Lazy Friday - Sleepy Day

Yesterday afternoon with the grandsons was fun. The four year old sees life on the fast track - the three year old is more laid back. All their antics make me tired but I wouldn't trade my time with them for any other.

I'm having a lazy day that I don't deserve. My chores are at least two weeks behind but who cares? They aren't high on my priority list. Instead of doing chores I'm beginning to think about spending a few days at the coast. Gotta try to plan around the fall storms and hope for the best. I want to be still, listen, watch, and smell the sea. Best place in the world to put a smile on my old face. We'll go the Alabama/Florida Panhandle coast. Anyone have any suggestions for places to stay? I'm looking at Legacy By the Sea on Panama City Beach but haven't decided. Hubby leaves these decisions to me - - that's both good and bad.

Our vacation this summer was really fun. The first day we drove to Tarpon Springs on the west coast of Florida. It's a little village south of Tampa. From there we spent the next 9 days driving around the Florida coast (both west and east). I'd never seen much of Florida so most of it was new to me. Hubby planned several firsts for me but the most daring was a ride-along in a NASCAR Cup car at Daytona Speedway. It was three complete laps at racing speed. WOW!! Who would have thought that an old lady would actually crawl in the window of a race car? But then I've never been known for being cautious.

I want to wish everyone who visits my blog a wonderful weekend filled with peace and the things most wished for.

Glad I'm not the only one that doesn't put chores on high priority. Just as I start to catch up I look back and everything behind me is coming all-undone again. I wait as long as I can to begin the race.

Glad you and hubby enjoyed the reefs. We spend lots of time just watching them. When folks come to our home they most always end up in front of the tanks.

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I visit yours at least once every day.
