A drawback of seeking out warmer weather: allergies. When I left Indiana, frosts had pretty much eliminated that problem. Here, not so much. I have a lot of sinus pressure and was glad Russell wanted to spend the day in. It must be a little amusing watching me move around. The room tends to do this spinning thing. I probably look a little drunk. Le sigh.
The bright side: I’ve been reading a lot. I liked Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. It’s way better than the Twilight series. I also read Maureen Johnson’s first two books, The Keys to the Golden Firebird and The Bermudez Triangle. I love Johnson’s snark. Her characters are very real and well developed. I have more of her books with me and will probably keep reading when I have some down time.
I ventured out on my own Monday morning and played with the camera with mixed success. I won’t post them to Flickr until I get back but here is a shot from the Seville Quarter in downtown Pensacola. I also visited Saint Michael’s Cemetery. The cemetery wasn’t as old as I’d hoped it be. I had a relaxing stroll, if nothing else. Later Monday night, we saw Quantum of Solace, which Russ and I both really liked.
I think the congestion just clogged my brain. I’m out.
Safe travels to all who are journeying out for Turkey Day!
