Guess what I've got on my mind...

Can't help dreaming about sitting on the deck of a lovely beach house at St. George Island, Florida. When my husband was alive (and we were together) we used to rent a house every year with friends and family all sharing the cost. We would end up right on the beach in a 4 bedroom house for about $400.00 per couple for a week. Things are too tight for everyone this year but I'm trying to work my magic on a smaller beach house and propositioning my kids to maybe go later in the summer. St. George Island is in the Florida panhandle and is a lovely place to just relax and enjoy the dolphins and the beach. I also love Sanibel Island, which is in South Florida near Ft. Meyers and Naples. It just got to be too long of a road trip and so I haven't been for several years now. Anyway, I'm an Aquarius and feel like I'm part of the sea. I guess lot's of folks feel that way.

We've had great weather the last few days and that has spawned some Spring fever I guess. I've been able to get outside and enjoy my back yard table and the wonderful fresh air. The g/kids hardly hit the front door when they want to get outside and I can't blame them.

BTW, I get my 'rat' hair cut this Friday. I can't I hope everyone is having a great week and able to get outside some. Hugs to all...


  1. renting a house on the beach sounds so fun. I bet you have lots of memories. I hope the kids take you up on your offer. I need to get my hair cut too.

    Now is a great time to negotiate prices and perks on vacationing. With the economy like it is, you might just get a bargain. Check out the NY Times travel section for tips or you can go to and
