Happy Days


I have re-adjusted my computer table so that I can look out the window.  I don’t know if that will work out.  I can see a clear blue sky and palms waving in the wind.  I have not gotten much writing done at all.


Yesterday was warm, but so, so windy.  I worked for a bit on my quilting project and made a trip to the library to restock my reading supply.



We joined some friends for salad and pizza supper and that was fun.



There was an article in a recent AARP magazine about healthy habits.  These included:
  • socialize
  • spend time out doors
  • take a nap
  • have sex
  • eat chocolate
  • drink a glass of wine or a bottle of beer.
I guess that our Florida lifestyle is a pretty healthy one for us then.  I try to work all those things into my week.

I can’t say I am missing the VT winters.  The romance of huddling by the fire while a Nor’easter batters the outside only lasts a short time.

  2. I too am enjoying some time in Florida -- going on three weeks now. I was starting to get homesick, until I found out we're getting a foot of snow today. So ... home can wait!

  3. Yeah the prospects of shoveling away 2 feet of snow has a way of taking the romance out of being snowed in. Afterward you can cuddle with heating pad.

    The brunt of that storm missed us thank God.

    The list of things that are good for you have improved over the past two decades.

  4. Especialy this week as that horrible storm comes on. Our winter has been relativey tolerable for this year. The cold weather has only been around a few weeks and just a few inches of snow. I like Florida, the climate, but no so much the culture.

    1. There are some things that you have to ignore no matter where you are.

  5. That list sounds good to me, too - maybe I'll do 2 things tonight - the chocolate and the wine.

  6. How nice that you will miss nasty Nemo. Hope your home in Vt will be OK.
    That view sounds conducive to daydreaming, not writing. Good luck.

    1. Very conducive to day dreaming, but I am quite relaxed.

    1. Our house in VT is not in a quiet location. I'll start to miss it in the spring...I do miss the grand kids. And my kids, of course.

  8. With the terrible weather VT is getting right now I bet you are extra glad to be in Florida!

    1. My son offered to save some snow for me. I told him not to bother as I do still remember it.

  9. That's quite a list! Today I've had some beer and chocolate, had breakfast with friends, spent a little time outside picking foliage for winter bouquets, I don't nap. I guess that leaves sex. Tom? :)

  10. We had such a big dump of snow! AARP has its issues, but this is a pretty standard guide.
    I feel healthy for shoveling the 100m driveway and back and front decks!
    Cheers from Cottage Country!

  11. I guess we will all have to move to Florida!

  12. We lucked out in the NEK and didn't get too much of Nemo (at last where I'm at in Derby). I found your blog because I was googling for other Vermont bloggers, and then just noticed you're in Venice, F,, where my parents live most of the year! Small world! I can't say that they miss the winters in VT much either, but they sure do miss the grandkids!

  13. You sure picked a good time to move down there :) I miss walks outdoors of late. Enjoy!
