Tuesday in paradise

This is where the new resort will be built.  They got the first zoning to "commercial" past the City Commissioners and now it is on to Tallahassee for approval and then site plans next.  My best guess is about five years to completion but I believe it will be lovely.  We just have to get past all the building stuff first.  They are no longer taking very good care of the golf course.  (There are two, the other one is pristine.)  This one will close soon.  It's been here thirty years and now they will have to remove dirt as there is arsenic in the soil from years of fertilizers.  Who knew it is so hard to remove a golf course?

Never been through the Panama Canal?  Here is the Carnival Miracle in less than two minutes doing just that.  Now you know why the larger ships have to go around!

I delivered my (much appreciated) macaroons yesterday and ate one of my cupcakes.  I have to say the macaroons sure did look and smell good and the texture seemed great too.  Very easy recipe but not low calorie.

Today is canasta and we are having pizza at poker tonight so no dinner for me first.  If I blot the pizza really good I can have two slices for 500 calories and I'll be fine.  They'll have salad too, and diet coke.

Have a great Tuesday y'all.  I know I will too!


  1. I had no idea there was arsenic in fertilizers!
    Hope you are right, and that when they are done building, it will be lovely.
    Here's to sending *Light* to the golf courses that are left being kept pristine again


  2. Sounds like a lovely day.
    I am taking The Square Ones to the vets today so maybe we will find out what is wrong with Hamishe's leg.

    cheers, parsnip

  3. I still have 1 bowl of chili and 6 bowls of motherdear's chicken soup in the freezer. Very low calorie and low fat! I need to do some preparation this weekend to make some more freezer meals that are ready to eat and healthy and sensible.

    I've had a couple of cup cakes but still managed to lose a bit this morning! =) YAY!

    Have a lovely day canasta'ing a pizza party poker'ing. big hugs xoxo

  4. Barb cracks me up. I know you'll have fun. Hopefully being home a few dollars.

    Big hugs, honey...

  5. When my daughter and her family cruised--they went through the Panama Canal--they said it was very interesting.

  6. That Panama crossing is interesting. I would like to do it someday.Have a wonderful day my lovely friend Bee.


  7. Well since I won't be cruising anymore and the panama canal was something hubby and I wanted to do, I can say I've done it now. Excellent.

    You can have all the cookies and cupcakes, pass the ice cream please. Oh and some of that pizza too.

    Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from warm California. ☺

  8. We will be going through the canal in May next year on Norwegian. Unfortunately for Carnival, with four disabled ships in the past 18 months, I don't think we'll being using them for quite a long time.

  9. Bee, Have fun at the game tonight. You are very good at watching your foods...I like that you blot the pizza..I do that too:):) Why eat any grease. When ever I brown hamburger for chili..I rinse it, then drain it. Get all that fat out.I cut fat and sugar corners where ever I can. Hope the new buildings add beauty and that they take care of the golf courses. xoxo,Susie

  10. Hope your Tuesday was great.
