A Little Bit of This…A Little Bit of That!
Good Morning my dear readers…
What a beautiful morning in our part of the world.
The temp is a little cool for Florida, 63 degrees at 11:00 a.m., but it is Winter after all. 😉 And it is overcast…no sun in sight, but tis promised by mid-day.
The Captain and I started the day early, in our Secret Garden…. enjoying our “Quiet Time”!
… and we especially enjoyed the soft cooing of the Turtle Doves in the early morning silence.
…and the fancy-in- flight, Cloudless Sulfur butterflies.
It was such a beautiful sight… as these pale yellow butterflies flitted and fluttered among the large, red Hibiscus flowers.
We decided to go out for breakfast and ended up at one of our favorite cafes …where we chatted with most of the staff and caught up on the news happening in their personal lives.
It is nice when they recognize you and feel comfortable to share. 🙂
(You should know I give them “pet names” also.)
We took “friendly guff” from “Shell”, which the dictionary defines as:
trivial, worthless, or insolent talk or ideas.
…AND teasing from “Kat” over my “regular” choice of pancakes, eggs, onions and pickles! (Another story for a different time)
We also promised to pray for “Windy Sue’s” sister in Michigan, who is going through a tough time.
The Captain had meetings this morning, so I decided to take a short drive down the coast.
What a beautiful sight looking out over the Gulf of Mexico waters, at this time of the day.
I just wanted to take a minute to breathe in and appreciate living in South West Florida.
The Sea Gulls were chattering and dipping into the calm sea. I am truly grateful 🙂
Arriving back home, I checked my email before working on this Post and saw that “SeaHawk Fan” (from Seattle) had sent me a quiz to determine “a true fact about you if you answer 10 unusual questions”
I normally don’t bother with quizzes like this one, but did it for grins and giggles.
According to this quiz…My True Fact is that I am Sincere!
It went on to say ” You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends. You are also unconventional and unimpressed by authority. Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives. You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You’re quite the storyteller!”
Really????? 😉 Not me!
Lets move on please…..
Did you know that in November of 2014, the Coca-Cola company introduced a new product called Coca-Cola Life?
Anyone who knows me, knows that my choice of sodas…should I drink one…is Coke!
So I was excited to try this drink at 60 calories per 8-oz. glass bottle!
It is sweetened with cane sugar and stevia, with no aftertaste.
Of course the best drink is water….but I have to admit, I did like it. 🙂
Finally, I would like to tell you about my fortune cookie.
The Captain and I had Chinese Take-Out a couple weeks ago and I do read the fortune cookie messages even though I don’t base my life on them.
To me, it is just something “fun” to do.
Anyway, I have to confess….this fortune cookie message was right on… and Yes, I believed every word.
Here is the message inside the cookie.
Even the writers of the “fortunes” have a sense of humor!
I love it!
Have a great day, my dear readers! 🙂
