Snow…in early November!

Snow…in early November!

Snow…in early November say whaaaa?

It is official Mother Nature is laughing at me.

Big-time.

Just when I thought I had this life by the kahunas, she threw me a FAST ball.

I swung…and whiffed.

BAD.

The hubs is also in the doghouse…here …let me explain….

On Sunday, we were cleaning up the yard and readying the goldfish pond for winter. Leaves were raked, pumps were changed out in the pond.

I began untying all of the cushions to the patio furniture, for they were still waiting for ONE LAST NICE DAY.

The hubs wanted me to wait, ” 1)It’s still nice out, 2)I might smoke a cigar out here one night, 3)what if I want to sit under the stars one last time?”

Really?

We have lived here 10 years and that has never happened without force.

EVER.

Stares and crickets back and forth…a tug o’war with eyes and subliminal messages.

 I conceded…who am I to argue with him?

I am stupid…that’s who.

He really wanted to just sneak in to watch football. I was duped.

And then, on Monday, THIS HAPPENED

palm tree snow home   beach chair snow

Yes….that IS a pool float still sitting on the chaise lounge.

Why? Ask my husband.

Perhaps he was gonna use it as an added cushion for his adventure under the stars.

NOT HAPPY.

If you read my bio (here), you would know that I LOVE…no I LOOOOVE warm weather, palm trees and beaches.

I am nicknamed ‘The Palm Tree Princess’.

So, today…I thought we could travel somewhere warm….somewhere far away.

Wanna come with?

Here is a margarita…good, isn’t it? :-)

Now sit back…we leave in a few!

Bags are packed and we are ready to go!!

In 2011 we visited the Riviera Maya, Mexico. :-)

My kids love to fly and handle it well. Look at those clouds!

We are headed to the beach cabana chairs. They are like beds with a roof, and they are DIVINE.
