Giveaways, Derby, And A Better Week Coming Up

I have just come off of one of those crappy weeks that can't seem to get better, no matter how hard you try and how many positive thoughts I kept forcing into my head. Part of the reason this has been so frustrating is that I returned from vacation refreshed and ready to go. You know, sometimes you come back and feel immediately that you never left. This was one of those rare vacations where I came home well-rested and full of happy thoughts. So much for that. Work was a never-ending craphole with everyone on their worst behavior and much spewing of venom and vitriole. We also learned that we will be extending our Saturday hours and not receiving any comp time for them. Between the ones of us that this affects we have theatre tickets, t-ball games, family and other business obligations and just the general need to have time off that will be compromised. I guess I'll keep my mouth shut and give thanks that I still have a job. Anyway, in the spirit of forcing this coming week to be better, here are a couple more vacation pictures that make me feel a little more mellow. This is the view from a friend of a friend's dock where we went fishing one night on the Intercoastal:
And here are the holey coquina rocks that form the wall along the intercoastal in this area:

And Travis McGee reeling in some kelp. He caught some very large kelp and other plant life but alas, no fish.
Now I'm feeling better and ready to tackle tomorrow. Stay tuned this week! I am going to give away a $25 Target gift card to a new follower and a copy of Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle to a commenter, both chosen randomly. Also this week I'm making my second round of laundry detergent and also making homemade yogurt. Sign up to follow and leave a comment. I'm in a generous mood!

I'M MISSING MY DEAR FRIEND WHO WORKS FOR SLAVE-DRIVERS!! What are your Derby weekend plans? My husband is having foot surgery tomorrow morning and I have to get up at 4:30 am to deliver him to the hospital. A VERY big nap will be in order tomorrow afternoon.
