Well… We’ve Been on Vacation!

DSC_2534 - Copy
Geesh, I missed you all! We headed to Florida the 10th when the temps hit single digits in good old Missouri and said “hey” to the Tiny Ten today. We are happy to be back… nah, that’s a lie. It was and is beautiful in Venice, Florida… why would we want to leave the “Sunshine State”? I am going to get back to visiting blogs and getting caught up on commenting, I really missed commenting. I missed partying in comments and being in touch with all of you. I tried to follow and read your posts but commenting was crazy frustrating from my phone and iPad. Thankfully I was able to keep up with a few people on Instagram. Does anyone have a suggestion for easy, unbefuddled commenting. Does the WordPress App help? Picture taker was CH for this photo.

Hey Ho here I go… It’s going to be like reading a wonderful book getting caught up with all of you!

    1. Good Evening Nancy! Why didn’t we get a picture? I plan to do a couple of posts and tell about our meet up… πŸ™‚ We had a great time with you and BFF, so happy to have spent the afternoon with you. Did BFF eat the rest of his cheesecake?

      1. He did eat it . . . and enjoyed it every bite.
        Except for one. I ate that one! :mrgreen:

        I’m guessing we didn’t take photos because you and I were too busy yakking! I look forward to see more photos of your time in Venice.

        1. I’m not looking at it as a nightmare… it’s gotten so ridiculous every time I sign in to my dashboard that I am laughing at it and give it a few choice words. After spending a day with the constantly changing selections for reader, view site, and the teeny sign out AND the notification format I am feeling quite proud of myself that I can get signed out and find comments!

  1. I’m glad you’re back! But you look awfully good wading at the shore. I’ve never been able to log into the WP app on my iPad because I opted for the extra security log-in (two-step verification) where a random code has to be entered. I found the only way I could comment was replying by email. I thought it was going to be so much easier to blog on the iPad with the reader, but I guess I’ll never know! Good to see you back!

  2. That is such a terrific shot!! Welcome back! Glad you had a super time! xx

    I find iphone impossible for reading and especially commenting, but I do use Feedly as my reader generally and there is the Feeddler app for ipad (which links to Feedly) which works ok(ish)!

    1. Carolyn I use Feedly on my laptop, it’s how I find my way to you and Mr. Austin. And Feedly is on my iPad but when I opened it up every little thing went to hell in a handbasket. I love Feedly on my laptop though!!!

  3. Welcome home! I just know you enjoyed some sunny, and WARMER days before getting back to the frosty Tiny Ten. Love the photo CH took of you dipping those toes into the water down there……That little getaway will keep you warm for a while when you go through your photos and the memories you made. You were missed!!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

    1. It was beautiful there Pam! We didn’t want to leave. We had stuff to do here at home this year and they were full up when we called in September for reservations.. that’s never happened before. We made next year’s reservations before we left and we are staying longer.. HAPPY! I made HAPPY my ringtone yesterday but noBODY ever calls me.. they want to text!

  4. How great that you had such wonderful days… I miss it to walk on the beach …. not only because of the cold temperatures, it’s also because of the pup who tries to avoid wet feet when we are on the beach (that’s a challenge lol). Not sure if I would suggest the WP app, things what have WP on the label are mostly haunted by the WP-gremlin :l)

    1. Barbara I loaded the WP app this morning to the iPad and I like it… πŸ˜€ I will see how it goes. Have no intention of doing a blog post from the app but I did want to be able to comment and use the reader. I sometimes have trouble keeping comments short.. πŸ™„

  5. OH AND WE MISSED YOU TOO…I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT COMMENTING FROM YOUR PHONE.
    IT IS SUCH A STRUGGLE TO COMMENT FROM MY iPad. I have to hunt and peck on the virtual keyboard and sometimes it acts crotchety.
    Madi in a nutshell since you have be gone is “she is still sassy”.
    I’m glad you had a nice visit in Florida. I have a friend spending january in Naples, FL and February on Marco Island, FL
    hugs cecilia and madi

    1. Carol I don’t know about looking happy, I kind of thought I looked like I was in pain. BUT I was happy! I love it there and don’t want to come home. We always keep extending.. πŸ˜€ Thanks for missing me! Yeah, I was shocked when I had to put on socks today!

  6. I knew it! I kinda thought you might be doing some beach time…something you had said made me think that. Glad you had a great time and are back safe and sound! Great photo of you…how was the water?
    I’m still on blog break, but it’s hard to be “quiet” all the time. lol! We haven’t been anywhere exciting other than a weekend to KC to visit our son. He took us out for some really good BBQ and I checked out a couple of flea markets. Okay, I’ll hush up now. I’ve gotta run to COMO to pick up daughter’s payroll for her and hopefully get my hair cut. See ya later!

    1. The water was COLD! There are always brave souls that get in the water but I haven’t been in the water other than to wade for years. I know what you mean about it being hard to be quiet.. πŸ˜€ Glad to hear from you Cheryl!

    1. Hello Tex! Yes, I always wear a visor in Florida because the sun kills my eyeballs if I don’t. I wear a visor pretty often here in the summer too. I would love to be able to wear a baseball cap but I look goofy in them! CH loves looking for shark teeth. We didn’t find but a couple this year. I think the early morning crowd beat us to them.

    1. Hello! I found you in spam just now! That’s just so wrong.. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your visit. Blogging is addictive but I find it easy to take long breaks when I lose all motivation. Thanks the heavens for me I have an understanding and patient Husband that does not mind my blog commenting addiction. Now he is trying to adjust to my Instagram obsession.. πŸ˜€
