Not much to blog about

We've just been doing normal things retired people do.  We have our chores.  We read and play games.

Now and then we grocery shop.  Generally when this happens we combine trips.  Like Friday, I wanted to see the decorations at Palm Gardens Mall.  It's about an hour's drive from here.  This is what I call a Posh Mall.  When was the last time you saw a store for Jimmy Choo?  A lot of designer stores along with specialty shops.

We strolled both levels admiring the hanging ornaments.  The area where Santa was set up was really ornate.  I wonder if the children notice?

We stopped and had lunch in the mall at Brio Tuscan Grille, our holiday indulgence.  It was quite tasty.  Jim had Lasagna and I had crab cakes...we both had a salad and skipped dessert.

On the drive home we found some rain which was disappointing as the truck had been detailed the day before.  Between showers we stopped in at Publix for a few items.

Saturday was a stay at home day.  A cold front managed to get this south and it was blustery and cool.  When I got up it was 56 degrees.  We didn't do much.  Jim is still futzing with his new iPad.  We played games and watched TV...Dirty Dozen and Football later.

We're still dealing with mice and yesterday Chris loaned me an electronic trap.  You bait it with peanut butter, turn it on and it's ready to kill mice and rats.  Within a few hours we had a mouse!  Just checked and nothing overnight.  But I sure slept good last night without the sound of a critter under the bed.

All is right in our world
