Friday Meanderings

I’m back!

It’s Friday!

So what’s going on?

My daughter and son-in-law’s fourth anniversary yesterday!

These two were meant for each other!

Our friend Yvonne lent that dress to Jessica.  It’s still in my closet.  It’s quite the antique. The fabric is very very very fragile.

And Beautiful.  Like my daughter and her husband.

Their wedding was in our back yard and we have another one being held there in May.Our friends and neighbors’ daughter Anastasia and her fiance Josh.  So excited that they can start their new life right here.  Marriages in our backyard last forever!

And here’s a beautiful walking iris that plant-sharing neighbor gave me.

I spent many hours in the Learning Center this week plus lots of time updating websites and emailing 10,000 people.  And I have so much more to do.

But Terry was in a fishing tournament with his fishing club this week.  And asked me to be his guest.  And you know I said YES!

I’m not much of a fisher person.  The only fish I catch are those that decide to commit suicide by impaling themselves on the hook.  But still, I cast, reel in, cast, reel in.

We saw two sting rays, a million sea turtles, and over a dozen dolphins.

Cast, reel in, cast, reel in.

Successful Fishing Trip!

Terry caught a keeper!
We think this was a cobia. Not sure. Too small anyhow. We threw it back.

Okay.  So what’s going on this weekend?

This is where we are headed!

Bluegrass Festival at Fort Cooper on Saturday.   Checking out the talent for the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival.

Mainsail Art Festival in St. Pete on Saturday and Sunday.  One of the TOP art festivals in the country.  Since Terry and I are totally wanting to move the Homosassa Arts, Crafts, and Seafood Festival to the upper niche, we will be there on Sunday.  (Plus our local artist and Learning Center supporter Kevin Jenkins is exhibiting his works.)

And MOST IMPORTANT is the kick-off party for the AMAZING RACE.  A fund-raiser for the Old Homosassa Heritage Council.  Stop by the Village Toyota Parts department to sign up on Sunday at 4 pm.  For $25 you get a t-shirt or poster and entered into the race.  Clues will be given every week in the Citrus Chronicle, on the local stations, and the OHHC Facebook page.

Whatever you do, get outside!  It will be another beautiful weekend!

Have a great one!

  1. Hey Michelle! Well, there was supposed to be a photo here and a mention about the deck repair. But it looks like I forgot to add it! Whoops! We actually have someone else doing the repair because it’s just too big of a job. And it may get bigger as we see how bad the frame is. The house was built in 1990 so that deck is 27 years old! I’m going to try to post a photo on Instagram every day so just keep following me!

  5. Thanks for hosting our wedding in the backyard! And thanks to Yvonne for the dress. I feel like you should be able to wear wedding dresses more than once! Maybe I’ll wear it around Homosassa the next time I am down. 🙂
