Okay, I’m a little too old to be called a girl, after all…I’m retired!!!
We are having a good time in Florida getting lots of exercise, shopping, exploring, shopping, relaxing and so on. After visiting Gasparilla Island we spent a day on Manasota Key and checked out Stump Pass Beach State Park. Although it was a nice day and we enjoyed ourselves, we didn’t like it as much as Gasparilla.
We spent an afternoon on Venice Beach, which we visited a few years ago and really enjoyed.
If you want to go shelling, you don’t have to go very far.
These are our two new, quite expensive, beach chairs. I think they should have come with their own cabana boy serving drinks…
For Christmas Bill got me the “bright light” that attaches to my sewing machine. He ordered it from Patsy Thompson. She has a great site which I suggest you check out here. It is full of beautiful photos for inspiration and a wonderful on-line store. I had a little trouble with the light but she provided superior customer service and had me up and running in a flash. If you don’t have one of the lights, I highly suggest you get one as quickly as possible. The light it provides is outstanding!
I picked up this new fabric at Wal-mart today. It isn’t the best quality but they are the perfect colors for some Valentine gift ideas that are running around in my head. Hopefully I can get them out of my head and into the mail for Valentine’s Day. Fat Chance! I don’t work that fast but I’m gonna try; they are little gifts and shouldn’t take very long.
Lastly, we are volunteering at the local animal shelter; the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte County. We love dogs; however, our current lifestyle does not allow for one so we get our “fix” at the shelter. Ever since my daughter adopted a pit bull puppy, we have fallen in love with the breed and do all that we can to promote the breed. They are our favorite and one day we will have one of our own.
How could you not love that face? If you are thinking of a new pet for your home, why not make a visit to your neighborhood animal shelter? They are doing a world of good.
Thanks for stopping by…
