Let's Get Ready To Ramble

I do plan on doing a long post--or several posts--about our vacation, but that won't be happening until I get the pictures organized. So, I will just do a rambling post right now.

----------

One of my favorite parts of our trip was my being able to feed birds every morning. I would go out of the back door and several birds would come up to the lanai/pool area for food. It really was a highlight for me. I'm SUCH a dork.

----------

We really have been quite lucky whenever we go to the warmer climates for vacations. The weather in Florida was JUST to my liking for the most part--temps around the 70 degree mark. Only two days were around 80--TOO warm for me--and a couple of days actually could have been warmer than they were. I guess February/March is a good time for Florida, just as October was the right time to go to Las Vegas.

----------

And speaking of Las Vegas...K wants to go back. SOON. I think I may be going to Sin City next month--at least if K has anything to say about it. There are such fantastic deals going on right now that it would be a shame NOT to take advantage of them. Another vacation so soon--just HOW can I manage! ;)

----------

Looks as if we might be getting another winter storm. Right now they are calling for strong winds and heavy snow tomorrow night. We could be getting five or more inches before things are done. Yippee!

----------

While we were in Florida, we had to hire a cat sitter. Pretty darn good, we are empty-nesters and yet we STILL had to pay someone to sit for us! Anyway, the girl didn't see the cat the entire time we were gone--I told her she didn't need to search every day. By monitoring the amount of food that was eaten, the sitter knew the cat was living, so... I think the cat lost weight while we were gone, despite the fact she never stopped eating. I have ALWAYS thought she would never survive if she couldn't be with us anymore--poor baby.

----------

Things are getting back to normal around here: K begins overtime tomorrow. I don't know how long this will last, but I have a feeling we won't be making a road trip anytime this month! At least he is smart enough to quit working the overtime whenever he feels as if he's burning out--then he takes off a few days and recharges.

----------

I pretty much came home with a whole new wardrobe from Florida--I bought 10 (11?) new T-shirts! I got shirts from just about everywhere we went: from Disney World to the Kennedy Space Center to the Hard Rock Cafe to the House of Blues and all places in between! I will do a photo array and post it before too long. My T-shirt drawer now has Red Wing shirts, shirts from Florida, and concert T's--what more could someone want?

----------

And speaking of the Wings... (As if I could do an entire post WITHOUT speaking of them!) It is now just a little over a month till the playoffs begin and I am NOT optimistic about how far the Wings will go. They still are having problems with the 'D' and the goal tending is quite mediocre. With losses like they had two Saturdays in a row--and the fact they gave up 8 goals each time--they have a LOT of work to do in very little time. I REALLY have my doubts that number 12 is coming to Hockeytown--but I MAY be wonderfully surprised! I can only hope.

----------

As far as upcoming trips, I'm hoping we will be going to the twin cities in June. Not only do I want to see A and her husband, but Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood will be in concert at the Xcel Center on the 18th! K hasn't said whether we will be going or not, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. How great would THIS concert be!

----------

And to finish up, I am posting the picture that I am using as my desktop wallpaper these days:


Yep, that is my Baby Boy! Isn't he absolutely adorable? {sigh} And he is so very, very young. ;) (Looks like his nose has been broken at least once, right?) Quite the typical Finn he is--with amazing blue eyes.

I'm looking forward to your t-shirt collection photos!

you think 80 degrees is too warm?? I'd kill for 80 and over right now-we had a mid-70s day yesterday and had the windows open. Today it's back to sweats and the furnace.

That's a cute kid you've got there!

That reminds me, I still have to TAKE the pics of my T-shirts! ;)

I just don't do warm weather well. I find 68 to be ideal for me. Yeah, I know there is something wrong with me. ;)

One of these days I will actually get to see my Baby Boy in person--hopefully I'll get close enough to see if he really IS that adorable. It certainly looks as if we won't get to a game till NEXT season. Oh, well.
