10/18/2012 …only 351 days…

The last fish of the 2012 Alaska Fishing Adventure.  The day was bittersweet… we met some wonderful new folks… our friends Laura & Butch had left for home… the day was gorgeous… the fishing had slowed down… the freezer boxes were  full…. it was our last day of fishing …  we had a 20 hour trip home ahead of us….. it was only 351 days until August 1, 2013!

10/16/2012 I love it!

 A country wedding table…. warm, welcoming, low-key and gorgeous! There seems to be a turning back to home weddings, simple, wild flowers, home-cooked food and having your friends help with the celebration…. and I love it!

10/11/2012 Totally country!

A back road in central Florida.  A very peaceful spot that hasn’t been taken over by strip malls, gas stations and too many vehicles.  Florida has a split personality…. international, exotic, theme parked, over populated, fast paced winter refuge  and then there are dense brushy hammocks of pine and oak,  palmetto prairies, large and small horse farms, rolling acres of peanuts, hay and watermelons and lots of quiet, sleepy communities that are totally country.  I prefer the totally country.

10/9/2012 … kind of mad at myself…

I have lost a dvd with pictures from our 2007 trip to  Wolverine Creek. This bear swam around the boat numerous times and stopped and snacked on lily pads.  I have looked everywhere and I finally gave up and scanned the picture from my album.  Makes me sad, makes me kind of mad at myself that I lost something that I value.  I will continue to look and just like the other day I will probably find two other things that I looked for earlier!
