Linda's First Outing, A Photo and Christmas Decorations?

DeBary, FL.

6o deg. clear, N. wind @ 3 mph.
Forecast = Partly cloudy. High of 81F. Winds from the NNE at 5 to 10 mph

Things have slowed down around here. Friday evening, Linda decided that she wanted to go out to eat someplace, so CLT (Cute Little Truck), took her and Jim over to Gram's Kitchen in Orange City. That was the first time that Linda had been out of the house since she came home from her surgery. Jim says that she did really well, and they both enjoyed a nice meal. :-)

Linda was quite tired by the time they returned though, so she sat in her chair and watched TV for the rest of the evening.

Oh, speaking of Linda's chair,  ,  ,  ,  , Jim took a photo of the new living room arrangement, so I thought I'd post it today. As you can see, the couch has been moved over to the wall on the right and Jim and Lind's chairs have been moved in front of the windows. The love seat that matches the couch has now been moved into the craft room and the blue chair that was in there has been placed where Linda's chair used to be.

By doing this, they lost one seating space, but now their chairs are right across the room from the TV and they both can more comfortably watch it.

The mailman brought a sales flier from ACE Hardware the other day and they had some Christmas decorations and lights at a good price, so Jim took CLT and headed over there and bought a bunch of stuff. You see, for the last 13 years or so, Jim and Linda have been using a little 2 foot tall tree in whatever Motorhome we had at the time. Well,  ,  ,  ,  ,  can you imagine how that 2' tree would look here in the house? They also have only enough lights and decorations decorate the small tree, so Jim bought more lights and a few decorations for the house.

They'll still need to get a larger tree and more decorations for the tree, but more of that kind of thing should be going on sale in the next couple weeks or so.

No big plans for today, except the "Da Bears" game is supposed to be on TV this afternoon and I'm sure Jim and Linda will watch it. They still root for "Da Bears" even though it's been a long time since we've lived in Illinois. ;-)

A Point to Ponder : Since a running back runs forward, why is he called a running back?


Oh, can you find me in the above photo? Boy was I scared!!! :-O
