Good Morning. We're in South Florida today, and I had scheduled a post to show up yesterday as we were traveling. I signed in using the laptop today, and see that my scheduled post is showing only as a draft. Not sure what is going on, as I had double checked the time that it was to post. I also see that on my laptop I am signed into this blog with gmail (which I think I set up when I was in Boston during the summer and in checking around blogger, it seems I can't change that). On my pc at home I'm signed in as I usually do. Oh I hate when I mess up stuff like this! I've tried to get that post to publish, but can only preview it. Sorry!
We had a nice day traveling south, beautiful weather. Very coolish as we left SC. Had to return to our house 2 different times before we actually got started for real. We stopped about a mile from our house to top off the gas. DH had gotten some travel cash on Saturday, even though we normally just use credit cards. I had put the money in my wallet as I was doing the last minute batten down the hatches house check, and laid my wallet on the dresser, to pick up as I came out of our bedroom. While DH was pumping the gas, I looked for my wallet to give him some of the bills to put in his own wallet, guess what? No wallet. So back home we go. Good thing I discovered this when I did, instead of 200 miles down the road. No drivers license, no insurance cards, etc..and all the other stuff you must have handy.
Then we started off again, got just a bit further down the road, and DH said "Did you check that the garage door closed?". Nope, neither of us could remember so back we go once again. Then finally officially got on the road, stopped to eat breakfast before we got out of our local area. We were about 90 minutes late on our departure, but it was not really a big problem. Does this kind of thing happen to you? I try to make lists (I did!) of pre-trip things - like being sure the house temp is set to a certain degree and that it will hold for the period we're away, garbage is emptied, no running toilets, etc. but we still manage to leave in a flurry of forgotten things. Invariably.
As we travelled further south, the temperature warmed up considerably. Today it is lovely, and as I type this, I'm looking out on the water, sparkling like diamonds in the sun. So far I've not seen the dolphins that like to play out there, and the boat traffic has been fairly quiet as well. DD had a business meeting this morning, but should be home later. We're here with the 3 granddogs - who will sleep until their Mama gets back home.
Will try to take some pictures if I see anything interesting, and hope I can use this down time to visit some blogs. Didn't bring anything to make cards, hope my copics got packed along with some stamped images to color. So thanks for joining me today, and have a wonderful Monday. Hugs
