We survived !

It is now 44 warming to 70 this afternoon! I do not know how you in the North do it!
Yesterday we had a low of 24 and only a high in the 40's that is brutal for Florida! I stayed inside with central heat on, candles burning, hot coffee and hot chocolate reading and watching movies! I could do a few days of this,but not much more!

Cold and sunny today !

It was 27 at my house this morning, that is cold for us! At noon it is now 39 and windy so even though the skies are blue and sun is shinning, I will be staying inside today! I know it is a lot colder for most of you! So stay warm and safe!

Valentine's Day Weekend

It was 29 degrees when we got to the Grandson's soccer tournament but it warmed up to the 60's with sunshine, so it was a great day for soccer! Sunday we went to St. Marks and toured the Nina and Pinta, replicas of the ships used by Christopher Columbus on his voyage across the Atlantic in 1492.It was another weekend filled with "simple pleasures". I know that as Jim's COPD gets worse there will be a time when we cannot do these things,so it makes them all the more special!

Warm and sunny weekend !

The weather was beautiful in N. Florida this past weekend! Saturday was a birthday party at a local park and Sunday was a beautiful day on the St. Marks River. 75 and sunny is great this time of year! Today was rainy and later in the week it is getting cold again but that's o.k. if it was beautiful every day, we would not appreciate it as much!
