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…

HO HO HO! (LA, lower Alabama!)

Tis the season!!!! Lemon curd for one…YUM! Evening sunsets…still have yet to make it up for a sunrise :O) !! Family gift packages are in the mail…a couple left, but so happy to have off our plate. More pics of loving homemade goodness to share next week after their surprises our over! I had the…

“Do you hear what I hear?”

One of my very favorite carols of all time, “Do you hear what I hear?” (Lyrics at the end of the post.) So “Are we all ready?”  The time has come and the hour is fast approaching! We ventured out and about yesterday and came across this outdoor market….it was like a breath of fresh…

The impact on the Gulf…and some glimmer!

The candy canes purchased down the road are a hit and set the stage for our sweet Christmas tree!  Nothing better than a Bob’s candy cane for a final touch.  You can read a little history on the shepherd’s crooks…I like to whittle them into a sword…watching the colors disappears into one white mass that…

Tis the season to REJOICE and be THANKFUL!

We left the weeks of whirlwind changes in a rig, direction of travel, and regrouping for holiday fun!  And what better place that the shorelines of the Mobile Bay and Gulf of Mexico! We’ve been lucky to have had pretty seasonal weather so far.  While a few nights we jumped into the low 30s, each…

A new beginning….thank you JOHNNY’s RV!

Where to start?? Over the last two weeks, we couldn’t ignore the tiny coziness of CozybeGone.  Dark nights came early, we retreated to our 96 sq ft, and days became entirely too short!  Six months in this Casita, we thought we were doing great! Discussion began…you think we should upsize?  And that leaves us where?  HERE!…

Holiday Photo Fun!!!

Excited to start a festive holiday photo project thanks to a share from the Zen of Sweeping!  I can use a distraction and the perfect way to bring perspective to the month of December.  December Twenty Twelve Photo Contest is the link if you want to participate.  Right now, I have a friend continuing her…

A LONG 5 days of holiday fun …. !!!

Five days, two states, and three towns later settling back into a normal routine.  Tipping over on the scale…now how can that be ?!!!  Tis the season :O) Jerry and I started our journey to Indiana on the two lane last Thursday.  And what is walking down the side of the road, in the middle…
