Happy 6th Birthday Jackson!!

Red heart

Yes our baby boy will be 6 years old on the 3rd.  Can’t believe that in May it will be 6 years since he became a member of our family.  Can’t imagine our lives without that big lug!!!!

Speaking of special occasions, yesterday, the 1st, was one of my sister’s 50th wedding anniversary.  That is quite an accomplishment these days.  My other sister who is also wintering in the States and myself, got together and had flowers sent to her.  I contacted a local florist in her area and made arrangements for an ‘arrangement’ to be delivered to her.  They did a beautiful job.  She sent me a picture of the bouquet. 

I thought they were quite beautiful and my sister was thrilled to receive them.

We had a very windy day today and had to take down our awning and sunscreen.  We’re also having a bit of a cold spell.  The furnace has been cycling on and off all night.  We have a electric fireplace too and we are very surprised how much heat that thing generates.  It’s really great and kind of cozy looking too.

We will be heading home at the end of this month.  We have booked next winters stay in Texas.  We have met some great friends here (and they just happen to have a golden retriever also)  and they have stayed there (in Texas) before and gave it rave reviews.  Their golden, Koby, and Jackson just love each other.  It’s really cute to see the 2 of them together.  They get along so well.  Jackie gets so excited when he sees them walking down the road. 

Well I need to go and get some warm jammies on as it’s really getting nippy so until later…..take care.


  1. Happy birthday to you Jackson! If I were there I would give you a big hug and doggie bone!

    So glad Jackaon has Koby! I would love to see a picture.
