Update, I did sign a new lease and I am here for at least another year. I have decided to keep home base the same and do more "visiting" with friends, both here and out of town. I plan on meeting one of my "oldest" (\meaning the longest one have known) friends next summer. We are going to meet halfway since she lives in West Palm Beach. She was my first roommate in my first apartment. I was 19 and Jan was 21.
On the way to Gainesville to visit Jan, I will have to break up the trip until I can do "longer" trips. I have dear friends in Tallahassee and I plan on staying overnight in a motel and meeting them for dinner. I will stay in a motel because my driving companion Riley ( my Yorkie) will be with me. After a break in Tallahassee I will head to Gainesville to see Jan.
I know this is pretty far in the future, but I have to get ready to go. Remember I am not the younger vagabond I was a few years ago.
Tomorrow I will start my a Spring favorite of going to gardens centers and picking out new plants for my patio. I have several who have survived but I want a true garden out there now.
Right now I have a pregnant stray kitty about to give birth in my "garden" on the patio. I will wait until that happens to put all the new plants on it. I have a small gate that I can use to keep them in one place until she is ready to let them go.
It should be interesting, since I have never had a cat., much less kittens, in my 73 years. Always wanted one and now I will have a family of them. Once the babies are given away , I will take her and have her spayed. She can remain my outdoor cat because we have several apartment kitties here and all the mice, lizards, etc.. have disappeared. We are pest free. I wonder if we will have any large Palmetto bugs this year.
So I am a bit wordy today - I must feel better. I will be keeping in touch for sure/
