First Vacation Video

So I had to take a chance at creating a video of multiple videos that Jay captured while on vacation. This is the first of when we went on the Dolphin Sunset Cruise. Lets just say there was more wind, less boat, alot of people, but hardly any dolphins. I tried to get that all in here using a new tool that I borrowed from Heather's blog. Very easy to use. So check it out. More to come as I get more crafty or techy with this software.

Falling for Fall

Now that we are home, we see the autumn colors creeping in. Leaves are turning orange and yellow, even some red. I think there are millions of acorns already on the ground. When we left for vacation, I remember thinking there were a million squirrels around, everywhere you turned or drove down the road... there was a squirrel. Now I think they are all too stuffed with acorns to care about the rest of them already on the ground. Now its my turn to clean them up. The #1 reason to hate Fall. Yard cleanup. Ugh. I don't even want to think about it yet.
Just a quick lawn mow and rake and sweep yesterday made me cringe of what is to come. Jay may be right... Florida doesn't have this ugly crap to do in the yard.

Day 10

Not much has changed. Sun, sun, sun. Drinks, drinks, drinks, and tons of fun and enjoyment and relaxation. My blackberry stopped receiving emails about 9 days ago so having that as one less distraction is nice. Thank you Verizon. Yet Jason can sit next to the pool and go crazy on his iphone. Thank you AT&T. Anyway, sadly counting down the days until we return to Danbury where I believe the local temperature is high of 70 low of 59. Hopefully that continues through to Friday. Jason has taken many photos with his new vid/cam HP combo. A few with mine but have yet to upload anything. I see Saturday being a day of collection, combining videos and then publishing. Patience. Or I could just go back to the last 4 years pictures and just reuse a few of them. ??? I would never.

Day 1 - Saturday

IT WAS and still is HOT!!!!  92 feels like 102. No clouds. All sun. But I ain't complaining.
You step outside and the humidity hits you for the first minute but your body starts to sweat to immediately cool you down. Don't wear anything dark unless you like to change your clothes 4 times a day, and that's not including what you are going to wear out to dinner! Saturday was a day of sleeping in, quick breakfast and out to the pool for the afternoon. Our friend Patty made a great california salad, pork dinner with roasted garlic red potato, brussel sprouts, and chunky applesauce. Can't have pork without applesauce. And of course, we ended our night with ice cream from Scoops. Its a great start to our vacation!

Apple Picking Alert

As I signed up for an email alert when the apples are ready for picking, I got this today : "This is an Apple Alert from Blue Jay Orchards!  You requested that we notify you when MCINTOSH apples were ready for picking.  Please come visit us anytime between 10 am and 5 pm to pick your own apples. Just remember that apple quantities are limited, so come visit us soon!"  This seems rather early this year. I believe we usually attempt our trip after vacation, and just before Halloween. Hopefully this doesn't mean that all the leaves will start falling too.
