My mom, sister and I got together yesterday for a belated Mother's Day. We went to a cool store that does vintage/upcycled items, had lunch and generally just had a nice day together.

Hatty checked out a shell jewelry box.



Then we had some food. I got a yummy pizza:



There was a metal statue of Captain Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribbean) right outside the restaurant, so Hatty wanted her pic with him. Cheesy



At the end of the day, she stopped to smell the gardenia flowers that were blooming.

Tomorrow, I'm going to get to meet Inselaeffchen in person! We were LV partners a couple rounds ago and she's on a Florida vacation. So I'm going to meet up with her and we'll have an international Little Visitor meet too! Grin So wildfyre, your LV will get to meet up with abuckshort's LV!

Today (Saturday May 7th) was Free Comic Book Day! So we hit two different comic book shops.

One of them had some amazingly creative homemade cookies in superhero designs:


Between my husband and I we got a bunch of awesome comics!


Which Hatty promptly dug into:


Much fun was had and many comic left to be read! Grin

Early this morning, way before dawn (around 5:30am) it started to thunder. For the next 2.5 hours we had near constant flashes of lighting and a continuous rumble of thunder rolling across the sky. After an hour or so, it started to rain and the lightning and thunder increased. It was a heck of a storm. My part of Florida is known as "Lightning Alley" and is one of the most lightning-active locations in the world. (Our NHL team is the Tampa Bay Lightning for the same reason!)

Around 6:30am I thought Hatty might want to see some of it, so I grabbed my cell phone and went out onto my balcony. There's a minute long video here: https://youtu.be/RRQXMfSUoI8 The video quality isn't amazing since it was dark and I shot it through my screen, but it gives you a good idea. Wink As you can see the lightning was nearly constant!



After filming, I was able to get back to sleep for a little while thankfully.

Unfortunately, we had a miserable weekend. I paid $200 to be part of what was supposed to be a HUGE festival. That's a LOT of money for me and this is my job so I rely on shows and markets to make a living. Unfortunately, it was a total dud. I sold $70 worth of items and lost a ton of money. Basically, I don't get a paycheck this week. Cry

Almost nobody around mid-day:


So nothing fun for Hatty. I had hoped she could enjoy a rockin' festival but...yeah. Nope.

Hopefully, Hatty can have more fun next weekend. Sad

Hatty came for a walk around my apartment complex today, taking in some local plant life and the pool area!

Pretty pink hibiscus flower!


Artsy palm tree pic! Cheesy

Hatty got a chuckle today out of a HUGE flamingo stuffed animal we spotted at a store:



It was just so fat and puffy it made us chuckle!

So Hatty arrived just in time to come with me for my St. Petersburg Earth Day market today! Grin

She helped oversee the packing of the car - yup! Everything's there!


She enjoyed people watching in the park from behind the table:


And she even gave me a "hand" with my display! Cheesy


Hatty is too little (and prey-shaped) so she didn't come into the pic with me, but they had an owl who you can take selfies with! So I got to take a selfie with an owl today!!


All-in-all a lovely day in a pretty, wooded park in downtown St. Pete and a successful day being a vendor too! Smiley (Plus, owl selfie!)

Both Clyde and Giles have been on multi-round world tours lately and need a vacation from their vacations Cheesy so I think a new LV might be going out this round. abuckshort contacted me because she's a HUGE Disney fan and I live an hour from WDW. She's in Australia and I've never had a successful LV swap there so we agreed to pair up. (The one and only time a LV never made it home was Alfred the Elephant who went Down Under and got lost and never made his way home.)

So here's who I'm thinking of sending on a first voyage:
