I have been thinking a lot lately how age truly is but a number butta numba (but a number) with this new year just starting out and my b'day coming up next month. Generally speaking I feel pretty good, but when I get sick (like a few weeks ago) I remember how much I hate feeling crappy.....so I am going to try and really ramp it up even more this year and look to my sweet Mr. Fufu for inspiration. We are not so young...no kiddos for us until over 30 and now our oldest is 25, so you do the math. This guy is going to be doing the Miami Marathon on Sunday, although the 1/2 has become his ritual the last couple of years. Still a very respectable 13+ miles, and he is built for speed!
No way could I....but he has the whip on me to exercise every day~lol! We just spent a couple of days at the tail end of our Buying Trip at our beach home, and he had me out doing 4 mile walk/runs on the beach.
And to work off any of the excess holiday chocolate 8 miles of trail riding in the mangrove preserves. WHEW!
We are contemplating penning an exercise and fitness blog somewhere down the road....you know, for us "older folks". Let me know if you might be interested....I will pass the info along to the Mr.
Here are a couple more pics for my Northern buddies who are dreaming of the warm weather down in Florida~come on down!
I found lots of beach glass to add to my collection.
Not a single soul to be seen for miles on our barrier island.
What are they thinking I wonder?
Doing this post a bit backward, the Buying Trip was a big success and lots of fun.
We went to several of our usual and customary haunts, including Renninger's Antique Show in Mt. Dora. I was pleasantly surprised to meet up with Kim Ryan the very talented rose painter and owner of the Shabby Rose Studio, who I have known for years on the internet. Not only can she paint, but she has a FABU new line of clothing called Paris Rags.
Me and the darling Kim, taken after a longggggg day of being outdoors in the COLD (for Florida:-)!
Kim's daughter Mikayla is an entrepreneur in the making and was a bonafide assistant.
I purchased a couple of her gorgeous perfume bottles. This one is now at home in our beach home with an aqua and pink vignette.
Whaddaya think, a new idea for a Shabbyfufu Dress Form perhaps? (NOT!)
I am going to be holed up in my own studio this week, as I have LOADS of projects to work on and hope to have posted on the website this weekend.........while I am NOT running a marathon!
Love to all~
