“Fit for Life” Failure

I am a dieting failure.  All it took was Courtney, Addison, Kendall and Debby.  The first three being small people that invaded my space for four days and the last a large tropical storm sitting off of the coast beating us with bands of rain and wind. Housebound, we had no choice but to watch Disney movies and eat a lot of popcorn.

Here’s some pics I took yesterday morning and afternoon.

Maggie wanted to go for a walk and that turned into a swim! Creeps me out to walk through standing water so all shoes were sent through the washer and Maggie’s belly was sprayed down when we got home. Sent Courtney directly to the shower! Next time I’ll have on my boots!


The floating kayak dock is not normally higher than the boat dock. Will be interesting to see how high it can get! We think that the yard must have been underwater during the night because of the mulch on the pavers.
Water over the dock step. Hasn’t been like this  since we were hit by a freak early tropical storm in 2006 and the storm surge flooded the yard.

The water continued to rise and I snapped these photos about 6:30 between rain bands.

The view from our seawall
Maggie likes the water this high. She can easily pull her own ball out of the water when she tosses it in.
Looks like neighbor Jeremy and Roxie are walking on water.
The water from the canal has come up the neighbor’s boat ramp and flooded the yard. The last time we had water in the yard, the plants died since the water is brackish. Looks like I’ll be doing some new landscaping.
The boat is up as high as possible.  Safe for now!

Debby still hasn’t decided quite where she wants to land and now the weather guys are saying she won’t make landfall until Wednesday evening.  I’ll put pictures up of the Homosassa area on Thursday.
