I will leave you with pictures to enjoy and I am not looking forward to going back to work tomarrow..
I am still here and kicking. I started working full time last July and have been nonstop since then. I have not forgot all my friends out in cyberspace and look at your blogs often. I have been knitting,crocheting,sewing, and just pick back up my stitching, slowly it am getting back into my element. And now we have a 3 week old baby my daughter now has a 6 year old and a 3 week old so our time is loving on them. My grandson graduated kindergarten and is now a 1st graded..and he really loves to learn. I am going on vacation next week with hubby and grandson down to Clearwater beach can't wait to get in some R&R..well that is a quick update I will leave you some pictures enjoy them and hope you all are having a good week..
In May we also got to make a trip to the beach..it was a beautiful day to enjoy the sun and surf..Also in May I started a new job. I am now a Home Companion. I love it, I do a live-in one, I am in between clients right now still waiting for a permanent position. Well I guess May was a slow month as there was nothing else going on,,so here are some pictures of our beach trip to enjoy.
Yes I am still alive and kicking, sorry for the long absence,,,this will be part 1 of a 3 part post as I have lots of pictures to show...well we will start back in April..it was not a good month for me as I was sick the whole month with first the flue and then a bad chest infection..but with the right drugs I was able to get better. We have been doing a couple of things since then, the first set of pictures are of the Jacksonville Aboretum and it was a beautiful place to walk around,,I have not pick up my cross stitch but I have been knitting and making bracelets pictures to come..the weather here has gotten hot and that means lots of trips to the beach. Yesterday my Grandson and I took off to the beach and had a blast, it was a beautiful day and there was a wedding going to..well here are the pictures of the Aboretum hope you enjoy them..and keep an eye out for #2 post..
Wow time seems to be flying by lately..and the hours of the day seem to be going by a lot quicker. I don't seem to get everything done I want to do which really is a bummer as my mind is going a million miles a hour..I really envy people with just one hobby. Oh well I will get done what I can...I have been doing some sewing and stitching and got some new goodies to show you all. So I will let the pictures do the talking.
I hope this thursday finds you all being creative,,I have been in my craft room sewing new drawstring bags for my Etsy shop,,and I must say I want to keep everyone of them..there is so much cute fabric out there,,I really must win the lottery to buy it all..dont you all agree? Well like the title says I have a finish a small one but a finish is a finish in my book. And I really enjoyed this little gem. And I will be putting the new bags in my shop this week so keep an eye out for them,,you must go and look at the lining fabric,,all my bags are fully lined with cordinating fabric. Well I hope you are all well and we will chat again.
I took a drive there today, it was chilly and overcast but the beach was deserted and beautiful, I really love living in Florida. The driftwood was amazing..hope you all are having a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
Is it wrong for me to wish it was spring already,,I mean I live in Northern Florida and our weather isnt even close to all those under snow right now..but there is something about springtime that I am wishing for..is anyone else like that..so in wish for spring to come I have posted a couple of Etsy items I found that remind me of spring..hope you enjoy them and feel a little spring in your step..
