Just a moment from a day

I’ve been missing taking photos and having somewhere to put them.  So I thought a few weeks ago I’d try uploading a photo a day.  Just happened that I met several dogs and was able to post them.  But then I got sidetracked–again.  Okay.  I accept it.  I’ve got too much stuff going on that takes precedent over this website.

But I will put up special photos when I get a chance.  And I’d like to give a little background on today’s picture.

Terry and I volunteered at a run last Saturday.  The Water Safe Citrus Inaugural 5k/10k/1 mile walk put on by the non-profit Cayla’s Coats. There were about 150 participants.

This is one of the organizations that I always try to support.  Little Cayla drowned in a canal off of the Homosassa River not far from my house when she was 19 months old.  To honor her, initially their church started collecting and donating coats in her name.  Now the non-profit, run by Cayla’s parents who also have full-time jobs, uses money donated to the organization for swimming lessons and buying life jackets and coats for children in Citrus County.

Enough said.

OKAY!  I’m back!

I took an entire month off from posting here.  Sorry.  Needed a break.

Hope you are back, too.

I still have some issues with the design of this blog.  I changed it up a couple months ago because it was so slow.  Pared down to the bare minimum and now need to get it back to pretty. Thought maybe if I waited long enough it would fix itself. Didn’t happen!

So where did I go and what have I been doing and how have I been?

Volunteering at the Old Homosassa Learning Center and helping out at the Festival is kicking my butt.  I swear, I could just sit at my desk all day and just respond to FB messages and questions about the festival. Then there are the websites. And there’s always something at the learning center. Besides working with the kids, we’ve got a new yoga day and trying to get a beginnng ukulele together.

Today I arrived at the learning center after working on the festival grounds with my hair all in disarray, dirt on my old tshirt and shoes, and munching on my lunch which was a small bag of Fritos and a cookie.  Ruth, the coordinator, asked “are you going to do this next year?”

of course!  This is what I do! Love it!

I’m pretty sure that if I hold still too long I’ll remember how old I am and start thinking about my joints and that twinge in my back and wonder if I should really be wearing tights with a blue dress and knee high boots.

keep moving keep doing keep learning

I didn’t post on my DIY blog this week.  I was sewing. A lot. But it was a skirt for the new festival stage.  That’s not very interesting and it ate up all of my sewing time! But it looks really cool. I went to take a picture of it on the new stage and a couple of the volunteers were sitting on the edge of the stage. With. Their. Feet. On. That. Skirt.

Deep breath.

It’s only fabric.

And they are people giving up there time to make this world a better place.

Also didn’t get any time to write on the NatureCoaster.com blog.  Sorry Diane.  I’ll be back!

Anyhow….

It’s Friday!

What’s going on?

The 43RD ANNUAL HOMOSASSA ARTS, CRAFTS, AND SEAFOOD FESTIVAL.

Where will you be this weekend?????

Stop by and say hi!  I’ll have an orange shirt on!

(And I thought I’d put a snap of my orange shirt here but it might be in the washer at this moment!)

Anyhow, here’s your dog of the Day…..
