NC Snow, FL fun 'n sun and Kenya update

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Doctor's appointments required I be in Florida this week. I've been delighted to be here. I did 75 minutes in the pool that was heated to 84 F with an outdoor temp of 72. Absolutely lovely.

When I returned homefrom the pool, I had a message from the family keeping an eye on my NC home. They had had an inch of snow, and were expecting at least another inch.

She's going to send me pictures so I can see my house in the snow. I'm missing all the pictures I wanted to get, but my body is blessed by the warmth.

Please remind me of this in August if I start complaining about how hot I am when I'm supposed to be getting in my walking miles!!

In the meantime, I'd better get the Yorkie out for a run.

Kenya update: the group arrived safely, and have traveled to the village where they are to build the medical center. Everyone in the village greeted them. The luggage was finally straightened out and my sister was finally able to take excedrin for her headache. No internet at Nairobi airport or the motel. So everyone was calling home with the group phone.

My sister has her own room and mosquito netting is installed over the bed.
She's been travelling 3 days without a shower, so she's hoping to clean up and get a good night's sleep.

Speaking of walking in the heat of summer, technically it is summer in Kenya right now. They probably think it is summer there year round since they are right on the equator. I'd need a ton of sun screen!!

    Just a few short years and I'll be basking in the FL sunshine too! Can't wait.

    Glad to hear your sister is safe.
The warm temperature sounds SO GOOD to me right now! Just came in from a very, very cold bike ride.

    The pool sounds delicious! So glad you could enjoy it. It is hard to picture NC under snow, but then, this has been a crazy weather year. My best wishes for the medical clinic - how exciting!

    Great the news finally arrived so now you can be reassured all's well.
Great job with your dog walks that is a great motivation. Enjoy your warmth. I like people but I do not like crowds or crowded highways it has been a nice day today but cold. That snow at your house is heading our way. Glad all is well, emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, I love living in Florida. At least we have sunny skies and warm temps. I recall many cold winters in Ohio. I don't want to go through that again.

    Glad to hear your sister made it ok.
Enjoy your nice warm weather. We are in the teens here near Chicago. Even the dogs don't want to go for walks, just outside to take care of business and then they want back in right away!
