My new cigar box project is making little tables. I tried Elmer’s glue for the first one, and it came apart. I asked Rachel (our artist friend) what is the best glue to use, and she said ES6000. I remembered we had a tube and when I checked, I discovered that it’s still soft and flowing. Yay!
Weird find of the day was a mannequin torso. This is at Aripeka Sandhills Preserve. We went there last week for a night walk and were appalled at the amount of garbage, so when our friend Theresa said she wanted to go pick up trash, we knew where we should go.
Congratulations to the happy couple and best wishes for everlasting joy & contentment.
We’ve started Florida Adventurer, to chronicle our experiences.
What I saw of them, anyway… the theater has super comfy recliners and it was a late movie, so I missed about half of it. Oops!
Our friend Rachel wanted to learn how to make them, so we got together and made three batches. That’sa lotsa cookies. Aunt Susie appreciated the ones we brought to her.
It gives me a little lift when I wash my hands first thing in the morning.
I love foggy mornings and it’s still there as I write this.
They are one of the most common things we see on our night walks, and it’s been fun sharing the knowledge with the people subscribed to our page on Facebook.
We led 75 people through the park, one batch of 50 and 25 in another. It was fun, challenging, and rewarding. People enjoyed it and we saw neat things: millipedes, scorpions, a toad, a moth, and lots of spiders.
And, the rocks I painted went over really well. A few people were fooled and we had to tell them they were rocks!
I am working on a batch of fluorescent rocks to put out for our next night walk, plus a few others. I forgot how much fun it is to create the rocks.
After our kayak trip, we went to a place called Brooklyn’s Backyard. Not only were the s’mores delicious, we then had fun burning the skewers.
Our friends have a visitor – their German exchange student from last year – and we took him down the river. We saw nine alligators, lots of anhinga and cormorants, turtles, and fish.
We participated in the Great American Cleanup. We started at Crews Lake Park, cleaning up after a big event they had. And then we went out on the street that goes by the park and picked up more. There was stuff we were seeing every day, and now we don’t have to look at it. Yay!
We’re doing another night walk and currently it says 30 people are going and 420 are interested!
I have discovered that I only really like the ones he makes. I’m always disappointed when I get one at a restaurant. Same with steak. His are the best!!
The other day, I got a puffy envelope out the mailbox, and halfway back to the house, I felt something on my hand and when I looked down, I saw something black, so I flicked my arm! Then I realized it was the anole that has been living in the mailbox. I felt so bad… I searched around to see if I could find it and spent two days hoping it could find its way back. And it did. Well, at least I think and hope it’s the same one.
Those little suckers can be nasty! They’re kind of like the goat heads we had in Tucson, but with more spines. And because I like to walk around in the yard barefoot, I sometimes step on them. And if the tip breaks off, it’s all itchy and hurty until it comes out.
