F is for Florida..........

Hi from the sunshine state, has been a little cool here but nothing compared to cold Ohio. It will be in the 70's and the sun is shining, what more can I ask for at the end of Feb. Charlie and I have been staying in a motel, not real happy with it so we rented a little cottage. We will move in next Monday and I will be more then ready for another little cottage to enjoy for a month.

The Villages Fl is a rather big area with around 60,000 living here. It is an over 50 retirement area where we lived as winter snow birds for 8 years. I told you the story on how we retired here and now we come each year and rent for a month or two. It is the least I can do for my man (Charlie) after I dragged him back to cold Ohio. Anyway all is well here, he is golfing and playing pickle ball ,I got him to go to the movies 3 times with me and that is a record for him . We went to the town square Tuesday evening I took a few pictures. Above is a picture of a cottage like the one we will rent for the month.

A dog with a mask in a buggy, and he loved dressing up for the occasion. how cute is that? Now I am wondering wharf I should give up for Lent. I think I can give up choc late and candy for 40 days and still live. It will be hard to do for me but I can do this. Also exercising every day.......When I get back to Ohio I want to be 10 lbs, thinner. I will keep you up on how I am doing with this venture. It has taken me two days to find out how to upload pictures on my computer. I had to go and bye a Vista book for dummies.......If I had it to do over, not sure if I would have gotten this vista thing. I now have to go and visit a few blogs, I will be back soon. Love you guys.......................Sharon K

I was wondering if you were going to be posting once you got to Florida! Sounds like you're really having a wonderful time.

Oh, that cottage looks adorable! I bet you will love staying there.

I don't blame you for wanting to get away from all this cold and snow! I am so sick of it.

Good morning dear Sharon:-)

So good to sit down and have a little visit with you! I'm sure you're now all settled into your little rented cottage? How wonderful to be in Florida at this time of year...we have so much snow here and the temps are absolutely frigid so I really wish I was over there with you:-)

So happy that you got yourself a new computer as well! I just bought a laptop with Vista on it and I'm loving it.

Love you! xoxox

What a lovely cottage. Be sure and send us pics of the one you get.
It is sunny and bright here today, but still cold.
Have fun, and don't worry about the chocolate, it's good for you..!

Sounds like you are having a good time. Learning to be a "techy" is not always easy, I know. Good luck with that. Cute cottage to live in for a month, though.

Have a wonderful day,
Kitty
