I am thinking it will be a long time before I unpack all the boxes we have piled to the ceiling in our garage from moving back to Florida.
I finally found more of my baking dishes. YAY!
(not that I haven't been baking!) Nothing stops this baker from doing her thing...
I have already baked sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, a vanilla cake and lemon cake. :)
When I realized I couldn't find the proper baking dishes or pans..I took a trip to the store and purchased what I needed for now.
With the mounds of boxes, and most of them not labeled properly (who did that anyways?!) It is just easier to pick up what I needed till I can find my old things again.

We have been so busy! Our daughter started high school. She is absolutely loving it!
She is back with her old friends again, and making lots of new friends too. It is such a joy to see her so happy. We took a trip to the mall yesterday. What a delight to have Mother/Daughter bonding time together. Made my heart smile when she grabbed my hand to hold it as we walked in the mall. I nearly cried!
We went to all the shops she loves, and then we picked up some dinner, just the two of us, what fun!
This was the best decision we have ever made moving back to Florida.
We really should have never left. Sometimes though, you don't realize till you leave how much you will miss something till it is gone. So glad we have it back.
Nothing feels as good as HOME does!

As I was going through some boxes, my DH Patrick is outside doing yard work..he called me outside. He told me the cutest animal was on the bush out there sunning itself. I couldn't wait to see what it was!
I thought..hmmm..."a lizard?, a bird?"..
No....I could NOT believe what he asked me to come outside to see...

it ..


Here is a picture of the animal he called a "cutie" LOL
As long as it stays far away from me, I am ok with it.
I looked, I saw, I snapped a picture, then I ran back inside!

Have a nice day everyone!


  1. Awww! It's a Black Racer :) And most likely a baby too lol It is one of the "better" (if having snakes is a good thing lol) snakes to have. He will keep the dangerous snakes away.
    I guess I am getting use to them after being down here 8 years. We didn't have all these critters up in NY.

    Glad all is going well for you Louise :)

  2. Oh my!!! I dont "do" snakes either!! Faye
