Welcome from Florida

We left Tennessse last Saturday, stopped on the way to drop off Shanti’s rental and she drove the rest of the way down. It was a wonderful drive and a great visit. We stopped over night in Perry,Ga and got in ti Port St Lucie on Sunday about noon. By one we were all unloaded before two we were all unpacked and entertaining faamily. Patty had gotten all the food I wished for so it took only a few minutes to get everything ready for the day. Shanti got to meet most of the family and the twins stole her heart as I knew they would. They have grown up so much but are still so good and such a pleasure to have around. Norman just left for his walk and I need to do the same so will tell tou about Thanksgiving later. Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    Glad to hear you guys are safely in Florida. Hope you enjoy your winter with family. ♥

  2. Envy your warm toes!!!! Mine are getting colder every day when I walk Jade. Nice to have no snow or ice yet but…….it will get to us eventually. Mike will be joining you in St. Lucie after Christmas. He was here yesterday and we went out to lunch. Complains all the time about the long drive down so might put the car on the train and arrive that way. He did it coming home last year and found he really relaxed and got back North rested. Not that much more expensive either after adding figures up. Maybe someday I’ll give it a try. Have to check and find out about dog passengers though.

    Thanksgiving was grand. Now the next holiday excitement and on and on it goes. Life is so good and we are all so fortunate to be having so much fun at this ripe old age. Keep up the walking for I am SURE it keeps us young!!!!! or at least kicking!!!!!

    Hugs to all, Nancy
