Spring in Our Neck of the Woods

 It has been so pleasant the past few days.  Balmy breezes, reaching into the 80's during the day and cooling off at night.  No Rain!  Won't last long but I'll enjoy it while I can.  Already the ground water is heating up and from the tap we get tepid water.  We're giving the ice maker a solid workout!

As part of the Golf Course improvements they've built a Pro Shop, very small but they don't have a lot of room to work with.  Paving of sidewalks has gone in, they've brought in a lot of fill and they spend hours each day moving dirt and smoothing it out in the parking lot area.  Work is being done around the restaurant operating hours.  

As an early Mother's day present I finally agreed to get on the Apple Watch bandwagon.  I like the idea of keeping track of my health and being challenged to move a bit more.  I haven't warn a watch in years and never cared for it.  But I must say it's a fun toy for keeping me moving!  I do not wear it to bed.

For some reason, as part of improvements I suppose, the RV park has been trimming all the trees!  They brought in a bucket and started sawing of limbs quite high up.  Not sure if we'll have much shade left when they're finished.

Here are a few of my recent cards

Well, It's Been a Month of Sundays

 Since I've posted a blog!   I guess I should try a little harder.

We're just enjoying life in north Florida.  

Spring can be very interesting.  Several storm systems have plagued us the past few days.  The first one wreaked havoc in a wide swath (tornado)from Blountstown (where Christy and Rik live) all the way across to mid Tallahassee and eastward.  Sonsearae and Chris were in the path of what appears to have been two tornadoes that converged and made a mess!  Fortunately the trees down and damage at the Country Feed Store was minimal but the power was out and apparently Christy didn't have water for awhile.  Chris said it was nice that the tornado warning he received worked and he a Louie sheltered in place.  Their patio furniture was tossed around and their subdivision is a mess.  Trees down and debris everywhere.  

We are thankful our children are ok!  Now as for us, we lucked out being on the southern side of the system.  We were in storm, tornado and flood watches but it mainly rained a lot.  Across from us a  tree limb did fall on a car basically totaling it, but it saved the trailer from being hit. 

Two more systems rolled through back to back and we are are soggy.  Today we've had windows of sunshine and there's a balmy breeze blowing.

Time to dry out!  As our friend Ed likes to remind us,
