Just Thinkin'

Even though I am not an everyday blogger...where does the time go...I visit certain blogs almost everyday and always find a path to something new and then another and so on. So many different people making their way around and it really has me thinking...

I love the blogs that are all sweetness & light and pretty music and have been wondering if it's time to change things up a bit here at Mockingbird Hill.

I have read that some of the ladies purposely write about everything good because they think that's the reason people be cheered or comforted in some way. That's not really me.... (I mean "writing about just the good stuff" part)

I do like the sweet music and almost ethereal feeling I get when I visit some places....but I am a 60's/70's music girl and can't imagine a day without that. So, that's not really me, either....

And, I do love the pink roses and ribbons but red is my favorite color and I have had a few people tell me that the red here is sometimes a surprise, but they like it, too!

But, I also know that change is usually good and keeps things interesting, so I'm looking around for something that is different but still says "me". Oh, I'm sure it will involve a change in color but I'm not sure I can do away with the music. I am so loving the list in the playlist it.

Anyway...just thinking.

Windy, Windy, Windy

I took these pictures a couple of days ago when it was a bit chilly here in F-L-A. Whenever there is a big temperature change, the wind kicks up a bit and it's really noticeable here on the lakeside. I mean..we had whitecaps!!

They even break on the shoreline...check out that clear water! We are lucky to live on the cleanest chain of lakes in Central FL...the Conway Chain.

And there's always more surprises that wash up on the shore...

It seems like there is always a raft or tube that gets loose from across the way...we just pull it up on shore to keep it safe and wait for the owners to show up and claim it. And, they did.

Sorry...this was an accident, but I'm all about the Croc's! I've had this pair for about 5 years....

Anyway...after a couple of chilly days(like 40 degrees chilly!) I think we've seen the end of the coolness. Now we are gearing up for typical FL days...high temps & high humidity.

Before I forget...remember the little thrifted wicker sleigh I was re-doing? Here's how it turned out...sweet! Someone fell in love with it at our Antiques & Trade Fair and they walked off happy. I love the way those little pink flowers match...and the Fairy...and how about the hat??

The whole Fair was tons of fun and we even had the chance to meet LUCY RICARDO!! She loved everything we had done and wanted to get a picture with our Bad Girl can read all about everything here: Bad Girls of the South.

Seems like I'm over the worst of my sickness...and, wouldn't you know The Hub has been under the weather, too. Maybe it is time for some sunny weather!

Okay...Check This Out...

All that font changin' and color addin' can be found at:

Windows Live Writer

You have to sign up (as usual) and then download a simle program...but it actually publishes to your blog for you! I open up a word document, use whatever color and font I want and copy & paste into their Blogger format. Really far. There's lots I haven't done that is editing and stuff like that...but, I just like being able to change things up a bit. :)

Anyway...Happy Saturday!
