Butterflies: A Happy Moment

I am still here!  The joblessness in a state that has a 12% unemployment rate has just got me a little down and out.  Trying new things to bring up my mood a bit.  Until then, here is a favorite picture I took this weekend.  My man surfing, I was walking the beach, taking pictures and reading my book club’s current wonderful selection “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” on a blanket under a beach umbrella.  Pretty much a perfect day.  The Vitamin D did my mood wonders!

T catching a wave in!

Oh and just because….a closer look….

Closer.....

I feel better now that I posted SOMETHING!  How are you doing?  I hope you haven’t given up on my blog….I will return full on soon I am sure.  I am feeling better, even if I am still looking for that  j.o.b.

Butterflies: Picture Post

A peak at my weekend:

* Little pigtails on Friday (or the day my contract ended short!).  I knew the boredom was short-lived.  The job’s workload was getting thinner and thinner…..and they cut my contract short. Blah!  But better things are to come of it!  I know it!!! 🙂

* So a little drinking commenced to drown my sorrows….I had two lovely men joining me.  Chris is a now former co-worker on the left and he’s waiting for his shoe to drop now too, they let a few of us go and kept the rest, Terrell of course you see a lot in this here blog, my wonderful husband.  They were my drinking buddies along with my sweet friend Emily, she owns the little speakeasy we were drinking at.  The inside of Underbelly  is small and quaint and this was taken in the “backyard” which has a treehouse for the DJ and fairy lights.  It’s SOOO cute!

*Saturday we got up and went to the Riverside Arts Market (known as the RAM), we took our bikes and met up with our friend Heather.  She’s big into bike riding and has been trying to get us to join in.  We brought our bikes and attempted a ride.  We really only got about 8 blocks away.  I can walk til the cows come home but need to work on my bike riding skills…I was poor biking companion and was out of breath and red in the face just a few blocks into the ride.  So we took a break, then rode just a few more blocks to Mossfire Grill and had lunch (and T & H had a beer, my red face had water!).  We then took a visit to her favorite new store Zencog so that she could get the new handlebars she bought put on her bike and then we hung out at her cute little apartment out front working on the bikes…..well, they did, I turned on the music and lounged on her couch with the door opened occasionally stepping on the porch to talk to them.  It was a wonderful day.

*Sunday we drove down to St. Augustine to spend the day with Terrell’s family.  His Aunt and Uncle were in town from Michigan.  We drove them out and walked around the Seafood festival and had fun wandering through the booths of Arts and Crafts, but really we stayed away from the fried foods and came home to grill out a steak and some chicken breasts.   I snapped this photo of Terrell and his Mom.  Posed pictures of them never turn out well.  One of them is always making a strange face, this picture captured their relationship so nicely.

I got a new camera app on the iphone, the Hipstamatic….it gives the photos different washes of vintage looks.  I over did it this weekend and hope you don’t mind that ALL the pictures look like this.

Hope you all had great weekends.  What fun kind of trouble did you get into?

Baubles: Beachy

A rough interpretation of what I wore for a spring time walk on the beach this past Saturday.  We had a nice long walk, lunch and a nap.  Perfect day!  The sandals stayed in the car because when in sand we go barefoot.  That’s how we roll in Florida!
