i am very aware that
my maggiepie is snuggled up next to me under the covers,
and i hear the sweet sounds of katherine getting ready for school.
i think it's going to be a good day:D
it's been really hard getting back in the groove this week... it hasn't helped that from the time we arrived home on sunday evening until late, yesterday afternoon the sun never popped from behind the clouds. i am quite certain there is such a beast as seasonal depression:/
we did have a great holiday, though. we spent nearly all of it soaking up the sun, laughing, and eating (yes, a 3 lb gain for moi... but worth every bite;). we only frequented one of these 2 times in 10 days:
ahhh, THE SUN!!!
i always forget how much i love florida's sunshine...
i never forget how much warmer it is there than it is here, but i do forget how much closer to the earth the sun is there than on the lane. being out in it made me want to lasso it and bring it home with me:)
we picked up a really fun game to play while we were there, too: PARTINI!!! katherine and i were on one team and my brother and chico were on the other. it was waaaaaaaaaaaay more fun watching the two of them play off each other than actually playing.
actually, i sent my brother and chico into walmart to get cranium. so, when they came out with partini, i was a bit concerned (i thought it was a drinking game: it was not). it was rated adult, though, and rightfully so... as there is a little innuendo and some of the music knowledge needed goes back to at least the 70's. however, katherine and chico held their own.
i wish i had a video of my brother trying to get chico to guess "dr. jekyll"!!!
(subject: doctors you wouldn't want to have.)
brother: "not mr. hyde"
chico: "oh, yeah, dr. jerKle"
brother: "NO, it's not 'jerKle', chico!!!
yada... yada... yada...
he never got it; but the two kept kat and me in stitches!!!
about the food...
we enjoyed fresh seafood on saturday,
the most amazing jamaican cuisine on monday,
gourmet chinese on wednesday:
chico swears this is how the chinese do it:?
is he correct???
seafood again on the harbor on thursday,
"the best burgers on the beach" on friday,
and gourmet mexican on saturday!!!
it was ALL amazing:P
and, saving the BEST for last...
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY,
i hope you will all have a great weekend!!!
love and God's blessings,
