My everyday life is simple, small, and full of happiness. :) I hope today’s pictures convey these feelings.
Living in Florida is like being on vacation 365 days a year…seriously!!! Much of my everyday life is spent outdoors, with the ocean a preferred destination:
In fact, one beach day last fall, I got wildly creative ;), carved my boys’ nickname in the eroded sandwall and texted this digital “postcard”
Skipppppyyyyyyy!!! Miss you both!!! :)
Like I said…..my everyday life is small!
I also enjoy spending time under the oaks at Riverside Park, Vero Beach’s premiere location for festivals, picnics, or dolphin watching on the Indian River
But sometimes, the weather won’t cooperate, or I prefer to stay inside. When I’m home, scenes like this next one are typical of my everyday life:
From the airy light in the parlor, to Clarisse on the back of the couch, everything about this picture makes me feel good!
Of course, cooking and eating are part of everyday life, too. Occasionally, Maggie and I make dinners worthy of a photo:
Yum!!! Crab Quiche, my mother’s recipe, along with Maggie’s salad of spinach and peppers from our garden! (I could lie and say we made the bread too, but that’s all Publix! ;)) This recipe is SO simple.
‘Twas quite the laugh preparing this meal!!! Never underestimate how LONNNGGGG it takes to dice onions with 1 dull paring knife and steak knives from the Dollar Tree!We chopped and chopped and diced and chopped some more, adding bunch after bunch to a measuring cup that refused to fill up!! Around 730pm my mother called to see how it turned out, and I was like, “Call back at midnight, we’re still chopping these damn onions!” “What??!!” she asked incredulously,”you just buy them pre-diced at Publix…You didn’t know?!”
But as you see in the picture (taken at 1012pm!!! ha!!) the finished product was wonderful and we had a lot of silliness over it!
My thinking is this Everyday life can be boring and crappy or enjoyable and fun…it’s all in the attitude you bring to it!
Until next time……
