my weekend.







My weekend was awesome!
Friday I went and ordered my new glasses and contacts. I am just so happy to have new contacts. I have been without them for several years now, and I always hated being saddled with glasses. Now I am free!
Saturday Nikki and Chris took me to get henna done. I so love it! I have been wanting to get henna done for a while. Now that I have seen it done, I know I could do it myself. I just have to find the ink.
Saturday afternoon I was so bored. So I grabbed Nikki and Chris and we went to the ocean. Their was a surfing competition going on, so we got to watch a bunch of people surfing. I just love watching surfers. One day I am going to learn to surf.
We saw a ton of crab and lobster shells. Then I spotted a stingray in the ocean. It was dead, so I made Nikki and Chris pull it from the ocean. It was huge and heavy. That thing was almost four feet across!
Sunday all the marines gave me mother day's wishes. I got a few gift cards, and some vegetable plants. That is so perfect for me! Then a bunch of us packed up and went back to the ocean. I swear I could live on the ocean and never get bored with it.
I was looking in the tide pools and I spotted something orange. Orange? I scooped it up and discovered that it was a baby starfish! I have never seen a starfish in the ocean. I ran down the beach to show the kids and they all looked at me like I was crazy! I was thrilled, they were not, but I made them take a picture of me holding the starfish.
I also found one of those big shells that you can hear the ocean in. I see those shells in stores, but I have never found one. Once again I was thrilled, but the children could have cared less.
Today it is back to the grind. I have laundry started, a roast in the crock pot, and some sewing to do.
Life is good.

Sounds like a great weekend. I miss the ocean. I haven't seen it since I became deaf, I wonder what it will feel like to me now, the waves crashing against the shore. (Hugs)Indigo

I think you find wonderful spots on the beach to play and search. I have always loved finding shells, but haven't had too many ocean trips in my life, but now my sister is living on the beach in SF and she is so happy I envy her the ocean. The heat was hard for her to bear, so this summer should be a joy. I love your beach photos. I can never get enough of those. I think it is wonderful to enjoy the sights nature offers wherever we are. But you do have a knack for enjoying whatever you do. A henna sounds wonderful. My daughter is doing red hair now. But I had my mother's disapproval of bangs and straight hair (her hair was curly) in my head until I was old. Too bad. Now I finally got a hair do I like. Hadn't had bangs since I was little, which is how my hair falls, but had to get up there in age to discover my hair did look good in bangs.
