On the Move Again

We spent three nights across the street from our Wisconsin friends and then it was time to move to our new digs....complete with pickleball courts.  This is officially our shortest move at under 17 miles.

It's a great park and I've been making new friends on the court, but this Florida sun and humidity really sap my strength and I don't feel I'm playing to my full potential.

We went out to lunch with the Charbonneau's and decided to visit O'Keefe's to celebrate St Paddy's Day a little early. We don't like crowds and figured it would be swamped on the actual day.

I got to indulge in Irish potato soup and Left Brain went for the corned beef and cabbage.

On Wednesday we'll have them over to our place for lunch and I'm going to try the Reuben casserole recipe I found on Facebook. 

This afternoon we went to see "Lady in the Van" at the Rialto 8 theater in The Villages.  It's odd to be here and think that my friend Marti might be living here in the near future.  This place has everything you could ever want.

But, the laundry is approaching the critical stage so I think that's in my future for tomorrow.

Long Live the Queen


  1. Well, I will be making corned beef and cabbage this year. For the past three years, Bill was on the road. This was always a tradition here.

  2. I think about The Villages every day - haven't totally convinced RJ, though! We probably won't celebrate St Patty's Day too much since it's the beginning of March Madness. Here in Vegas it's all about the hoopla around the opening weekend. Guess I'll have to go take photos and/or shop. LOL

  3. Oh my, that corned beef and cabbage looks scrumptious!! My brother used to make it for us every year. Your new place sounds really nice. Enjoy your stay. The temperatures should go down a bit soon so you'll be able to enjoy playing pickle ball again. Have a beautiful Spring Sunday!! Hugs, Edna B.
