A Sunny Break

We had a few more items of my hubby's uncle and aunt that needed to be delivered to them so we took a little break down to Florida.  We left behind a cold, rainy, week to a week of warm sunshine.  Not quite in the 80's, but very close.  The retirement park they live in had a chicken dinner with dancing on Sunday, and I would be showing pics of that yet somehow I managed to mess up that video.  Then another morning we had the "big" breakfast.  Oh. My. Goodness.  I needed to leave the place just so I would not gain any weight!  We have never been there in January before so it was quite a change with the park being so full and very active.  Let me tell you the seniors know how to party!

We made it to what used to be a favorite place for us to go and eat lunch right on the beach.  It was not so good this time, but I will give it another chance as I enjoy sitting on the roof top.

Next was the beach, and who can go wrong with the glorious beach?
However, when I put my feet into it
Brrrrrrrr, yep, it is January! So, the solar heated swimming pool was nice.

It went by way too fast, but we did some things around the house there too like a new ceiling fan for the living room so it can be used during the summer months.  That was a gift to them since they really don't need anything, and had their fill of candies over the holidays!  I always plant flowers for them too as aunt loves them just as much as me.  I also brought a geranium and a fuchsia plant back.  Hey, I need a little color around here till the spring!  I am so ready for spring, are you?

Along came a.......

My Thanksgiving cactus bloomed beautifully this past Thanksgiving.  Practically for two months!  I had placed both of them during the summer in hanging baskets as my great aunt had done hers that way a long time ago, and my cousin still has them.
So one day I took them to the sink to give them a good dose of water, and when I went back to the sink later this is what I found....
A little frog!  Apparently he had made his home in one of the pots.  Sorry to say I had to place the little frog back outside, but at least it had a long time to bunker in before the year ended and this cold front arrived!    You never know what you will find when you bring plants in, and he blended quite well!
