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!

It’s HOT!  And HUMID!

Florida in July.

What else should we expect?  Right?

I tried to escape from all that temperature by heading to Spedwell, Tennessee.

With my besties.

Here’s a pic of us at McCloud Mountain Restaurant.

From the left, me, Yvonne, Sherri, Barb, and Donna

We all worked at the same company.  All at different locations.  And in some cases different times.

I was at the Moore McCormick office in Brooksville. 1984????? I was the marketing secretary.  Donna, Yvonne and Sherri were was at the Florida Mining & Materials cement plant in Brooksville which was owned by Moore McCormick. Barb was at a cement plant in Ohio with SouthDown which eventually bought Moore McCormick.I moved to the Tampa office when that happened.

Somehow, we all got to be besties over the years.  Even though I left SouthDown back in 1990.

And it was STILL HOT but not quite as humid in Speedwell, TN.  But they have a boat on a lake with no alligators!  So we made the best of it!

And I made a new friend while I was there.

Sadie!

I’m back!

Today is the last day of the Summer Program at the Old Homosassa Learning Center.  The Fall Program starts on September 5th.  We have a new coordinator on board to run the program.  The learning center will be open from 3:30 – 5:30 everyday that the Citrus County school system is open.  There will be a different theme each day.  Our yoga teacher will be teaching yoga to the kids for half an hour on Tuesdays.  Our sewing coach will be helping the kids make costumes for Halloween on Thursdays.  And the guitar classes will continue on Wednesday.

First we have to do a MAJOR cleanup of the building.  Smells like sweaty kids!

Speaking of sweaty, Terry and I are doing the parking on Saturday for the scallopers.  Money goes to the learning center. We need two new doors, a refrigerator, and a projector. We’ll be working a lot of Saturdays!

Not much else going on around here.  Because it’s HOT!  Oh yeah, I think I already mentioned that!

Have a great weekend!

It’s hot!

And it’s DRY!

My yard is getting brown and crunchy. Which would normally be okay because it will come back when the summer rains start. Or if the rains don’t come–no big deal.

But I’ve got a wedding scheduled on the 27th. On that brown and crunchy grass!

I do water the garden beds and they are beautiful. Hopefully the bride and her guests will just see all of those beautiful flowers! Her colors are pink and green and I’ve tried to accommodate!

So what else is going on?

We put a Sign up at the Learning Center. Took several of the leading citizens of the community. Handling tools and standing on desks.sign

Look at those HAPPY FACES!

OKAY.  These are the people that are saving our river and our community.

Pretty cool that Terry and I are part of it.

Right?

Then we all went to Old Mill to celebrate!

Woo-Hoo.

Okay.  Just a couple more snaps.

Vivian, my little sewist on Wednesday, was supposed to make her mom coasters for Mother’s Day.

She made two.

And gave me one.

And one more.

In our Sew Cool Workshop on Thursdays, Connie almost finished her second boho bag.

Connie is a natural model

Sew Cool.

Right?

I LOVE THAT SNAP OF CONNIE!

Don’t forget about the FISHING HOMOSASSA 101 Seminar at the Old Homosassa Learning Center on Thursday, May 18 at 7 pm.  Could be standing room only!

Have a great weekend.  I will.  Daughter Jes and her husband Andrew are coming in!  Yippee!
