We're a week into February, almost two weeks!  We're still here and just trying to stay warm.  I know ya'll up North have it worse than us, but Jim is not a fan of cold weather and it's a favorite topic of conversation...

Sonsearae and Chris brought this little frog home from Puerto Rico for me.  The coqui is the unofficial national symbol of Puerto Rico.  Beautiful!

At the beginning of the month we moved to our permanent spot here at Wildwood Golf and RV Resort.  A lot of other rigs were moving that day also.  Had to wait for our new site to be vacated and almost immediately the folks across the street, from Vermont, moved into our old site….then within a short time a motor home moved into their spot!  Others were coming and going too. It was a beautiful sunny day to make it easier on everyone.

The last two days we've had some decent afternoon temperatures.  So Jim tackled some chores outside.  We both took a walk around the campground. Jim put up a tray feeder and a wren was on it!  Hopefully I'll attract some birds.  Still need to put up the feeding station.  No bushes for birds to flit to...I guess I'll have to plant some.  I do have plans for making our site prettier but it will take time.

Jim got his hearing aids last week.  So far it's going well.  Obviously he hears better but getting used to an object in your ear, even if small, takes some getting used to.  He's also doing better with the cpap machine.  As far as sleep?  He still naps most days and is tired most of the time.  Does the machine work?  who knows.  But he uses it each night and sometimes we both get to sleep all night.

Handmade Cards because:

No one displays an email on the mantel
Shows off a tweet on the refrigerator
Saves a Facebook Post in a box of treasures

Total for 2022

Called a Stack and Shuffle these cards were made using 4 sheets of 6x6. All Stampin’ Up! Product. Decorated the envelopes too.

Crafty Al's Sheet Load of Cards Template.  Can't remember which month.  Again using Stampin' |Up! supplies

I'm trying to use up my stash!  I have a craft box full of pre cut, solid cardstock from many sources.  So this is an Out of the Box card.  The Pineapple and Aloha are from Stampin' Up!
