Soaking and Other Stuff

I would like to say that we have been so busy here in Florida that I just don't have the time to blog. But that is not entirely true. The reasons for not blogging  are many and I stand behind every one of them.

First off is the fact that we have both been sick for the last 10 days. That really sucks. I got sick on Sunday the 29th of January. Not the puking, pooping flu but more of the chills/hot flash, body ache type of flu. I coughed so hard and for so long that my entire stomach muscles hurt every time I did it. Then as I slowly got over it Lisa caught it. We knew it was going to happen because of our small living environment. But we are both feeling better now.

Second reason for not blogging is the fact that it so damn nice here. We will have our coffee outside in the morning. Then go for our morning walk and then enjoy the day outside. Soaking up the sun or just lounging under the awning. Happy hour arrives early when it is so nice out.

Lisa has turned into the "Cat Whisperer". Stray cats are all over in the park and Florida in general. Most shy away from human contact but there is one that has finally warmed up to us. She is so sweet and friendly for a stray cat. We call her Peanut. Whenever we are outside she will come over and visit us. Our cats no longer hiss at her. Moose will just sniff her and then he doesn't care anymore. Journey is just indifferent.

Things we like and don't like about central Florida. There is a lot of crime here. So much of it is just random violence. The traffic is horrific, especially on I-4. I-4 is also under construction and will be for several years. We just purchased a Sunpass to avoid it as much as possible. A Sunpass is a transponder for your vehicle so that you can go on the toll roads without stopping to pay the tolls. It is linked to a credit card so it pays automatically.

Things we like are obviously the warm weather. More beach days are in store for us now that we are feeling better. So that is our life in a nutshell.

"Happy Hour!"

    1. You would know since you are so many more years older than I am. I am glad that you finally got that Viagra prescription. Did you use the AARP discount?

  2. It sucks being sick! One of the disadvantages of chases Spring for us is that we are always hitting allergy season. Sniff! Sniff! Cough! Cough! Love that Lisa is a cat whisperer too! They seem to seek us out in campgrounds as well. So glad that you are feeling better and enjoying your time. Sunshine and warm weather certainly helps the body heal.

    1. Lisa is in love with the weather. She cannot say no to any furry friends.

  3. Glad to hear you guys are on the mend! Being sick - especially in such a great place - is awful!
