Busy as a little bee…

Life got hectic in the short month of February and as you can see I only posted twice…not exactly my goal with this new blog but there never seems to be time in each day to do much of what I would like. Working a bit far from home sees me getting up very early and then getting home too late to get very creative. My mornings consist of taking the bus to Sarasota and hoping I don’t get hepatitis or something awful like that. It’s a different world when riding the city buses between Bradenton and Sarasota. I’ve snapped some photos with my iPhone during my travels to work each morning. Here are some of the urban shots I’ve been able to get:

A mini walk from the bus brought me to one of my favorite places in Sarasota, Simply Spoiled Boutique.

What’s left on Main Street of the old European Focus Village Shop…I miss that place…

Across the street during my short walk was the historic Kress Building.

This week promises to be interesting as well as I embark on a journey abroad to England. I look forward to posting from there and hope that it will be more frequent this month. Tomorrow is busy for me but I hope to get a trip to the museum in before heading across the pond.

Here’s to a beautiful week!
