Not a Lot of Pictures...





But lots of tropical foliage and...

Lots of fun!


I got home a little while ago. I've got unpacking, mail to read and need to get myself organized for a busy week. But I wanted to make sure and say hello before getting chores done and extend the long weekend just a little longer.

I had a great time. The weather predictions were totally wrong. There was rain yesterday morning, but otherwise it was sunny and in the low 70s. It was perfect weather for open toed shoes, and I enjoyed wearing them. We had some great meals out, including a fabulous Sunday brunch. We had a fun shopping expedition and Saturday afternoon was spa afternoon. Blissful!

Besides the "special" events I enjoyed chatting, laughing, watching television together, times that were very ordinary but equally special.

Tomorrow I go back to work, commuting and days that can be less fun, but the memory of this weekend should carry me for quite awhile. I'm going to catch up on all the blogs I've missed in the next few days and tomorrow night I'll announce the winner of the cookbook.

Wishes for a great week!

Hope you soaked in all that nice weather to carry you through the rest of winter. I think we all could use a good does of sunshine and warmth.

I love the flora and fauna.

It's supposed to be 79 here tomorrow. I hope so! I miss the "open toed shoes" too...

What lovely pictures and a such a treat for the eyes. All our snow is now in big crusty piles and dirty slush. My car is a mess but there's no point in getting it washed since it will just get all grungy again. So Florida is a beautiful change.
