Well today is the last day of the month so we have a few decisions to make.
The first one is whether or not we will head over to Vero Beach. Our reservation starts tomorrow. I need to discuss this with Squeaky’s doctor first. We don’t want to jeopardize her recovery. She seems to be improving and played a little last night. She is not sleeping with us though and is not “talking” much. She is named Squeaky because she “talks” all the time normally. She is eating real well, but I think a lot of that may be from the Prednisone she is taking. From what I’ve read, frequent meals are very important to help to heal the liver. She’s cooperating and eating just about everything in sight. She’s on a prescription food so I have to make sure she doesn’t eat anything else. She still isn’t quite acting like her normal self though, so I guess we’ll talk to the doctor later this morning, and then make our decision. He may want to test the bilirubin count again.
Our second decision is about the Sea Eagle kayaks. They have a $50 price (each) increase starting tomorrow. Inflatable Boats 4 Less are also offering a 5% discount which ends today. We could save almost $100 a boat if we buy today. We had hoped to be able to try them our first, but it looks like we won’t be able to do that. The Fast Track 385 is a fairly new model, and more expensive than the 330 or 370 models, so there aren’t as many of them around.
We have definitely decided that the inflatable kayaks will be much more convenient for our future full timing life style. They will free up more room in the truck for other things. They weigh about half of what we currently have and they store in a compact little bag. Right now, our kayaks are sitting on the ground beside the motor home. If we happen to pass by a kayaking place, they aren’t with us. The new ones will always be with us…just in case.
I was going through some old pics and came across these of the spring Wisteria blooms from last year. They usually bloom the end of March into the first part of April. I hear things are blooming early this year because it’s been so warm. We definitely want to be back home to see the Wisteria bloom. The blooms are beautiful but the fragrance is wonderful as well. Although we’re not anxious to get home, we do look forward to the spring bloom!
