One of my best friends from Wyoming is thinking of getting a place in which to "winter" down here. She'll be coming to look at properties next week. I'm not going to get too excited yet. The story of our friendship is pretty amazing.

While we were driving around looking for a good area for them, I noticed the camellias are blooming. They'll bloom up to January, maybe through January. Red ones, white ones.

Other news - grandson is doing very well on the clarinet. I love hearing him play.

Foot is healing - the glue has rolled off about five days early, the burns seem to be healing. Haven't quite regained all of preflu strength. Lots to do before company gets here - and I am on an eating binge that I HAVE to cut off immediately! Ever since the flu, wonder what that is all about. Doesn't matter, just need to get back into control.

Weather is cool - 68 degrees.

Ready for bed.

wish I could afford a 'winter' day eh?

Glad you're feeling better. Nowt wrong with binge eating - especially chocolate!

I am glad you are feeling better -well enough to drive around again.
Beautiful camellias! We need to wait until spring to see them in London again.

Perhaps the eating is to simply replenish your body after the shock of the fall and the flu, and the burns and the toe... that's a lof of things to be happening in such a short time.

Four D - you wouldn't believe the price on the homes - it is such a beautiful area - email me, I'll tell you what they cost....thinking maybe of selling ours and moving out there - its right over the Florida line - on a bay - they are Mobile homes - but hey, we lived out there a couple of years and absolutely loved it...

Milla I hope so - I weighed the a.m. and am in shock. Back to very strictness today for a while. I could cry!

Yay for your grandson! I tried to play when I was in highschool, but I could never master it.
I hope that your friend finds a new place close to you. A winter home in the south sounds lovely :)
