Happy New Year!

Presenting fireworks from the St. Augustine Beach Pier.

A Little "R and R"

We've been here at the KOA campground on Anastasia Island (St Augustine Beach) since Wed afternoon. Very nice KOA situated about 3/4 mile from the beach. Easy walk to the beach. Found a restaurant (Sunset Grill) with yummy burgers on our walk yesterday. The walk back to the campground was not as easy as we had eaten too much! Headed back to the beach and the pier this afternoon for the New Year's Beach Blast. Brought the "babies" (our two new kittens) with us. Their first outing has been successful so far though they weren't overjoyed with the ride over. We will be here until Sunday then it's back to the daily grind. Boohoo!

Turn on the heat!!!

Oh, where oh where did Florida go? It had to have moved while I was busy doing the last minute Christmas prep! 35 degrees is not normal. I'm tired of moving plants inside every couple of weeks and I'm beginning to run out of layers. On the bright side we're not having to deal with snow and all of the problems it brings. So I guess each cloud does have a silver lining.

Merry Christmas!

It's hard to believe another Christmas has come and gone and in almost a blink of an eye. I wonder . . . will it rush by so fast when I'm retired???

We did have a very enjoyable Christmas. Christmas Eve was spent at our house with Mike, Mindi, Chris, and Sarah and Christmas Day at Mindi's house with Bob's family. Lots of tasty food and pleasant company. Plus some pretty nifty gifts!

As both Bob and I are off next week finishing the shower renovation is at the top of our "to do" list. On Wednesday we will be headed to Anastasia Island for a little, well deserved, R and R.

Have a healthy and prosperous New Year!
