We're baaaaack! No place like home-even if it's 50 degrees cooler. I was worried about the car starting after having been parked in the hotel parking garage for 12 days of frigid cold temperatures and a 5-year-old battery but it kicked right over with no trouble at all with the exception of a low tire pressure reading which is not unusual for this time of year.
As soon as we got in, we fired up the wood stove and in no time it seemed like we had never left.
Next trip? For me it's at the end of March and early April with my daughter's family for a week. The girls have their spring break earlier than usual this year.
One final note about our time at our condo in Florida. We finally found a reliable, competent handy man who fixed a variety of small but annoying problems that involved some plumbing and electrical. Other things I'm usually able to do like small repairs, hanging blinds and curtains, replacing shower heads, etc.
The next problem to tackle is our condo water shut off valve. That's being repaired Friday.
Let's hope that's it for a while.
