More Christmas happenings..

Pittman Visitors Center
Altoona, FL

There's no shortage of things to do here :-)

We've been getting together with our new-found friends
and checking out the Christmas lights.
Saturday night we took a ride over to the Villages
to see the entertainment that they offer free every night!

We went to Sumter Landing and Spanish Village to listen to music played by a duo, then a band,
playing great country songs, oldies, and of course some Christmas songs.
It was nice to sit outside in shorts!

Yesterday we had a 'brunch' sitting outside in 80 degree weather.
We were introduced to a new way to eat omelettes.
Called 'omelette in a bag'..
Put two eggs in a freezer ziploc bag,
add chopped veggies, meats, whatever..

 Then drop it into boiling water for 15 minutes..

Viola, instant omelette!

We all contributed different brunch items..
hash brown casserole, biscuits & gravy,
fresh fruit, and bloody marys.

We all had a great time!

It's back to work in the forest this morning.
Supposed to be 85 degrees today,
but a 'cold' front is coming through tonight, 
dropping temps to the mid 60's tomorrow.
Brrr.. :-)


  1. Oh what fun! Have a good work day :) Let's plan to meet somewhere in the middle after the holidays. I'm sure we can come up with something :) Merry Christmas!

  2. We need to plan to get together too. We are in Chiefland which I think is maybe 40 miles from you. I don't think we are far from Gail and Rick.

  3. I love Christmas lights! Sounds like you guys are keeping busy. I'm with Gail; we need to meet up after the holidays. Maybe a kayaking regatta?!

  4. From you post and the comments it sounds like you two are in high demand! :-)
    We'll be down in Nakomis after the holidays. I don't think that's very close to you unfortunately so I guess we'll miss out on all this planned fun. DARN!

  5. I bet you don't miss the cold at all! Omlet in a bag sounds interesting. I think I'll try it.

  6. Florida life is definitely agreeing with you! Merry Christmas! :c)

  7. We made omlettes in a bag with the scouts a few years ago. Enjoy the nice weather. Wish it was a little warmer here.

  9. Free entertainment? That's our kind of deal!

    Bundle up now for those chilly temps. ;-)
