“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” ~ Chinese Proverb ~

My husband Greg’s favorite thing to do is to go fishing. This can be a solitary sport. As for me, when I go with him, I read while he fishes. To each his own solitude!

52. Winter Landscape (Week 45)

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”  ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo ~

Hmm… Winter Landscape – how am I suppose to show a typical wintery scene when I live on the sunny gulf coast of Sarasota, Florida???  I guess I’m just going to have to use some photos from when relatives came down to get out of their winter in January/February of this year.   IMG_4258 My cousin Don and his wife Juli came down from Minnesota.  We took a drive down beautiful Casey Key and then enjoyed some sunshine at the North Jetty in Venice.  I was amazed how many folks were just sitting in chairs along the banks of the Jetty.  If we asked, I’d bet they’d say they were from Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York! IMG_4268   Juli got her toes in the sand and then we did some shelling before heading for  lunch under the tiki bar at Spanish Pointe in Osprey.  What a great way to spend the afternoon with our northern cousins. IMG_4240   Uncle Gene and his wife Edie came down for several weeks from Wisconsin.  Edie wasn’t too steady on her feet, so we went to Turtle Beach at the south end of Siesta Key to take a look, but we didn’t walk it.

48. There’s Nothing Better Than … (Week 25)

“Train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  ~ NKV Proverbs 22:6 ~

Sure, it’s super being a gramma, but I must say one of my biggest joys is watching my daughter interact with her young boys.  I am so very proud to see the influence she has on molding and shaping their young minds.  She loves on them, encourages them, reads to them, laughs with them, plays with them, teaches them, corrects them ….  Phew!  My job is done!  There’s nothing better than raising your children and having them appreciate what you went through as they raise their own – and seeing what a great job they are doing as parents themselves.
