Just Some Ramblings

I’ve been told I love to ramble on, so why not pass along some of my ramblings from this past month.

By the calendar, its officially winter, which is my favorite time of the year in Central Florida. The humidity and temperature are way down and I love being outdoors. This is the time of the year when hubby and I love to take a few day trips.


Flowers are starting to bloom in all the gardens and oranges and strawberries are ready to be picked. Driving by the Florida’s Natural Growers plant and taking in the smell of fresh oranges is intoxicating this time of the year. If you are ever in Central Florida this time of the year and maybe stopping by Lego Land, be sure to stop by the Visitor’s Center for Florida’s Natural and take a tour.

After having a 1/4 of her lungs removed and several chemo treatments, my mom is doing so well! She is such a trooper for being 81 years old. She recovered from the 2 surgeries with no problems, she didn’t hardly lose any hair and the chemo just slowed her down a bit. I learned a lot during the past 9 months, not only about cancer but about being a care giver.

My “mom” instincts kind of kicked in too much than it should’ve and I think I was a bit annoying to her. Especially when she planned 3 cruises during the time of chemo treatments and I expressed my opinion on that subject a bit too much. She ignored me, went on the trips and survived. She is already packed and ready to head to Mardi Gras!! She does enjoy traveling.

She did come back from her last trip with a cold that is slowly going away. Her onocologists biggest concern now and looking forward, is pneumonia and weekness. She will have scans every 6 months to check for recurring cancer.

I want to thank all of you for all your concerns and continued prayers for her complete recovery. 

Instagram times to post

I use Later to post my Instagram posts and stories. I receive emails from about how Instagram can work its best for you. The latest email was about the best times to post on Instagram. Its well worth the read if you post a lot on Instagram to help your brand and engagement.


What a cute sweatshirt for Valentines! Comes in several colors for the shirt and several cute designs for the hearts. I choose the one above and actually you could wear this all the time. We all need a little “heart” now and again.

Just ramblin’ on,



  1. Nice ramblings! I am glad your mom is doing well, and although maybe annoyed, I am sure she also felt appreciated by your concern for her wellbeing. Those Florida citrusy fruits really are awesome.

  2. I really enjoyed reading this post. I wish it was warmer in my state to harvest fruits and veggies.

  3. I am so glad your mom is doing better and that she got to go on her cruises.

    I never know the rules of Instagram. I just post in the mornings and leave it at that.

  4. I’m glad your mom is doing well with her treatments. That’s a tough thing to go through!

  5. That’s a really interesting graph from Later – I always post about 8pm but maybe I need to be changing that. Good to hear your Mum is doing OK with her treatments.

  6. wow this is really interesting- i def post before 8 but idk dong it in the morning can be helpful and thats really when i get a lot of work done

  7. Woah that pink barn is something else! It’s almost too bright with all that snow! I enjoyed reading your rambles. I ramble too, and I used to a Friday recap of rambles from my week. I think I’ll bring it back.

  8. I’m glad that your mom is doing well! I love that sweatshirt and it would be perfect for any day of the year. The pink barn is unexpected but very pretty!

  9. I love that heart shirt, such cute colors and I agree, everyone could use a little heart, now and again. I sure could use mine a little more these days I think too. I need to make a point to be a little better, despite what is aimed at me.
