Well we are certainly not in Florida any more. I had to dig out my winter jacket, knit hat, and gloves this morning. I was going to do a bit of yard work, but did not get very far. I have been so tired and feeling blah in trying to recover from the trip home.
Honestly, I think it would be better to take a slower trip and stop to sight-see along the way, but Mike is all about point A to point B. I think it is because he had so much driving to do when he was working, and in that case time was money. We are retired now. We have friends and family we could visit along the way, but he says things like, "That would take us 80 miles out of our way."
The house was pretty much as we had left it--except for all the dead cluster flies. I had to vacuum before we unloaded the car. ICK. Also there was the typical wind damage. I piece of trim was ripped off the shed and the chimney cap was blown off. I held the ladder for Mike when he climbed up to put the cap back on, but I hope he never does that again.
I have to get out to the grocery store and start restocking the cupboards. Again, general ennui has prevented me from taking that on.
We did spend some quality time with the Comcast people. We have the cable suspended for the winter. Mike's TV came back on just like it was supposed to, but my cable box would not work. I switched it out, but then could not get the new one to communicate with the television set. It is set now, but I will have to re-program my favorites. I have a list for the grandkids' to use when they visit, a list for movie channels, and a list of the HD channels that I might watch. There are those hundreds of other channels that I don't even want to flip through. I do miss the On-Demand feature when we are in FL. Actually, I wish we had DVR service here.
I also really am glad to have my NECCI sewing machine to use and the gas stove. There are things I miss abut Vermont. We have a nice new glass top electric range in FL, but I really do not see the attraction.
I think that the idea of a trip to the quilt shop is perking me up!
