Weekending with my Girl in Tampa

Greetings from swampy and hotter than hell Tampa, Florida. I am melting soaking up the rays and having a great time with my favorite girl. 

And, at 15, she is a newly permitted driver. 

Thank goodness for all of us, she's a natural. 

Driving in Florida is not easy. Making a left turn can involve 6-8 lanes of traffic. 

Thankfully, she is careful and aware of her surroundings; she is going to be a great driver.

I reunited with some old friends and met a couple of new ones. My niece is fostering kittens. 

She's a critter whisperer, for sure. She wants to be a veterinarian when she's older, and she even volunteers at a local animal hospital. 

Missing from this picture is Mizty, her older baby-faced cat. 

So far, it has been a fun, low-key, relaxing visit. 

We spent most of the weekend by the pool, dodging rain showers....but then there are the rainbows. 

We also have been playing games, like Rumikub, The Game of Life, and Monopoly Empire and watching movies, like The Maze Runner (and its sequel, The Scorch Trials) and If I Stay

The kittens like the game boxes...instant cat catchers. 

I found summer here, for sure, and the chance to spend time with my favorite girl makes this time cherished time. 

I hope you had a great weekend as well. What did you do? 

American friends, how was your 4th of July?



  1. Those kittens are too cute! Glad you are enjoying your visit. :)

    1. They are so sweet too, Christine. I love their little "mews". We're having a great time, thanks!

  2. Fabulous weekend with your girl! I can't imagine learning to drive now...that makes me sound old, I'm sure. LOL

    1. Me too...especially down here. It's not easy, but if it's all you know, it's NBD. I think all of her time doing all-star cheerleading helps her with awareness of her surroundings. As a cheerleader, she has to know what's going on all around her; it's the same with driving.
