Then...And Now

I am back from the Keys. What a difference a day (and 1,500 miles) makes!
I left this:














And came home to this:













I could not believe the snowstorm I'd been waiting for all winter happened while I was away. I didn't get my "snow day" off from work to enjoy it happening from home, but I sure was glad I was where I was.
I had a great time, just beaching, relaxing, shopping, dining, and knitting. The weather was sunny most of the time, but cooler on the last two days than I'd have liked. I did not get to go into the ocean because it was a little too windy and the water was kind of chilly and murky from the turtle grass, but I did have my feet in the water. I'm going back in May (hopefully) when the weather will probably be too warm!

I'll try to get more pictures up over the weekend, but I'll leave you with a "Saturday Sky" picture from last week, taken at the Westin Pier at Sunset during Dominique's Cat Show. I love watching those cats preform, and try to get there each time I visit to hear Dominique's immortal words "hurry up, take your time..."

So would I. I can't wait to reitre and move down there.

I can't see the photos here at school, for some reason, but I can imagine! I've been to the cat show too and enjoy it.

We're going to Florida in three weeks and will spend half of the time in the Keys. I am so excited!
