I was just looking back at posts from a year ago, and I discovered that we left on February 2 for Arizona last year.  We plan to leave on February 2 for Florida this year.  I didn't realize that we have picked the same departure date.  Maybe we should make that a yearly thing.....leave Minnesota on February 2 every year!

I am beginning to make my lists and starting to get things in piles, ready to pack for our trip.  We will be staying in temporary quarters on the AFB, and we will have a kitchen with dishes, silverware, pots and pans.  However, I don't think they will have my cast iron skillets, which I need.  They won't have my big red pot, which I need.  And they won't have my Wusthof knives, which I need.  Therefore, I will pack them.  But this time there is no need to pack bedding and towels as they are provided.

So it's really only a matter of packing my sandals for beach walking, my capris for beach walking, and my short sleeved T shirts for beach walking.  Beyond that, I need my camera to take pictures of my beach walking, and my computer to distribute pictures of my beach walking. 

At first we wondered if we should waste the money to leave town this year as the winter has been so mild.  But this last week the temps fell below zero, and we've had some blustery winds with a bit of snow.  Today was freezing drizzle and falling temps, so it will probably get cold and slippery.  Yup, time to waste some money and head south for a couple of weeks.

The invitation is still open for you all to come along.  Just let me know when and where to pick you up!
