DAY 3- Friday

Easy day! Beach beach beach! Stay in your swimsuit ALL DAY!

Sunshine and blue WARM water, temp near 90 degrees! Water temp 82......WONDERFUL!

This is what made Robin and Gary go parasailing!(Bless their crazy hearts!)

I just hung out and watched the birds!
Gary came down to the beach later and he and I swam for about an hour......I love the beach! The water was sooooo warm.....and it was soooo hot that day! Not sure where the other gals were.....but they were pretty white and can't handle the sun too much. I thought I could....HOWEVER....I am the only one who ended up Bright RED.....Oh yes, we had SPF 50 and SPF 100....still unopened! I told you guys I am naturally Blonde, born Blonde, think like a blonde, etc.....DUMB blonde!
The only reason I came off the beach is because the weather was getting ugly... but look what happened!

HMMM....what are they looking at?

Yes...absolutely beautiful! Sunset! The cool thing about the Gulf of Mexico where we stayed, you can see sunrise and sunset from the balcony!

Just talked to Gary and Clare...they are in Bulldog country with their daughter, Gator, to celebrate her 22nd birthday! They said to say "hi" and Gary will be back on-line on Saturday.
Until tomorrow! Sneak Peak.......the Round-up!

Thanks, Sue, my lil basket of Sunshine! This day was Danny's and my 27th Anniversary.....pretty sure he was happy I spent it with loving friends! I spent the whole day on the beach, thinking, busying my mind, about how lucky I am!

Cindy, I don't consider myself a 'religious' person, but one time I was in the grocery store and said hi to the manager (yeah, they all know me there, LOL!) I said, How you doing? and he said, God gave me this day and I'm going to enjoy it. For some reason, that stuck with me, and whenever I am cranky, bored, annoyed or things just aren't going my way, I think of that, and somehow my mood improves.

Hey Cindy, just caught up with your blogs and I'm so happy y'all were able to get together. Looks like a reunion of old friends in your photos! I can almost feel the warmth of that Florida sun and from the hearts of everyone that was there. That Gary is a cutie, and Claire is as gorgeous as he always brags about her being!

Three times....3 times, people thought we were all related! "Family Reunion" they thought! And Jan would explain, with her British accent....NO, we just met this week! Everyone envied us!

About Me
Down here in Central Coast Florida since late Aug. 2012. I still cook and bake and its so good to be around family again!
My favorite things to cook
There is just one of me but I do cook dinner almost every night. I love easy dishes on the nights I really don't feel like cooking. Grandmommy Capps lived in Rocky Mount, NC....Sundays were a holiday! Dinner was at 2pm. Leftovers were snacks later(dark thirty)....she was a great biscuit and piemaker. Being the oldest of 23 grandchildren, I was the BEST dishwasher! Hand wash everything in a washpan! I've never heard of it??? You need one to play as your wash sink,and then you rinse in the kitchen sink.....It was air dry either....someone had to dry ALL the dishes! I love my Sis for that!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have ham, blackeyed peas, collard greens, and corn muffins on New Year's Day for good luck! Peanut blossums are my favorite cookie for Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
"Banana Crumb Muffins" were delicious & gorgeous,looked store-bought!
My cooking tragedies
I have left the neck(in the bag) in the turkey in the past 5 years! I should know better! Always rememember to check BOTH ends of the turkey before you cook it! I'm Blonde...Sheesh!!
