Happy New Year

The last day of the year. And what a year it has been. Completely changing our lifestyle, full body radiation for Gary, Granny moving to North Carolina, renting our home, moving and sorting and garage sales. Whew, it makes me tired just thinking about it all again. That stuff just took three months. The next three months were great. Adventures day after day. Visiting long lost family. A sad period. A little frustration with Doctors, and some more adventure. And here we are. The last day of 2010.

I wonder what 2011 will have in store for us? Life is an adventure and we are out there to meet it, greet it and enjoy it.

Donna and Ron had to work today, so we cooked dinner for them and we ate on our patio.
It was so great to be able to sit out at night and not freeze. By the time we got to the clubhouse at 9pm, the party was in full swing.
A new little girl (13 years old) had been asked to sing for us. She sang mostly western, but with this older crowd, added a few oldies into her repertoire. The crowd loved her, as she really had a sweet voice but strong. Her name is Ashleigh Lynne, so if you get a chance to hear her, listen up. I am amazed to say that this three hour party with a bunch of 75 plus party-goers, a DJ and snacks was the best New Year’s Eve I have ever been to. We danced and danced and before we knew it, it was midnight, and we were still dancing.

We danced while we cleared the tables, we danced while we were putting away food, we danced while we washed dishes. And we danced all the way home to watch our own private fireworks. Casey (19) purchased some earlier in the week and he so wanted to show someone. So we sat on our patio, he stood by the lake edge and proceeded to do his thing. Here are some shots of the display.

I think we got to bed this morning around 2:30 am. But I woke up at 7:30, made coffee and visited Tasha on the patio. It seems like Florida weather is here for at least the next week. Wow, we’ve missed it! Tasha is doing much better. She must be on her 15th life by now.

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope all your wishes come true. We’ve given up on resolutions…
