Tonight, we FINALLY got to go see Star Wars Rogue One! Alby and Splash were slightly naughty and snuck into the movies in my purse. Wink It was one of the theaters though with the awesome fully reclining seats which is the ONLY way to see a movie! Cheesy



(this was during the preshow; I put my phone away during the movie)


We enjoyed the movie and it was nice to get out and do something fun tonight!

Meanwhile, it was was 77F/25C and delightful yesterday in Clearwater for my first market of the season. We were back right at the harbor on the waterfront so Alby and Splash enjoyed Florida's idea of January. Wink

Holy 1960's Batman! Shocked Today was '66 Batman day at the local comic book shop, Emerald City Comics. So the Caped Crusaders were nice enough to pose with Alby and Splash! Grin

They took pics too for their fb page. I'll update when they post. They've come to know me at this point since I've brought a few visitors to the various photo ops (including Capt America, Iron Man, and more. LOL My LVs are kinda famous! Cheesy )

Despite bronchitis continuing to suck (oh my gods my ribs hurt SO BAD) we *might* have snuck away Dec 30th to take advantage of (a) the single, solitary cold weather day thus far this winter and (b) all the festivities and fun of New Year's Eve without the crowds at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Cheesy






**************





I have more pics but they're DSLR ones (the first two are cell phone which is why they're blurry LOL) so I need to edit them. But consider it a nice sneak peek. Much fun was had!

Today we had to run out for a few errands. The downside of being sick so long is so little got done this month. We even had to run to *gasp* THE MALL. But...it was actually really not busy at all. We've been there on a normal weekend day and seen it busier. We were shocked. It's the FRU-FRU fancy pants mall. Has stores like a Tiffany's and Burberrys and such. (Previous rounds I've taken pics with Bentleys from there for example.)

Turns out, they also opened a TESLA SHOWROOM!! Right on the second floor! OMG I love Tesla Motors. I want one so much. I see them all over but I've never gotten to SIT in one before - but I did today!



Alby and Splash even got to sit in one more their own size!  Cheesy (You can really buy one of them apparently! Link: http://tesla.radioflyer.com/build.html Only way I can afford one!)



Santa, if you're still taking lists, I'd like a Model S please! Wink

We managed to get all our gifts wrapped and even decorate the tree. Huzzah!





Tomorrow, we have two families to visit so should have some more pics from the day. Grin

Seasons Greetings to All!

So this has been my world the past couple weeks:



BRONCHITIS!

 Shocked Cry

I'm still sick in fact. What I thought was a cold that I couldn't shake turns out is bronchitis. I've been sick since the end of November so I'm behind on just about everything including posting pics.

Backtracking a little, I was so amused by the giant leaf in the Subtropical garden. Namely because Florida IS subtropical and I have leaves very much like them right behind my apartment building! LOL



Then two weekends ago (Dec 10th & 11th) we had the show in Sarasota which required driving across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge four times. The first day it was a high wind advisory. That's pretty terrifying because you can feel your 2 ton SUV being pushed around as you drive over an infamous bridge a couple hundred feet over the water. Oh and the total span is over 4 miles long including the causeways leading up to it and after it!

More about the Sunshine Skyway: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunshine_Skyway_Bridge

I was driving so my husband took the pics with his cell. We were driving into the sun so the color is kinda crappy. Plus our windshield was apparently dirty!  Cheesy

On approach:


Cresting the top:


View of the other side stretching out before you:


Atomic Holiday Bazaar takes place inside the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium. My booth spot was up on the stage. My husband went up to the balcony to get some shots. He "zoomed" in on his cell for the second of me holding the visitors.


I took these two images of Alby and Splash looking out from the stage back towards the main floor and balcony where the other pics were taken.




Most of the time since then has been me being brutally ill and trying to get all the outstanding etsy orders made and shipped in time for Christmas. Hopefully we can get a few days of our own holiday squeezed in now and also hopeful my bronchitis will finally clear up the rest of the way SOON.

Last Sunday we tried to meet Adrian Paul from Highlander. Drove an hour out to Lakeland convention center and....he had already left for the day! Turns out, the "convention" was like 5 people standing around, six vendor tables and an event organizer who decided he wasn't able to pay the workers NOR the celebrity guests! D'oh! So..no convention photos.

Instead, we wound up wandering around the outlet mall instead. Saw a GIANT leather bear in the Coach store. My husband said it looked like a fetish bear. LOL



Few days ago we finally had a chance to go Christmas tree shopping. Though as of this writing we still haven't had time to decorate it yet!



Alby and Splash found LV sized tree but we couldn't bring it home  Cheesy


Last night I had a show at Great Explorations Hands On Children's Museum. I was in a playroom decorated like a farm. LOL






Tomorrow and Sunday we have a show down in Sarasota. It's a little over an hour south of me. It's technically outside of the Tampa Bay Area because we have to cross the (infamous) Sunshine Skyway across Tampa Bay to get there.

Another Saturday, another show! I have eight weeks back-to-back worth so it's a busy time for me. Today was what is normally my best show of the year. Unfortunately, it just wasn't anywhere near the crowds nor the sales I had hoped for based on the past two years.

So Alby and Splash took some time out to check out the historic Shuffleboard Courts! According to their website, Founded in 1924, the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club is the oldest and largest shuffleboard club in the world.

I had another show this weekend. Same location as last time so didn't get any new pics taken. I DID get interviewed by a local news channel. My LV's aren't in the clip but if you want to see me briefly in action, I put it on youtube: https://youtu.be/rZBV7iH2LbY

Alby and Splash DID get to hang out with my friend's new kittens the other day! They are SO tiny! She has two of them - a pair of calico sisters - but the other was hiding under the couch so I only got pics with one. Still though, KITTEN!! Grin

Yesterday, I was up at my Mom's house and we baked two pumpkin pies. Alby & Splash oversaw the process...



...and enjoyed seeing the yummy, finished results!




Today, I had to run over to the local mall so Alby and Splash got to see our indoor ice skating rink - something that always amuses me being in a FLORIDA mall. They had displays of painted dolphins up so we stopped for a pic with them and the rink in the background.





We also checked out the brand new ThinkGeek store that just opened today! They had a life-sized Iron Man in the entryway:

Tonight, we're working on turkey prep for tomorrow. It's just my husband and I so we're just making a small breast-only turkey but we'll also do all the fixin's too! Grin
