Hope you are all having a good start to the week! I am trying to find things locally that will help you where you live and where you are looking to live. I saw this and thought I would pass it on for those living in the Florida Panhandle and are farmers. There will be a meeting to explain the Disaster Bridge Loan program and the Sales Tax Refund Program. This will be a great opportunity for farmers to learn about the programs from the agency representatives who will administer them. The meeting is going to be held at the UF IFAS Extension Office in Jackson County. It is located at 2741 Penn Ave suite 3 in Marianna. Wednesday May 22nd at 7pm.https://floridadisasterloan.org/
Did you know May is Electrical Safety Month. Not an exciting subject but a necessity. Here are a few safety tips for your home.
~Replace or repair damaged power cords and be sure to not plug a bunch of stuff into one outlet or extension cord.
~Don’t overload your outlets.
~Be sure to correctly label all fuses, circuit breakers, and switches in power box and replace damaged ones.
~Don’t yank an electrical cord from the wall, it can damage the plug or the outlet.
~Make sure all electrical cords are tucked away, pets could chew on the cords and people could trip and fall over them.
~And don’t forget to test smoke alarms in your home(every month) and change the batteries(twice a year). Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home.
Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. I am not sure I sat except for when I was driving from point a to b. I missed this when I was posting about all the events in the area but luckily they are doing it today as well. The TA travel centers of America in Marianna is having fun for the whole family. Sunday from 12pm to 3pm. Games, prizes, and food. I also heard the VFW auxiliary will have a table set up and is asking for you to stop at the table for a free gift!
There are SO many things going on Saturday in the area I thought I would post about it tonight so you could plan accordingly. Not sure what all I will be attending except for sure I will be at the Tractor Supply in Marianna. Be sure to read under each photo for more about that event. You can also find more information about each of them on FB or possibly by googling it. If I have a website I will be sure to post it as well. I love our area. All these things to do and so many more that I haven’t heard about!
I wish I didn’t have plans already tonight. This looks like so much fun! They will have booths with over 28 painters, glass-blowers, creators, jewelry-makers, photographers, and more. They will have live bands as well as a classic car show. Over 50 hot rods and classic cars will be available for you to see as you walk among the booths tonight from 5 – 11pm. Be sure to check them out. From what I have heard it is a monthly event in downtown Pensacola. Held on the 3rd Friday of every month. Their mission is bringing arts to the streets.

It seems like a day doesn’t go by here in the panhandle when something fun isn’t happening. Jeep Beach Jam is officially kicking off tonight in Panama City Beach, however they have been there since Tuesday with fun activities. You don’t need a jeep to attend the events that are happening till Sunday. They are expecting 3,000 to 5,000 people this year. And it looks to be a beautiful weekend for it. If you are heading out don’t forget the sunscreen! The have a day at the beach planned where you can learn to surf. They have a scavenger hunt, poker run, beach bonfire, jeeps-only drive in movie, an obstacle course, and live music to name a few things they have going on. I have included the website below so you can check out times and location. Have fun! http://jeepbeachjam.com/
Well, somehow I missed blogging yesterday. I hope you all had a good Tuesday! I wanted to share about this great place a group of realtors went last week. Capt. Anderson’s Marina is on Lagoon Drive in Panama City Beach. I have added the weblink on the bottom of this post so you can click and check them out. The marina offer’s something for everyone, deep sea fishing trips, romantic dinners on the water, sightseeing, and trips to Shell Island. Shell Island is 7 1/2 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. It is a barrier island that sits at the mouth of the bay. This is a must see for locals and visitors alike. I have been here several times and every time is fun, relaxing, and I walk away with a different story!
Hope your weekend was full of relaxation. We got a lot of rain at my house, but it was much needed rain. I love how this time of year everything is blooming. On Saturday I took my food donations to the Greenwood post office, I thought my donations were a little much to leave for my mail carrier. James Wyatt was awesome! He even let me take his photo. I love our small towns here in the Panhandle. I went to the Marianna Farmer’s Market and got lots of great vegetables and a few plants too. Everyone was so nice, I need to remember to go here more often. They are open Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7am to noon till June. I love that I got an excuse to tell me mom how much I love her on Sunday. A mother’s love is a special one.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there. Fur babies, infant babies, and grown babies all count! I hope you realize how important you are in your child’s lives. One day is not enough for celebrating the love of our mothers. But we can make this one day the most special day. I know my mom is so important to me. As we grow old together I will always be my mother’s little girl!
If you are like me you need a reminder to put those non perishable food donations out for your mail carrier this morning! I remembered at 11 last night to collect the food, but thankfully I was awake and working for my clients like usual! Today I am going to make my first stop at the Marianna farmer’s market. It is open from 7am to noon at the Madison Park. Then I think I will swing through some yard sales and look for some great deals. Enjoy your Saturday and don’t forget tomorrow is Mother’s Day, not to late to grab a card if you haven’t done so yet. It looks like a lot of us are in for a chance of rain this afternoon, so if you have yard work like me I hope you get it done before it gets to you!
