LOL WEEK 20NSB = My Happy PlaceIt’s been one week since I was cleared to exercise again by the cardio doc….and I’ve walked5 out of 7 days….over 10 miles….at a brisk pace. One day, I took my camera and had some fun with small “Ruddy Turnstones” – yep that’s their name! WEEK 21NSB – my walking place! WEEK 22Finally, afternoon Storms in FL.

We froze the Sour Orange in Ice Cube Trays and anything else we could find….and I’ve been using those all year to make MoJo Sauce, added directly to chicken stock, and Margarita’s. We’ll have plenty of Oranges to do that again, early in 2020. WEEK 34One of our Resident Hawks landed on the RV hanger for my Bird Feeder.
