Spring in January

I like living this far south. I will put up with 99 degree weather and 95% humidity even though it's not raining. I get to garden year round. Even though it's freezing on the mainland tonight, it's 10 degrees warmer here on the island. My broccoli is getting ready to take off. My mustard greens, chard, and nasturtium are exploding! Carrots and spinach next! Onions and arugula are everywhere! This is what we call spring in South TX :)

Here goes!

So I keep coming across blogs and have pondered them for a while. Not sure where this will go but I guess we'll know when we get there huh?

Not much is happening on my little island. We scored big time with a sneaky swell yesterday. Solid chest-head glassy surf. It lacked a little oomph but hey, we didn't even expect what we got.

The holidays are coming. Ugh...I love the family time but I hate how folks get so caught up in "things". Do I have enough things? Should I get more things? Blah! Who needs it? My mom has finally realized that we don't care about things. She knows we appreciate them, but we don't need them. This year we get to choose a charity to donate to and maybe a couple of items of clothes. I do need underwear and socks you know! Thanks mom for not falling for the "buy more things" campaign!
