Its cold in N. Florida !

It sure has been cold in N. Florida! I was hoping that we would see a few snow flurries at our house this past weekend but it did not happen here. A few places in the panhandle reported seeing some. The children always love it when we get some and some of us big children also. My hubby came from Michigan so he does not enjoy it like I do but to this native Florida girl, I love it! This morning as I took my Granddaughter to school I passed a lot of frosty lawns and smoke coming from fireplaces. Its a lovely sight to me. I know those in the North who have problems with heavy snow do not like it and I do understand that it can be horrible for some. I pray that you are all safe and warm!

Another great weekend and winter has arrived !

It was a wonderful long weekend with our boating club and friends at the Henry Ford Museum in Ft. Myers this past weekend. A nice visit with Jim's brother and SIL in Zepherhills on the way home. We finally are having some winter weather in N. Florida. I had to scrape ice off the windshield 2 mornings this week and highs only in the 50's. I am not complaining, I actually  like it ! I am enjoying my new electric fireplace and sitting in front of it with a book and cup of hot cocoa. Another of my simple pleasures!
