Good Morning From Chilly Florida

Good morning. It is still very chilly out even though it is almost 10 am. It is 52 degrees and will get up into the 60s today. It feels cold to us, we must be getting soft. Yesterday we went to our first exercise class at the pool. It felt really good. We stayed after our class and walked in the pool for another hour. So two hours of good exercise. We also made a new friend from Niagara Falls. Part of the enjoyment of the exercise is meeting new people here at our resort. We came home and took a two-hour nap lol!! I am not sure what we are doing today, we may be playing cards later, we will see. Right now we are watching TV, drinking coffee and reading the newspaper.

Sounds like you have good things planned. I wish we had that kind of weather. It's freezing up here. I'm really looking forward to warmer weather.

We have a hard time with the temperatures down here, it goes from hot to cold quite a bit sometimes even in the same day.

We play back alley which is like spades except the trump changes and also you receive from 13 to 1 card to bid on and then back up, so 26 hands.

@BelleStarr my husband has taught me something similar to it. I kinda like the hearts (was it called that ) more!

@Daelii Hearts has the Queen of spades as the bad card that you don't want to get. We play hearts too with other people. What is hand and foot?

Nice to see the photo. There is no ice out side. Is it too cold for a walk outside?

Yes we are always at least 10 degrees colder than where you are and these days I think even more than 10 degrees.

@BelleStarr Tonight, like in two minutes, we are going to try to sleep without the a/c. There's a big breeze a blowin'! I can't tell if it's the waves or the wind, but it sounds good.

Sounds like you had a productive day at the pool. Your nap sounds wonderful. Sounds like the perfect day on a chilly day.

@BelleStarr I had a good workout at the pool this morning, but no nap followed. Still a good day for me though as I spent most of it working on my book.

Oh my I want your weather. Give it over right now, please and thank you. (My winter so far is actually pretty good. I'm just in a 'hassle you' mood.)

@BelleStarr I appreciate you doing that. I'm pretty sick of just finding life insurance offers in my mailbox.

Florida is a pretty large state, down where DianneN is, is much warmer than where I am. It is really warm in the summer though and spring and fall!! lol

Izzy, you are getting soft! You forget what cold really is I'm thinking! I do hope that it warms up for you. We are enjoying temperatures above freezing, of course the downside to that is all of the snirt that is piled here and there-reminders of those piles of snow that we had a few weeks ago. Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy it!

It seems to be chilly in lots of states that aren't used to it, we just moved to Texas and these people are freezing. I think it feels good since we moved from Colorado and are used to it. I do have to say though that the humidity really does make a difference in coldness. Hope you warm up soon, sounds like your having fun though either way

It's always a pleasure to meet new people. Two hours of exercise is too much. How much time you devote normally in gym?

That might be cooler for FL, but there are many people wishing it was that warm. We had rain all day so might have only reached maybe 50 if we're lucky

Yes but every January we do have a few days, this was a little more severe than usual.
