I’ve Got a Pocketful of Sunshine

Today is officially the first day of spring.  Which in Florida means it’s just as hot as summer but doesn’t rain every day yet.  And apparently all of facebook is enjoying this gorgeous weather at Caddy’s on the beach. (No joke, half my facebook friends are there right now!)  I, however, am not.  Because, like every absolutely gorgeous day, I have to go to work.  My next day off, will probably rain, just wait.  That being said, I have learned to enjoy the weather in the small ways that I can.  Walking the dog an extra time or two.  Or, my favorite simple pleasure in life- rolling down the windows, cranking up a good poppy tune, and waving my hand out the window as I drive down the highway trying to forget, if only for a minute, that I am on my way to a long night of work.

In true fashion of my blog, here’s a nice little playlist to help bring some sunshine to your day!

And one of my all time favorite summer songs…

Road Trip?

I’ve never taken a real honest to goodness road trip, though it is on my list of things to do before I die.  I have however spent a great deal of time driving great distances to get from one place to another.  (this is different from a road trip in that on a road trip you don’t necessarily have a set place and time to be).  In these travels I’ve seen some pretty interesting things (interesting to me anyways).  For instance, off of I-75 somewhere in the Ocala, FL area there is a city called Howie-in-the-Hills, FL.  Imagine having to write that out on an envelope.  It would be even worse if you lived off of Walk in-the-Water Rd (which is actually somewhere off of State Road 60).  I don’t know why these things amuse me, but they do.  They give me a little giggle on my otherwise long and painfully boring drives.  Hopefully one day I will put the nearly 20,000 miles a year I drive to good use and take a real road trip!
