The End of 2014…here comes 2015!

A new dawn is approaching as 2013/14’s post came and gone, and one and half years ago we took off on our full-time journey. This New Year’s Eve day brings us full circle…we started in lower Alabama and we now back in the old stomping grounds, living another coastal winter. I begin this review in…

Twas the night before Christmas!

We have continued life in Gulf Shores….gheez, almost time to spread out some more cash and take membership! It’s been a time to count down to the end of the year, try to keep up with family at home and their festivities, and recount our 2014! And trying to figure out what might be next!…

Life can be a zoo or not, while we monkey around! (Gulf Shores, AL)

Wide window shades fully open, more blue skies, and lots of sunshine. This has been one fine month for December, 2014! I hope I’m not repeating myself. As if I’m not forgetting what I logged last time, there are the posts I already made to Facebook and Instagram. Guess if one app goes south, the…

Another day…beach side 60s and sunny! (Gulf Shores, AL)

I had this at the end…but it deserves to be at the beginning! December 8 tomorrow, Feast of the Immaculate Conception and my mom’s birthday (who else is that special!) Memories, plus I Love Lucy, and the holidays!  You know….I miss Adene!  Tears of joy…xxxxoooo Other news, yeah rah….humidity down, windows open, cool breeze allowing for…

It’s December….still in (Gulf Shores, AL)

We watch the temps at home in IL and IN!  And I read the blog post reporting temps in ND from dear Jane (23 below, minus wind chill)! And now I’m sitting here trying to remember being frigid cold, wrapped up, cashmere and wool socks!  It’s really very ,VERY ODD to me this year! You…

Happy Thanksgiving! (Gulf Shores, Alabama)

A day to carry a grateful heart! Many words come to mine this holiday…gratitude, love, feast, appreciative, good health, family & friends, football, blessings, thanks, etc. May these words and more, help prepare us today for the start of the holiday season and let’s all enjoy the ride! Happy Thanksgiving 2014! We miss so many…

BEACH, beach, beach…. (Alabama)

We changed up our beach visit today…today we set in for the sunset route! Stopping at Rouse’s NOLA Cajun market for snacks and a chilled bottle of wine!! We keep the beach gear at our ready…a packed back seat! Our favorite beach entry… Palm trees in a mild breeze, 3:30 pm, temp 66… Our landing…sweatshirts…

COLD, cold, cold! (Alabama)

Whew, it was a low 24 this morning! That was a freak attack, but seeing high 70 in two days with a low in the 50s. Much better! We learned the drill last year so we tarped the water connections, plugged in the diesel, threw on the “magic blanket” and cuddled up watching 60 INCHES…

59 degrees, sunny and E wind at 1mph! HEAVEN!!! (Alabama)

Took off a little late today…destination Farmer’s Market didn’t happen. Plenty of Saturdays for that! “Let’s ride up to the Bon Secour NWR since the weather was so ideal, I asked Mr. Jer?” “I’ll pack a lunch, we’ll gather some more Christmas gift findings for my artsy gifts in my head, and just take in this fine…

Meet up with a few fellow bloggers! (Alabama)

We’re still settling into the new rig and taking time to enjoy the good weather days. Just recently, like yesterday and today, we got on the southern tip of this last polar air front. Not enough to warrant a heavy coat, but one that pressed us to turn on the furnace! I dug out my…

Digging our day trip to Pensacola! (Florida)

Nice and clear, forecast for sunny and low winds, and news there was an art fair in Pensacola, 35 miles down the road! Woohoo, let’s go! And ghee whiz, it was a GOOD one! Anyone knowing our history….before CozybeGone in an RV, we had an art studio maxed with goodies and a woodworking tool studio…
