Everyone Needs More Sunshine on a Cold Winter Day...

So why don't we take a trip to Key West?

My  blog friend Robyn at Putting Pen to Paper suggested a trip to the Florida Keys, where she grew up. I love Key West and have had the good fortune to be there four times. Twice, including last winter, were single days spent as part of cruises. In fact, the motto of this blog, "Sometimes you get the frozen key lime pie..." was inspired by my visit last winter.

It's been relatively mild in New York City -- compared to much of the rest of the country -- but I always enjoy a visit to Key West, even if it's virtual. And I know my friends in the midwest and south definitely need some warmth and sunshine. We'll have a piece of key lime pie, see the Hemingway house and enjoy the sunset sitting on the dock. Sounds like a great day to me!

Hectic work days, and I am so glad it's the weekend. Wore my pedometer all week. There are times when I would look at the number and realize somehow the pedometer had reset itself and thousands of steps had been lost, which was disappointing. But lost steps or not, I am so pleased to have worn it for a week. My total for this week was 28,312 steps.

Warm wishes for a wonderful weekend!

Key West sounds wonderful! Congrats on your steps. I've never found a pedometer that DIDN'T somehow magically reset itself. I'd buy one that didn't if I could find one.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Loved Key West. We had the frozen lime pie on a stick DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE. Life is good.

The only trips like that are virtual ones for me. When the weather warms up in April I'll be headed for my camper in the woods and will be there off and on til October but that is about it for most of my traveling. I did enjoy the pictures today!

A healthy dose of Key West is just what the doctor ordered. I'd like a precription stating that please!

Bet your sidewalk McD's has the mocha frappe's. Give 'em a whirl!

I sometimes have to wonder about the pedometer but nevertheless if it says 28 thousand plus steps then you did great this week! This is very encouraging to me. I need it as I am looking at the See's candy I received for Christmas. LOL
Warm hugs, Sue
