Oh how I love Florida, in March. This scene is just an hour drive from my home and I can’t get enough of it.
Last week Kevin took the day off. We slept in late and then headed to Bradenton Beach. We ate lunch at a place called Rotten Ralph’s on a lovely pier. Afterwards we found a spot on the beach where we ended up getting bit by sand fleas. After a couple minutes of that, we packed up and found a different spot where there was more wind and less fleas. After not being out in the sun since our cruise last year, I ended up getting a little more than I had hoped for. And of course it’s spotty burn. I can never manage to at least burn normal as hard as I attempt to put the lotion on even.
The water was beautiful but still a little too cold. After a couple of hours we headed to the condo that we stayed at last year for our anniversary. We wanted to swim in the pool but that water was still too cold as well. . . so we headed home. For some reason I grew up “hating” Florida, but in the past few years we’ve made amends. In a couple of months during the middle of summer I might be saying something totally different. But for today, I love that I can hop in the car and drive an hour to spend the day at such a beautiful place. It’s the best!

This week has brought much better health for me. For a while there I thought I was going to have a permanent cough. Last week was mostly spent on the couch watching way too much television. Actually, most of it was spent in bed because I hardly had enough energy to make it to the couch. I am SO glad it’s gone. As much of a homebody I am, I absolutely hate having to stay home. This week I’ve already been able to accomplish most of what was not done last week. The entire house (and some) is clean, I was able to go to a kick boxing class at the gym on Monday, I went running yesterday, and actually have a fridge full of groceries today. It feels good. Today was deemed a “rest” day, at least as far as exercising goes . . . but since Kevin was out working on computers tonight I decided to go for a bike ride by myself. It was just too perfect outside to not enjoy it. I hope tomorrow is the same. Kevin has taken the day off and we are headed to the beach. I love our random mid-week trips.
Soo, yeah that’s that. Life is full and incredibly good right now!

This song cheers us up at work every Friday, so I thought maybe the ritual in our office could be passed on to somebody else! Finally Friday by George Jones. It’s worth the $1!
