Where are we today ?
If we didn't wish you Merry Christmas before we are doing it now.
A good night's sleep and its now Christmas Morning. Looks like Santa Claus was here, we woke up, are upright and breathing, warm southern weather, no snow and have each other, what more can we ask for? We don't exchange gifts much anymore, if we need it we buy it and call it a Christmas gift. Oh we had Tornado warnings but thats normal for here, we are getting used to that.
The Yule log on tv and Christmas music, coffees and some computing got us going. Then I set to whip a batch of beans in our slow cooker, with bacon, onions and pineapple, get them going by 7am so they would be done to perfection for the Christmas pot luck dinner here at the clubhouse for 12 noon. The resort supplied the meat, ham and turkey even thou it was called for ham only.
While the beans were cookin away we made and received our Christmas morning phone calls and skype videos. So nice to keep in touch with family over the holidays during the Christmas season. Even thou we saw almost everybody just 9 days ago.

Now full tummys and a much fuller wallet we headed home for a relaxing afternoon. Read outside for a while, still very warm out. But we were kept busy keeping an eye on the skies, internet and local weather tv channel. Following the severe storm and tornado warnings and watches. Coming in off the Gulf Of Mexico.
As of 7 o'clock our weather was pretty good no winds or rain, even thou a few tornadoes touched down in Mobile 27 miles west of us. Now its further north and west of us. But the forecast says there could be issues in central Florida tomorrow, so if you are there keep an eye on you weather channels.
Other than a few possible weather issues today, was absolutely a great quiet relaxing Christmas Day, hope you had a good one too, with family and or friends.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit.
