Life Lately


It’s been a quiet few weeks, which is typical for us this time of year.  No out of town visitors, not a whole lot of things on the calendar and mostly surviving the heat and humidity, while keeping one eye out as hurricanes form and develop or not.  Luckily, so far, all is well.

Football season has started and if you have followed this blog, you know I love my Michigan State Spartans. The first game always brings a longing to be on campus; tailgating and sitting in our great season ticket seats. So many wonderful memories on perfect fall football Saturdays.  

Before the game last week, we had dinner with our Florida Spartan friends at a delicious Mexican restaurant. It was a tradition to go to our favorite Mexican restaurant in East Lansing after the football games for a victory margarita, so this time, we celebrated the win in advance.

I finally watched the new Downton Abbey movie and thought it was good.  There were some interesting plot twists and I was entertained.  The movies will never be as good as the original series, especially the early years, but they are like getting back in touch with old friend at this point.  No real surprises, but a reminder of something good.

Otherwise, it’s been the usual sunsets, pool time and lots of golf.  Also, looking forward to our upcoming trip to northern Michigan that will include, my nephew’s wedding, visiting friends and family, a Mackinac Island visit and of course, more golfing.

Happy Friday!


  1. OH how fun, I do remember who you cheer for. I know that you miss being there but watching is good too when sharing a margarita with friends. Enjoy your day, hope it is picture perfect. HUGS!

    1. Lots of rain in the forecast this weekend, but if you are a gardener like me I never complain 😀 Always more sun coming in FL.

  2. Sounds like things are rosy in your neck of the woods! Have a great weekend!

    1. I am one of the crazy ones who actually like summer in FL. Love how quiet it is.

  3. Sounds as though you have had a good into summer. I miss playing golf… Just can’t do it anymore. Happy that football season has started. Penn State won their season opener. So glad that this summer is almost over. It has been brutal. Hope you’re having a good weekend
