I’m still alive, you know, in case you were wondering. I ain’t gonna lie it was really hard to leave this view.
First, we were in Nokomis until late Thursday night. We spent a lot of time with MacGyvers sister and her husband, and the parents and we had a lovely time. I got some great pictures of the beach.
And I got some great pictures of some seagulls.
And who can forget about the fish? Not that we caught any that were substantial which is why I am going to show you just one picture and it’s the picture I took from our dock. You can see the millions of mullet that are in there and also you can see that the water seems milky.
I’m not sure what’s going on with the water but MacGyver and I are convinced it is the reason we didn’t catch any ginormous fish. It has absolutely nothing to do with skill, trust!
You may also remember I told you that we were working on some craft projects. Well, I am prepared to show you my masterpieces. Yes, plural, because I made two…so far.
The project that we were doing involved several steps. The first step was to remove all the backing of a picture frame and then use clear caulk and seal the glass to the back of the frame. Then you draw a picture of what you want the finished piece to look like on top of the frame. For this project I wanted a seahorse.
Once you’ve drawn the picture you then place shells or sea glass or beads or whatever you want over the picture.
Then you pour an epoxy resin over the shells and let it set for the next 48-72 hours. After waiting for the resin to completely dry, you hang your masterpiece.
And this was the second one that I did, a Mermaid.
I’m sure I’ll be making more of these. It was such a fun thing to do but I gotta be honest though, for now, I’m all crafted out.
On Friday morning MacGyver and I got up and took the dogs down to see the peacocks.
They were in rare form. It’s mating season so they haven’t left the farm all that much which is why we had to go see them.
After walking the dogs I headed off to the chiropractor. While at the chiropractor I found out something about my health that had no relation to why I was at the chiropractor, and it was quite disconcerting. I’m not ready to talk about it yet and probably won’t be until I see a few more doctors but what I will say is that I chose not to do a long run this weekend and I think the mystery of the migraines may no longer be a mystery.
I swear I’m not doing the vague blogger thing, I just don’t want to speculate on something that I don’t really have all the answers to just yet.
Anyhow, since I didn’t get a long run in MacGyver thought a nice little kayak ride was in order and so that’s what we did on Saturday afternoon and y’all it was lovely!
With all that was going on and despite my health concerns, I did manage to run 32 miles last week. I also cross trained with kayaking and a little yoga and I did 3 weight routines. Go Me! 😉
And now you’re all caught up, well except for the canine chronicles….
And now, you’re all caught up.
What did you do this weekend?
