Mind’s Eye

The added sweetness of flowers so intoxicating. An aroma that takes your breath away.

I was moped riding some of the old streets in Key West. I had a moment where I felt sorry for those who travel here and get stuck on Duval .The money traps and frozen seafood. and hustlers. A church and a bar on every corner.

Key West is so very beautiful if you know where to go. Little hide aways tucked into lush tropical gardens with dragonflies, butterflies and long-legged cranes.

The added sweetness of flowers so intoxicating. An aroma that takes your breath away.

The broken down wooden fishing spot destroyed by Hurricane Irma just a block or so away from me. I must go there and get some photos.

Still it is quite and peaceful to sit on the broken timber.

Notes From Home


Greetings to all of my faithful followers.

I have been very much on vacation of late. I still live on my little island in thee sun.

Due to extreme weather up North the past weeks has been giving us cold and then very warm days. The fluctuations and with the Island being over run with Snowbirds coming down for some sunshine.
Along with them they bring so many unknown virus’s and the Island is sick literally.

Every where you go someone is sick, getting sick or  have been sick for months. The virus presents flu symptoms but is not the Flu.
In November my daughter and I both felt unwell. Than my beautiful cat China decided to take a bite out of my hand which put me in the hospital the next day.

In December just a trip out to see Christmas lights again brought us down to the Crud status.

In bed for an entire week with heaviness on chest, headaches from hell, sinus, throat and ear issues. I self doctored and it reared back again like Groundhog Day when he keeps having the same thing happen over and over again.
I am totally over homemade chicken noodle soup.

After a week of suffering, and the fact I was having issues breathing I went to the ER.

I was told their was something in the air here making persons ill. They did not know what it was. They diagnosed it as bronchitis and upper respiratory and prescribed the ZPAK, Inhaler, Prednisone and cough syrup. That settled things down and I am feeling much better.
My daughter is still suffering and is in the line of fire so too speak. She can not afford to miss work and can not rest as she should.

My granddaughter is having her wedding shower on March 2nd and then her wedding on the 20th of April.
Yep, 420 everyone.

So that’s two back to back trips coming up for something I must be well to attend.

In November I finally met a friend I met online back in 2010. We are from the same city, went to the same school and even lived just two doors down from each other.We had never met.  It was an awesome reunion at the Hilton 5 Star Hotel. The 12 hour bus trip by Greyhound was the horrors of the trip. That’s 12 up and 12 back.

She had found me from my now extinct web site zimbabast, searching for a Kinkling recipe, a tradition in February with the locals of Frederick, Maryland.
Last year I did not make my fabulous cherry cheesecake on Heart Day because my precious Minnie Kat was dying. She turned 15 on Valentines and passed on March 7 th 2018.

See featured image of my precious Minnie.

I miss her so much.

This year I made two pies and gave slices of heaven to special ones.

My favorite music of late is Sleeping at Last.

I have also recently set up a 10 gallon fish tank. I put in 3 females and 2 males. I am now overwhelmed with so many baby fry. It is beautiful to watch them. I feel like Mother Hubbard who had a shoe with so many children she didn’t know what to do.

With my fish, cat, 8 birds and a sweet furry hamster  I call Chibi, my life is always on a roll.
