It's the middle of May!

Where does the time go?  We're both still talking about Anne and Scotty and they left on the 5th....seems like yesterday!

We've not done much, just enjoyed the weather and each others company.  

Daily I attend to all the potted plants and I've picked two tomatoes and a couple radishes.  

Jim spends time outdoors just watching the birds and squirrels   It's nice that he's gotten to a point in his retirement to take the time off.  In the past he had to be doing something all the time!  Now days go by without him even looking at the truck let alone cleaning it.

We both spend time daily on our computers and keeping in touch with friends via emails or blogs. Some friends are visiting places we've been and it makes me want to revisit certain areas, I do like to travel.

Carol Reeves called the other day and we may see them later this year as they travel to south Florida for the winter months.  She and Fred are selling their 5th wheel and will be staying in a condo.  I say 'may' because who knows if we'll still be here in Welaka?  .....time will tell.

We had a front come through and the nights saw temperatures in the upper 40's and low 50's....I'm sure that's the last of cool weather.  After all this is Florida and as the year goes by the temperature should rise for the summer.  But who knows?  There's still snow in a lot of places!!!

Boo is having a rough time with fleas, which means we're losing sleep...how often can you give a monthly dose of flea medicine?  It's seems his wears off around three weeks or so.  Once he's bitten they die, but the bites cause him to scratch and lick (I think he's allergic to the bite).  Personally I think Florida needs more freezing weather to kill of these pesky bugs!

There is a drowsy state, between sleeping and waking, when you dream more in five minutes with your eyes half open, and yourself half conscious of everything that is passing around you, than you would in five nights with your eyes fast closed and your senses wrapt in perfect unconsciousness.  ~Charles Dickens
