Lou and I have been talking about getting out of New York for years and eventually, we will find the right place, at the right time. We will move to a warmer climate and be able to enjoy golfing, camping and being outdoors all year round.
Although I do look forward to that, I know it will be strange not to have the changing of the seasons marked by the bone chilling wind and snow up to your chin give way to the muddy, water soaked yard and everything turning green followed by 100 degrees and above with very high humidity and no rain then turning cooler with multicolored leaves on trees that turn brown and fall to the ground.
We have started our springtime activities. Lou has tilled the garden and we have started growing some tomatoes, cabbage, poblanos and romaine from seeds indoors under growing lights. Next month we will plant them once we are fairly certain of not getting frost overnight.
We have de-winterized the trailer and it is ready for our first trip coming up on Mother’s Day weekend.
We golf whenever we can, but during the week is tough with schedules. The town has added several walking trails so we are hoping to get out several times a week to walk the trails and get some exercise. It just seems like when our schedule will allow us to golf or walk the trails, it starts to rain.
Oh, well. The rain won’t last forever. Before we know it, the rain will be gone and we can golf and walk the trail in 100 degrees and above with very high humidity.
Talk to you next month. Until then, may you be blessed with warmth in your home, love in your heart, peace in your soul and joy in your life.
