maybe the computer is working now…

wayne found some viruses on this computer.  ugh, I don’t even like typing on it, because I feel they’re going to come back.

a bunch of blah blah technical stuff was done, thank god for wayne, but…my screen just went black a little bit ago.  so now I’m trying to imagine that it was just getting that out of its system.

self-delusion, thy name is grace.

anyhow, pictures from our trip down south…

after a long, very long, two day drive down to the florida panhandle, we were ecstatic to finally arrive at our destination, a condo called the palms of seagrove.  on the beach.  paradise.

we arrived at around three in the afternoon and were overjoyed to find that the place was just as nice as it looked in the online pictures, maybe even more so.  we didn’t go through VRBO or Air bnb or anything like that, I just somehow found this property while obsessively looking at the all the properties on those websites plus more.  we got it through a realty company, and so I was a little worried that the place would be a dump, because who knows what a place really looks like, you can put up a photo from any time at all…

ecstatic.  I’d like to go back down there right now, as a matter of fact.  I’ve had it with weather that’s not lovely and spring-like.

here we are on our balcony.  the weather was perfect the entire time we were there; it was unseasonably warm for the panhandle, yay!

this is looking in at the living room/kitchen from the balcony.  if we’d had more people with us, there’d have been plenty of room.  but it was nice that it was just us two.

and of course I immediately spread stuff all over the kitchen counter.  ironically, the place is a little outdated, and the kitchen cabinets are identical to ours.  need to get our replaced…someday…

after lugging waaaay to much stuff up the three flights of stairs (ours was on the top floor), we got down to the beach in time for sunset.  there weren’t many people around.

there’s our building – our condo was the farthest on the right.  hmm, I see there’s a light on in the unit next door – we never heard any of our neighbors.


I should paint myself one of these; I finally saw it over the stove later that night.

the place had a lovely big bedroom but it was in the front and we wanted to hear the crashing waves while we slept, so we pulled out the sleeper sofa.

at about one in the morning I just couldn’t take it anymore – it was your typical wretched sleeper sofa, sagging way down in the middle, terrible…I staggered up to the bedroom, thinking that kevin sleeps so soundly that he’d stay on the sofa.  but soon he joined me, and we didn’t try sleeping in the living room any more.

but it was awesome to get up in the morning and go right out on the balcony…maybe we can go back and stay a little longer next time.  it would be nice if we could find a condo that allowed cats, but on the other hand, would we really want to take our cats on that very long drive?  it would be too stressful for everybody I think.

and that’s it for our first day on the beach.

ok then,


p.s. there’s definitely something wrong with this computer; it stopped working a few times while trying to furiously get this typed.  ugh.  technology.
