January in Florida

We continue to hang out here on the beach in Destin.  It’s so nice to know that we don’t have to move again until the end of the month.  Yesterday it stormed all day and the waves were awesome, but it was too cold to swim.  I thought of my sister Jane, who loves playing in the waves more than anybody I know.

I have found a new “tribe” of fellow tennis players and played twice last week.  I would love to play every day, but my heel is still quite painful so I’m learning to be content with what I can do. Most of my fellow players are ten years older than me and many of them have braces or at least war stories of past injuries so, again, I’m just thankful that I’m able to play.

I’ve been hard at work setting up OrganizedKamper.com and it’s fun to begin a new project.  I should get my business cards today.  Next week, I’m planning to go to Tampa to the largest RV show in the country and not only check out new RVs but hopefully talk to people who might be able to help me figure out what to do next.  The few Rvers I’ve talked to would love help getting organized, but I don’t know how to make that happen.  Anyway, it’s exciting because there are a lot of possibilities.

Saturday night we met a family who parked next to us on the beach.  They just came for one night, but we hit it off right away.  They didn’t tow their car since it was such a short trip and, remembering what that’s like, I went and picked up pizza for us all.  I’m grateful for those times of meeting new people and hearing their stories.

Brent sat on the beach in front of Fred the other day and several people came up and started conversations.  I’m hoping for more real connections this year.

Guess that’s it for now.  I hope 2018 is treating you well!  I’m really working on being intentional and am seeing good results so far.

Before I knew that “grateful” was going to be one of my three buzz words for 2018, I bought this pillow in Waco at Magnolia Farms.  It’s funny how these little reminders can be so helpful…
