It's actually pretty toasty now (a/c back on!), so I am thinking about all of the good things that come in these warmer months and can't wait!
Like MANGOES (trees are in bloom here right now), and this week I baked some of my extremely delish Mango Bread. With all of my blog posts on decorating, crafting, traveling and such......my Mango Bread recipe continues to be one of the most requested! I think that you will find a link to it below...., but if not:
Looking forward to perhaps chillaxing a bit more around the pool.....although it's not heated and as aforementioned I am a "total cold temperature wimp" and won't go in until maybe July!
Last year we put in what the family named "the chill zone" on a little corner of our patio. We had to be practical and it's not really my vintage romantic style.....but in So. Fla we have a MAJOR problem with mildew (hey, it's not So. Cal!) and mosquitoes, so.....set from Home Depot and cabana from Target.
Our tropical wildlife is beginning to come back and look for the food that's starting to appear....like the several Macaws who roam the neighborhood eating coconuts and drinking the sweet milk.
We have wild peacocks too....will see if I can get some photos soon for another post. They are roaming around making loads of noise and mating right now. Stunning creatures, but like most wild birds are extremely LOUD!
Looking forward to beautiful sunsets. This one is unretouched and is from our yard. Doesn't the sky look like it's on fire with beauty?!
Looking forward to long weekends at the beach. I am still working on Mr Fufu to get rid of that HONKIN' BIG TV or at least mount it to the wall!! In this decorating war of "I love junk & he does not", I think I have been making progress....YES!
We never take a day here for granted
Or a sunrise
We enjoy our walks and bike rides at the beach or off in the trails. Bought my blue bike on~line a couple years ago and although I can't remember where, it was an inexpensive purchase!
Of course, living in paradise sometimes comes with a price and we have had several severe hurricanes over the years. Bite my tongue.......praying for NONE this year!!!
Beach bound for a few days for some heavy duty shopping for my Shabbyfufu website. Now THIS was a haul, sheesh....good old days ~ many years back before junkin' was so en vogue! Will see what I can find on this go around!
Speaking of JUNK, I mean BEAUTY....have you picked up the latest issue of Romantic Country Magazine yet? Our dear Fifi of the Chez Fifi blog has done an amazing job with this issue and you will find some of the prettiest inspiration inside!
Lots of love to you from here in So. Fla,
