Log Awaited Vacation

Beware - Slow Speed Ahead: Long Awaited Vacation: WRONG

Jim is full speed ahead because it has been a very long awaited vacation. As many family and friends know this vacation has been needed for a very, very long time. It has been 3 years as we have battled and conquered Jim's throat cancer. It wasn't just his throat cancer, but so many more domino effects from that cancer that led us into a whirlwind of stress, fatigue and days filled with a dominated focus on improving our health.

If you have not followed the past history of our journey you can find some of this history on Caringbrige ( not all of this history is there but so much is for sure.

With family and friends watching over and house sitting we are therefore able to take this long awaited vacation and spend many weeks throughout Florida. Our first day (and week) is here at Hontoon Landing Resort. A beautiful place for fishing and site seeing for some absolute beautiful scenery! I can't wait to share each new day of this beautiful time with you!

Time for a Season Change???

Between the hot flashes (in weather that is) and the freezing cold, who else is ready for a change in seasons? We have been sick with the flu for more than a week (first time in we can't remember when) and the house still echoes with hacking and coughing.

Well we are going to try and force a change and take a little trip down to Florida (St John's River) and then on to the Keys. Count down is now in less than two weeks. This will be a great change of "weather" for us in so many ways but just to name a couple 1) The actual weather and, 2) Our first real vacation over the past three years. A lot has happened and we figured it was time for a road trip (think we will take the truck though - don't think Jim's knees could hold out with me vs Kya hahaha).

I have been reading many "bloggers" on many topics and on my views. It made be wonder and think how in the world and why in the world would anyone want to ready "My View?"

I'm just a simple minded woman recently retired and trying to find her way
in so many areas of her life. Even though I have 50 years of experience,
I'm not a pro in any one or two, but I am certain I have "My View!"

I've made my mistakes, and that is many this is for sure,
as a mother, a wife and as a person.
But on all of those mistakes....I also know that there may be one or two
I surely would consider had something that I would consider from "My View!"

But one thing I know for sure and that is this, (and even read recently too)
words can make a way for us. "The words we speak, the words we write,
the words we serve are our little worlds and they are meant to only be echoes
from our mind and/or our heart".....
I know this is from my heart and this is surely "My View!"

So, not knowing where or how far and wide this blog will ever go,
I know it will be shared from things that happen(ed),
things I see, things I feel, things from my heart.....
or things I consider just plain and simple "My View!"

I Hope to see you again and thought I would share this parting shot
I consider a favorite from "My View"

See you soon
