Vacation is over.....

Good Morning..well we got back from Florida all in one piece.  I have given my husband a new nickname...Rocket man..  He drives too fast for my comfort..speed limit is 70..he thinks he should go 80.  Not...and it is a 10 hour drive from here..and he only stopped 2 times.  I think if we drive on another trip I will have to put my foot down and become a really crabby passenger.  I am too old to sit in one position for that long ..and he wondered why his ankles were swollen when he got home.  Other than the drive..the trip was wonderful.

We found the sunshine and a little warmer weather.  We didn't do a whole lot..but lay sit on the beach and and walk the water to find some shells.   I was always putting sunblock on..asked hubby if he needed it..no he says..he Italian and says he doesn't burn...so who am I to argue...by the third day his feet and calves are sunburnt.  Meanwhile this red headed grandma knew to put sunblock on and is quite comfortable.  I will be honest..I told him the dreaded I told you so.  

Ate some really good food.  I am not a seafood person.  I do not like things I have to shell, things that have eyes or tentacles that need to be removed before eating.  I do fish..tuna, red snapper, grouper..yummy..but they don't take good pics..but my dear sweet sunburnt hubby does...so here are a few pics of his favorite meals..

No..No..I didn't even pick up a hook while on our trip..just enjoyed being together in the sun..on the beach..so there are no pics of finished works..Now that the vacation is over it is time to get back to the real world and get some things done.  I have a couple of doilies I need to crank out for an order..there is already a stack of two that need to be blocked, and believe it or not I think I have to make another thread order already.  For those of you who read this blog that order #20 thread from me, I would like you to let me know the colors you want. This size is more popular than I thought and I really want to have what you want ..I was gonna say need..To us threadies..yeah it is a need..to the rest of the world it is a want.  Any way..may you find all your blessings today and tomorrow..It is good to be back.

Nope not gonna eat it if it's looking at me..nope

appetizers...nope..rather eat some fried mushrooms for me.

Too much work for so little food...this is for hubby..steak for me.


Now love this stuff..twisted tea..yummy

Wow seems you had a great time! What is in the twisted tea? Sounds yummy I am a seafood person but I want all the tails and heads and eyes removed BEFORE they get to my table! Heehee love the crab legs yum!
I'd rally like some 20 thread in the color of buff or tan some that looks tea dyed! You know what I mean.

OH! I just love fresh lobster in the shell! I even suck the shells, lol. Hope you came back refreshed. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Hugs.

You should travel with Rick and me...we stop pretty much every couple of hours to go potty! LOL We've always been that way. I'm with you. I do it some seafood, but I don't want to see it until it's unrecognizable as to what it actually is. No eyes, tails, etc. :p

So glad you had a good time.

I never eat anything that still has it's eyes....OMGosh is that gross!

I love using the #20 thread, I think it works up so much nicer than the #10. :)

Blessings to you always sweet friend.

So glad we could be so hospitable in Florida. You got out just in time, today it is thunderstorms all day long.
Hugs,

Glad you had a great vacation! Sand and surf sounds like a good idea right now. I don't like to have to peel shrimp or crack crab legs either. And don't be staring back at me while I attempt to eat you!

Glad you had a wonder time. Have to say I'm totally with you on the fish thing.
A local fisherman gave us a lot of fresh fish and as soon as I got to the sink and they were all staring back at me, that was me done for.

My mum ended up gutting and cooking them for her and my hubby. I was perfectly happy with my processed fish fingers!! ;)

LOL
