Time to catch up again, yesterday wasn’t a real exciting day so I didn’t bother to do my blog. It was a hot, humid day and the first thing on the agenda was laundry, Barb had said there was a nice laundromat down on Fort Morgan Road so that was where we went to get that job out of the way. Once we finished with the laundry we went to Wally World to do some shopping and we ran into Ginny, Gil, Barb & Jack there, they had planned on a walk on the beach in the morning but they said it was too windy so they had gone out for lunch and stopped for some shopping.

When we got home we unloaded the laundry and groceries then John drove up to Foley to try and find a bracket for the slide on the bathroom drawer which had broken, having no luck at either Lowe’s or Home Depot he came back and managed to make do with the broken one until we can find a replacement. By the time he finished that it was time to start dinner – where oh where do the days go!!!

Today John & I decided to drive up to Fairhope which is a beautiful little town on Mobile Bay. We took all the back roads to get there and once we started driving up the bay boy did we see some gorgeous homes. Fairhope is a quaint little town with lots of neat stores but we have done the stores before so didn’t bother doing any today as it was very busy there.

From there we drove up to Spanish Fort as Kelly had asked me to get her some stuff at a Bath & Body Works if we were near one and at Fairhope we were only about 12 miles from Spanish Fort, where there was one, so figured we had nothing better to do. What a huge shopping mall there, one could have a really great time if they were really into shopping!!

We again took the back roads home and found a brand new Wally World out in the middle of nowhere so stopped and picked up a couple of things, then on home.

Last night we got caught up on phone calls – talked to M & M, my sister and my friend Janet – it’s always nice to get caught up. I also talked to my brother in Australia for a bit on Skype but again the internet signal wasn’t great so I am looking forward to trying it when we get home.

As always, the last two days have been great gifts here in the sunny south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
