Beach Treasures Whale Bone Fossil Vertebrae Found

Jetty Waves From Firefighter To Beach Adventures

The power of the ocean, the tides, the moon and the sea unpredictable, unstoppable. Standing at the top of this beach area is the horizon far and wide as you can see.  The view of the powerful waves washing right up to me was amazing enough until I looked down and found even more amazing treasures that were thrown right up to me. A Whale bone vertebrae fossil was this day’s treasure from the beach. Read more and check out the whale fossils here

I had no idea I would find anything like this on the beach and in all fairness, I had no idea what these were when I first found them I just thought it was awesome looking and had to find out more. I brought it home and cleaned it up and it turns out I found an awesome whale bone vertebrae what’s the chances.

Dolphins and Sunshine

Dolphins and sunshine are awesome together. Dolphins are symbols of strength, loyalty and every reminder of the ocean blue, the beach and oceans of sunshine are beautiful to me. Symbolic treasures are personal to everyone. I love things that reach out to me. I love giving gifts that have meaning to others too.

Personalized dolphins and sunshine yes that definitely works for me!

Beach Carts Seashore, Fishing and Shelling On The Beaches

Beach Carts For Seashore Days, Fishing and Shelling On The Beaches is my latest recommended you really have to think about one of these for your own.

Beach carts are what you need to get your gear down to the beach for an easy trip with this beach buggy, carts and wagons. Foldable for storage when not in use (although we keep everything for the beach like our beach chairs, insulated coolers, kids beach pails and shovels stored away and ready to go in ours when not in use) and they will help you get through the sand and beats carrying your beach chairs, towels, beach bag, lunch bags and insulated coolers as well as fishing gear and sunscreen in your arms.

Whether you are shelling, shore fishing, tanning on the beach or surfing the waves these beach carts are really exceptional. The wheels are made not to dig into the sand instead to roll over the sand making the push or pull of the beach buggy easier than a little red wagon. (we upgraded our wheels but the ones ours came with also worked great, we just really load this up and go a long ways on the beach so we can also do some shore fishing away from the swimmers.

Beach Reflections

Reflections on the beach are as natural as you can ever find anywhere. Created with Mother Nature chemistry of sun, sky, ocean and sand mixed with the memories and thoughts in your mind.

Beach Reflections

Maybe that’s why I love going to the beach so much. Walking along with my thoughts some so deep inside it’s a natural place to let them tumble and wave just like the ocean. After all what’s deep inside of us is a reflection of who we are and where we have been.

Cuddle Your Furbabies

Freezing winter weather brings fireplaces, heat on almost all the time, warm PJ’s and fuzzy socks and slippers. It’s a great time for soup, hot chocolate and the wonderful smell of homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Even in Florida the weather has been colder than chilly and sent Floridians running for long sleeves, real socks and sneakers instead of flip flops, warmer jammies and cozy wonderful blankets. It’s a great time for families that tend to gather together inside especially in the kitchen. It’s a time for being inside and reading books together. Having family game night. And when I say family in our house that means the WHOLE family including our four cats and a dog who love everything that keeps the family all in one place. They are always in on the fun!

Rocky and Bruno want to remind you if it’s chilly for you and you want your blankies, so do they and they are so cute when they let you cuddle them too.

 

Tea Lovers Gift Idea

Here’s a great gift idea for any occasion really but I was struck by how perfect this is for Valentine’s Day. Valentines are famous for love. People you love and things that people love. So many people love tea and I thought what a cute thoughtful gift a teapot would be.

 

 

This cute tea pot is covered with love and isn’t just a valentine for one day, it’s a great every day reminder to make you smile. It can be personalized with names and/or special messages.

It’s not candy but it is really sweet. Tea bags are definitely separate but so are cute little tea cups and mugs that will make a great gift with it, or for another happy holiday or birthday. And of course you can still always include a box of Valentine’s Day Candy for a sweet treat too.

Cat Lovers A Special Breed

Cat lovers are a special breed of person. Cats are so loving, loyal, affectionate, adorable and cuddly. When they feel like it that it is!

Cats are also amazingly independent, aloof, insistent, curious and can really have no boundaries. Cats that love to not only drink from your glass of water, but hey what’s more fun than dunking your paws in it and then knocking it over.

Nothing is more calming and warming than a puddy cat who loves you so much purring on your lap and snuggling in.

All of it are the wonder of cats. I Love Love my cats. I love and wish I could adopt and rescue all the cats (all my cats are rescues from shelters, backyards, a rock pit, under a loading dock….)

I wouldn’t give up a minute with any of them. That’s how cat lovers are. We love them, respect them and our lives are filled with love because of them.

Look Ahead

Look ahead. Especially when you find yourself looking back a little overwhelmed. Things change. Circumstances change. We all change in big and small ways throughout the years. Life is like that. Some days feel more like that than others. Just when you find yourself looking back or slowing down, look ahead. See where you are and know that there’s more ahead. Face it and keep on going. There’s always a light although not always an answer to every question. Not right away anyway. But the light is there even if it just means tomorrow morning will be a little brighter. That sun will come up even on a cloudy day.

Housework Humor

Housework Humor well the funny thing is I’m a great multi-tasker. I can get so much done in a day, hour, night it’s amazing. I can cook it. I can design great designs for my stores and customers. I can go swimming with the kids. Get the food shopping done. Math homework, no problem. Hang a picture. Paint some seashells. I can squeeze it all in with a smile on my face I love being busy doing things I love with people I love.

But somehow I can never seem to have that extra time to clean. The laundry well…..it can wait one more day. Wash the floors, well I think maybe on Wednesday. I hate dishes in the sink so I’m pretty good at getting that done and emptying the dishwasher on time so I can keep the sink empty.  Dusting, oh yeah I forgot I was going to do that today. And the vacuuming well it’s so noisy I’ll get to it later. Probably.

You have to choose your priorities in life. Life is important. Enjoying life is really important. I know housework won’t kill me, but why take the chance. OK I’m really lucky others in the house will pick up the vacuuming jobs and dusting for me but this sign hangs proudly in my kitchen. My husband said they made it for me!
