February 28 - Sunday 64 degrees continual all day. Bright sunshine w/ breeze
It seems strange with the sun shining brightly, the temperature doesn't go up, but who is complaining, it is warmer than what we would have at home and it isn't raining.
We had coffee and dressed quickly and set off for church. The church we are attending is down town Key West, and there isn't any place to park, so we go early to enable us to walk from a parking place. Lou and I becoming very comfortable with our church. We have become acquainted with the couple that sit in front of us. They are from Long Island and live here nine months of the year. He is a retired psychologist. This Sunday he had a wonderful pastel pink sports jacket on and don't you that caught DH's attention, although DH looked very dapper in his medium blue shorts jacket with a white and tiny blue stripe shirt w/ a blue flowered tie. It is fun to dress a bit different here in Florida.
After church today we went to our favorite Cuban Restaurant on Catherine Street - El Soboney, and today we ordered Cuban Coffee and were pleasantly surprised with a mixture of strong coffee with a hint of chocolate, rich creme and some sweetener. Of course, I had to have more yellow rice and black bean soup to put on top of the rice. I can make a meal from that alone.
This afternoon we have enjoyed the paper in a leisure setting inside. We have played with Estee until we have tired her out. Today she seems a bit more like herself. After talking with Sue yesterday, we have decided to treat her as if she has diabetes, with a very careful diet and exercise until we can get her into see a vet. We are putting her into her cage when we leave her and I know it hurts Lou more than it hurts her. This way we don't have to worry about accidents, and her little bed fits nicely inside of it.
Tonight we are going to walk back to church and enjoy a concert that is going to be held at the church we are attending. Seven choirs from the Key West area are combining their talents along with the men from the Coast Guard Ship Mohawk that were the first responders to the earthquake victims in Haiti to raise money for the cause. We checked the mileage today and it will be our usual two mile walk. Will solve two things at one time.
We have praise to offer for the safe arrival, in Rome for the kids. It was fun to track their flight, although they had a bit of a problem with pick pockets and lost some cash. A good lesson was learned by them.
