Best wishes to all visitors of this site!
Time is flying, the older one gets the faster it goes.....During the summer months we had our rubber roof serviced ( cleaned, caulked and painted ) and Dieter washed the entire trailer. Every physical action is very tiring for us. When we drive shopping about 3 times per month to buy groceries, I need the entire afternoon to put everything away - meaning emtying boxes into glasses and into containers with screw lids to prevent ant invasions. Dieter has aching legs and muscles and I have a left knee problem. My walking is more of a limping sometimes - and it hurts. But being careful by walking and using the steps with the greatest attention prevented me sofar from falling. I worked in Homes for the Elderly and sick and I know what a broken hip can do to me.
As a housewife I cook every day, bake infrequently, clean as I have to .......
,,,,and stay in contact with relatives and friends via the Internet. The computer is a wonderful tool in our world. I learned a lot, have fun and laughter in facebook, wrote my book with it, blogged and worked on websites. Writing letters is easy and working with pictures also. Our modern world with advanced technics has its devlish sites but also its good and helpful ones.
Our Zephyr Palms RV Park here is fully booked, but several empty spaces are still waiting for people who wanted or had to be at home or with relatives in other states before coming to Zephyrhills - after all holidays. We have direct neighbors now, each of them having a dog of smaller breed. One is an elderly nice man and the other ones are a very friendly couple in their 60's, I assume. We welcomed them yesterday on New Years Day with a fresh cup of coffee.
We had a Pork Roast with all trimmings at Christmas Day and a Duck Roast yesterday, both times with German Potato Dumplings as one side dish. We had no "mum" to participate in the clubhouse dinners, we wanted to be alone.
Our Immune Systems are working fine, we had no cold or fevers in the last 2 years, not even a runny nose. Our blood tests were normal for our age, low cholesterol, liver working fine, our kidneys are in ailment state 3, but we are having no complaints. Our ticker is strong and regular.
Our cat Ellie is a joy to live with, she is obidient like a good dog, does nothing to anger us in any form, she never plays with our stuff laying on the desk or the table. She plays with a long shoe lace and a ping-pong ball and sits outside with Dieter and then she leads Dieter on the leash for walks and checking out the neighborhood- haha.
Here are the latest pictures of Dieter and myself .
