More Florida



“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!”

Thank you Jeff for taking the sunrise photos!IMG_9950

I love seeing the planes come and go on the grass runway, which happened several times  while we visited.   I always hold my breath until the landing or takeoff is successful.


Jeff volunteered for a couple of projects for his sister.  That man loves a challenge.  Below is the start of a waterfall at one end of the pool.  Jeff built a support from wood:




Finished, for now….Patrice will have it beautified with more rocks and plants very soon:


Jeff also built an awesome sectional sofa out of pallets….


He just whipped this up one rainy afternoon!

I always feel slightly inept when I compare what I accomplish with my husband.  He will do something spectacular, while I cook a meal, weed the garden, read, or plug away at placing little bits of glass within a mosaic…or, more likely, all of those things.   I try not to think about it, but sometimes its hard not to compare…he is in constant motion, like the energizer bunny!

My idea of a wonderful vacation is having plenty of downtime to create, to engage the art brain.  And that I did.   My last post for Florida will be a show and tell of what I enjoyed doing while on vacation.

  1. Jeff is able to create because you take care of his needs, both physical and emotional. Meals, a peaceful home, and happy family. Just because his projects are larger doesn’t make them more important. You are the heart of his home. He’s the builder of your home. Can a body live without a heart? Can a heart live without a body?

  2. I love my big brudder! Lovin the whole pallet project trend I’m seeing. Can’t wait to see what you created!
