This, that and the other thing

I’m never quite sure if my blog post title should all be capitalized or just the first word? This is a grammar quandary for me.

1) The Coach and I had a nice, quiet July 4th. We had lunch at the boat marina, checked out some really BIG boats and spotted the resident Bald Eagle. Then we spent the evening listening to the neighborhood send 12 million bottle rockets into the sky. But hey, they started 4 days prior, so why slow down now? Do you know how terrifying fireworks are to pets? Very. Also, I learned they’re also frightening for butterflies…..I know. I just can’t stop it with the butterflies.

2) Our girls went on their big trip to Seattle and Portland; this was a gift from us for Christmas, but they just found the time to go.
While they were gone, we took care of our granddog Max. Max hasn’t heard of personal space.
The girls are home now and they loved their trip. They were more impressed with Seattle over Portland; said Seattle just have a really good vibe. I think I know where I need to go next….I love a place with a good vibe.

3) We had all the trees on our property trimmed this past week; hurricane prep. We have about 49 palm trees and 8-9 oak trees. Some of our oak trees have NEVER been trimmed or thinned out.
This is our favorite tree and now that it’s thinned out, I have MORE room for orchids in there. 🙂

It looked as though hurricane Irma made a reappearance until all was cleaned up.

Happy hump day!

This, That and The Other Thing

1) This

A few days after Thanksgiving I finally picked up the wishbone from the countertop and handed one side to the Coach.
Me: Lets do this.
Him: ohhhh, I don’t like this because it means one of us will lose.
Me: It’s ok, one of us will be a winner too.

We pulled it apart and we both lost.
Go figure.
We’re both losers. 🙂

2) That
I’m finally back in Monarch butterfly business.
Hurricane Erma did a number on my garden and the butterflies that inhabited our yard.

Slowly but surely, my numbers are growing and some mornings I feel like Snow white…..monarchs flying all around me in the garden. It’s a beautiful thing.

3) The Other Thing

Do you ever have a moment where you forget to spell the simplest of words? I’ve written Believe many many times…..but after a full day of Christmas decorating, it was beyond my comprehension.

I had a big giggle at my mistake and called it quits for that day.

I hope you are getting though this holiday season with all your wits about you….but if you’re like me, you’re completely out of wits and you get by on charm. 🙂
