30 Minutes in the Life: October 2018: Portland

For this month’s 30 Minutes I thought I would share some of the time we spent in Portland, Maine. Our drive from Wells Beach took about 40 minutes and we saw some great sights along the way.   Driving up to Portland we had fog. I was not happy.  We were heading to Portland to do some whale watching.  Ugh – fog means no whale…

30 Minutes in the Life: August 2018

I have recently taken to photographing lizards, big and small, While out on my walk out the other day, I was mentally thinking I was a little disappointed that I had not come across any Iguana.  Iguana are illegal aliens apparently to South Florida.  To my mind they are incredibly beautiful lizards however, they do breed copiously and are inclined to take over.  However, I…

30 Minutes in the Life: July 2018

This month I was really challenged on what to blog.  It has been a busy month and a number of doctors appointments has had me busy on my day’s off.  I was playing around with the computer the other evening and thought I would come up with some silhouettes. So here is this months 30 minutes of working on my computer.   Thank you…

30 Minutes in the Life: June 2018

Growing up with an English grandmother living in our home, the ritual of tea drinking was a common place occurrence.  We did not drink coffee very often.  Moving to the USA, I quickly changed to drinking coffee but over the past few years I have reverted back to drinking tea. Recently my immediate supervisor at work retired, and the ladies in her leadership team…

30 Minutes in the Life: May 2018

For my 30 Minutes in the Life this month I am going to share a trip to the Loxahatchee National Park which is 15 minutes from where I live.  A quick, jump in the car and rush up in time to catch the sunset.  We have had a lot of rain and so it has made it difficult to get any photo’s recently. This…

30 Minutes in the Life: April 2018

All motor vehicles were kicked out of the neighborhood this past week in order to repave the road.  So the first day I went off to work, and when I came home it appeared that you could drive in.  All they had done was lifted the existing tar.  So I snuck in, rebel that I am lol.  However, that meant I had to be…

30 Minutes in the Life: March 2018

March 24th, and this is a culmination of 5 weeks of pain, 5 weeks of anger, 5 weeks of tireless planning, 5 weeks of being strong in the face of such devastating sorrow and heartbreak.  March 24th is the day that we marched for our Lives #Marchforourlives. I will confess upfront that my blog images are taken over more than 30 minutes but I…

30 Minutes in the life: February 2018

Valentines Day.  The day for red hearts, roses, chocolates and love! Valentines Day started out like that at Margory Stoneman Douglas High School, but by the end of the day, the red that that could be seen was the blood of children and their teachers.  Mowed down by a lunatic with an arsenal, which laws allowed him to collect.  Laws that at the age…

Thirty Minutes in the Life: October 2017

Knowing that I was going to have surgery, I took some time to go out and pre-shoot some images so that I would be able to keep up with my blogs.  Today I am sharing some images taken at the Butterfly World. I am always amazed at the beauty of creation.  Butterflies encompass that beauty and the unique creativity that we see in this…

30 Minutes in the Life: August 2017

A last minute suggestion of an overnight stay in Key West in preparation for my long enforced sabbatical on the bed, post surgery, was met with enthusiasm.  Off to Key West we were going. Friday we walked a lot and by the evening my feet were not feeling happy.  One year post the first surgery and the discomfort is still evident.  Healing it appears,…
