Happy Feet

It's a long, 15-hundred mile walk from our summer home in Iowa
 to our winter digs in Florida.
 So glad we could drive the distance in a car!

Since our arrival, we've been clipping a jungle of growth in our backyard,
getting communication devices connected,
paying bills by phone when mail forwarding doesn't show up,
and getting that flushing mechanism in the bathroom to work properly.

Our first trip out to the beach was a stop at Sharky's for brie and apple pizza
and a windy view of gulf waters churning
away as a result of tropical storm Karen somewhere faraway.
Next, a stop at Eden Salon and Spa, where Jan
gave my feet a lovely sea-salt soak, scrub, massage, and pedicure.

Today it's a sea-salt soak in the tub at home
after a workout at YouFit.


 I'll soon get back to visiting your blogs :)

A sea-salt soak,bubble bath and massage sounds like a good way to relax as you settle into life in Florida for the winter! The brie and apple pizza - interesting!

Heavenly! Like the tootsies!

Jane said...

Glad you're back! Maybe we can connect this year...

We are planning a move, as soon as the sale of our house closes. If it's soon enough, we're probably going to go to St A for a few months, then find a place in this area...

That's a long commute! It must take a lot of work to have two homes in good order - but I bet it's worth it for the weather ;)
