Golfing and Gators

Several of you have emailed me and asked where in the world I've been. I haven't gone anywhere or gotten stuck in my desk (Karen, that really cracked me up!); I've just been unbelievably busy lately. I've had so many things to share, but I just haven't been able to eek out enough spare time to put a post together. Hopefully I will be able to get my thoughts together soon and get some pictures posted.
 
I spent a few hours today playing golf with my handsome hubby. We don't play very often, but the course just down the road from us has been running random online booking specials lately, and we have enjoyed playing for just a fraction of what it normally costs. Steven bought me a brand new set of clubs a couple of weeks ago, and I have been hitting the ball much better than I was with my old set.
 
It was a beautiful day on the golf course. The sun was shining, and the high was around 84 degrees. Those of you who live in colder climates would have been very jealous! There are always lots of different types of birds on Florida golf courses, like this hawk.

Sometimes we spot a critter or two. Today we came across this gator sunning himself on the bank not too far from the 11th tee. Don't worry, I didn't get very close to him!
 
Steven and I had such a relaxing time together. He is a much better golfer than I am, but he is very patient with me and tries to give me pointers to help me improve. I'm thankful for my Monday golf date with my very best friend.

Haha! So glad you enjoyed it. ;)
Years ago, I used to attempt playing with my HH (handsome hubby), but gave up because I'm not very good at it. He spent more time looking for my lost balls, than playing. I enjoy riding along, though, and it is wonderful alone time to share with him. He plays more in the Fall around here, and the scenery is just gorgeous and he likes to share it with me.
I had an encounter at the beach with a gator once. It wanted my pink golf ball and was not going to let me have it. Needless to say, I let him keep it. That may have been my last time playing, come to think of it. ;)
Happy to see you back! Have a great week, Paula.

So glad you and your hubby can have time to 'play' together. My sweetheart and I were going to golf together. Then I had a bad auto accident with a back injury that kept me from taking the lessons he purchased for me. We've moved on to other things since then. The important thing is the time you spend together. Not so sure about that 'gator!
