Last Sunset......and Today..

Took these shots last Friday....

Our last day in Florida.....*sigh*....

We finally had a glorious Sunset that day...

Which was long overdue....

It seemed at least a week since the last one....


This is Dianne and Alan....

They are Canadians......but live here full-time....

They have a 2 storey place, right behind the cottage we rented....

They are really nice people....we enjoyed meeting them....

This..our last Friday....they came and watched the sunset with us...

And then took us out for dinner!!!

I had awesome chicken wings....HUGE....and meaty....

We all had a great evening....

Look forward to seeing them next year...♥️ forward to today....

This is the pile of snow on our court at home...

Geesh.....that will take forever to melt!

We arrived home last night....drove from Lexington Kentucky....straight thru!

Hideous ice storm in the mountains of Tennessee.....

I wanted my boyfriend to pull over......he was a real trooper....I couldn't even see the road...

This is the side of our house.....leading to the back yard!


All is well....

Everything unpacked....


BIG grocery shop....

Beautiful sunny day here....

First thing, I put my high boots on...

Housecoat and all....

Clomped out to the feeders...

And loaded them up...


Within a few minutes...

Mr and Mrs Cardinal came in....

Let me tell you....THIS made my day!

Of course....Red wasn't far behind....

Didn't bother taking a pic of him....perhaps tomorrow!

Hope you all had a great day....

I sure had a busy one!


Guess who?


Will be picking up....

Miss V!!!

Can't wait to see her♥️

 Enjoy your evening....

How many days 'til Spring?????


On the menu tonight...

   Roasted Pea Meal Bacon....Roasted Sweet Potatoes.....Fresh Asparagus....

                                  Cheers!   :o)

  2. "Welcome Home Linda". Glad you made it safe and sound. I'm sure the birds and Red are happy to see you back. Looking forward to seeing little Miss V soon. Deb

    1. Thanks Deb.....I think Red was especially happy!
      Can't wait to hug Miss V♥️

  3. So good to hear you both arrived have safely. Lovely sunset on your last day to give you lots of memories.

    Jane x

    1. Hahaha!
      You smart ass you! Love your comments!

  5. Glad you're safely home.
    The cardinals turned out to say welcome back!

    1. Yes....they did Jessica.....and it was great!

  6. I'm glad you got home safely, Linda. Going through an ice storm in the mountains would not be fun at all! Your last evening looks really beautiful with the sunset and time with your new friends. Have a great day tomorrow with Miss V. I'll bet you bought something for her. Huh? Huh? ;) Hugs, Pam

    1. Thanks Pam....oh, you bet I bought something for her!
      Buying for little girls is THE best!

  7. Wonderful photos ! I bet it was hard to leave that lovely weather there to come home to this cold ! It will be spring soon the animals and birdies are telling me so ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

    1. Yes Elaine....sad, but......happy to be home♥️

  8. It always feels good to get home and all settled in after a trip away, doesn't it? I'm sure the birds and Red wondered where the heck you'd been! haha.

    Enjoy Miss Vivian tomorrow! I bet she's excited, too!

    1. You got that right, Betsy!
      Tomorrow is vacuuming and dusting......a month's worth of dust! Ha!
      Red kept shaking his wee fist at he stuffed his face!
      Can't wait to see Miss V!♥️

  9. I'm glad you made it home safely. I thought of you with the snowstorm this weekend. Have fun with your girl tomorrow. :)

    1. Thanks was a scary drive.....for sure!

  10. Spring will be here soon, though my snowdrops are nowhere to be seen.
    Well, I'm hopeful anyway.
    Kind of wondering if the Great Lake will get a chance to thaw out before next winter arrives...

    1. They are hiding Martha.....getting ready to burst out and bloom!
      I sure hope Lake Erie thaws before next winter....geesh!

  11. Wonderful that you made it home safe and sound! It must be quite a contrast from one place to the other. From warm to cold! But it must also be nice to be home!

    1. On Sunday, it went from 17* -17*c......
      No kidding!

  12. That snow must seem SO extreme to come home to.

    15 days, 20 hours, 47 minutes until SPRING!

    1. Thanks for the info, Birdie....

  13. Glad you made it home safe and sound. What a sight to see all of that snow, after being in Florida! You last night looked like a fun night, and the sunset was indeed beautiful!
    Enjoy your Miss V tomorrow. I am sure she missed your like crazy.
    XO Kris
    PS What is pea meal bacon?????

    1. She is napping!
      She was so happy to see us! Warms my heart♥️♥️♥️
      Peameal is Canadian back bacon....very delicious!

  14. You made the journey home very quickly - I could feel the contrast between Florida and Canada as I looked at the photos. I started off feeling warm and ended up shivering!!!
    Have a nice day with Miss V.

    1. HA! Us too Rosemary!
      She is napping.....looks big!

  15. Good to see you back safe and sound. Admire your tanned toes while you can eh! I'm so tired of this winter...your posts just make the days go smoother! Give the birds and Miss V a big hug from your fan base. Following along with them also make the days go smoother!

    1. Thanks Dot!
      Always nice to see your comments!
      Will try and hug the birds! hahaha!
      I have been squeezing Miss V!

  16. WOW.

    i bet those hungry cold little birds and red missed you.
