Fun in Florida!

Did you miss me?  We just returned  late Wednesday evening from a bit more than a week in Florida  and are almost back in our time zone. Choir last night helped!  It was hard not to think of what time it was in Florida though.


We saw a few beautiful sunsets, 


had fun with relatives and friends, (Can you guess which one is my sister?)


went to the Mote Aquarium in Sarasota, (Did you know that manatees consume 72 heads of lettuce every day?)


saw some wildlife, (Do you think this bird is going shopping?)





and visited my aunt who's recovering from a stroke in mid-January.  We had a great time, but it's really good to be home!

Yes I missed you!!! Doesn't look like you missed us though - you were having a great time :*) It is always good to be home though, isn't it? I could use some Sarasota weather right now - we are expecting zero and below this week - brrrrrrr!!!!! Maybe even some accumulations of snow by Monday morning.

Hello Judy...lovely to hear from you today! Looks like you're still having fun travelling (I was going to say 'galavanting' - do you use that word? :-)
How lovely to be somewhere warm, lucky lady.
In reply to your question....I am pretty much on the FODMAP diet and have been to see a nutritionist. Thank you for thinking of me! xx
