Dreaming Of Beaches

I woke up this morning after dreaming of this place...

GulfIsland


Then I realized that one year ago today, we were there, enjoying the warm sunshine and the sound of seagulls.
Sigh....this morning we have the heat running to take the chill out of the house in this abnormally cold weather we've been having.

The good news is, it will be 70 degrees today, and each day is supposed to keep warming up till Wednesday when it finally hit's the normal of 80.

The way I figure it, in two weeks from today, we should be on that very beach working on our tans and even more important, working on our R&R. :0)

More good news, this is perfect yard work weather and the kids and I took full advantage yesterday when we bagged up 21 huge bags of nasty dried up oak leaves.
We got more to do today and by next weekend hopefully we can start some serious flower planting. I am craving those pops of color only flowers can provide. lol!

So yesterday as we were mid into that yard work, something, or should I say "some one" popped up in the sky.
You won't believe it, so stay tuned for tomorrow when I let you all know who came to visit Leesburg, Florida. :0)

Have a beautiful Sunday!!

PS. No, not in our yard but they do grow right across the street and pretty much all over the place. Orange trees grow everywhere and during the winter months, because we have an orange juice plant in our town {just down the street from us now}, the scent of freshly squeezed oranges is in the air everywhere. :0)

We have a bread baking facility less than a mile from us. Not fair to be mowing the lawn and drooling with the bread smells. Have a great Sunday!

Hugs!!

You were dreaming of beaches...and I was wishing I was at one!! :) Today it is a BALMY 40-45 degrees in Upstate New York. I actually thought of you, Kim, when I went grocery shopping. Yes, there's tons of people out walking. Yes, there kids in shorts and t-shirts (crazy kids that they are). But the one that really got me, and I live here, is the lady with her top down on her car. I thought, "You've got to be CRAZY!". Even though it's nice and balmy it sure isn't warm enough to put the top down on our cars yet! Show what Cabin Fever does to folks up here!!! :] I can't wait for a 70 degree day!!

Hope you're enjoying your afternoon.

Ahhh, I dream of 70s & 80s...we're supposed to have mid 40s here this week. The vision of planting flowers (and no more snow) made me smile!! Have an awesome week!

We were at Flagler Beach this weekend, still chilly in the wind but so worth it, charged up my mental batteries so I know how you feel about the place you were dreaming about. I got some neat pelican pictures this time. Soon, my friend, soon it will be warm enough for your weekend water trips. You'll have to remind me sometime exactly where it is you go, we'll come out and meet up with you one of these times. Love ya, CJ
