I took this picture last year at Fort Myers Beach.

It was a great fairly cool day in Florida that day.


I didn’t take this picture of Mount Saint Helens, but I have one similar that I did take in 1997 when my eldest daughter took us to see it, many years ago.


I will be planting dozens of tulips this fall in honor of my Mother who loved tulips.

And I did take this picture……..


I love pretty pictures and would love to travel around the world taking beautiful pictures.

Ha!  Another pipe dream!

wow, ugh and winter…..   Leave a comment

I am sweating so much my head is soaked with sweat and it is dripping on to my shoulders and going in my eyes.

Man it is humid today.
Hate this crap.
Literally hate it.

I want seventy-five all year around.
I like winter a hell of a lot better than this hot and  humid weather we are having.

Good thing we are in for a cool down starting tomorrow for a few days.

I am sick of sweating.



at least in winter you can put on layers and get warmer.

nothing helps ease this crappy weather unless you are in air conditioning.

If money were no object, meaning you had endless amounts of money at your fingertips, what would you do with it?

What are your dreams?

If I had the money I would take flying lessons and learn to fly a small plane.

If I had the money I would hire someone to teach me to play the  piano

If I had the money I would hire a personal trainer to get me into better physical shape

Of course I would help my siblings and my children with their bills and buying them a dream home……

I would own a house in the mountains

I would own a house on the beach

I would travel everywhere

I would give to find a cure for cancer

I would build a safe haven for unwanted children…….

the list probably could go on and on.


I will say it again, good thing dreaming is free…….

daytona beachcropped-dsci44341.jpg


so I asked my husband where he would like to go for his birthday

seeing as my youngest sister and I are not going to see my sister Kathy in Fort Myers and I already have the time off of work I thought I would let him pick where we would vacation to.

and guess where he picked?
Yep you guessed it, Daytona Beach Florida.


And while I don’t mind going there, because I haven’t been to the ocean yet this year, Next year we are going to have to head West again.

Wyoming, or Montana or Oregon…..

Somewhere we haven’t been.

And yes I have driven through parts of Montana and Wyoming, I haven’t actually visited either state except to go to Yellowstone National Park, and that was a rush visit.

my new puppy

In three days I will be getting a chocolate lab pup.

I am a bit nervous because I hope it isn’t going to be a major struggle to get this little guy adjusted to our lives.

mainly the potty training has me worried.

but I did it with Max so I know I can with this little man too.

Aaron my grandson named him Toby.

It wouldn’t be the name I would have picked but I told Aaron he could name him, so Toby it is.
