For some reason, I just can’t get into the mood for Christmas this year. Maybe it’s because we’re planning on leaving for the Keys the day after Christmas and I’m excited about that. Maybe it’s because I’m just turning into an old scrooge.
Our Rv park is filling up little by little. A couple we met last year, Betty and Robert, have returned to their site right next door to us. We were glad to see them return. They were a fun loving couple. Many of the same people are returning to the same site this year. Something else we are learning about snowbirds.
We’re having wonderful weather here in Florida year. The day time temperature has been in the upper 70’s to low 80’s every day with night time temps in the upper 50’s to low 60’s. Boy is that perfect weather. I love those cold night time temps! More of the same is predicted. It’s quite a change from last winter when we got down into the upper 20’s one night. This is a “La Nina” year, which brings warm and dry temps to Florida. It’s much better than last years “ El Nino” patterns!
I came across a blog this morning with an interesting post I wanted to share. It’s on The Road Less Traveled and it’s about onions! Supposedly, onions can cure what ails us! It made sense to me, so I’m going to give it a try….providing the onions don’t stink up the house!
Al is a believer in the power of Oil of Oregano. He had read about it once and tried it when he was sick. He swore it helped him to feel better and get over his cold much quicker. I haven’t had the occasion to try it, but I will give it a try the next time I get sick. It’s very strong. He adds a couple drops of it to water or juice and I have to wash the glass right away to get rid of the stink! A half drop would season a huge pot of chili! It’s strong stuff.
Anyway, since it’s cold and flu season, I thought these were both worth reading about.
I got a new printer yesterday and now I have to get it set up. I finally broke down and bought a wireless one. It’s the Epson Small in One, printer, scanner, copier and it’s a bit smaller than most printers. It’s black, which matches my décor better so that’s also a plus. I bought it purely on size and color….don’t know a thing about how it’s rated! I read someone’s blog a while back and they bought one, so I decided to give it a try. It was on sale for $59, so the price was right. I don’t use a printer often, but this one will sit on the dresser in the bedroom and since it’s wireless, it will be much more convenient.
Al only has a few appointments today, so we’re going to do a little Christmas shopping, and go to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch. For those who haven’t tried it, it’s a wonderful restaurant. It’s a salad bar on steroids, with home made soups, pasta dishes, breads and of course salads and all the trimmings. Try it!
