Yesterday was pretty much a repeat of the day before. Terry started stuffing envelopes and worked nonstop all day long, and I wrote. By the time we called it quits late in the day, the back end of our Explorer was loaded with bins of envelopes ready to drop off at the mail service Monday morning, and I had another 4,000 words done on my new book. So we both got a lot accomplished.
Yesterday evening we heard a commotion and looked outside to find that they had a golf cart parade going on, so we stood in the doorway and waved and exchanged holiday greetings with the folks as they drove by in their decorated carts.
The Orlando Thousand Trails preserve has always been a favorite for Terry and me. This will be our third Christmas here. We don’t really use many of the facilities of a campground, like the activity center or pool, and we’re usually too busy to take part in things like potluck suppers or playing bingo. But we’ve always liked the layout of this RV park, the many choices for shopping and restaurants locally, and paddling our kayaks on the big lake here.
However we both were surprised to find that, after staying at Three Flags in Wildwood, we’re looking forward to getting back there. It’s just more laid back and not as hectic. This park is busier this year than we’ve ever seen it, and maybe that’s part of it. We still like it here. It’s just that we’ve found that we like Three Flags even better.
A few subscribers seem to have had a problem opening the link to our digital issue this time around, and while we were able to get them taken care of, a reader suggested that instead of posting a link to our website where the new issue is uploaded, why not just send out the PDF file as an attachment. It usually runs between 6 to 8 MB, sometimes a little bigger. Any comments from our digital subscribers? Is this worth looking into?
Today will be more of the same – stuffing envelopes and writing. Gee, we’re getting boring, aren’t we? But it’s better than being out at any of the stores fighting the mobs of Christmas shoppers. Are you ready for it to be over yet? I am. Bah humbug.
