My Camera is BACK!! And Florida is Here!

WOOHOO!! I be able to take numerous pictures for you viewing delight that I will post upon my return! This is my last blog post before my vacation, so check back after next Wednesday! That's right, first trip that is most than just a long weekend. I can't wait!
I pretty much packed and ready to go! I only need to run home on lunch and pack the last few essential items, my shoes & toiletries!!! I love being organized! After work I will pack up the truck, tan one last time, get my Florida pedicure (yes!) and I'm off for Albion! Think of me tomorrow at 8:30a as I board my plane! :o)

I will miss you all and promise to blog upon my return! :o)

P.S. - I am putting ALL of my plants out on the deck before my departure. My babies are now strong enough to survive the cooler nights. Summer is finally here!!!

Spring Flowers!

I love filling my deck up with gorgeous flowers to oogle all summer! On Mother's Day mom helped me with my pots. There is nothing I love doing more with my Mother than gardening! And I think we both agree on that! Doesn't everyone look absolutely fabulous!? She knows how much I love Gerber Daisies, so I have two this year! Woohoo! Seeing as I'm using my phone for a camera, the first picture doesn't do justice to my double blossom! I love each and every one! Thanks so much MOM! :o)

Can you blog without a camera??????

I feel lost. I have no camera, and multiple picture opportunities. Bummer. At least I was able to mail it today to get it fixed. Seven to Ten business days... and Eight days until Florida. CROSS YOUR FINGERS!!

Most of you know the past events of my weekend, but I want to highlight again Grandma & Grandpa's 60th Wedding Anniversary! WOOHOO!
(Thanks for the picture Aunt Molly, I took it from your Facebook! LOL)

Also I did Habitat for Humanity on Saturday. The day ended with a scrapped elbow and broken camera. I have learned that a life in demolition is not for me! I will stick with a desk job thank you!

My upcoming week will be focused on getting ready for Florida! I can't wait!!!

Cozumel Softball!

Its official, Cozumel softball is juggernaut.

(Jug-ger-naut [juhg-er-nawt, -not] – noun: (often lowercase ) any large, overpowering, destructive force or object, as war, a giant battleship, or a powerful softball team!!)

A big 13-0 win last night- the ten run mercy rule ended a little early. However, we continued to play “off the books” and made it to 24-0! A shut out game with 3 strike outs!! WOOHOO!! My first up to bat was a crushing single that dropped into the OUTFIELD! My best hit yet! I touched home plate twice and had an ALMOST pop fly out!! Darn! Our whole team excelled at reaching base with some solid hit. We had three men chalk up SEVEN HOMERUNS! SEVEN!! Six of them belonging to only two individuals!

Stay tuned, team pictures to come!!!

The best thing about Cinco de Mayo... the MARGARITAAAS!!! We went to Chili's yesterday and partied Mexican style! There is nothing I love more than a good, frozen, lime margarita with salt! YUM!

Today is our first softball game!! We are conveniently sponsored by a Cozumel, Grill & Tequila bar!! Which means you can only anticipate margarita drink specials tonight! Woohoo!!


The bar itself is notoriously known for it's outdoor patio bar, where crowds flock at the first sign of nice weather! My facebook picture is on the patio from that one 80 degree Saturday we had a few weeks back. I love it, and I can't wait to go every Wednesday after softball!!

Wish us luck, last year we didn't win one game!!

Puttering & Cleaning Weekend!

Wow what a fantastic weekend! Friday of course was devoted to Happy Hour, but the rest was nothing but puttering and cleaning! Since our hallway is empty due to a paint job, I took the opportunity to sweep up all the stones and salt that has built up. I even got right down on my hands and knees and scrubbed and scrubbed to clean the floors. Now the hallway smells like Mr. Clean, and I love it! :o)

Amongst other cleaning I was able to do some cooking as well. Sunday evening I made two Salmon Fillets with a Teriyaki marinade. After about 5 hours I grilled both, TO PERFECTION, on a cedar plank (which I am loving by the way)! They were to die for and sooooo delicious! As a side dish I steamed some broccoli, cauliflower & carrots in my new veggie steamer! Woohoo!

Sunday morning I went to church and sat through a beautiful service. The Rev. asked if we had a free afternoon to bake cookies for him to drop off to students studying for finals. Since I seem to have acquired the nickname Betty Crocker, it felt only necessary that I live up to the name. Plus I love baking in general so I couldn’t resist! My kitchen turned into a mini assembly line which pumped out over four dozen cookies! Minus the ones I ate, I am able to provide 16 bags of three cookies each to the church. I feel so good about my contribution! And speaking of church participation, I have also signed up to help out with Habitat for Humanity on Saturday! From 9a – 3p we will work on the framing to help build a house! I can’t wait! I will take pictures!

And softball starts this week too! Woohoo!! Cmon Summer!!
