Full of activity

It's a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Paul is working on our

and I am taking the opportunity to update this blog.

We have been absent from the internet for awhile. I'd say we've been busy, but to me busy describes when one works.  Saying our life is full of activity would be more accurate.

We are very happy here.

We have the time to get together with family and friends.

Beth arranged a paella dinner party with their friends, Dorothy and Lee. We had fun getting to know them while we cooked together. It doesn't get much better than that!

We made a variation of our favorite paella recipe.

Thanks, Beth and Gary! Let's do that again!!!

We were able to spend last Monday and Tuesday with our good friends, Bob and Peggy. They were traveling through Florida and took the time to visit us. They love the outdoors as much as we do, so we always have fun when the four of us are together.

We did some exploring at Myakka River State Park.

We stopped visiting long enough to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

We also canoed South Creek in Oscar Scherer State Park.

It was one of those days when you are having such a good time you can't believe it. We are lucky people!

Thanks for visiting us!  Come back!!!

 And, then I flew home Wednesday to attend Match Day with Suzanne. It was a great week! I will follow up with that event shortly.  Talk to you soon.

Glad to see you back! That paella looks divine! Good luck on the tax prep work! Seems like that is all I've done for the last three months and still not done! I am weary of it. Glad you had a good visit with friends - pictures were beautiful!

I love times when you have so much fun with friends, you feel so lucky! That's actually how I felt on Thursday night when I saw you & Suzanne. It was so restorative to be with family & laugh. :) Laughter truly is the best medicine!!

Love the photos - looks beautiful! You and Paul both look just wonderful.

This is crazy, but I just logged back on because I forgot to tell you how great both you and Paul look! Retirement looks great on you both! Then I see that Lisa beat me to it, so ditto her comment!

We missed you! But very happy to hear that you have been "busy" having FUN! Food, friends and Florida...who needs anything more?! :P

Have an excellent week. We are hitting the road tomorrow so I will check back in when we find another public WiFi signal.
