love thursday: talented

February 28th, 2008 No Comments

Garth and I participated in the Pensacola Ward’s talent show. He played and sang the Billy Joel song, “New York state of mind” and I was in a goofy “fashion show” as a disco diva. Garth is amazingly talented. I know this because at least seven people came up to me that night to tell […]

they’re called camellias

These are blooming like crazy in our backyard. The landlord said that they were planted by the original owner who was a member of the Pensacola Camellia Club in the 1950’s. They are amazing.

rainy day

February 21st, 2008 No Comments

I woke up this morning to the wonderful sound of the persistant Florida rain pounding on our windows. I love that sound. The rain here is magical. I enjoyed it for about 15 seconds before I remembered that I had left my convertable top down last night. I uttered something loudly in my uninteligable morning […]

100 words or less

February 10th, 2008 No Comments

Red Robin rules. One of the good things about being in Florida, nowhere near a Red Robin, is that I am now eligable to participate in their contests since I am not employed by them. Here is my entry into the Fool For Love Contest, where I have 100 words or less to tell the […]
