Our Awesome Travels

More warm memories, plus a couple of todays pics too. We pretending its almost summer.

Where are we today ?
        A few more pics of some nice warm places we have been, sure is warming us up. And even another nice sunny day here too.
         A few of these pics were taken on our last Cruise in 2008, our third. And many more than that for Suzie (BG "Before George" when she worked in travel). It was a great cruise, but we have become spoiled living in our RV. We can tour all over, see some wonderful sights, don't have to pack a bag, sleep in our own bed every night, and cook our own meals, something we both really enjoy.

Cozumel Mexico
I am dressed for the occasion
       Now this next picture is Niagara Falls lit up at night in the winter, very pretty but we much prefer it in the summer.
     We actually had an amazing day! 45 days since I have been back here and the 5th day that Suzie did not have to drive her Dad to Kitchener or Stratford Hospital and the first day we did not have to do any cleaning or organizing. A day to ourselves ! Yahoo!!! Just the two of us. Awesome is the only word I can think of.
    Well I spent an hour this morning with the snow blower and shovel just pilling up a few more inches of snow we had last night. Snow mountains are being built.
        Went to the Wilmot Rec Center walking track and logged in a few more miles then we actually got to enjoy our e-readers for a bit!  Pretending we are in the sunny south, family room downstairs, fireplace going and afternoon sun shining is almost like the desert if we don't look outside at all the snow. Even our own "Happy hour".
      Now keeping with the theme we craved some chicken wings and fries, both done in the oven (just cause its here and too cold outside). Chopped up some veggies and made a yogurt dip and my suicide sauce, sure did hit the spot.
      See we can enjoy this weather by pretending it does not exist. Back in the day (many years ago) when I belonged to CB clubs my handle was "Day Dreamer" as I have always been, still works for me now too. I can dream it and make it happen.
       Thanks again for dropping in for a peak and hope you enjoy your time and these sunny days too, no matter where you are.

  2. I kinda like that pink sombrero... and the boots are fetching ;-) I'd go on a cruise about now, except it might be too hard to come back to this lousy weather! Is your suicide sauce in your recipes?

    1. Sharon thought you would like my get up. Yes it would be hard to come back to this weather for sure.
      The sauce is a just a great habanero sauce that I buy and add to whatever is handy to make it flaming hot, maybe even give you some is we can still get it, next time we see you.

      They are amazing any thing but the winter is just awesome, even though I don't like the cold.

    1. Cruises are like and RV, or actually a floating resort, moving from place to place. I thinkit sure beats a stationary resort.
      The day was perfect, great therapy.

  8. Glad things are sunny there and that you have all those wonderful memories of sun and fun! We were going to be headed to Flagstaff next week but looks like we will be changing our plans a bit. The low is going to be around -11C next week so hope that brings you a little warmth knowing that it will be cold here in Arizona as well, at least in the northern part.

    1. We were in Mid march one year to the Grand canyon and a lots of snow, so now we avoid that area in the winter. Have fun no matter where you are.

  9. We also like to brighten our days with remembering those warm days we had down south. Sure try to get back there,

  10. I love your new dress-up clothes. Maybe you ought to think about taking those with you south next year and see what kind of reaction you get from others. It might so happen that you'll have a bigger site than you normally have. Or, maybe it'll be smaller because of all the curiosity seekers.
