Getting some fresh oranges from the Showcase of Citrus. It is also a little animal farm.
Thursday we arrived and went to Adam’s house to celebrate Laura’s birthday. Friday we spent most of the day with my Mother. We had an early dinner with Jim and Lynn. I was so excited to see them, duh no pictures. We had a great time!!❤️🎄
I’m getting really excited to head home for Christmas. To see everyone will be awesome. 🎄❤️🎉🎊🍹 We have been doing things to pass the time until we leave. Date day at Pepe Cantina, cocktails and appetizers….yummy! Then we rode around the town and investigated the little shops. Of course, we found an ice cream store.. ahhhh, delicious.
Getting ready for Christmas, haircut, manicure, and pedicure.
Wednesday was craft day, and we made Christmas shadow boxes. Later that afternoon, I had a manicure and pedicure. It was a wonderful fun day! They even serve Sangria! 🍹🎄
December 2nd has special meaning to me. I lost a son on that day, so it can be difficult for me sometimes. My thoughtful husband took the day off from work. We spent the morning at home relaxing. Early afternoon, he took me out for lunch.
After we had the luxury of a nap….zzz Early evening, we did the last of the Christmas decorations.
It was “Flamingle”, everyone brings a snack, drink and mingles. You can also play games! It’s a great way to meet the residents of Rolling Ridge.
Sunday, I rested from all the walking we did the day before. Monday, I worked on my grocery list that will be delivered on Wednesday. Tuesday We finally got to the post office to change our address. I also got my flu shot today. Later I’ll go to play cards at the club house.
David cleaned and organized the shed. He found this decorative hanging piece. He moved it to the outside to make the shed look good.
I tried out our 1st sit-down dinner on date night at Goombas. We thought everything was great. Check my Google review.
So much to around here. It’s hard to choose what to do first….😊
The first day was interesting for Peanut’s left eye, wouldn’t open. So we were looking for a vet to see him. They have urgent care for animals here, too. So we didn’t have to go to an emergency vet. Phew! He had an ulceration on his cornea. Antibiotics and a gel were ordered as well as the cone of shame.
We spent the next few days just getting settled. Cleaning and arranging things to our liking. Well, 2 days later, a threatening hurricane was coming. Rain was moderate, but the wind was frightening to me. We brought our living room slide in, and I prayed to just be OK in the morning. We had trouble pulling in our big side awning, so we had to call a repair person. Come to find out the motor died! Grrrr. So now the decision is to fix or replace the awning. Hmmm.
We did alright even though I didn’t sleep well. It rained the next 2 days, getting lighter each day. David was getting a little cabin fever, so he put out the patio furniture! It looks great!
Thursday, we had to have Peanut rechecked, and the ulceration is getting better, although his eye sight seems worse. They recommend seeing a specialist????
Finally, by Saturday, we both needed a little fun time. There was an RV show in Daytona, but I didn’t think I would be able to last a few hours or go up and downstairs, especially since my surgery. So, we decided to stay closer and go to Disney Springs. That way, we could leave when we wanted to and be home quicker.
It was so much fun and, of course, beautifully decorated. I was excited to go!!
One of the most beautiful sights was all the Christmas trees 🎄 Each tree was decorated after a Disney movie.
We took a little break and had a drink at Wolfgang Pucks restaurant. We also had a delicious sausage pizza…yummy.
We continued walking around for a while, had an ice cream, went home, and took a nap!
