Busy Day

Thursday, April 28, 2011

We have been busy today. Started by going to walMart to get some last minutes stuff.Had to got to 2 different ones.Picked up 2 more dresses and 2 blouses. The one dress is two tight in the arms. Even when I was skinny I always had big upper arms. Then when I check receipt I saw they rang up 2 dresses.
Bought another Bubba cup that will fit in car holder for the trip.Also got some more yarn for my projects.
We have a lot done today and we are both tired. Taking veggies and fruits and food from the house. It will probably only take maybe 30 minutes to get everything loaded when Bill gets home from bowling. I am taking way more stuff than I need. I am hoping to get Roxie to Gina's and head out by 3 at the latest.Maps say 3 hours so it will take us 4.
Ok Here are a few pics as there will be no more til Monday or Tuesday.
Well I am watching AI and he says we will be surprised so I just hope it isn't my favorite. But it has to be as the one girl I don't like is safe.
If I blog tomorrow it will be late after we get there.

I am glad Bill will be home to get stuff ready for Friday. I usually end up doing it all and get very irritated. I have my travel list ready. I take way more than what we need but I can't just run into any store so I always have extra clothes for me.Better to have and not need than to need and not have.
Saw the doc today and he said I am doing ok. Told me I could be more aggressive with diuretics if I needed to. He told me I was doing an excellent job of self medicating myself. With his permission. I mentioned that some family members didn't understand why i don't go to hospitals or big groups. He said I was being very diligent about my heath and agreed that me getting sick could be deadly for me.
Ok have some pics to share. i should you my desert roses when they first started blooming but plants are full now. Then Roxy in hallway watching me try to take a picture of myself. Then the solar lights for garden which Bill just put outside for me.And then me in red dress I got.I have a blue one just like it. I wish it was longer but it is comfortable. I should have smiled but I hate having my picture taken.So here they are.

Ok I need to clean up kitchen. Again.It just won't stay cleaned up.
Have a great night

Wanted to blog early but Bill had his camera with the picnic pictures.
My weight was up a little this morning but I am all over the place.I did get my exercises done.
I also made a big pot of my soup. I am going to take some wih me when we go to Daytona.. I put some bags in a bigger baggie and it is ready to go.I am taking food with me.Soup,salad stuff and fruits. The room has a full kitchen so I don't want to eat out except for at night. That will be hard to watch calories and resisting their great free breakfast. i will take my exercise tapes and my dvd player.
My friend Gina who will be keeping Roxy said she was putting barb wire around her couch.I thought that was so funny. They are looking forward to keeping her.
Ok Here are some more pics
Here is the mug I got yesterday.It keeps my drink colder and ice doesn't melt so fast

Today's butterfly. I almost got one of the yellow guys but he was too fast for me

Here is the new yarn I got.

And here are some picnic pics
The one group one has some handsome man with his sunglasses on.

Ok I need to go clean up the mess I made in kitchen.I can make messes real good.

PS I found the tag and Bill's flower is a Mexican Petunia

I hope you have a wonderful time at Daytona.
Have you read the book, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS? Both Ken and I read it and saw the movie this afternoon. We loved the book and were pleased that the movie followed it so closely. If you haven't read the book, I would highly recommend it. I think you would really like it.

The barbed wire is a great idea....but I'm going to put old fashioned mouse traps on my bed to try to keep my two off my pillows. Nothing worse than fresh sheets and then walking into the room and seeing 3 animals rear ends sitting on the pillows looking out the window.

I missed blogging yesterday.When I realized it was too late.
We went out for lunch and then to Walmart and grocery store. We just went to lucky dill deli but I was very disappointed in my soup.They usually have very good soup but mine tasted burnt.Did eat much.But I did treat myself to a 1/2 liverwurst sandwich.They put enough meat in it for 4 sandwiches even in a half.Took alot of meat off.
Then it was on to my favorite place WalMart. Found 2 summer dress that are very comfortable.I look like a hippo but will look like that in anything. I was looking for comfortable and cool. Then I got 3 cute solar lights for back yard.
And I had a bug in my ear for days now to get some new yarn to chrochet something,Maybe keep hands busy at night. I had a very simple crochet pattern for a shawl blanket thing. i got some light color to try and make a baby blanket and some other to make a bigger one for couch after Bill paints it. Will see what I can do.
The scale was still down this morning but that can change quickly.
Here are a few pic. Bill took some at picnic but I will download them tomorrow.
I can't remember what I have shown so this might be a repeat. I had Bill move the hibiscus as I couldn't see it by fence.He grumbled but admitted he like it better here

I couldn't get a good pic of eagles.The baies are getting so big.

This is Bill's favorite flower out there.He even bought more this year.

And I saved the best for last.
Bill got the bright idea(naught) to let Roxie stay out of cage while we were gone. She pulled the blanket back and chewed thru her bed to the foam. Plus Bill's brand new sneaker was in middle of floor. She did some good chewing on it. I hope if my friend who is keeping her this weekend sees this doesn't change her mind about keeping her. She ate almost nothing yesterday,Guess the foam filled her up.

Oh here is the best. My grandsons Tyler and big brother Benjamin.. My sweet DIL sent it to my phone.

Ok Bill is here. I made meatballs with the extra turkey meatloaf mix but I burned the bottoms.Just cut it off.Put sauce over it and will never know it emoticon
I did exercise this morning

  Hi Eleni.......
Can you tell me the name of the blue flower (Bill's favorite)? Also..........My Orchid is down to one blossom left. When it falls off, how far from the beginning of the stem the blossoms are on, do I cut? I do cut this stem off......right???

Roxy is how old? Maybe she is in the terrible 2s? We had a Dachshund that loved to chew a hole in our comforter and then pull out the fiber-fill and eat it. We discovered what she was doing, when we noticed that all of her bowel movements were wrapped in white puffs!!!

Loved your photos........I always do.
Have a great evening. Do you have a favorite on DWTS?

Rose Cemetery-- Tarpon Springs ,Fl

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I didn't want to do this til I researched it some. Even tho I grew up here I did not know the history.
I first saw this place several years ago and it is a good thing i had a truck at the time.Even with truck I wasn't sure I was getting out without damaging my truck.That is how bad it was neglected. People had used it as a dump and many grave tombstones were broken. Altho it is not in as good a shape as Cycadia it is amazingly better now. It still needs some work and a better road thru it would make a big difference. I will post a couple of articles and the web sites. I did not take a lot of pictures and would like to go back sometime and take more time to find the older and interesting plots. The wooden crosses are unknown graves. But as we were leaving I saw this tombstone that caught my eye.I liked the picture of the lady on it. I had no idea who she was. Just her name was Mahalia Jones
Guess what I found when I looked things up

Possibly the oldest historic African American cemetery in Pinellas County is Rose Cemetery. Originally known as Rose Hill, its actual date of inception is unknown. One of its founders Mahalia Jones, (1856-1924), came to Tarpon Springs from Gainesville in an ox cart. Jasmine Avenue divides Rose from the well-maintained Cycadia Cemetery. A longtime local resident recalls that African Americans were buried "in the back of Cycadia Cemetery", and moreover she asserts this area became the Rose Cemetery. Civil War soldiers are buried here.

Another article saying about same thing

ROSE HISTORICAL CEMETERY 1800-TODAY

Rose Cementary is located in Tarpon Springs, Florida, east of Cycadia Cementary. For over 100 years these sites have existed side by side, yet, segregated from each other as the results of past segreagation policies which dissallowed the internment of Negros in cementaries provided for whites.

Rose Cementaries history began before the earliest marked grave from 1904 and reflects the areas social history and the cultural traditions that are associated with the Christian religion and earlier African American traditions. As one of the oldest African American cementaries in pinellas County, Florida, Rose has served the black communities of Tarpon Springs, Ozona, Dunedin, Clearwater, Tampa, Oldsmar, New Port Richey, and surrounding areas.

Here are my pictures. The main gate is awesome.It is a hugh wrought iron gate and has 2 roses in the center. The web sites show it better than my pic.

Gate

Picnic tables

Headstones

misc.I found it odd that most of graves had same covering on top.

Hopefully improvements will continue.
Bill asked me if I didn't think it was a little morbid for me to be interested in cemeteries. I told him he was looking at it all wrong. i think of it as a celebration of life. A cemetery tells a lot about that person and the people they left behind.Nothing warms the heart more than a beautiful grave lovingly taken care of by people. Or as sad as one that is neglected.
And even tho I find cemeteries interesting I wouldn't want to live next to one nor be in one late at night.

  Hi Eleni.......
We lived next door to a cemetery for 26 years and I always loved to walk through it and read the grave stones. Many were from the Civil War. The site of the cemetery was also the site of an Indian battle and several arrowheads were found. I find that the older I get, the more interested in history I become. I have always liked it, but now that I have more time to do the needed research, it has become a passion.
Thanks for a very interesting blog.

    Hubby and I love to go to cemetery to do genealogy. Your right you learn a lot about the life and times of people this way.
I have to tell you a story since you said you did not like going to cemetery at night.
When I was seven months prego with my son my Hubby took me to a baby cemetery at night and I thought it was odd and to this day I don't know why we had to go there especially after dark. I think he was trying to make a joke of some kind. He was always pulling something on me to get my goat.
A few months later we went to the cemetery in which my Mother is laid to rest and my older sister who died when she was a infant at nine months old. When we were there my Hubby moved a head stone that had fallen over with age and leaned it up against a tree right next to it.
When we got ready to leave after I had worked on the graves and placed fresh flowers on them, we got in the car and it would not start not even a click nothing it was dead as a door nail.
This was a brand new car one with only a few thousand miles on it, so needless to say here we are out in the middle of Cherokee Nation at an old Indian family cemetery on dirt roads when it was getting dark and of course back then in the 70s it was before cell phones and such so we sat and tried the car again and nothing happened.
I had asked him if he put that head stone back where he found it and he said no, I told him to get out there and fix it just like he found it, he did and when he got back and turned the key the car started right up like it should have done on the first two attempts. After that we only visit cemetery in the day time and he has learned not to touch anything.
I hope you and Bill and of course Roxy is having a great Easter Sunday. Hugs. Sandy

I too, love old Cemetery's .
When DH and I retired, We travelled Australia ... and our main hobby was to find old bush cemetery's .. The information we found was very interesting, especially back in the 1700's Captain Cook has been mooted as finding Australia ..
But we found graves on the West Coast of Australia, that were marked in the 1600,s Apparently Dirk Hartok and his crew from Holland ,called in on their way to the Dutch East Indies .... as Malaysia and Indonesia where know as then ... But of course they were just passing through not settling ..

    I like cemeteries too. I like history and dying is part of it. In one cemetery on the grave marker it said, "I told you so Mother". Something like that, I wish I had a camera that day. The way things are now I would be a little afraid going places without a lot of people around.
