First Time: Learn to Sew – Making a Pillow

November 3, 2018 |

I have absolutely no experience with a sewing machine. Don’t own a machine. Never been inside a fabric store. This creative, crafty subject matter is absolutely foreign to me. I’ve been searching for sewing classes but all have skipped to projects that assume you are already familiar with a sewing machine, so when local Jo-Ann store scheduled a Beginner Basic Learn to Sew class, I was in!

November 1, 2018 |

Cooler weather has begun in Central Florida (high 70°Fs – 80°Fs), so outdoor exploration is easier to do. We dusted off our Brompton folding bikes. In search for a trail that our thin bike tires can easily maneuver, we found a trail surfaced in asphalt – Flatwoods Wilderness Park: a paved loop that provides a wooded environment with abundant wildlife (such as armadillo, turtles, hawks, and deer to name a few)… with an extension which connects Bruce B. Downs Boulevard for a few extra miles to add the ride. Read More

Royal Caribbean – Allure of the Seas: 7 Night Caribbean Cruise (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

September 23, 2018 | 1

We received ~$600 credit in order to reserve this cruise accumulated from a Casino Bonus offer and partial refund from our noisy stateroom aboard the Serenade of the Seas in April. How couldn’t we take the opportunity for cruise travel before these credits expired?! Wouldn’t you SetSail? We were able to reserve Stateroom Cabin: 104, Deck: 9 which is my favorite ocean view room! Get familiar with Allure of the Seas with our photo tour. Read More

Video: Hoops Highlight (Plant City, FL)

September 11, 2018 |

From taking Ice Skating Lessons at the Ice Sports Forum in order to eventually take their Learn Hockey class, we enjoy a game of H-O-R-S-E and/or “Around the World” to keep us active. Luckily, we have the Mike E Sansone Community Park nearby. Read More

Video: Fishing with Family (Leesburg, FL)

Weather looming, a nice breeze and the sounds of thunder in the distance but that didn’t stop us from continuing to fish. Bill’s nephew Andy is quite the fisherman so he gave us some tips and had himself the right lures for the type of fish found here. Read More
