Day 10

It is day 10 of the snow and we still have some remains in our yard. This is even after having rain all day yesterday! but it is still January, so we can't expect Spring to be too near!

Still no school and icey roads abound. But we were able to get out today and go to the movies.

Semi-Wordless Wednesday

Since we are still "stuck" in the house, we decided to get some exercise! Mike won 2 our of the 3 games, but I had a record score on my win and also had a "6-pack"!!

2nd Snow Day

The country mice were able to get out and come to see the city mice today!

T and R went sledding in our neighborhood and had a great time.

Schools are out again tomorrow. It is supposed to get down to 19 tonight and not get above freezing until Friday afternoon! The schools may never open again!!

Mike and I got out to go to the Post Office after lunch to mail the New Year's cards!! The main roads have been cleared but the side roads are still just slush that will freeze tonight and stay that way. We could not get back up our hill, so the van is sitting at the bottom of the hill. Mack was our hero and our taxi and came and took us up the hill! I guess we can walk down and use the van...we just won't be able to get back up the hill anytime soon!!

Snowy Monday

We woke up to about 8" of snow this morning.A beautiful spot of color in the trees. Looking down the street.

We did not get out today and probably won't again tomorrow. Schools are cancelled for tomorrow...not sure about Wednesday. This snow was drier than the one we had at Christmas and was not as conducive for making snowmen. The snow didn't stick on the tree limbs and give a Christmas card picture, but it was still very pretty. We didn't have much more snow during the day but it still never got above freezing.

We packed up and headed back to "reality" and stopped along the way for a "bite" to eat!! Had a great week away and glad you could join us along the way!

This morning we had a breakfast of bacon, sausage, pancakes and scrambled eggs in the condo before we finished our Scavenger Hunt in Sea Pines. It was a bike and camera event that we have been working on all week. We turned our cameras in and got a tote bag and a photo album for our efforts!

We then went on a 2 1/2 hour bike ride on the beach, through the Forest Preserve...

and to a cemetery before back to the condo. We rode about 8 1/2 miles...a great way to exercise.

We snacked for lunch, rested and met some local friends for supper at Captain Woody's and had more delicious seafood.

This morning we worked on a scavenger hunt at Harbour Town.

This afternoon, we went to the outlet mall and a couple of stores in the Mall at Shelter Cove since it was raining and we couldn't ride bikes.

We had supper tonight at The Sea Shack again.

The food was again wonderful!

We finished the jigsaw puzzle and were pleased with how it turned out. I feel certain that we would make it again.

Mike and I played golf today and had a good time.

A unique resturant but it has...
Delicious food...

Today was a fairly slow day and that was just fine!!

Mike and I went to a golf clinic today and hopefully learned something about swing fundamentals.

Then we all went for a bike ride.
We rode on the beach and will certainly do that again.

For supper we went to Crazy Crab and had a delicious meal.

Back to the condo for football, computers, working on the jigsaw puzzle and enjoying the fire in the fireplace.

This morning we attended First Presbyterian Church and had a wonderful service with singing, a good message and communion.

Then we had lunch at Skillets.

After stopping at the grocery store, we came back to the condo and then went for an hour and half bike ride. This is always such a fun activity to do in Sea Pines.

The rest of the day and evening was spent watching football, working on the puzzle, and snacking for supper.

Happy 2011 to all!!

We are at Hilton Head Island so the new year's meal was a little make-do, but we still had ham, peas and cornbread. The peas we grew and put up and they are actually purplehull peas...not black-eyed peas. We brought the ham from home and got the muffins at the grocery store yesterday when we drove in.

It was a mainly jammie, watched the Rose Bowl Parade, worked on a jig-saw puzzle, watched football, ate, slept, etc.
