My morning usually starts with a cup of rooibos red or green tea while I sit in my rocking chair taking in the view out our sliding glass doors. Most morning I can count on the pelicans to be soaring through the sky over our canal searching for the perfect fish for their breakfast – I enjoy watching as they spy the best fish and start a spiral decline with a big splash landing into the water. Some days like this morning –  when  the canal is full of fish other bird friends join them in their breakfast feast! Just filling our canal with peaceful floating birds and the sky with soaring birds – what a peaceful way to start my day. How to you start your morning  –  with a  lovely view??


My Love is Like a Red Red Rose

 My love is Like a Red Red Rose

The Deep Red Rose of Love!!

A Red, Red Rose – By Robert Burns

O my Luve’s like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June:
O my Luve’s like the melodie,
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare-thee-weel, my only Luve!
And fare-thee-weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ ’twere ten thousand mile!

Seagulls at Port Canaveral Florida

The seagulls seem to like the view down by the Port  –  where the Disney cruise ship comes through!

Now please excuse me while I head home to wash the black soot off my windows – hmm, I wonder where it comes from!!

Laura Inagall Wilder birthday, life museums visits

Here is a few nice sites about Laura’s real life  — not the T.V. Show. This site Has information about Laura’s  family, the books she wrote, friends mentioned the book,s the museums and home sites.  I thought I had been to all of the home sites and museums even Almanzo Wilder’s home/museum in NY, until I looked at this site, I have missed the one right here in Florida – might need to take care of that. I do agree with Laura Florida is to humid ( except for maybe about three months out of the year). 😉

Here is a site that has some fun recipes and some more information on the Little House sites,  music from the books ,Little house activities &  crafts, Material for homeschooling. and even the T.V.  series


Here is a You tube for your enjoyment;
