When They're Ready They Don't Mess Around

DeBary, FL'

73 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain. High of 97F. Winds from the WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%.

When Jim and Linda decide to go shopping for things for the house, they don't mess around!! ;-)

They took CLT and left here around 11:00 yesterday morning and headed over to the Target store in Orange City, which is just a few miles from here.

But wait!!! Let me back up a few hours!!! :-)

Before Linda even got up, Jim was on the computer researching TVs and microwaves, trying to find the best units for the money and also reading the many reviews that they had. He then went to the sale adds for this week and researched where the products that he was looking for were on sale as well as available in the stores. So, by the time Linda woke up, he had determined that Target had the items he thought they should  look at.

Well, the research paid off and after about an hour and a half or so, they came back with CLT's pickup bed full of items, like a TV, a microwave, a kitchen clock, a few small waste baskets, a milk crate type basket to put under the kitchen counter to put small items in and even some groceries that they picked up at the Winn Dixie Grocery store that they stopped at on the way back here!!  ;-)

After getting everything in the house and the groceries put away, Jim got the microwave set up on the kitchen counter and then tackled the TV. Getting the TV out of the box was the hardest part and soon he had it set up on the cabinet in the living room.

Now, there is no antenna or cable hookup yet, but they were able to watch a DVD and a VHS tape on the DVD/VHS recorder/player that they removed from Emrys before they traded him off for Bobbie T. ;-)

Today, I think Linda is planning on doing laundry. And, they still need to do a lot of reorganizing because it seems like everything they need, they have to hunt for. Just yesterday, when Jim was looking for batteries for the remote controls, he looked and looked before he finally found the box that they were in. And, it's been like that with many things. :-(

Jim and Linda are still struggling to cope with the high humidity and high temperatures down here in Florida. Everyone says that they'll get somewhat used to it as time goes by, but that doesn't really help right now when they need to get some things done.

Oh, I almost forgot!!! Last night for dinner, Linda heated up some leftovers in her brand new microwave oven!! ;-)  She says that it works great!!!!

Did you know that due to Florida's proximity to the equator, the state receives more than a hundred times the UV exposure that Maine does?
