I said in yesterday’s blog that I planned on being lazy on Sunday, and that I wanted to get some writing done, but that was about it.
As it turned out, I accomplished nothing. Nothing at all.
Since we had been up earlier than what is usual for us just about every day last week, we slept in and then spent some time snuggling and enjoying not having anything we had to get up and do and no place we had to be. We really enjoy this special time of the day that is all about nothing but us.
Eventually we did get out of bed, and I answered several e-mails, including half a dozen from people that were recommending RV resorts or 55+ manufactured home communities that we might want to look at in central Florida. I appreciate everyone’s input, but if we are going to buy a lot or a manufactured home or whatever, it’s going to be close to the beach. I’m not sure which beach yet, but it will be no more than 15 minutes or so from the beach. I guess we could stretch that out as much as half an hour if we found the perfect place, but we’re not going to compromise beyond that.
The thing is, we don’t have to buy anything anywhere. We been fulltiming for close to 17 years now and we could continue to do it for many more years, as long as our health holds out. So it’s not like if we don’t grab something right now, all is lost. If and when we find the right place in the right community, we will know it.
Sometime in the early afternoon our friends Dave and Jean Damon stopped in for a visit. We have not seen them in a couple of years, so it was nice to get together again and catch up on what’s been happening in our lives since the last time we were here.
After Dave and Jean left, I opened the manuscript of my new Big Lake book, but I just wasn’t feeling it and I don’t write well unless my mind is into it. So instead I goofed around on Facebook for a little bit, looked at some real estate listings in New Smyrna Beach and a couple of communities close by, and that was about it.
Since we never got around to having breakfast, we had an early dinner, and then I went back to goofing off. I guess I was on a roll with it and didn’t want to break the cycle.
And, as I also said in yesterday’s blog, Miss Terry is like the Energizer Bunny. She never stops going and going. While I was basically being a waste of skin, she did several loads of laundry, made a delicious dinner, and later during the evening made these amazing strawberry cream puffs from scratch. And in case you’re wondering, they tasted even better than they look!
Congratulations Jane Selvaggio, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Chase The Rabbit, the first book in the Gretch Bayonne action adventure series by my friend Steven Thomas. We had 94 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon.
