Just a Relaxing Perfect Weather Weekend

This past weekend was absolutely beautiful.  For those of you up north, well you'll find this hard to understand.  But it was mostly cloudy/overcast and comfortably cool.  This has been the first weekend in a very long time that you could actually enjoy being outside.  No intense sun and very low humidity.

So we enjoyed our coffee on the lanai, worked in the yard ( mostly pulling weeds) and enjoying the beautiful birds that graced the yard.  A couple of our favorites; the Blue Heron and the White Ibis.  And we could kick ourselves for not making time to go out fishing.  It would have been a great weekend to be on the water.

With the high temperatures in the upper 70's / low 80's I had a request to make Chili........... So it was Chili and cornbread for dinner on Sunday. It was delicious.

Left overs for another day, and the rest in the freezer!

Starting to get serious about getting the kitchen redone.  We're talking about a possible face-lift to the cupboards ( I want to keep them white), new granite counter tops, with brick or stone back splash, and all new appliances. Can't believe what a new French Door Refrigerator costs!!!  We'll see how far the budget goes........something might have to wait until next year.  Gotta keep enough set aside for the summer vacation!
