I AM Thankful For The SUNSHINE! / Furnace Issues And Life

Excuse me for the really bad photos but it was the easiest way to post them. We have had a WEEK of Gloomy Weather. Dark And Dreary Weather. Damp. This is Florida. We aren’t use to not having SUNSHINE most of the day. Every day. Danny is home so the diffusers aren’t running as much….

Thank You Florida! Fall Is Here!

The last few years, Florida has had much hotter weather. Winter never came. In January, we saw 90 degree temperatures. We were still While I am thriving, Danny is freezing . Of Course he has been cold all summer when it was in the 80’s here. The AC has only been off one day. Today…

Goodbye October: Hello November

Hello From Lake Kissimmee State Park And Rolling Meadows Ranch I have a question: Fall, where are you?????????? It’s been in the upper 80’s. A few days ago it was 89 degrees outside. That my friends is not AUTUMN. No ways near it. I have had trouble finding things to be thankful for this year….

I Am Thankful For An Awesome Event And Being Able To Rest Afterwards – Day 15

I was the go to person for getting everything set up at the park.
Our volunteer co-ordinator made arrangements for the actual event. I am very glad I didn’t have to. Sometimes it is nice to be in the background getting it done and not having to be the person in the spotlight. She dealt with All the media.
Even Danny was left out of most of it.
We got the BALL rolling and worked on it for 3 years behind the scenes.
It was wonderful though for it to be acknowledged officially.


I am tooting my OWN HORN HERE. I ROCKED TODAY. Danny and I Rocked. Lake Kissimmee State Park Rocked. YIPPEE. The Dedication Ceremony Is OVER. The Blueway Trails System has a NEW Paddle Trail. Danny and I can get a lot accomplished when we work together. It started with a DREAM of MINE…Danny liked it….

Not The Normal Way To Start The Day.

It’s almost 8:30 AM. Danny and I were out before the sun came up looking for a water leak. We knew it would be a good size one.There’d been enough time for it to come to the surface. So we started looking again. We had already spent hours yesterday looking. There are old water lines…

What Happens After Danny Comes Home 

We have some kind of snack.  Danny leaves to change his clothes. Lunch box gets emptied.  I unload the bucket of ice. Spilling the ice. Leftover hard blocks of ice go into  the freezer. Then we talk about the park. What happened that day. Much of which I already know thanks to the radio. Usually…

My Afternoon At Home Waiting For Danny To Get Home

Got Danny’s ice tea  ready first. I never know when he will come home early when it starts thundering and lightning. His tea : 2 gallon sized teabags in a 1 gallon tea pitcher.  NO LEMONS . No sugar.  STRONG. Mine : 1  maybe  2 regular tea bag(s ) if it’s real tea. Lemons /…

It Is Hot And Humid Out

Forget hot and humid. It is sizzling.  Saturday is suppose to be hotter. My view out the window today. What is that doing there? At least they moved it. It was right in the middle of the yard .  One of our deuce- in -halfs. 

Lazy Sunday In Our Neck Of The Woods

Hello from Our Neck Of The Woods  I am tired and hurting. We went to Walmart yesterday.  My ankles swell up every time. So I am doing as little as possible today.  Danny is off this weekend. He is napping now. Where is the  cat? Well he was here just a few minutes ago. Then…

Family Times In Our Neck Of The Woods- December 2015

TATA! Finally posting about Danny’s and my awesome Christmas and what we have been doing. Plus what we gave each other for Christmas.
