Friday Fun #6


The temperature outside is frigid.  I would love to sit all bundled up under a blanket reading but today is a writing day.  I’m making progress on my bible study but the tempo is slow.

  • Beautiful images of our world found here on Distractify.   I couldn’t pick a favorite.  They’re all so stunning.
  • Do you dream of traveling the world to see those beautiful sites in the above link?  How much fun would it be to go around the world meeting and filming a new person each day?  This pair of filmmakers are doing just that. Check it out here.
  • Bored with your job?  Would you like to work for a doggie daycare and be the puppy lifeguard on duty?  Puppy Pool Party here.


    A quote from Isak Dinesen:

“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.”

“You are the salt of the earth…”  Matthew 5:13

Beach Trip and House 2013


We stayed at a wonderful beach house this year in Blue Mountain Beach, Florida.  The view was stunning out our back door.  We saw all sorts of marine life this year:dolphins, skates, sand sharks.  But, my personal favorite was the sea turtle.

Blue Mountain is trying to maintain the dunes so the habitat is left to grow.

Come on in and enjoy our beach house 2013! 
I love the gloss on this canvas in the foyer, but what a bugger to take a shot without a reflection!

One of four bedrooms –  Besides the incredible views of the ocean, the other bonus to this property was everybody had their own bedroom and bathroom. 

The house had an open kitchen, dining and living room plan.

I loved the coastal decor.  This artwork would be a great project out of a pallet.
Just looking at the pictures takes me back — I told Honey Do I wanted to stay longer next time! 

After all, you only live once.  YOLO, anyone??

If you didn’t get enough coastal house pictures, here’s the  link to our beach house in 2011.



“The seas have lifted up, O LORD, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.  Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea—the LORD on high is mighty.” 
 Psalm 93:3,4  NIV Bible
