When you have 2 daughters (grown now) and 3 granddaughters, there is a lot of pink in your life. From Disney princesses to Hello Kitty and beyond, life is one big pink plastered party!
Yesterday, which was Sunday, 6/6, D-Day for any WWII enthusiasts, Frank and I took a day trip to St. Simons Island, Georgia. I had been stuck in the house for over a week.
With Florida being a peninsula and water on three sides of it, the St. Johns River that runs north (uphill) and the Hillsborough River running through Tampa Bay, plus Lake Okeechobee, numerous lakes and springs, Florida is the place for water!
I like to color. As a kid, I always wanted the large pack of crayons and never got them. As an adult, I purchased the 120 count and you can tell they are used. There are a lot of greens here that include names like fern and shamrock. Gumby sits in my office and was given to me by a coworker several years ago because I’m so flexible with deadlines.
Tropical Storm Fay of 2008 was an odd storm that zig-zagged her way through the state of Florida. It was the 6th named storm of the season. She was the first storm in recorded history to make landfall in Florida 4 times.
I was reminded of the hellish year 2020 was when I was having hot chocolate in my belligerent 2020 coffee mug flipping off and saying up yours to 2020.
What a challenging year 2020 was in many respects. I began my year with a birding blog on January 5, 2020 called “Today is for the Birds” with great excitement because I had just written my first guest blog with Jacksonville Business Connections through my job titled “Unlock the Bird Lover in You for 2020”. Little did I know that it wouldn’t last.
Even though 2020 has been a crappy year, I want to say I’m thankful for being a live, that me, Frank & none of my immediate family have contracted covid. I’m thankful to all my friends on WP because I would have had a rough 6-8 months after losing my 11 1/2 year job in March.
This is my Bee Kind vinyl decal that I created for my Etsy shop in July. Funny how “Kind” is the theme for October. It was inspired to remind people to be kind to one another through the tribulations of the pandemic and remind everyone that we are all in this together.
September is Ovarian Cancer Month & I’ve been working hard to add new products to the Etsy shop. This month I have added Teal Products to help support Ovarian Cancer Research. For all the Teal Ribbon Products sold this month, I’m donating 50% of my profits to Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.
