Location: Avon Park (High 79, Low 63)
It was over a year ago that we booked a cruise to the Eastern Caribbean which is now only six days away! I am so excited for a couple reasons – not only because we are going on a cruise for the first time in a long time (our last cruise was six years ago), but because all of my immediate family is going on the cruise as well…my sister and her family, my brother and his family, my mom, stepdad and the two of us! Looking forward to making a lot of great memories!
This past week was just a week of odds and ends. Harry finished changing the struts on all of our cabinets. Wow. Such a simple change and yet it makes such a difference. The new struts are very solid. Whether it’s open or closed, we can now rest assured that our cabinets will stay the way we leave them.
Another big job down was to caulk a trim piece that runs along the roof and covers the screws of the retaining bracket for the roof membrane. When we arrived here in January, we were shocked to see that almost the entire piece had come loose. It was just held at each end and Harry realized that the only reason we didn’t lose it completely was that he had caulked both ends a few years ago when it started to pop out there. Well, it’s not going anywhere now because Harry spent one morning this week caulking along the whole piece, on both sides of the rig. Take that trim piece!
Other than that, it’s been a normal week. We’ve finished week 2 of our training program and are enjoying cards a couple times a week as there are still quite a few members of our card group here. Most of them plan to head out mid month, so by the time we get back from our cruise the last of the snowbird holdouts will be getting ready to go.
This week’s project – guess we should pack!?! I’m not sure I remember how!!
