Zephyrhills, Florida (high 76, low 50)
We are enjoying a few days of cooler temps and low humidity. It was a cool 50 degrees this morning, but the sun is out and it’ll warm up nicely.
Unfortunately the humidity and warmer temps are on their way back. I like the temperature to be warm enough for no heat and cool enough for no a/c.
My “surgery” for my right eye is today. All it is is a laser that makes a tiny hole in my iris. I don’t expect it to be painful. I hope I am right!
Yesterday, we visited Mom a while then went to Sam’s Club and picked up a Shark Steamer Mop. Mom has had one for a while and loves it. I watched an infomercial the other night and decided I needed one too.
Sam’s Club had a nice one, but the cleaning pad is not your normal smooth micro fiber. It’s a bumpy type of pad, and I wondered if it would be as good as the smoother micro fiber padl. Half of the motor home has a shiny marble looking tile. I normally just take a damp towel and scoot it around with my feet.
Unfortunately, the thick bumpy pad on the steam mop, leaves streaks on my floor and it looks terrible. It’s going back today. I may get another one with a regular micro fiber pad and see if that works better. It’s a nice concept but with my shiny floor it has to be dried and shiny smooth. It would probably be fine on a different type of tile.
Well, I guess we’re getting hitch-itch too, because we’re dreaming of the Florida Keys again.
We already have reservations at Sunshine Key Rv Resort for two weeks starting March 21st. This morning I made reservations for another two weeks, so we will be there over a month. We can only stay there 14 nights, then we have to be out (or off the Thousand Trails membership) for 7 nights before we can book TT again. So, we have a week in between the two reservations where we might be homeless. Anyone know of a good homeless shelter in they Keys? Of course we’ll need full hook-ups! We can stay at Sunshine Key, I’m sure, but their weekly rate is $399…..yikes!
This trip isn’t going to cost us the same as last time, where we paid $3.00 a night. No…..this one is FREE! We get our first 30 nights free, so this is better yet. After the 30 free nights, it’s going to cost $3.00 for the rest of the year. If it wasn’t for that pesky week in between, we’d be in real good shape! We don’t know where we’ll go in the off week.
We’re not 100% sure we will be able make the trip, but we needed to make reservations, just in case. We need to make sure my brother is still doing okay, since he will have to take care of Mom. I guess it’s like any other plans….they are always in jello anyway!
Here are just a few memories from our last Keys trip.
We had such a good time and you just don’t find any better kayaking then the Keys!
