Topsy Turvy World

As noted on my "Facebook Memories", in general February 7 is a pretty awesome day.  I've taken photos of me and my wineglass on the front porch after work on two years.  Yesterday was warm...70 degrees...but wet.  By the time I got home at 6:15, there was no rain, the temperature had dropped to 65 or so, but it was seriously dark!
Feb 7, 2013...a fine day!
This has been a super unusual winter here in Evansville...we've just had one dusting of snow, lots of really nice days folded into regular winter weather days.  Not hard to take, but hard to get used to.

Early February

I started a "kittenhat" for Vivian yesterday morning before work.  Megan will be getting one also. Heck, I might even make one for myself, if only to have a place to pin my button!

What are we...16 days into the new "administration"?  I'm exhausted with all of the shenanigans going on in Washington.  I really just want someone to put their foot down and (A) smash the patriarchy, (B) impeach the president, (C) make our representatives grow up...get it together and make our country what we've always been taught that it is {{although some of us may have skipped school on those days!!}} I've cut way down on news consumption, and I really should just ban myself from Facebook.  I want to know, but I don't want to be inundated...burying my head in the sand will not be a good thing.

Blooms!

Yay!  The primroses have arrived at Aldi.  Still such a bargain at 99 cents!  I only bought two the other day...could have filled a cart with them, but I know too well that it would have been mass plant murder.  Those colorful blooms make me so happy!

Mid-winter mini vacation!

On the beach...a first!

I spent a wonderful, warm few days in Florida with Megan, Vivian, and Kyle.  The flight from Evansville was pretty amazing. One hour and forty four minutes from Evansville to Sanford/Orlando. We stayed on the beach at Cocoa Beach for the first two nights, then moved inward to the Orlando area for the last night of our trip.  Megan, Kyle, and Vivian attended a wedding on Saturday, and I "hung out".  We flew back on Sunday morning.  Quick trip, but pretty enjoyable.  It was good to have Monday off before returning to work today.
Another first!

Delicious seafood tower from Florida Fresh Grill.  Really good.  Going to have to replicate this at home! The cocktail was also delightful...Dark & Stormy--dark rum, ginger-ale, fresh lime.
