I've got the blues....

and dreaming about my upcoming trip to Florida..

I've a new Memory book for the photos I'll be taking..
there's shells from past visits..
and of course my beloved jar of beach sand..
that jar has held sand  from home since  1975..
It has resided in a place of honor in every house in which I resided since then.
It has crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice..
spent three wonderful years in Spain before returning to America..
and numerous locales since then..
The sand will be replenished again upon my return..
My suitcase is not yet packed..

Sis says light clothing as it is hot there..
as well as very humid..
 my shades..

so  there's flipflops, ..

A couple of blue swimsuits..
a blue and white floral..

but mostly whites..

knee knocker clam diggers..
or whatever they are called these days..
in between..not shorts..not long..

tee stripe, white strip, blue stripe..

solids.. yellow, red , blue..

and yes.. my jammies.. soft, cuddly and warm

because I'm not accustomed to Air Conditioning...
and she keeps her house quite cold!
just hope I don't turn BLUE!

guess I'd best wake up now and start packing!!
join Smiling Sally, our delightful host..
and Mary at Dear Little House for Mosaic Monday
and have a super wonderful day!!
hugs and smiles..


  1. Ohh, a trip to Florida sounds wonderful to me! Especially since here in Michigan, our nights are still dropping down into the low 40's. I hope you have a blast!

  2. I can't wait to meet you while you're here! But if you can wear those two bathing suits, I won't be going to the beach with you! I get depressed trying them on! boo hoo!

  3. Nancy..
    been a long time since I fit into anything like that..
    I do have a Tankini which I have not yet tried this year....
    so it may be just shorts and a T..
    the weather here has been so cold, that yard work has been impossible...
    so there is not even the slightest hint of a tan..just arctic tundra white..
    and I no longer do tanning beds..
    so what if,, i just wear shorts and a tee and we just have a gabfest instead!?
    can't wait to meet you also!
    warmest hugs..

  4. Loui,

    If you get up St. Augustine way, give me a shout. We've got a place downtown in the historic district, and I'd love to meet you if you are out and about. Love meeting other Floridians.

    Happy Blue Monday...


    Sheila :-)

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
