Hello all! How is your winter going so far? True, it is only a few days since the official start. Does not feel much like winter here. As seen all over social media. Yep. I am right about the slightly … Continue reading

Long time coming
Yes, I have been MIA – Because– well, reasons. None of which are good enough. As we end the Autumn and head into winter, I am changing focus – this coming year I think my theme is going to … Continue reading
One of my favorite months has arrived!
Pumpkin and cloves, cinnamon brooms and Halloween… I do love this month.
Living in Florida has its challenges for one wanting to celebrate each season as it comes through. While I am dying to wear my boots and knitted items and ride a hay ride while watching the glorious leaves – it is still in the 90’s here and we are currently threatened by Matthew. I really hope it avoids us. I am not keen on a Hurricane now.
All said though – I can decorate and turn my air down a bit – try and make the season in the home at least.
Knitting in colors
Hi! How are you doing? I finished some socks. Some, double knit socks. (that’s two socks at a time, one inside the other) Finished them Saturday, need to block them, but pix have been taken! If you are interested, I … Continue reading
Shades of Gold
and red, and orange…. It’s about the time for this Northerner to start living vicariously through the web. The Color Watch. I generally chose Asheville, NC -I visited there a few years ago when my Mom and sister were living … Continue reading
Its coming – the first official day of Autumn. Even in the 90-something degree heat, and the lack of any leaf changes, I feel it coming. I want to make chili, and have just bought a cinnamon whisk for my … Continue reading
A Weekend of Leadership
I just got back from a wonderful weekend! This past weekend was the 2016 GFWC Florida Fall Board Meeting. It was held in Orlando and BOY! was it busy! I attended quite a few workshops on Education Programs, Public Relations, … Continue reading
Hi again! August was crazy! Oppressively hot weather, work issues, my birthday (yay!) Hubby took me a little ‘away’ for my birthday weekend and I got to catch up with my Orlando friends! Now that we are in September, I … Continue reading
Hi all – yes, it has been a while.
Summer hit and has taken me out of my normal process.
I am going to better plan, and expect to have a LOT of photos to share in another week or so.
For now, here’s some of what I have been up to!
I’ve hit the Fresh Market a handful of times – got some fresh veggies and a gift or two.
I also saw this cutie in the window on the way back to my car one time –
I’ve had a girls’ night with my sister
We generally grab dinner then maybe a coffee or a wander around some cute shop before heading home. She still has little guys, so home for bedtime is usually a priority.
I tried a new tea. Chocolate Orange. Not bad, but I had a bit of time blending it to my liking. I think I’ll be sticking to the already blended ones.
Hubby and I visited his Mom for the Fourth of July weekend – it was nice to see her and the family there for a bit. While we were there I was introduced to an ice cream shop called Rodeo Whip – is this not the kitchiest picture ever?!
I went to an event for my new role in the GFWC. It was a weekend of planning at the lovely Gainesville Women’s Club Clubhouse. They were so nice to invite us all to visit and we got to work!
There was some fun too, though….
Met my dear friend for some chat and a snack – since our schedules have been conflicting recently. Good food – not fantastic, but yum.
And this guy was at the door. I laughed too hard.
And I did a little shopping.
Someone is going to start making clothes again!
So far, that’s the highlights – what have you been up to?
Works in Progress
Here I am – continually knitting. no, really -There is at least a sock in progress in my purse all the time – and it is normal at my house to see yarn bits all over – where ever I … Continue reading
