Week in Photos & Words - 8/22/15

You know the feeling you get when your foot falls asleep and then wakes up? It is like pins and needles. It isn't super painful but it is quite annoying. Nerve pain feels a lot like that some times. It is distracting and kind of consumes your thoughts.

About a week ago we visited a wonderful doctor/specialist in Clearwater. The ride was about an hour and a half each way. Vibrations normally kill me. We had prayed beforehand and guess what...not as bad! I timed my medication perfectly and it was amazing. Some days the medicine doesn't kick in as quickly or doesn't last as long.

We went over this cool bridge. I took way too many photos because I was not in major pain.

See? I love living by the water.

My sister sent me this adorable little aqua mason jar. It is only about 3" tall. Adorable!!! Plus I got a bunch more of her hand made cards. We have been sending each other stuff on flash drives. Anyone else do this? Our internet here is S-L-O-W when it comes to uploading & downloading so this works best.

Bob! This Blue Heron comes every day. He is my little buddy and truly amuses me.

I saw a boat on the canal behind our home and grabbed my phone for a camera. Bob must have been close by and saw me. He came running in to see what was going on.

Our beach photos over the last two weeks...

Everyone was looking at a manatee which everyone then scared away. If people would just keep still, it wouldn't swim further out. Silly people. Look how clear the water was this day! This was the only time this week I went into the water. It was gorgeous.

Someone in the neighborhood was having a home delivered. They parked it along side the road before they made the big turn. The beach is literally right on the other side of that. The hubby & I joked that they were building our house. Right there. (Could you imagine the flood insurance alone? Yikes!)

I always take a photo of the Gulf but this is the view looking the other way.

It is turtle season and Anna Maria Island takes that very seriously. There are turtle counts in every weekly paper. Because the baby turtles could hatch at any minute, the sand needs to be smooth and flat. They take down sand castles, smooth umbrella holes, etc. It is funny to see a John Deere tractor on the beach but it is amazing to walk on freshly combed sand.

My hubby. I adore this guy so much. He can stand the "waves" (ocean lovers would laugh at our tiny waves).

This post took me a few days to write and in the meanwhile...I got my bridesmaids dress! I had actually ordered a completely different dress on ebay. But that seller's cat knocked coffee into the dress and she refunded me. I was pretty bummed since that meant more time online. But then I found this dress. It is the Jenny Yoo Annabelle dress and I love this silly thing.

My hubby has been booking a lot of retirement communities lately. The other day he came home and said he was asked to play at an Oktoberfest. He asked me if I could get him something to wear for Oktoberfest. Haha. I got a little giddy. I love costumes and dressing up for different events. I haven't been able to do that in awhile but it is all still there in my head.

 He really had no idea of what he was asking. Maybe suspenders he thought? But, I'm going for one of these amazing t-shirts. Look how FUN these are? There may also be a hat involved.
