All clear here, everything put back where it belongs and life goes on.  Except for the Bahamas.  It will never be the same there.  I feel so bad for them.  The videos are heartbreaking.  I will admit it wasn't my favorite place to visit but I sure feel bad for them.

I hope all of you fared as well as I did, I am sure in a good place if there is any kind of emergency.  They kept us comfortable, fed, secure, and entertained.  80 of the staff stayed the entire time, sleeping where they could, some on the floor.  They were amazing and I love them all.

Well it looks like we are being spared the brunt of this awful storm and I am so thankful but I was never worried here.  In the past living in a highrise I was always so scared and trying to find a place to stay so no more of that.

Life shall get back to normal soon, I must put away all the stuff I got out in preparation and just thank God I didn't need it.

Thanks for all the concern yall!

Just a quick note to let y’all know I am in very good hands as far as the hurricane headed my way. Lots of staff staying, lots of help, plenty of food, helpful friends, nothing to do but wait. I will be perfectly fine.

Well my committee stuff is getting me some phone calls and conversations about things they want changed of complaints.  Nothing bad, just normal stuff but it's going to take more time than I want to give I'm afraid.  We'll see.
Monday there is a bar-b-que for Labor Day, the food is really good.
I had my annual physical this week and it's all good except to lose weight.  Buggers.  I know, I was THERE and gained so much back when I was on steroids for a year and now to get it off again is so hard.  I need to though.  
There is a storm out there now, I don't think we'll get it or if we do I don't think it will be major but it is good to know I'll be taken care of if needed.  Fed too.  We are having a meeting tomorrow morning about it and they'll tell us what to do.  The glass in my apartment is rated to 110 MPH and I'm not afraid here at all.
And that, my friends, is all I know!  Have a great day!

So they are renovating the lobby in the clubhouse and I was in the card room playing bridge and looked out to see this.  I showed it to the executive director thinking he'd like to mention it to the contractor but he didn't seem concerned.  He's the weak link in this place I think.  But mostly it's lovely and I still love it.

Oh, and now I am on the Council with a committee under me (not literally!) that encompasses the grounds.  All of the grounds.  To include the buildings (but not inside them), landscaping, lakes, roads, all of it.  Talk about stupid!  How did I get talked into this?  I get to hear every complaint about a lightbulb out or a shrub with a dead leaf, all of it.  Buggers.  I need my head examined.

And THIS guy above does NOT fall under my watch. Ha.

So I must run now because I must get ready for an early dinner tonight (5:00) and bridge game after but I will try to blog more.  I'm really sorry to be gone so much.

My July 4th girl!


And my summer wreath made in craft class

I am having such fun dressing my girl for any holiday I deem appropriate, she doesn't seem to mind either.  She is becoming a bit of a celebrity among the neighbors too which she finds delightful.  Kind of like the attention Roche' likes, and he's still getting it by the way.

Big doings around here tomorrow, hope your Independence Day is as good as mine!

PS: the author of Ties That Bind is Barry Eisler

So today is Sunday and that means I had lunch with the duck.  We got TACOS!!  Yay us!

It's a quiet day otherwise, I'm reading a good mystery, "Ties that Bind".  I'm going to take a walk when it gets a bit later, it's really hot out now.

Nest week is a busy week but then they all are aren't they?  The calendar is full every day so Sunday is a relief!

The chef is doing a monthly special dinner now so Friday is Junes.  It's going to be an Italian night.  He is the best chef ever.  We are so lucky to have him!

That's about it from here today.  Hope y'all are well.  I am and life is grand!

Yesterday we dyed silk scarves in crafts class.  Of course I went red, white, and blue,  I almost went pink but decided with the 4th of July around the corner, well, you know.  We make the most interesting stuff in that class and it's completely free with everything included.  Next week we are doing summer door wreaths. The one on my front door now I made there as well, it's the spring one.

Last night I played bridge with someone that has never won before, at least since I've been playing.  My regular partner was busy.  Anyway we came in first place and you should have seen her face!  She was so happy!

Tonight is a movie, Front Runner, about Gary Hart.  It must be old I don't know but I'll go, I like the movies.  

Tonight is also lamb chop night in the dining room.  It's every other Wednesday.  Now I don't like them at all but most people love them and they are presented very nicely.  There are lots of other choices though so I'll enjoy my dinner as always.

Must get in the shower now, I have to go to "Waist Watchers" at 2:00.  Later loves...

I looked and looked for a statue to put out by my front door (to decorate for every holiday too!) and the duck and D#1 came through for Mother's Day.  I love her. This was Flag Day.  

I finished my book.  It was predictable but I did like it.  

The Duck and I went to Duffy's today for lunch and had Mahi Mahi blackened.  Very good.  Then he had to go into work so I came home and finished the book.

That's it from me today, I'm already in my nightgown at 6:00.  Sunday's are down time for me mostly.

Have a great day y'all!
