Paradise calls . . . with photos!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I am so lovin' my home away from home today! $20 at the farmerís market today brought me a taste of Freggies heaven: 4.5 lbs tomatoes, 1 lb green beans, potatoes (Idaho, red, and sweet), 2 bunches of asparagus, 3 red sweet peppers, 6 medium zucchini, 9 oz fresh bean sprouts and a small to medium-sized watermelon.

One free parking spot also provides me a delightful waterfront walk along the Caloosahatchee River . . . just a few miles up from the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico. This water girl and freggies queen truly is feeling heavenly today.

The snow in my northland home cannot leave soon enough, as weíre been in yet another winter storm watch. Yikes! This is how I left the DLH Airport (the old terminal has been raised for removal):

Don't get me wrong, I love all four seasons, but I can also appreciate the paradise my newly met SparkFriends (FloridaSun and ZellaZM below) live in and Birthday Bear (BevieAnn) enjoys while visiting Hawaii.

May you find joy in this day and every day. What is bringing you great joy these days?

    Hello my dear HAPPY to see the two of us...two cute little peas in a friendship pod! Your visit TRULY made my day! Our friends Richard and Deb went back home to Iowa and they are shocked by the snow they see falling this late in the year.

I hope we haven't crippled our dear Mother Earth to the point that she has forgotten her seasonal memories.

Hugs to you dear are a beautiful and spirited and inspirational friend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for sharing Evelyn. I have been wondering what you are up to and it looks like that is a bunch of sunshine! I have been away from my computer for the past 4 days and in catching up on my e-mails I realized that it is my Spark Friends that can bring me joy today and every day emoticon

    I've heard it's safe for me to go back to Germany, too! They've been having days in the lower 70's.

    One of my best market experiences was between a wedding and a week at the beach. We went to this old train station in Philadelphia and the prices were unbelievable! We had healthy eating on that vacation! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
