Friday Funday!

Homosassa Christmas Boat Parade
Old Homosassa Christmas Boat Parade 2013

I said I was better last week and I had a relapse.  I think I’m totally better now.  But I’m not real confident.

While I was recuperating, I missed a meeting of the “Old Homosassa Save the Water Tower” group.  And now I’m the historian.  

And what does a historian do? 

Not much happening in Old Homosassa this weekend other than all the regular events at all of our wonderful art galleries, restaurants and bars.  But next Saturday night, the 20th at 5:30 is the Christmas Boat Parade!   And the Holiday Lights at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park start on the 19th.  Both fun events that we never miss! 

I’m headed for Christmas shopping today because I’m not giving any handmade gifts this year.  Sorry to all my friends and relatives that are expecting ANOTHER tote, bag, dishtowel or other non-essential item.  Everything is store-bought.  It’s your lucky year! 

Have a great weekend! 


Hooray for Tuesday

“What day is it?”
It’s today, squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day, said Pooh.
― A.A. Milne –

That’s my new best thought and what I’m going to think every morning when I get up! 

I lost about 36 hours this weekend.  Part of those 36 hours are when I usually do most of my posts for the week.  I had a relapse.  Or some kind of flu on top of the lingering cold germs.  Can there be any worse time to get sick?  Only 15 days until Christmas!  I’ve got projects to finish, cookies to bake, shopping to start! I’ve got company coming–I have to CLEAN!

Friday night we went to a holiday dinner at Glen Lakes.  Hey, I didn’t know I would be close to death by Saturday night–I felt GREAT. (Just like Tony the Tiger) I apologize to all my new BFFs that I may have accidentally and totally unknowingly passed my germs onto them.  So sorry. 

And Saturday morning, again before I knew I was almost on my death bed, we went to the Crystal River Mall. I needed to go to the music store plus there was an arts & crafts show scheduled.  I grabbed my camera–a local story! But that mall is so sad.  Even Rural King looked slow–how many camouflage couches can one use?  

So on that low note, here’s a picture of some bunnies to brighten up your Tuesday.  The name of the piece is Lapins, but I like to think of it as Rapture of the Rabbits.

I’ll be back on Thursday with a sewing project.  

Feeling much better, thank you….

Happy Friday!

It’s Maggie’s Birthday!

Maggie's Birthday
I’m 15–I can get my learner’s permit!

 No Maggie, you can’t reach the pedals and you have no thumbs.  You can’t drive.

I sent one of the Christmas Ornament pillows to my ND family and received these pics back.

Adley the Queen, looking adorable!
It looks like Princess Piper is enjoying the cookies I sent a bit more than the pillow.

Incidentally, my son said that when he does a google search for my website and clicks on images, his kids’ pictures pop up.  Is that a problem? I asked.  He wasn’t sure.

I’m just making them famous. 

And here’s Jes and Andrew at Zoolights.  I somehow forgot to post this.  Never too late!

Our own local version of zoolights start on December 19th at the Homosassa Wildlife Park. It’s really amazing.  If you haven’t been, you need to go!  It’s supposed to be even bigger and better this year.

Have a fun weekend!
