Mexican Pelicans and Palms

The Pelicans came in close
for a day of
Sardine Hunting Heaven

It was so amazing watching them.

Then it was back to work for me...... 3x5
so hard to do
when Sardine Hunting is right out front!

My largest work ever.......

10 Years Later...Causeway Collapse

I know most of you remember where you were on 9/11

Those of us that lived on South Padre Island, Texas had a double tragedy that year

We Will Always Remember


September 15th 2001


South Padre Island, Texas

Our Home for the last 20+ years

It's somewhere around 2am....the phone a mother of 4 daughters your heart jumps up and out as you reach for it...

Awful Thoughts swirling around

Eyes won't open

Who is Home? Who is Not? Fast mental Recall......Come on..... THINK!!!!

Oldest is home

Second one is asleep in her room

The Twins......Omg..... they are at a slumber party!

OK.... DO NOT Panic!!!

Me Answering phone...........


Terrorists Blew Up the Causeway!!!


My Mind is Now Spinning out of Control.......9/11 had just happened......

Girls.....this is not funny!!!! Stop joking around and go to sleep......another caller beeps in.....


There were no terrorists.....just one barge that changed the lives of so many......



10 Years Later

I will remember the good that came out of that horrible tragedy....

That event changed our very small community forever.

Blessings to all the families and friends that lost their loved ones that day.

I have been so bad about keeping up with my blog..........

I am in the Land of Manana!

I am really, really going to try and do this more often.

I have been busy with life...........

Bought my dream home in theTexas Hill Country

Did a HUGE remodel on the house there

Bought more land with another house on it

Was able to pull off a wonderful Holiday Season with all the family

Finally got a NEW PC for Christmas

Did another remodel

Rented it out

Packed up Miss Sammy girl (who loves to chase the poor deer)

Drove back to Mexico

Cleaned House to ready for the incoming family

Took a jewelry class with the best ever....... Richard Salley

.........if you haven't been you are missing a fantastic time!

Sam is the best Hostess!

Had a terrible freak storm(it's not even rainy season here in Bucerias, Mexico) and am still cleaning that mess up.......well...... it is the land of manana!

Friends and Family have all gone home


I have missed every one of you and hope you enjoy the pictures that show what's been happening the last few months
