Husband remains out of the hospital for over 365 days!!!!

Yes it's been over a year that Jordi has been in the hospital. That is not a small thank-you, it's HUGE!!!!

2013!!!!! And no posts

Just because the housing market is "better" doesn't mean the blog is obsolete.  Of course there will always be posts for the small things in life that make us go 'yay' or 'nay'!  I suppose I am thankful that our eldest child finished her undergraduate work.

I am not sure there is anything that tastes as wonderful as Osso Bucco, the day after!  We went to an Italian restaurant, yesterday, to celebrate Sophie's being in town, and I ordered OB, in honor of Herb (who would have turned 90 on Saturday, October 13th).  It was really good.  But not as good as it is today!

Fresh baked bread

Over the weekend I decided I was so inspired by the fabulous food and baked goods (thank you Betsy!) that I would bake bread.  The first batch, not so good, but the second and third....delicious! I had forgotten what a joy it is to bake bread, from start to finish; the mixing of ingredients, the kneading of the bread, and the SMELL, or that smell, enough to bring anyone in from the street.  But there is nothing to compare to the actual taste of fresh baked bread (add a little cheese and wine) and what more does one need to live on?!

I'm in there fumbling and bumbling around.  But oh do I have a great time.  Took the plunge and after 14 years of living in Miami I joined the gym at the University of Miami.  They offer free classes; one in Zumba dancing,which I'd never done before, and I'm so happy when I'm hopping around.  It's a lot of fun and maybe it's my age, but I don't care much, that everyone, or most everyone around me is about 20-30 years younger.  I guess one reaches a point when it's all about getting out there and realizing that nobody really cares what you look like.  They're all focused on what they look like.  And so I hop and bump and try and grind and sweat, a lot, and have a wonderful time.
