MY LIFE AS A TURKEY REVIEW -PERMACULTURE IN NEW SMYRNA BEACH – ORANGES – MOM

25 11 2012

HELLO,

Several years ago I heard about a book by Joe Hutto called My Life as a Turkey.   I remember reading a great review of this book so I ordered it.  When I got it I could’t put it down.  It’s a great book about a man who found a pan full of turkey eggs on his doorstep and he had wanted to do research on turkys and decided that this was it.  There was no turning back for him .  Through my friend Deb I learned about the show on PBS called My Life as a Turkey .  I had lent Deb the book and she had enjoyed it as much as I did.  If you google My Life as a Turkey you will be able to watch it.   It’s really wonderful to hear in his own words the story.  Please don’t miss this wonderful  show.  Joe is now in Wyoming living with Mule Deer.  

PERMACULTURE IN DOWN TOWN NEW SMYRNA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today there was a Christmas Bazar on the Main Street in New Smyrna .  We decided  to visit it and the Farmers Market which was several streets over.  Right in downtown was this lovely antique shop with shrubs, trees and flowers all over the yard.  Little windy paths.  It had its privacy but was very inviting at the same time.  The shop was closed, I would have loved to visit  it and the yard.  It just proves that you can turn a very public yard into an oasis.

MOM

Mom is more alert today.  She got her new wheelchair which is better suited for her.  She will soon have a new hospital bed which she won’t be able to try to get out of.  Tormorrow we leave Edgewater and return to Orlando.  We will be staying at the airport hotel because we have a very early flight.  I hope to be back here for Christmas.  We wanted to take my Mom out for supper tonight but she must have heard they were having a spaghetti dinner and declined our invitation.

FARMERS MARKET

The farmers market didn’t have as many vendors as in the summer, but the spinners were there and it was nice.  

LOVELAND ORANGE GROVES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cindy and I stopped at Loveland Groves.  She needed to send some oranges and I wanted to get some to bring home.  I have been buying oranges from them since the mid 80’s.  You are never disappointed when you buy from there.  This year the oranges are exceptionally sweet.  Now they make their own orange juice.  It was so good.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.
