Disney was made for Christmas. We usually spend at least one, but more often two weekends enjoying the Christmas season in Disney. This year we visited Hollywood Studios and EPCOT parks twice, while visiting Magic Kingdom once, as well as other areas of the property.
Thanksgiving is here. This is our time to spend time with family, eat too much, and watch the Peanuts Thanksgiving special and the Macy’s Parade. For many of us there is something else this week – rivalry week in college football.
We have all heard and said the following phrases “What are the odds?” “What a small world!”
I remember my grandparents had a set of glasses that said “When life gives you lemons make lemonade”. As a kid I didn’t understand how profound that statement can be when you are an adult. The 10 year old me thought it was a pretty simple concept – what else would you do with lemons after all?
The Sunshine State. No snow. No chilly, long, dark winter nights. Yes, a majority of us who moved to Florida from “up North” came here in a quest for an endless summer. We did this six years ago and have never looked back. But, in search for the endless summer, we can actually forget what season we are in. The usual identifiers of seasons are absent. There are no crisp fall mornings with falling leaves.
Every year we make sure one of our fall visits to Walt Disney World is a Halloween themed weekend. For this year we stayed at Disney’s Beach Club Resort and attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom.
When there was nothing else on TV my husband and I could always trust HGTV to deliver some entertainment with a house buying or renovating show. Lately we have not been tuning in to HGTV. We have found ourselves annoyed by the behavior of the buyers.
