Next day Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River to see the Manatees!

And there weren’t any!

Still had fun!

Off to the Homosassa Wildlife Park!

Finally–A Manatee!

And then they went off with Mom and Dad–to the beach, to the airport to get Riley, and LEGOLAND!

Back in Homosassa today!

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…..

Wagster’s super power is that he can touch his nose with his tongue!

Not much going on. It’s hot!  Right?

School started last week.  Watch out for those school buses!

Work is going on a the Old Homosassa Learning Center.  New doors. Deep cleaning. Interior painting–floors and walls.  The Fall session starts in the shiny interior on September 5th with a new coordinator.

Mural isn’t done yet on the Learning Center because it was just too hot for Cindy to work on it in August then she went back to work. She’s an art teacher in Mount Dora.  But she’ll be back since she lives in Old Homosassa on the weekends.

Scallop season continues until September 24th.

Get out of the heat and get in shape at one of the yoga classes held in the Homosassa Civic Center.  Tiffany Beck is now leading four classes a week.  Monday evening from 5:30- 6:30 is a very slow relaxation and stretching yoga.  Tuesday from 5:30 – 6:30, Wednesday 10 am – 11 am and Saturday 10 am – 11 am are regular yoga classes.  All classes are $5.00 with a 50% discount for veterans.  The classes are part of the adult program at the Old Homosassa Learning Center and will move over to that building as soon as the interior renovations are complete.

Okay.  That’s about it.

Have a good weekend and keep cool!
