Another winter in paradise

Went to the beach in Venice to look for sharks teeth and shells, this is what we found

This is the sunset we were treated to for our patience. Of course, the cocktails helped pass the time

Merry Christmas!

I had a wonderful Christmas. My Dad and his fiance came over from the east coast of Florida and my Mom was here from NY.

We had baked ziti for Christmas Eve dinner. For Christmas Day, Dan deep fried a turkey. It was truly the best turkey I've ever had. Then we went over to friends for more desserts and to exchange some gifts.

Very relaxing day.

I finally got a few Christmas cards and presents sent today. Went to the post office but the line was crazy so I went to a place called Goin Postal. I was in there for 35 minutes but they boxed up the presents and off they went. I think I paid more in postage than the actual presents, lol.

Oh I just love the holidays, ugh!

One week until the cruise

This is going to be a busy week. Lots of things to get accomplished before I leave. Guess I should think about packing too, huh? LOL

Gordon Ramsay's Shepherds Pie

It's a short video.
I'm making this for dinner tonight but using ground beef instead of lamb.

I love Gordon, would love to spend a day with the man.

Outlet Shopping.....gotta love it

It was such a nice day I took my daughter and headed up to the Prime Outlets in Ellenton. I had some $$ from my birthday and wanted to go to the Liz Claiborne outlet to look for a pocketbook (thanks Tink for getting me hooked on Liz).

They were having a buy one get one free sale. I got two pocketbooks for the price of one and I had a $10 off coupon too! I scored big time!!!!!

Got a few Christmas presents too. It was a productive day.

Bikers in Paradise with a cause

On our way to put the boat in the water in Port Charlotte, FL, we were riding next to quite a few bikers. This couple caught my eye because of his hat and the moose on the front. It was Veteran's Day and they went to a park next to the marina. There were hundreds of them, alot carrying presents and decorated for Christmas.

Quite a site and another reason I love living in Florida. It was Nov. 11, it was warm and a gorgeous day to be out and alive.
