I fell asleep on the couch while I was reading. This is one of my favorite ways to drift off. Even when I was a child I would read at night to help prepare myself to go to sleep (now I also read early in the mornings to help myself wake up!). This sort of easy slide into sleeep always feels so relaxed and restful to me.




I know I wrote about being on Pinterest last week-ish. I just wanted to say as much as I enjoy it and I am always finding new and interesting things…this website is a serious time suck. Seriously, do not log on unless you have a good bit of time to play around with, otherwise you’ll look up and two or four hours will have gone by while your were pinning and re-pinning.

Vacation Day 5: The End


Vacation was fantastic! Relaxing and fun and and sunny!

Goodbye, Boardwalk!

I saw lots of great wildlife; sea turtles, dolphins, fish, birds, sand crabs, and this odd half crab half spider thing that I’m pretty sure tried to eat me alive.

Goodbye, Little Water Bird!

The water was warm but rough with bigger waves than I’ve seen before (and I grew up going to this string of beaches); we did get in some fantastic boogie boarding though. I called a truce with my mortal enemy the sand for five days and we parted on semi-civil terms.

It was an excellent vacation and I’m sorry to see it end. Tomorrow it’s back to the real world, but there are only 124 days until I go to Mexico/Belize/Honduras for Christmas!

Vacation Day 4


Another relaxing day at the beach. The waves were crazy…like probably six foot swells. We had fun boogie boarding though. It was hard to stay out for too long because of the undercurrent (it was hard to even walk at some points. It was definitely fun though.

Vacation Day 3;


We went to the Daytona Beach Flea Market today. They had lots of interesting things; I found a 13×9 pan for like six dollars. YoungerBrotherGreg also got here this afternoon. We had a great dinner at Dolphin’s View a small counter-service seafood restaurant. The fish was super fresh and they had a fabulous view of the intercoastal waterway. We spent the evening hanging out and watching the dolphins swim by.


I’m on vacation!!! Tonight I’m:
doing laundry
having drinks with friends
loading library books on my nook
finding my sunscreen and my straw hat

Tomorrow, I’m headed to the beach.
