This and That









It was a strange weekend weather wise here on the gulf coast of Florida, with Tropical Storm Alberto scheduled to bring rain and wind. It did rain a bit, was breezy, but no more than usual this time of year and I wouldn't call what we saw a tropical storm at all.

We did get out quite a lot, including a walk on the beach near the yoga circle, a trip to the nearby orange grove for orange ice cream and on Monday, a late lunch in downtown Sarasota at a new to us barbeque restaurant. We are trying to discover some non beachy type restaurants; less touristy and better quality food.

I was able to finish watching Little Women on Masterpiece and I loved it so much. The reviews gave this adaptation a mediocre rating, but I thought it was beautifully done, with a bit of a modern feel. For me, the heart of Little Women is Jo, and the actress who plays her had all the charisma needed for the part. If you love this classic novel and especially Jo March, you will enjoy this version.

Happy Tuesday!



  1. SO happy y’all didnt get hit. One set of my kids are in destin right now with in laws and they’re not one bit happy about missing several beach days...when you only get 8-10 a year, we want em all!! We leave for orange beach in 2 weeks. My butt will be on that beach come rain or shine🤪

  2. Any weekend that involves good food....the beach...and soft serve is a winner for me!

  3. I can't wait to start Little Women!! Have a great week, Vicki!

  4. Orange iceam gets a vote from me . . . looks yummy!
    How come no one was in the Yoga Circle??

  5. We haven't been to St. Armand's for well over a year. Probably a couple of years. We like to make a day trip and visit the Ringling and then get good eats on the Circle. I confess to never reading Little Women so have no idea what it's about.

  6. Happy to hear that you didn't get any damage from the storm! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. That orange ice cream cone looks so delicious! I'm glad that the storm didn't slow you down!


Thanks for reading!
