Friday Meanderings

Its been a pretty wonderful week—which is all I expect from living here in Perfect!

Those that follow me on Instagram know that we have been putting a pool in.  Living in Perfect wasn’t quite perfect enough.  But now it totally is! (Well, after all the clean up is finished like new pavers and sprinkler system repair and some sod)

Friday Meanderings

We’ve been here 15 years!  (I know, how can that be!) Our two previous houses had pools which I loved.  The last few years I’ve really been missing that evening swim.  So we finally decided that it was time.  Love it!

My niece Michelle is moving.  She used to post here every week—she’s an excellent chef!  But then she started her own blog and then I fell down the rabbit hole and started my sewing blog…..

We got together last Saturday.

Here’s Michelle’s husband, Jon, and my great friend Yvonne.  Yvonne’s son who grew up with my daughter and son is running for office!  So cool! If you live in Hernando County, vote for Doug Chorvat!

Here’s the rest of us! (Terry was the photographer)

Besties, Donna and Yvonne and me looking really chubby, and my beautiful niece Michelle!

Seriously.  Vote for Dougie.  (He would hate I called him that!) I watched him grow up, graduate from HS with my daughter, go on to college, get a job, marry beautiful Malinda, have two awesome kids. And, of course, he has a great mom and she has great friends.  (And Yvonne was a mermaid!)

Besides all that, he’s totally qualified.  He’s been working in the Clerk of Circuit Court office since he graduated from college and has gone on to get even more certifications.

Okay.  I’ll get off of my voting stump!

My rain lilies started blooming this week.  Ahhhhh, maybe because we’ve had a WHOLE LOT OF RAIN!

Friday Meanderings

We had a really big torrential downpour on Wednesday. Flooded all the streets in Homosassa Springs. ( And in Old Homosassa—but we are used to that! ) Homosassa Springs made it onto all the Tampa newscasts.  Ha!  Blaming all the construction on US 19.  Really?  You think?

As far as I drove was the Homosassa Civic Club.  It was ukulele day!  Not going to miss that!  Nor were any of the other players. I had to wade in but most of them came in from US 19 and floated their vehicles through that mess and made it to our jam.  So impressed!  These people are dedicated to the Homosassa Ukers!

Monday evening the Homosassa Civic Club gave out scholarships to our local students.  They all came to pot luck and the meeting.  Love seeing these young people and their parents! That woman on the right? Not a student!  She’s a teacher at Crystal River and on the scholarship committee.  Jessica MacRae. She did receive the scholarship when she was going to college! She’s also running this summer’s camp at the Old Homosassa Learning Center! Yeah Jessica!

Speaking of summer camp, there’s my favorite Key Club volunteer Tasia.  I think there’s a pretty good chance she’ll get a scholarship next year!

And here’s the Dog of the Week!

Kimber!

Friday Meanderings

She is such a happy dog! And so joyful when I stop by the office.

Do you remember her puppy photo?

I was lucky enough to get to see Kimber every time I went to the Homosassa Special Water District office.  Which is several times a month since I’m on the board and have stuff I gotta do.  And then Kimber’s mom decided that Kimber needed to get weaned away from the constant loving.  Sad face for me and everyone in the office.

It was a very bright spot when she did a visit this week and I happened to stop in. Too cute.  I love all those hugs and that her little tail never stops wagging!

Well, that’s about it but…..

One last meander…..

for at least the past year I’ve had problems with this website.  Slow.  Pictures don’t load.  Issues with some of the apps that I use.  I called my host, GoDaddy.  They assured me that it was all my fault.  Too many apps.  Too many photos.

And I just accepted that.  Although there are a lot of other blogs out there with more pics and apps.  But this is supposed to be easy.  I have several websites and FaceBook pages that I maintain so I like easy.

But I’ve been getting these messages from WordPress (that’s the blogging website software I use) that my PHP is waaaaay out of date.  (Some kind of vaccine, I’m sure.) And I actually had the time to check on that a few days ago.  And it is.  And I have to buy ALL NEW HOSTING from GoDaddy to fix it.  No discounts for being paid up for three years.  Just pay a whole bunch more money.  And they will be happy to take it.

Totally my fault for not keeping myself informed.  Fortunately, the other websites that I do for the community are new enough that there is no problem.  It’s just “Just a Slice of Life in Perfect” and “Designs by KT Green”.  My own personal stuff.

My fault.  But not my fault.  Perhaps GoDaddy could have let me know before I did my last renewal.  But they were happy to take my money and then request more.

Anyhow, I had to rant a little to a friend, Diane Bedard of NatureCoaster.com-the only other person that I know personally that has a blog with WordPress—and she came up with a solution which I can live with.

But this blog and my other personal blog, might be offline while this is all taking place. So…..hang in there.  If the site is down when you check on it, be assured, it will be back.  Better than ever!

Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Kathy
