Hello from Florida! We've been living here on Anna Maria Island for the last four months. Four months of living on this gorgeous island.
We have had some pretty serious rain lately and we haven't gotten to the beach as much. We went today and it was nice to see the Gulf again. It was too wavy for me to go past my calves but I so enjoy sitting with my ankles in the water (who wouldn't?). Plus, I have some great books from the library. Going to the library is one of my favorite parts of the week. There are just so many choices.
Some photos from today & a few days ago when we ventured to the beach. That day we left because the wind was strong and it was making my leg move while I sat. And that was painful. Seriously, the wind hurt me.
|This man cracks me up. Love him!|
It doesn't look very wavy but I haven't been able to enter the water in at least a week and a half. I keep telling the Gulf to flatten itself but it hasn't worked yet.
Some random photos taken from my week of trying to rest my body (this is so boring some times).
|The electric stimulus which actually helps the pain and I use all the time.|
|My sister sent me a movie on a USB. Fancy!|
|I take this blanket almost everywhere with me.|
|See? Everywhere. Today it was almost 90 degrees and I was sitting outside with a blanket. Do you see "Bob" coming through the screen door? Do you see his water bowl? He makes me smile.|
|There is this giant flowering tree that drops flowers constantly.|
|Yup, sitting in a sweatshirt in Florida. In August. I just don't sweat. Thanks RSD.|
|This is me being "real". The pain was bad you guys. I sat in one position too long.|
|And back to smiling. I'm sure my medicine was working at this time :)|
|The hubby picked this up for $10 the other day. I love organization! I love that Facebook has yard sale groups.|
|The very important news from the island paper.|
|I love seeing all the birds that frequent our back porch.|
So the hubby & I decided that it would be better to spend some more money to really clean up the basement and hopefully fix the problem.
See all the insulation? It came out of our basement ceiling. They are also doing something fancy with the drains (don't ask me what...something with pipe) and painting the basement with Dry-Lok.
Thanks for reading!
