And The Winner Is...

With a little help from my random number generator (my daughter) the winner of the 2 Book Giveaway winner is Raven!

Raven, I'll send you an email to get your home address. Enjoy the books! Both are awesome!!1

My lateness in choosing a winner is in part because I'm here:

Playing in the Sand

Going Places

Visiting the Spray Park

Going Swimming.
This pool is actually the pool at the place that my husband's aunt & uncle are staying. We swam here today. I've always wanted to swim somewhere where you could see the ocean from the pool. It was pretty wonderful.

Collecting Shells.
Evey year I collect shells. I love the mother-of-pearl looking ones and every year I imagine I'm going to make myself a shell necklace with silver around them, completely forgetting that I don't actually know how to do that.

Some thoughts on Florida

  • All of the old people in Florida are the color of walnuts. I think this is perhaps because they are no longer worried about getting wrinkled. Or even skin cancer. If they don't have it yet, I'm betting they are safe.
  • If you lose your mother-in-law (or grandma or mother) in Winn-Dixe it's pretty much hopeless because all of the women look the same. You can't even yell Mom or Grandma because they'll all look. Luckily I call my MIL by her first name so I can usually find her eventually.
  • I never really "got" florida until a few years ago. Now I really like it. I like it so much that I'm a little afraid I'm going to be a little old walnut lady during the winters when I'm old.
