Zephyrhills, Florida (high 83, low 60)
Al spent the day in Lakeland in a class and I spent the day home cleaning and straightening. These cabinets tend to get messy pretty quick so I did some organizing and tossing!
I have decided that the steam mop doesn’t work on our shiny tile floor and it’s going back.
I shampooed the living room carpet…again. It sure manages to get dirty fast. What were they thinking putting carpet in the area where you have to walk right in from outside. I guess we need to start taking off our shoes each time. If I could just muster up the enthusiasm, we’d remove the carpet and install Allure flooring…..just can’t seem to forget how much work it involved the last time.
We visited with our neighbors for a few hours last night. They live on the island of Newfoundland. How interesting to hear about such a far off place. It cost them over $400 to get their motorhome off the island, via the ferry. This ferry is so large that it holds 150 motor homes. It’s a 6 hour ride.
They live out in the country and routinely see Moose on their property. A while back a mother Moose gave birth to twins and they grew up on their property. How cool would that be. They are going to look for the photos to show us. Seeing a moose is one of my top things!
They drive 2600 miles to spend each winter in Florida. That’s a long and expensive trip for them.
I had to Google Earth Newfoundland just to see exactly where it was. I knew that when you got up to Maine, you kept going, but that was about all I knew.
Where they used to live, they would look out their kitchen window to see an iceberg and passing whales.
You can occasionally see whales in Florida, but not too many icebergs!
