It was in the 40's here this morning, windy, and rather rainy! Not a very nice morning. So, after breakfast Ken and I played a game of Hand and Foot and I was victorious - Yes!!!! I called Noela again and said we would make dinner for them so they could just concentrate on getting set-up and organized when they got here. After our card game, we worked together to make salad for dinner and then I did my devotions and some reading while Ken worked on the computer. He had a great phone conversation with Kevin, his partner when in Real Estate!
I talked to my mother and even though she sounded terrible, she said she is feeling much better. She had a small amount of fluid on her one lung, but it is improving - hallelujah!
Ernie and Noela arrived around 1 and the sun suddenly appeared. They came over to say hello and it was so good to see them again! They had a very cold drive from Canada to Florida and are very happy to have arrived safe and sound!
I made a batch of muffins which required quite a bit of clean-up. I walked over to Ernie and Noela's around 4 to see what time they wanted dinner and to catch up on what is happening in both of our lives. Ken and I took a short walk around part of the CG and it was sooooo windy!
I worked on this blog and then we started dinner! Ken had a tough time getting the grill to stay hot enough to grill the meat because of the strong winds. Ernie and Noela came over at 6 for dinner - steak/chicken/salmon, salad, grilled veggies, and quinoa! We just spent the evening chatting and having a fun time together. They gave us a wood burning sign that Neola had made for us with our names and a carving of a photo Ken had taken of an eagle. What a great gift! We gave them a calendar for 2018 that had photos on each month of times we were together in 2017.
|What a fantastic gift and so special since Noela made it!|
They left around 9:30 and Ken and I went right to bed. It was only in the 50's today and the weather tomorrow will be about the same with the strong winds continuing!
