Hammock Daydreamin’

Sorry to have been such a stranger lately. We have a few irons in the fire right now, making for some fun plans this summer; lots of things going on. T-Ball has been a Sand Gnat bitten bad experience so far for the girls and their coach. So that’s why I haven’t bombarded you with shared some more pictures here.

So this birthday weekend I choose just to flop in my hammock with my favorite Jimmy Buffet song(s) and contemplate the near future. Click on my horizontal triangle below and drift away with me this lazy spring day…..dreamin our life away.

I found out this song was about Jimmy’s father. It’s a great song to sway in the breeze to, my hat pulled over my eyes.

And so, as I lay here in my hammock, I ponder what would my legacy might be with my girls one day….

…I don’t want to jinks anything but we are hoping to have a pool built in our backyard this week, or at least begun. Not that we are that well-to-do or anything. It’s a smaller pool. We just wanted some place for our girls to hang close to us. Its fun planning the details here in the shade and the breeze.

…. I bought some snazzy new Bluetooth speakers for our pool deck a month ago when they were on sale with Verizon. Actually two of them so we can have Jimmy and his band with us by the pool. They get great reviews and have amazing sound supposedly.

But I am having trouble figuring out how to get them to work however. I guess I should get them out of the box and read the instructions….

….We are also putting the final touches on an escape to the Magical Kingdom.disneyWhat fun that will be for me the kids. I haven’t been there since the 70’s! So I’m getting kinda excited too.

hmmm…. what else?

I may be getting published! I found our local PTA chair started an E-book publishing company and spoke to me about submitting some of my writings. Yea, they sell for about $2.00 and I could get about 70% of that. But then I can put that widget on my blog that says I was published! Anyone else want to do E-Books? Let me know. I will put you in touch. Heck, if I can anyone can!

Dylan has her end of year Girl Scouts party today at the local water park. So I am taking my Daddy’s girl there while Mom was going to distract Skylar and run her out to the beach at the same time..


…ahhh the beach

“Sailin’ on a Midnight boat,

there were no questions asked.

The water’s so green and the air is so clean,

They just stuck right to their task,

Hammock daydreamin….”

Just maybe by the time you read this I will have aged another year. I don’t like birthdays any more. I get the birthday blues frequently. I don’t want to get any older. Hell, I look in the mirror and see what I see and I look too old now. But as I wink at myself in my day dream, and raise my head up and take a sip of my adult beverage, I toast to how it beats the alternative…..

…..Have you noticed there are a lot  of birthdays in May?  A lot of hanky-panky on vacations in August I figure. I’ll toast to that!

…Hey, where’d my sun go?  …Darn cloud.

Oh, and did I tell you after they put in our pool I may have to re-sod the entire back yard! I don’t mind, It’s worth it. I’ll get right on it….one day. (yawn)

…..I have a(nother) high school reunion coming up in the fall. Folks, I have moved around so much that my classmates don’t even try to find me anymore. Plus I live about a day’s car ride away. But with the help of a long-lost high school friend or two I may  make this one, the good Lord willing.

….And as I lay here swaying in the warm Spring sun I wonder how I can bring my schoolmates to the beach next time for our reunion instead. We have a large banquet hall at my beach, resting on the shore of an exotic beach known as the Isle of Palms. What could be more inviting?

beach picnicWe could make a day of it this way! There’s the beach, cooking out under the pavilion, volleyball matches for those of us who can still jump, beach combing, free beach parking, catching up and fellowship with old friends; and their families, lost loves…..

“…as I watch the spring clouds swirl.

Fragrance on the pillow case and he

Thinks about the girl….

Spillin’ wine

and sharing good times,

She sure could make him smile!

But what the Hell

He’ll be moving in a little while

Hammock daydreamin.

Oh, I’m just dreaming

My life away….”

Have a great week everyone!

I’ll try to do better next time.

Thanks for the nap Jimmy!
