Great food, Great weather.

A couple days ago Wilma and I went to the local Wal-Mart's to do some grocery shopping. We found “garden fresh” tomato’s and couldn’t resist getting some. Fresh from the garden tomato’s in January in Michigan just isn’t heard of. We all know what those “other” want to be tomato’s from the hot houses taste like.

So that evening this is what we had for supper.

Garden Fresh tomato's in January!

Man O Man were those BLT’s tasting good! What a treat it was for us to have such fresh tomato’s in January.

This morning we sat outside under the awning drinking our coffee, when we remembered that the Park was having a Coffee and Donut gathering in the Club House at 8:30am. With our coffee cups in hand we headed out to join the other park residents for some fresh coffee and maybe a donut or two….or….. As it turned out to everyone’s disappointment there was no coffee or donuts. Seemed no one signed up for this weeks host. Oh well, they had a great informative gathering anyway. I asked “Carl” who was in charge of running the meeting how getting the coffee and donuts were handled. After telling us, we all headed over to the sign up sheet on the bulletin board. Seems the next week that is open for supplying the coffee and donuts is in the middle of April. Woops…we will be gone and headed back to Michigan by then. But at least I know how it’s handled for next year when we are planning on being here again.

This evening we decided to go out to dinner at Applebee's.

Trying to look cold when it's 83F.

I just had to look like it was cold here, especially since a friend of mine phoned me this morning and said it was just 16F back home. Here it hit in the low 80’s again with sunny skies. We are just loving it!

On our way home from Applebee's

Here is the proof. On our way home from Applebee’s this evening around 5:30PM. No….I didn’t take the photo, Wilma leaned over and took the photo while I kept both eyes on the road.

Wilma and I are both looking forward to a visit from daughter Angel and grand daughter Brooke. They will be arriving tomorrow around 1:45PM. They will be staying with us for  a few days. We are planning on a few beach trips, etc. while they are here. I’ll keep you posted.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
