Granny’s Closet, Jodi, Judy W, Desertsky & Garnet Rose, I *did* go out for a wonderful walk yesterday, after everyone’s urging and it was GREAT! I walked on the beach in the salt water, listening to it splash onshore (bundled up in my parka and ExtraTuffs!) Still, the sun was out and it was great!
Rannyjean, Becky and Karen in MN, and Karol, you gals really made me laugh and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! 🙂
Snoodles, you are a genius! I have a pic of a warm looking ocean, but never thought of looking at webcams! And I have one!
Tessahjake, I have been converting friends into bloggers (abracadabra, you are now a *blogger*) and that’s been really fun. Good idea to get in touch with old friends.
Jackie – -I used to live in Indian Rocks Beach as a kid – -Gulf coast, south of Tampa/St.Pete. I’ve often thought of going back to see all the changes, but then again, I like remembering just how it was when I was growing up there 🙂
Here’s a view of the harbor, I walked to about where the coal terminal starts (the blue thing in the center of the photo) and here’s a coal tanker coming in as I was out for my walk.
Okay quilters: Rannyjean was the first name pulled, so she gets first choice of the bundles of fabric in the photo below and Jodi was the second name so she gets the bundle that Rannyjean doesn’t pick! Karen in MN, you made me laugh the hardest (and it was your wading pool in the living room that made me think of putting sun tan lotion on just to smell it!). I need your addresses all three and I’m going to find something to put a smile on Karen in MN’s face!
I feel so cheered up by everything that you all said. I did some blog hopping and found a few blogs where the gals are keeping track of their exercise goals and weight loss and that was a great motivator too! I am really happy that even though I am stuck in the back of beyond physically, I get to visit with wonderful people from all over the world. Thank you!
