What have I been up to?

Well the past two weeks have been filled with all sorts of adventures in scuba diving. The Advanced Open Water certification class was interesting of itself, plus add to that two consecutive weekends of dives.
On our first weekend we traveled down to Vortex Springs in Ponce de Leon, Florida to dive the springs. There’s nothing more exciting than feeling 68F water rolling down your back inside your wet suit. Friday night we did our first night dive. We saw lots of fresh water eels and plenty of large koi. Saturday and Sunday we finished up all our other required dives, plus one dive just for fun.
This past weekend we headed down to Panama City Beach for our required ocean dives. The first one was our deep dive (100ft) to the Accokeek (a Navy tug) and the second was another night dive to the Black Bart (185-foot oil field supply ship) sitting at 75 feet. I will say I completed both dives, but after the first I found myself fighting a case of sea sickness. I toughed it out and went ahead with the last dive.
I would say I have lots of pictures to share, but our camera didn’t quite make it this time. It sprang a leak sometime during the dives and it looks like the film may have got wet. It’s at the developer right now…we’ll see what comes out.
Ok.. time to do a little more work… more later.

It's finally done…

Well the Florida room is finally finished. Ok, the main part is done, now all that is left to do is paint the rest of the house, and furnish the actual room.

So much time waiting and now it’s finally finished. Right now I feel like I could just sit home and order stuff online to fill it up, but I think I’ll wait until the check clears and my wallet stops screaming. We’re also going to put in a path from the door over to the sidewalk, so that we don’t create a bigger path through the yard. The dogs have already created a few holes close by, so maybe once the path is there they will quit digging.

Hmmm… so much to think about. Rugs, furniture, tv or no tv….hmmm…where are those catalogs!

Todays the day…

After being put off for more than two weeks due to rain by the contractor the day is finally here. Would you believe its actually raining again too? Well the last time they put us off because of rain it didn’t rain a drop the whole week! Go figure. I guess sooner or later we’ll finally have our new addition…aka Florida sunroom.

Hmm… I better close the blinds or the dogs will bark their heads off today. Well I’m sure they will bark considering how they acted when the roof got replaced. Have you ever wondered just what they are thinking??? At least we do know if there is a strange noise they will surely let us know! 🙂

More to come…
