Spring Break: March 19th - 27th Odds and Ends

With no travel plans made for this spring break, we are happy to be exploring our local sights.
I actually washed the old 2002 truck to spruce it up, made some home cooked dinners, went shopping with AA (books, and more books), plus her usual golfing with High School student Lauren (on 22nd) and then 18 holes played with Ms. Penny (on the 21st).
I made shepherd's pie only in a baked potato, came out tasty if not very pretty!

Painting at Carolyn's home over the weekend (17-18-19th). Every project seems to take longer than planned or I slow her down!!
We sanded, first coat of paint, then second coat. Carolyn did the ceiling and trim too.
The old truck:
We have slowed down due to Ford having a cold and AA's allergy cough is back. So some of our days have some rest time included.
I took AA and her friend Connor to the Catty Shack on Thursday, then Friday was not very eventful. Saturday AA went to the signing up of the Eagle Harbor PGA Jr. Golf Team. Coach Bryan had a fun marshmallow hitting contest and had the U.S. Kids demo of new clubs.
This is the trophy from the Fall PGA Junior League, the Eagle Harbor team won the city championship:
Hitting a large marshmallow!
 Coach Bryan sets up some fun kids golfing events!
Later on Saturday, we went to dinner at Biscotti's, haven't been there is a long time. We ordered our favorite salads and AA now loves the salmon and lentils salad. Lastly, we headed to the River House and visited with Arnie, Janet, Maureen and Hugh; perfect weather - in the 70's and sunny. We are enjoying springtime sitting on our screen porch too.
Sunday, with Ford still resting (her hasn't been sleeping well at night), AA and I went to church, had lunch then Ford did take her to play a round of golf (which ended up being very slow!).
We were going to jump in the pool but relaxed, eating dinner on the screen porch.
Monday was a full day, letting Daddy stay home. AA and I went to her piano lesson, we changed the date since I wanted to take her to the St. Augustine Fort too. We headed to the Fort and walked for about an hour and a half.
Then lunched at Urban Back 40. After driving home, Ford took AA golfing then we finally jumped in the pool for the first time of the season. The air temperature had dropped into the low 70's and the pool water was 76 degrees. AA swam a lot, while I just walked in the shallow end. Tuesday, March 28th is back to school!
We have lost our photo editing program which included how I copied my photos from the camera to the computer. Until we find another one we like, my picture taking will be a lot less and probably on the iPad! {Found FastStone Image Viewer!}
