Home Again, Home Again Jiggidy Jig

We arrived home lastnight around 2:30am all tired out from the flight but it was a wonderful trip. We all so needed to experience the warmth, the sun shining, the flowers blooming and the birds flying around.

Isn't the above tree gorgeous? I love God's trees!

We were so blessed to be able to stay at my sister-in-law's condo, it makes the trip that much more enjoyable when we have a free place to stay. It was right on a golf course which was kind of funny because we aren't really golfers but were highly entertained by those on the course itself. The fellows who mowed and took care of the landscaping every morning were hilarious - they each took turns golfing on each hole they finished maintaining ~ they had a blast doing it too! LOL! What a gorgeous place to be able to work at every morning! I would say they are 'living-the-dream' as the saying goes!

This was my "HAPPY PLACE" every day but one where we went to the mall with the big arcade for the boys! I can actually say that I got just enough sun to warm me through and through (for a while anyway)!

This wasn't a "shopping" trip for us but more of a "Sun-warmth" trip for me, but my hubby got me two treats that I absolutely love, the mask is one of them.

Talk about fun, right?

and this is the next...

I'm a simple gal... I love my sketchers! I decided I would try these sketchers 'shape-ups' which are supposed to tone your legs and thighs etc, as you walk. I hope they will be okay and not hurt my back!

We came back to snow on the ground but God has given me peace about that! The sun was shining today!

Have a blessed day! Big hugs!

i love my Skechers, too, Kelli. I had a pair and wore them for years. They were oriental patchwork and I thought they were so cool (I was only 45..heehee).
I am so glad you got some time in the warmth and had a wonderful time. I love God;s trees, too. When we were traveling to and fro for Jud's treatment, I had the best time photographing all the different trees, from cactus to palm trees to redwoods.
Big hugs,

Glad you enjoyed your trip. Thanks for sharing your photos, what a lovely outlook from the condo, very relaxing. I love your masks, just beautiful

I have the shapeups. I dont wear them on days Im in serious pain. but otherwise, they actually help my back because I think I tend to stand straighter in them.

Welcome home, Kelly! I hope you're well-rested. Your mask is fabulous! I've wanted to try shape-ups, but I have some serious back pain, and I fear they would make it worse. I wonder if they would help strengthen it. I think my real problem is spending too much time at the drawing table and not enough time walking :). Have a great day! Hugs, Terri

Kelly, I really like seeing a blog where the author is not hiding her faith. I like that. Great mask. Sure would like to hear how the Sketchers turn out. I have some old ones that I love, but been thinking about a pair of these....that is if I can find them here in Ukraine.
