He worked hard for it!!

My youngest son got his first car today!!  I am so happy for him, and he paid for every dime of it with his own $$money$$. 
You can see how proud of it he is by the lil smirk/smile on his face.  He is not usually one that will pose for a pic for me but he was all to happy to do it when I asked him this time.  So proud of him!!  He is the youngest of my three children and both of the others burned a streak in the street to get to the drivers license branch on THE DAY they were old enough to get their drivers licenses.  Ha Ha, but not Brad he is a little more reserved than the other two and did not get his license until about 3 months ago and he will be 20 in January.    

   His big brother was brave enough to go for a ride thru our subdivision with him so he could show it off to him.  Its a nice little starter car that will get good gas mileage, 4 door and has been well taken care of with low miles.  The price was right, and the AC blows cooollllddd, thats an absolute must in FL.   

              I hope that he has good luck with it, with a used car you never know but I think he lucked out. 

I know he will appreciate it alot more because he did it himself!!
    Congratulations Bradley!!  I am very proud of you and the fact that you paid your own hard earned money for your first car.  

On another note my hens had a chick......................look.

So far I am having good luck with the hens and chicks my mom sent me.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will continue to hatch chicks....ha ha.   I am on vacation thru next Tuesday, not going anywhere just doing a little of this and a little of that right here around home.  Just taking it easy enjoying my honey, my furkids and my home.   Have a great evening everyone.

A little of this and a little of that!

Its been awhile since I have posted so let me catch you up with whats been happening over the last couple of weeks.  We have been to the beach a couple of times. 

There has been a red headed woodpecker hanging out in the neighbors tree.  I love to sit on my front porch and listen to him and watch how he trys to perfect his little hole in the tree.

My honey went on a fishing expedition on the "Majestic" and brought home a mess of fish.  We had a wonderful fish fry, with cheese grits, cole slaw and hush puppies.  There is not many things as yummy af fresh fried fish.

Check out these "chompers".

I had a few tomatoes on my one and only tomato plant.  They were very tasty, as I always say when I get a good tomato, "I could taste the sunshine" in them.   ;)

I've also been going to the pool here and there on the weekends with my daughter.  I love to swim but I would not dare run you all off by posting a pic of me in my bathing suit.  I wanna keep what on-line friends I have.....LOL. 

We have finally been getting some MUCH NEEDED rain off and on for over a week now thank goodness!!  However, the first day that we finally did get some rain it was a severe thunderstorm that did quite a bit of damage all over Jacksonville.  I honestly thought a tornado was coming.  It literally rained sideways.  We have 1 large tree in our front yard and I am always so scared we will lose it when a bad storm like that comes thru.  After the storm was over my honey and I rode around the immediate area and seen trees that had literally ripped the ground up around the base of the trees anywhere from 4 to 6 feet around, and had turned the sidewalk up like it was domino pieces.  Thankfully the rain we have had since then has just been heavy late afternoon showers minus all of the unwanted extras.

       And finally to sum things up we ventured off to the Daytona Flea Market this past weekend.  It is very large and has lots and lots of everything you could imagine a flea market having.  Some of the aisles we saw several times and I am sure there are some that we never made it to.  It would of made too much sense to have grabbed a map when we went in....  :(  We enjoyed some super sweet and juicy Georgia peaches, tried some Sicilian olives, and purchased some Greek Gourmet salad, (sun dried tomatoes and multiple types of olives) and some fresh pistachios. 

I found some great inexpensive jewelry, and the price was definately right!!  You can see below the variety that I found and did not spend more than $10.00 for all of it.

This cream and glass seashell bracelet is just perfect to wear with a white summery blouse.

 I just love this Turquise charm bracelet and earrings which have charms on them as well.
And of course you can never go wrong with your basic black which goes with just about anything.

And then just a few odds and ends pieces that I couldn't resist.

Other than that I have been doing some research of different Florida State parks that I would like to visit.  Enjoying my facebook friends and family, and reading all the blogs I follow.  Hope all of you are enjoying your summer.
