Not really, but I'm sure you all know what I mean. The sun finally made an appearance which made the day more cheerful but the air was still chilly.
Anne and Scotty dropped by and we exchanged gifts
Our daughter Sonsearae made our gifts and we nibbled on the spicy nuts and chocolate bark all morning! She also made us a soup mix, Southwestern three bean and barley, that I can't wait to try.
Our Christmas dinner was perfect! We, along with good friends Anne & John Scott and Amy & Dan Farrell went to Hayashi for our Japanese Hibachi dinner. We all ordered our favorites and took a lot of it home to enjoy today. Good food, good friends and great conversations.
Back home Boo was glad to see us because it was dinner time! We changed clothes and settled in to enjoy the rest of the day. Coffee and TV
We did a first for us.....we Skyped! LOL I have a camera on my laptop so we set it up and Sonsearae called and we got to chat with her and Chris....A great way to end our Christmas

Take some time to remember our Military men and women who cannot be home this time of year as they serve our country far and wide.
Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

What do we do when we have nasty weather? There are a list of options and after reading a friends blog about their small rig it got me to thinking.
We only have one tv so it's a tossup about manly shows or girly shows. We both spend a lot of time on our computers playing way to many games or surfing the web. You can go to the mall and watch people, but I'm not sure searching for a parking spot would be fun today. We usually go to Barnes and Nobles to sip a warm drink and read magazines because, as you know, full timers shouldn't have subscriptions!
But you can visit any number of local attractions where ever you are!

The above critters are pretty to look at and don't bother me. But the mosquitoes we have this year are about to drive me nuts! Even with the wind and breezes we have they drive you indoors most of the time. And there are some bugs down here that don't like me that raise a welt that itches for three or four days.
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

It was interesting to taste how different the beer is in the Spiegelau glasses. Even the smell was different! Kinda like tasting wines.
The first tasting was SOS, "This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma"
The second beer was Purple Haze, "a crisp, American style wheat beer with raspberry puree added after filtration"
Third was Amber, "a Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops"
The last one was the 25th Anniversay Vanilla Double Dog, "Turbodog is the inspiration for this robust dark ale. It is brewed with generous amounts of pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. Whole natural vanilla beans are added during the aging process.This combination provides a rich body and color with chocolate, vanilla and toffee-like flavor"
This last one was new to us and we both liked it!

I love the posters/signs they have on the wall
Yesterday I was up early enough to spend some time outside with my coffee and Cindy was watering. She pointed out the banana blooming and the wee bananas. So I went back later and took a picture.
Last night we were at the Tiki Bar and Nicole and Kevin showed up. We enjoyed chatting with them before heading home around 2100.

We also had our dinner outside. Around 1900 I went inside and Jim followed.

This squirrel entertains me while I try to capture him with the camera. You should see him bouncing around on the canvas shelter on the rig next door!

Our neighbors have a lot of potted plants and this butterfly was enjoying some nectar. Poor thing has a section of his wing missing
This is the meandering road into the campground. By the way it's call a resort.....but don't believe it! It's more like a fish camp. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure when there is water in the lake the fishermen will be here.
This is the lake......
There might be gators but I don't think there is any swimming going on
Boat slips are ready for gardening! There are no amenities here other than the wifi and cable. During the season I'm sure they charge for electricity. We've seen the meters at every site. We got Passport America Rates for the week which made it reasonable. It's 24 bucks a night for very close grassy sites
