After being away for almost three months, we are finally back home. The house was fine but while we were away, there was an ice storm here and as a result, a lot of damage to the trees on our property. We came home to the lawns full of broken branches - what a mess! We got right at it this past week and as of Friday, we have it all cleaned up. We love having a fair amount of property but at times, it can be very taxing on the old bodies.
While we were away, we had a great time. Played a lot and relaxed a lot. We were fortunate to have gone to Naples because it was warmer down there than upper Florida. Everyone was complaining about the cold but it wasn't bad where we were. We played horseshoes, bicycled quite a bit, went to Swamp Buggy Races, went to flea markets, etc. I hated having to come home but once we were on our way home, I couldn't wait to get here.
We were happy to find when we got here that the ice is out of the Lake and the loons, the ducks, the goldfinches, the purple finches, the Canada geese are all back. It is so nice to see the wildlife back.
Hope everyone had a great winter and do have a great day.
