Sunday - New Year's Eve!

Ken and I were at Edgewater Church at 9:15 and had a great time talking with several folks that we hadn't seen since last March.  The music and message were so good.  Pastor Dan had a great sermon for the end of the year asking us all to find our calling for 2018 by following 4 words - Stop, Look, Listen, and then Go!  It was rather thought provoking but in a good way!

Ken and I went to Denny's where we always share a Make Your Own Slam.  It is definitely one of our favorites!  Then on to Wal-Mart for a few more groceries - we should soon have everything we need till at least the end of the week.  Well, we can hope!!!

I wanted to watch the Eagles, but that was not a game they broadcast in this part of the country, nor the Steelers.  What is wrong with the TV stations around here?  I was very disappointed!  I did watch the Patriots win while making some jewelry.  At halftime we went for a walk, but my hip didn't want to cooperate, so we only walked about a mile!

We watched the end of the game and then headed to Manasota Beach to reflect on 2017 and watch the beautiful sunset.  We both agreed that 2017 was a fantastic year for Ken and I and we feel extremely happy and blessed!

Lots of folks on the beach to watch the sunset!  Birds too!

I had to spend a little time shark's tooth hunting!

An amazing, gorgeous sunset!

Tomorrow night is full moon, but it was phenomenal tonight!
Notice the osprey on its nest on top of the pole!

The osprey up close and personal!

Love this photo that Ken took when we were leaving the beach!

We played several rounds of Hand and Foot and so far I am leading!  It is now 10 PM and I am not sure I will be up to "watch the ball drop".  Wow, I must be getting old!  Maybe I will go back to bed to read and then hopefully watch the ball drop on that TV.  Somehow I think that is just wishful thinking!

Did hear from Ernie and Noela today and they left Canada early this morning where it was minus 17 degrees!  They hope to arrive here late Tuesday or sometime Wednesday!  Their site is waiting for them!

Well, we want to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2018 filled with many special moments that create lasting memories!  Make it a great one!!!

Wanted to share a photo of our home for the next 3 months -

No one behind us except the canal and Florida birds!!
