Friday Meanderings

Happy Friday! It’s been a weird week weather-wise. A/C and shorts one day and then Heat and coats the next. But the sun is shining so all is good!

Big announcement. The Old Homosassa Heritage Council is having their fund raiser for the year. February 16th. Toga for the Tower! If you want to attend, you need to get your tickets NOW! Last year our big party was the Cocktail Hour for the Tower and the tickets sold out way before the event and there were a lot of disappointed people. We can only fit 75 people in the Homosassa Civic Center so that’s how many tickets we are selling!

The Old Homosassa Heritage Council has returned to a full schedule after the brief holiday hiatus. (too brief) Yoga, body sculpting, ukulele, sewing, Zumba and next week there will be an additional Zumba class added on Wednesday evening at 6:15. Somebody else asked about having belly dancing classes. Bring it on!

For the kids we have ukulele, guitar, and Girl Scouts. Next week piano lessons start for three lucky young people! All of these lessons are free for the kids! Someone asked if I would be interested in adding free lessons in clarinet in the future. Oh yes! That’s still tentative. Might be something for the fall session.

And another BIG announcement. Captain William Toney is holding a free fishing seminar in February!!!!! This time it will be in the Homosassa Civic Center since the last session he gave was to an overpacked house at the learning center. Rumor is that they will be filming it for his TV show!!!!!!! I’ll announce the date as soon as I’m sure that I’ve got the right one!

Okay. Enough excitement for this Friday!

I’ve got photos for my 2019 Pic of the Day. I actually took at least one everyday.

Old Mill on a Friday night!

Not real crazy about this next one. I was working on a song for my banjo and decided that I should try it on every instrument I had. Of course, that’s different sheet music for each one. Snapped this photo of the cluttered mess! It’s not usually like this….really….

My last plate of pasta until I lose 10 pounds. You can do it Kathy!

I went down to the Water Tower to snap a better photo for the “Toga for the Tower” flyer. So many vultures!

Some additional lights for our screen room. A former neighbor once said that our back yard looked like an airport runway. Yes. Success! Peace, baby.

Did not expect this in the mail. Sent it in a few weeks before the Government shutdown but didn’t think it would actually be processed. Pleasant surprise. Oh, the places I will go!

My crazy azaleas are blooming early. So pretty!

And one last pic. I didn’t take this one. But it’s too cute to not share. My North Dakota granddaughter made this Lego figure and said it was Grandma Green! So realistic. Except for the brown pants. Piper, I never wear brown pants. Once upon a time my mother was playing with my kids when they were wee. Crawling around on the floor in her usual brown pants. (back then women didn’t wear jeans) Jessica said, “Grandma, you look just like Beauty!” Beauty was our horse! I never wear brown pants. I never want to be mistaken for the horse.


Have a great weekend!

Happy 2019!

We are only 4 days in and already crazy busy. Thought I would get caught up around the house since the learning center was closed for two weeks. Didn’t happen but did have a lot of fun!

I have a few goals for the year which are incredibly boring so I’m not going to bother listing all of them.


I am going to really really really try to get back into taking a pic a day. I did that a few years ago and posted them and I can look back at those snaps and say, oh that’s what I was up to on such and such a day. Kind of a journal but with pictures. But I already missed taking a picture yesterday so I’ve already missed that goal!

I probably won’t post them every day. It will be more like a couple times a week, or maybe just on Friday.

Here’s some snaps from the the past week….

This is daughter Jes, son-in-law Andrew, and step-son Darin.

Andrew, Jes, Darin

Went to Tim’s 70th birthday party on the 1st. Here’s my first performance. We sang “Happy Birthday” to the birthday boy.


And since I didn’t actually take that photo, here’s one I did take! Mark on the harp with the band!

Grandkids came to visit. First time the girls were here since we put the pool in and they couldn’t resist! While the weather is unusually warm, that water was only 68 degrees! Andrew took a swim every day while he was here but he’s originally from Connecticut and claimed that the water was great. Those girls live in Wesley Chapel. Brrrrr….

Addison and Kendall

And my first quilt for 2019!


Hope your new year is going great, too!

I missed posting last week. I’ve been pretty good about at least posting on Friday. But I have a good excuse this time!

A tree fell down.

And pulled the electrical box right off the side of the house. Along with all of the electric and cable wires.

This is where we hide all the ugly utilities. And that pipe laying down. That leads to the electrical box that is smashed.


And it wasn’t our tree. It’s from the neighbor’s yard. But I haven’t seen them there in months and months and months. Think they might have abandoned the place!

But anyhow. We had so much rain last week. The sun shines and then suddenly–it’s raining again!

But at some point, there was a rainbow!

And there were birds!

All is good. I had to read a real book while I was waiting for all the people that need to bring energy back into my life: Thomas Electric, Bryant Tree Service, WREC, and Spectrum. Gotta say, they were right on time. We were back up and running everything within 24 hours. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Oh. And the fire department. They were there within minutes because the lines were across the road! Amazing!

And besides that, we had a wonderful Christmas. No family this year but we have so many great friends here in Old Homosassa every moment was full!

But having said that, we do have at least three of our kids coming in this weekend. Yay!

And what are you doing this weekend? Whatever it is, have a GREAT time!
