Chilly Monday

The cool front arrived during the night, and windows had to be closed.  No sympathy needed, however, since it will warm back up today.  Our current 61 is still much better than 32 up in Mayberry.

P1030013So yesterday MM and I continued Joy’s and Cathy’s local tour to include a look at the Jupiter Lighthouse, lunch at Schooner’s (yum…Dan/Joan joined us for this), and a trip down to see our old family farm.Joy, Cathy toes in the water

But first we had to let the gals get their toes in the water (no a$$ in the sand, though).  MM is a Florida native and I lived here for close to 20 years, so we sorta forget that visitors like to not just SEE the ocean, but actually go IN it.  And so they did.  It was a beautiful day for the beach goers and boaters.

Joan and I put our leftovers together last night for a farewell dinner with Joy and Cathy.  They left early this morning, since jobs, kids and home beckoned.  Bugger.  They are already talking about coming back down next year.  Love it!

Life is short ...forgive quickly, love truly,
laugh uncontrollably...
and never regret anything that made you smile.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled laundry chores.  With a smile.

Life is good in paradise, y’all!  Happy Smiley Monday.

It's chilly here, too, but no snow so I'm good! :)

I do miss the ocean, but never enjoyed it in while I lived in Florida. Too much traffic and trouble to get to it and then no parking and tons of people = no fun for me.

Waiting to talk to Whitey's vet. He's bot doing well. At all.

Big hugs xoxo

Glad you've had a great weekend. That's very important. Wish we were closer and could come spend a week or so. That would be even more fun.

Oh no on Whitey. That boy is having a horrible time.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

We had a dusting of snow last night - beautiful here this morning in southern Virginia! Of course it's all melting away as I type. . . :-) Happy Monday to all!

You had me at lighthouse! One of these days I'll have to get back down to Florida to do some lighthouse searching. I'm pretty sure I won't find any covered bridges in the area but lighthouses are high on my list of favorites also!

Have a lovely Monday!

It's great that they were able to come visit! I really want to bring the kids down sometime, especially if we can go when you're there.

We had a great visit. :-) Sandy and Dick are wonderful tour guides! Just wish we could have stayed a few more days...but as Sandy said, duty calls. It was a long day on the road today but I'm grateful for a safe trip home and good memories.

I don't know, I grew up on the Jersey shore and I still rather swim in it then just LOOK at it.
