Weekend Snapshots

Apologies to my readers who are not college basketball fans, but our weekend centered around the NCAA Tournament, bracket watching and most importantly MSU's two wins and advancement to the Sweet Sixteen.  The team this year is so much fun to watch and we are looking forward to the next game on Friday against LSU.  Watching the games with our Florida Spartan friends has been the best.

In between basketball games, I snapped some photos of sunsets, blue skies and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.  We are in the sweet spot of weather here and early Saturday morning I sat on the mostly empty beach with my coffee and just enjoyed the 67 degree temperature, with no humidity and the sound of the surf.  When I do this, I feel all the emotions, but mostly oh so lucky.

Finally, a friend gave me the first two books in the Poldark series to read and I am looking forward to seeing how they differ from the television series (which I love). I like to have an actual book for the pool, as opposed to my IPad, so they will be perfect for that.


Happy Monday!


  1. Great photos! Gosh, I didn't know there were books about Ross! We love that series too. I will have to go looking for them now! Joe's Villanova Wildcats lost hugely to Purdue. It was not pretty. I'm kinda glad we don't have to watch anymore! LOL

    1. It's the book series the show is based on. Each book is a character's name. The second book is Demelza.

  2. I really do like the original Poldark books. I think the productions (both this version and the 1980s one with Robin Ellis, who later played a judge in the current version) are pretty faithful. I think there are quite a few -- a good saga! I've read a few of them.

    Fingers are crossed this weekend for our team. It's so lively around here when they win. I don't like to think about what happens when they lose...

  3. funny that I didn’t realize you were talking about basketball in our convo the other day. We are HUGE football and baseball LSUers but never been interested in basketball. Does that make us fair weather alumni???!!!!
    Lemme know if y’all beat us!! Heheh

  4. We have been watching the games too! BASEBALL starts today and I am so excited! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!


Thanks for reading!
