Hello again from Florida. Gator country. No I haven't seen any yet, but I bet I do sooner rather than later. Can't wait to see them out in the wild. Someone told me the other day not to go swimming in any streams or ponds etc. because of the alligators and the Water Moccasins, otherwise known as Cotton Mouth snakes. OK you do not have to tell me twice! Water Moccasins are not comfy shoes you wear in the water, they are highly venomous snakes. Check out the link if you feel your curiosity getting the better of you ;) Water Moccasins link - careful they don't BITE YA!
It's still very warm here. I went for a walk last night at 5pm and it was cooling down a little by then. I love watching all of the little tiny lizards scooting around over the footpaths and in the gardens.
Just got the fright of my life. Went to get a receipt for my accommodation and on it were 3 calls to NZ. One to my family which wasn't answered, and 2 to my Dad, one which wasn't answered and one where I spoke with him for about 10 minutes. The unanswered calls cost over $17, each! But wait, there's more! The 10 minute call cost $77!! So, unlike ET, I won't be phoning home any time soon!
I've discovered "Michaels" craft store...heaven on a stick for me :) I gathered a few scrapbooking supplies so I can start the scrapbook of my Florida trip. Well, more than just the Florida trip, my whole Pompe journey really. Florida is but one part of that. I'm also going to try to resurrect my drawing skills. Resurrect might be the wrong word, they were never that great to start with, shall I say improve my drawing skills :) I will have plenty of time here to try it anyway. I brought my pencils with me all the way from NZ. Sat down the other day to sharpen them so I could draw, but did I bring a pencil sharpener...noooo. I won't be phoning home for one either!
