Yesterday......and then......Today



Yesterday started out ok....

Not much sun.....but....we got a nice long walk in....

After cooking a big fat brunch.....

Showering......

I looked out .......

And what did I see?



THIS!

What the heck happened?

The clouds got thicker and thicker............and thicker!

By 3pm......it started raining.......and raining......and raining....

And....




By 6pm......it was pouring.....and we were leaving to meet our friends for dinner.....

Geesh......just what my hair needs.....pouring rain.....and.....no umbrella.....

It poured all evening....





After dinner......we came back here....and laughed ourselves silly til 11 pm......

Now....

This is the sky this morning....

Same greyness......cold north wind.....crap!




This guy's hat was flapping around in the wind.....

He had it tied on for dear life!




Chilly.........brrrrrrr




These young guys gave it their all......to try and ride a few waves...







My crochet is progressing well......but very slow....I must say!

Can't find any more of the Lime.....but I still have some.....must plan my pattern out carefully...

Picked up some more grey....different shades.....go with that theme.....

Thanks for all your compliments....♥️




My feet are not as brown as I would like....

One more day....

Supposed to be sunny....but only in the mid 60's.....I know....I know....it's cold where you are!




Here is me.....looking out at the Gulf.....asking for some sun.....puuuuleeeese!

Such a saggy baggy face....oh well....la tee dah.....

              ***********

On the last menu tonight...

      The key word for tonight is CRISPY......

           Crispy coated roasted chicken thighs...

              Crispy roasted taters......

                Crispy fried onions, peppers and mushrooms...

            And.....of course...Greek salad....

           (My friend Nancy said that my Greek salad was the best EVER!)

                  Thanks Nancy♥️

Hope you all had a great day....

We hear there is brutal weather up north again...

Stay safe......and warm♥️

We will be driving thru a rough storm in Ohio on Sunday.....


                         Cheers!  :o)

  1. Oh my, weather not co-operating for your last few days ... but on the plus side it is still warmer there than it is here. Awful wind and blowing snow today, snow squalls overnight. I'm finishing up my afghan, just started on the edging. Hope you can work out your pattern so the lime green stretches though out the pattern.

  2. Now that really does not look like the Florida that I remember. It looks as if you could be passing my brother as he heads down, and you head back.

  4. I'm really sorry you've had quite lousy weather there. It's disappointing to go to a warmer climate and not really be able to get out and enjoy it. I hope the sun shines for you tomorrow and that you have safe travels as you hit the happy trail home. Yes, the weather has not been good in Ontario. Terrible whiteouts there today and lots of accidents I hear. I must admit the first two photos of those really dark clouds over the water are quite amazing. Hugs, Pam

  5. Even though the weather has not been great for you, your tan hasn't suffered. I think your profile is great!!

      Love the clouds! But they do look chilly, don't they? Who would have thought it would have been so grey and chilly in Florida for most of the month! Crazy all around, isn't it? We're supposed to get another ice storm over the weekend so drive carefully!

      Love your selfie! You were having a great hair day that day! No furry-ness at all! :) And you're still tanner than me. I glow in the dark. hahaha....

  9. Oh the clouds were low and grey but looks like you had a good old giggle! Isn't it wonderful in warm places that even the clouds are to be laughed at. You look fabulous and you can do the spray tan on your feet if necessary when you get home!

  11. Sorry you've had such bad weather ... it's not fair when you had planned and hoped for better ;-( The cottage and views, however, are gorgeous ... hope you reserved for next year. What's the adage about March ... in like a lion, out like a lamb! Before you know it the time will be here to open up your summer cottage and get that garden to sparkle again. SO LOVE the pictures of your flowers! Travel safe!! Linda
