So…um, this is awkward. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for awhile now and it looks like it’s been more than two months since I last did. Whoops. And here we are not only in 2015, but midway through the second month of 2015. Yeah sorry about that. I did get around to making […]
I’ve been busy as usual working on updates, new items and restocks in my PhoenixFire Designs etsy shop. There’s ALWAYS something to do when you’re a one-woman small business! Here’s a peek at some of the pieces I’ve listed lately.
Took this from Pier 60 at Clearwater Beach Sunday, February 2, 2014.
Those of you who follow my facebook page already saw this picture of kitten Ginger, but it’s such a nice shot, I wanted to share it here too. She’s 9 months old as of January 1st and such a beauty I call her my “show cat.” 😉 I was taking jewelry photos and had my […]
Two things I’ve been slacking about by the end of 2013 were updating my blog and not only taking, but editing and sharing some of my photography. Photography is a real passion of mine and I haven’t really been giving it a lot of time in general. Even when I DO take photos, rarely do […]
So Love’s been sick since last week with a miserable cold. He missed work Friday, got sent home Monday, and Tuesday went to the doctor for meds. He’s been coughing violently and like mad for days and days and neither of us got any sleep the entire time because he’d wake up coughing every 15 […]
On October 5, 2011, at age 34, I went in for my Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. It was unbelievably hard. Recovery was painful and slow. But, I was so thankful that I was able to get it in the first place. With a pre-existing condition and no health insurance coverage from my then day-job, no company […]
…out like a meerkat. Or something like that anyway. Here’s a few animal photos I took this afternoon at Busch Gardens. As usual, click any image for larger! It’s so much fun to be able to run to a park for an hour and get to photograph amazing subjects like this. It’s one of the […]
Love’s birthday was Monday, February 18th. (And yes, this year it WAS on President’s Day!) His favorite NHL team is the Boston Bruins. They were coming here to Tampa only once this season and that game was Thursday, February 21st. So I got him tickets to the game as his birthday present. Here’s a few […]
Barenaked Ladies played the “Bands, Brew and BBQ” event at Busch Gardens Tampa on Sunday, February 17th and I was lucky enough to get to go see them! I’ve been a fan of Barenaked Ladies (BNL) for years now. I first got to see them open for one of my all-time favorite singers, Sarah McLachlan, […]
Saturday, December 15th, we went out to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the ever-amazing Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights! Literally millions of lights cover every inch of the backlot “streets.” Every 10 minutes they also “dance” to music. It’s an amazing sight to see! Here’s some photos. Click any image for larger version! It’s […]
I finally had a chance to decorate my Christmas tree last night! I haven’t finished the village and monorail yet but at the very least, lights and ornaments are up! I took some pics last night of it and thought I’d share. ~ ~ I shared this one on facebook, but for those who aren’t […]
It was a beautiful weekend weather-wise here in the Tampa Bay Area with very low humidity and cool breezes. It was lovely. I wanted to enjoy a little of it, so Sunday we went to Sunken Gardens. I had gotten a super cheap Groupon way back in May with the plans to use it when […]
And because even I’m sick of talking about healthcare here’s a cute pic of Gracie in her classic “cat loaf” position: When in doubt, go for cute. And Gracie has cute in spades.
This afternoon, we braved the intense June Florida heat to head to downtown St. Petersburg. I wanted to walk around and get some photos with my new camera. And since Love really loves the area, it seemed like a win-win. Of course, it was INSANELY hot and it even rained briefly (like 5 minutes worth) […]
