Florida...

Oh Luceeeee!! I'm hoooOOOooome!!

Ah, it's good to be back. I arrived late last night. As we were coming in for landing, I was watching the huge anvil-shaped cloud hovering over the ocean. Sure enough, heat lightning periodically zoomed through it, like a giant lightning bug or fairies flitting through.

Waking up in near-total darkness this morning because the hurricane shutters are up, I wondered where the heck I am. Oh yeah! I'm home!! This morning was spent at the beach-blue waters and hot sun!

So, now it's time for the afternoon thundershower. You can practically set your watch to it.

Welcome home, and while you're here, please don't exceed the speed limit. Do take lots of pictures though!

Willowtree said...

Ha! You are in Miami, god's waiting room. The only place most of those people are going involves pearly gates, so their in no hurry ;)

Have fun back home.

Melissa said...

Oh yeah? Well I have done the dishes, steam cleaned a rug, and laid tile. Take that, beaches and hot sun! thbbppttt. ;)

Karmyn R said...

Beaches, hot sun? What is that?

I hope you are REALLY enjoying yourself while you rub it in to the rest of us. sniff sniff

Pamela said...

you are forgiven for being there... as long as you make good pictures

Claudia said...

CEO, I'm sorry, I can't make promises as to the speed limit.

Willow, well I wish they'd hurry up already and get out of my way!! And you're awfully optimistic about the pearly gates, aren't you??? :)

Melissa, can you visit my house too?? :P

Karmnyn, what can I say..life is good!!

Pamela, thank you.

C said...

It's been the same here in Georgia. I want to wash my car but what the heck.

Little Miss Moi said...

Dear claudia. Have a great time at home! Ahh I love afternoon thunderstorms.

Glamourpuss said...

Oooh, enjoy. You're on holiday - you can afford to slow down...

Puss

Claudia said...

C, might as well give up, those thunderstorms will get rid of a bit of grime at least!

Dear LMM, thank you!!

Glam, yes, I am enjoying a slower pace, but a constant 20MPH is really a bit much!!

Matt said...

Dude,

Virginia just raised it's speeding fines. It is now possible to get a $3,000 speeding ticket.

I'm NOT kidding. But just for VA-registered motorists.

Claudia said...

Matt, another good reason to get out of dodge! that really bites.

Odat said...

There's nothing that feels quite like your own bed, with your own pillow.

And your hurricane shutters.

Here in Florida, the speed limit should be 20 miles per hour more than it usually is -- that way the old people would go a decent speed. I got behind a "28 in a 45"er yesterday. Argh!

Dan said...

Welcome back Claudia! We're heading to Oregon next week for 10 days. Should be fun.

(Come and see my HNT. Blush.)

Claudia said...

Odat, thank you! I'm glad you liked them.

Tigger, let me tell ya, I could sleep for days there. I close the door and it's pitch dark!! I told my mom to leave the door open for me so I can see when there is light.

Legal, I am so surprised that there aren't more cases of road rage. I seriously want to ram some people, like the moron yesterday going 10MPH and then braked at every street! ARGH!

Dan, I'm not quite back to CA yet, but I very much like your HNT! (wink wink)

Robin said...

what's dan's hnt? guess i should look if i'm curious.

your adrenaline sounded like it was flowing......!

Claudia said...

Robin, definite adrenaline and whatever other chemical the body pours out!!
