In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Florida! We made it!!!
Packing for Florida included lots of snacks...
and some muffins. There were five of us going, and staying in a condo. Two of the five are teenage girls. One of them eats like a bird, but the other one!!!!!!
Off we go...I wish I would have gotten a picture of the two teens in the very back. They 'nested' in the back with blankets, pillows, I-phones( plugged into a charger). Never heard a peep out of them, except maybe to complain because it was taking too long to get there! I was kind of jealous of their little nest.
Vickie told us she doesn't like bridges, especially driving over them, especially when they are over water! Needless to say, the rest of the time we had to tease her every time we went over a bridge. "Whhhhhiiiiissshhhhh....here comes a wave Vickie!)
I, on the other hand, think bridges are kind of cool.
But the traffic.....
the traffic. This traffic added about three extra hours to our driving time, per day.
Then there was this to deal with, which we luckily did not get into. We drove along side it all the way from Indiana. And the wind was atrocious! We had a car top carrier that sang to us quite frequently all the way there!
But we made it, on Saturday, unpacked a few things, freshened up,
and headed to Margaritaville in Destin, Florida at the Harbor shops. This was our view.
I'm 58. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. 2016 and we are finally living on the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
