The last few weeks have been traveling weeks for us. The first trip took us to Key Largo in the Florida Keys for some wonderful tropical temperatures, palm trees and beautiful aqua waters.
We were able to enjoy a little reef fishing. Although the fish were bountiful, the sizes were too small for keeping. My only “keeper” was the last cast. Just as it was almost to the boat a shark came along and took a nice bite out of it. I ended up reeling in the head only. The boat captain told me to put it back in the water and when I lowered it a 4 foot barracuda took the rest of it – hook, line and sinker. It was very interesting to watch.

It was home for a day to pack up and head off to our annual snow trip with all of our children and their families. Fortunately, the Sierras had received a nice snow a few days before we arrived. It was perfect for the children – soft for snowballs and sledding.
A major snowball fight….
The adults firmly planted in the safety zone or DMZ as we were calling it.
By the fourth day the temperatures had warmed up and we were treated to a nice rainstorm which melted much of the snow. I was just glad that we had the snow when we arrived.
I have decided that when I win the lottery I would like to buy the log cabin that is adjacent to the condominiums that we rent. It was featured on Extreme Log Cabins and it is incredible! It is actually for sale for $15,000,000 so I'd better start buying some lottery tickets.
Just look at the amazing view that could be enjoyed each day.
Needless to say, again, the sewing was absent. I did manage to add a few more stitches to my giant cross stitch project. The straw is now done.
