Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

Not Florida

with 2 comments

If there was any doubt whether we were still in Florida, or not, one look out the window told the tale yesterday morning. Cyndie provided this shot she captured on one of our trails. She trekked through the new snow on her new knee, while giving Delilah some exercise. I am very impressed with her brave efforts toward resuming activity at a time of year when the footing is particularly sketchy.

We are sad to have them gone —they have become family— but it was time for them to take another step in their relocation plan. We have become empty nesters again.

Our feelings are understandably mixed about their leaving, greatly missing their companionship and support, while also appreciating the luxury of returning to being less discreet about closing doors or wearing clothes. However, we know there will be future visits, as George still has some clients in the area on his farrier calendar.

Our place will always be available to them as a home away from home.
