Finally a halfway decent walk this week and the butterflies are out everywhere and I can't get a decent picture to save my life. I noticed that the passion flowers are fruiting which led me to wonder if they're edible. This led to finding a blog that I'll definitely be adding to my feed which is called Pure Florida. 
Yes, they are edible and I hope to try some soon.

The sky is darkening to an ominous shade of gray and I am spending the day right here in Lloyd, Florida. I'm going to make a few pints of fig preserves, do a little cleaning.

Mr. Moon and I may go for a little beach trip this weekend, just down to St. George for two nights. I surely could use a little ocean in my sight and on my skin.

And that's about it. I'm feeling a bit more on top of things. I am grateful for a day of downtime to attend to what is right here before me.

I am so grateful for all of you. Thank you.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. A beach break sounds great! I have never been to St. George -- actually to any of the Panhandle beaches. Which is kind of ridiculous, I know. Have a great time if you go, and thank goodness the butterflies are out!

  3. Delighted you're going to the beach!

    I can't imagine the heat, you're right - all I know is, I'd be pretty much dead in it! Our sea is so cold it hurts, but I'd still chose that over your heat :)

  4. Oh yes the beach! I was there today and it would be lovely with just a husband as well.

  5. the beach is a cure all as far as I'm concerned. all that rain we had all winter and spring and early summer has dried up and we haven't had a drop for weeks. can you believe after all the complaining I did that I would like for it to rain.

  6. Yes, yes, the beach, the ocean, one of nature's very best cures. I hope you go and that it does you good. We should be hitting the beach in September and I can't wait.

  7. Go walk barefoot in the sand with your lover. Yes.

  8. I am so grateful for *you*. Thank *you*.

    Ms. Moon, I do not know what I would do without you. Reading your blog makes my heart swell with gratitude (Oprah be damned).

    I hope you get to your ocean. Sometimes I wonder how people live without it so close. My husband says they have lakes but to me it is just not the same.

  9. Hey, I'm also headed to the ocean. I sent you some Reiki this morning... =)

  10. Steve Reed- There really are some spectacular beaches on the west coast up here. You and Dave should plan a vacation. It's especially nice in fall.

    Jo- Oddly enough, we have springs and sink holes that are that cold. I can't tolerate the cold the way I used to but it's nice to dip in them.

    Mwa- Oh yes. You and your sweetie should be able to have some beach time by yourselves.

    Ellen Abbott- Me too! I am so grateful when it rains, even though we've had so much.

    Ms. Vesuvius- September is the BEST beach month around here.

    Desiree- I thank you!

    Angella- We are going to try.

    Birdie- I almost died when I lived in Denver. For some, the mountains are salvation but not for me. I have to have an ocean nearby. And the nearer the better!
    Thank you for the sweet, sweet words.

    Sarah- Well, maybe that's why I've had such a nice day. Thank you!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
