Back from Hiatus….did you miss me?
Ha! That’s supposed to be an echo. Did I ever tell you that I have a warped sense of humor? No? Well, I have now! You should have gotten the idea if you had stopped by in the last four or five months. I had to use the picture of the little sparrow all dressed up as a “snowbird”….hehe
What have I been up to you ask? Not much! Ahhh…the life of a retiree. You don’t have to do anything if you don’t want to! The holidays came and went without any drama….that’s always good, right? I flew to South Florida and spent the month of January with my sister at her condo in Pompano Beach. My husband was there with us for a week or so before he flew back home to the cold Northeast. Next year, I think he’s decided to spend more of the month down south with me. After my husband left, my sister and I jumped in her car and headed north to visit my brother and sister in law.
They rented a house in a town called “The Villages“. It’s about an hour or so north of the Orlando/Kissimmee area. It’s a brand new community (I say brand new….it’s about 20 years old or so), and it’s very nice. While I was there, I made it a point to stop in a scrapbook store called She Scrapbooks. I did my part for the local economy, and left a pretty penny in exchange for lots of scrappy goodness :) We also went to Homosassa Springs and a quaint little town called Mount Dora for lunch and a little shopping :)
On the way back home, we stopped in Port St. Lucie to see dear friends that moved down to Florida several years ago. Phred and I were like two peas in a pod all through high school. It’s funny….Phred and I went to high school together…and my sister and Leo graduated together. Good people…good times.
After going out to dinner, my sister and I headed back to Pompano.
Let’s see….we went shopping, ate, and I spent lots of time crafting. I’m making things for the Orange Street Cat Rescue to sell at the craft fairs they participate in. A photo montage follows:
Oh…there are a couple more things that I can mention. We went to Butterfly World. It was beautiful!
Haha….I’m embarrassed to admit this…but I went “dumpster diving” at my sister’s complex. An older man was tossing cutains in the trash. I ripped off some of the pom pom trim :) I don’t know what I want it for,,,,,I just know that I want it. I know….I think I have a problem :) Next….I wouldn’t let my sister toss all of the old bingo cards because the bingo committee bought new ones.
Okay….I’m off to bed. It’s 2:30am here. Until next time……Peace
