Shopping, Dining Out and Meeting up with Friends

It's been another busy week.  We continue to have a hard time trying to find an area rug for the living room.  After returning the first one we ordered on line from Home Depot - we found another one while there shopping in the store.  We asked them to order the rug, and made arrangement for them to come and measure the office and the guest bedroom for carpeting.  They came and measured, but we are STILL waiting for the area rug to come in.   Hopefully before XMAS!

We were invited for dinner with our new friends, Al and Barb ( Can't believe I still don't have a photo!)  They had us over for a fish fry.  We had shell crackers ( fish that the two of them caught fishing right here on the lake.  She fixed some backed beans and macaroni and cheese.  Delicious.

We went to the local Placid Lakes Country Club for pasta night with Nick and Tonyia and will definitely go back there again.  Best pasta we have ever ordered out!

In the meantime we ordered a new wagon wheel rocker to go with the bench on the front porch,  found a few more wall hangings for the living room and started to do a little decorating for the holidays.

On Sunday our friends Buddy and Diane came to visit for the day.  It was great to see the two of them again.    We feel good that they could finally fit us in to their busy schedule.  We saw them last back in September when they visited us in The Villages.  They are now back in Wauchula. Both of them sing and play an instrument, and during the winter months here in Florida they meet up with other "jammers" in the area and sing/entertain at several of the parks. They do this most every night - and on Sunday mornings at their church....

It was nice to just sit and talk and catch up on what's been going on.  About 4:30
Rich put the Chicken Kabobs on the grill.

I finished the potato and,corn on the cob inside and we all enjoyed a delicious meal.

And thank Buddy and Diane, for the lovely gift.

A beautiful Christmas Pointsetta which adds the perfect holiday touch to our front porch!

On Wednesday we have dinner planned with our friends Nathan and Krystal in Sebring.    We have not seen these two since we left The Villages in September!  It will be so nice to visit with them again.
