Post Christmas blues

 Last week's walk revealed that Christmas is OVER.  Sadly, this was the sight all over the neighborhood. Post Christmas in south Florida means you stuff your WHOLE tree in the yard waste can. The one that is normally reserved for palm fronds. Come on, people! If you can't chop it up, could you at least remove the tinsel?

//I decided to write America a note on behaf of the Sunshine State //

Dear Rest of Country, 

Your mulch will contain silver specks this year.

With love,

Holiday family time... in collages

      We went from a 2 person and a dog household to a 6 person, two dog household this holiday season.   I wanted to make sure they got the most out of their experience here, so instead of naps, I planned activities.  I even went to a few places myself for the first time. South Florida isn't that big after all. I may have had a slight thing in the past about crossing certain streets, as if I were going too far and needed to turn around. I love exploring and learning new things daily, but I have a cap. And when I reach that cap, I just go back home. Perfectly logical?
     While it was a blast, Shawn and I were exhausted because we still worked full time. We vowed to do nothing after they left but rest with out toes in the sand. And did just that. In fact, he had to stop me from throwing a fondue party. Glad he did, folks.

Glad he did. 
(And now the collages...!)
