Vacation Village in Kissimmee, Florida

I am in one of my favorite places on the face of the earth – Orlando, Florida.

We (me, my brother, and my sister-in-law) have been here for about a week….it is Sunday morning. I would normally be getting ready for church back home in Illinois. But today I am lazing around drinking coffee, breathing in the warm Florida air, and thanking God for how wonderful the humid air makes me feel. I know that sounds weird to most people – that HUMID AIR makes me feel good. But I grew up very near the banks of the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, so my sinuses are programmed for WET AIR. I am lovin’ it!

We made the trip by van from Illinois to Orlando, leaving on Jan 7th, arriving on the 9th. It was relatively cold (according to the locals) when we arrived here but for us it felt like a heat wave. We checked in to our condo and got settled in right away.

We then made a trip farther south on the Gulf side to visit friends in Bonita Springs. From there we headed to Sanibel Island & Captiva Island, where we ate at the Mucky Duck located on the beach. Fantastic beach atmosphere and good food were enjoyed there.

Here are some pics I found on Google Images of the area we visited (I forgot to bring my USB cable to upload my own pics) :

The pictures below were taken at the Marriott’s Grande Vista Hotel in Orlando Florida this past winter. It was like paradise there.

This is a new and improved blog (so they say). We will find out if that is true. Let’s talk. About anything you want to talk about…..except I really hate to talk politics cause everybody gets so dramatic and sometimes nasty about it. I am a single issue voter—I only vote for pro-life candidates. I don’t really care what political party they belong to as long as they are truly pro-life. And that’s all I want to say about that.

Does anybody have any family news? Leave a comment if you do and I will post about it.

Well, I gotta go to sleep cause I gotta get up in the morning.

Love to all,
