I am getting back at the reminiscing again and have copied all of the previous entries and will be adding them under a new menu heading of Reminiscing. I think that makes a bit more sense than adding them kind of willy-nilly as blog entries.
Once I get the separate write-ups entered I will add a couple of photos as well.
Our days are drawing closer to our next cruise. We well be leaving here on the 06 March to drive to Florida, spend a couple of days with our friends there and do some bird watching and sight seeing. Then proceed to Fort Lauderdale for a 10 night cruise to the Easter Caribbean retuning on 25 March. From there a drive home with a stop over in North Carolina to visit some newly found relatives. Back hope and hopefully this year the snow and cold will be gone.
I have started some hydroponics again and the first batch of herbs are doing quite well. A second batch has been started and coming along as well as a few in soil as well.
I am debating on starting seeds before we head south or wait until I get back. Everything you read about starting seeds for transplanting is start 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting which would be the middle of March. Beginning at the first of March would be about 10 weeks before transplant. I have done that in the past and the results vary. Will just have to wait and see how I feel the last week in the month or the first week next month.
Sadly I have become a "fair weather" runner. This winter has been brutal for running with the sidewalks covered in ice and snow and the roads not much better. To make up for that I have started a more or less regular walking routine which should help. I am planning on doing some treadmill running on the ship.
I have finally signed up for my two races of the year - the 5K in the Tamarack Race Weekend in May and the 5K Army Run in September. I did very well last year and hope to be able to do the same this year. Of course I would be happier to beat last year's times.
That should be about if for now.
