As a teenager, I spent many hours in my room with headphones on listening to very loud music. Now, I get paid to do it. Still not sure how I managed that!
I grew up on a farm in Florida riding horses, motorcycles and surfing. I don't surf much anymore, but I still ride horses and motorcycles. I love nothing more than long, all day motorcycles rides. I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie and pretty much your all American girl, as happy in a pair of cowboy boots, or motorcycle boots, as I am in heels. Oh, and I'm a Gator fan. But I'll cheer for Georgia, as long as they're not playing the Gators.
I love to cook and I grow my own herbs. Not pot -- real herbs for cooking!
I love all types of music, but I think my favs are classic rock and country. They just seem to speak to me.

As we all know, with spring and summer come baby birds. But the strangest thing, a mother bird decided to build a nest in the juniper bush just adjacent to the jock entrance to our building. This is a pretty active door and it just seems like she would have picked an area with a little less activity. And we can't stop looking at the babies. The mama bird doesn't seem to mind though. It's so funny how fast these little guys are growing. We think they are North Carolina Wren.
This first picture was taken when we first discovered them this past Friday -- bald little babes with their eyes shut.
By Monday (june 25) their eyes were still closed but they were covered in this soft looking down.
By the time we got to work on Tuesday, they were starting to get their feathers.
Here's the Mama Bird on her next. She doesn't seem to really mind us being around.
Here's a picture of her that shows the babies! We check on them everyday. And I think I'm the worst!
We saw a snake outside about two weeks ago. It was huge. So we are on the lookout for the snake. The nest is kind of low to the ground, at least lower than you would expect it. We expect the little guys and girls to be flying away soon. We will miss them. It's like the most exciting thing to happen around here in awhile.
If you have any baby bird pictures where you work or life feel free to post them on our Facebook page so we all can see them!
Every weather station needs the Granny-Cast 2000. The most accurate weather forecasting technology yet. It's a Southern thing!
I always laughed at the commercials. For years I asked who in the world would buy one of these? Then I bought one -- A Hillary Clinton Chia Pet!
OMG, it is sooooo much fun. First you drown her for one hour.
Wait, her nose is stickout out!
Meanwhile you mix up the seeds.
You put the seeds on her head. I've always wanted to do Hillary's hair. They look like pot seeds, don't they? I don't think they are.
Then, she dries out for 2 days. Yea, that pesky drinking problem.
Then you fill her up with water, put a plastic bag over her head and smother her for 2 days. I can't wait to do that part! Then she sprouts. I can’t help but wonder if Bill has a Hillary Chia and if Hillary has a Bill Chia, that they keep in their separate bedrooms/houses. And do they lie to each other about it?. I like to think they do. That warms my heart!!! 😂😂😂I'll
