Trip narration is cool.

We bought a CD which goes by mile marker from Miami to Key West, and narrates the trip down route 1, giving history, music, fun facts, and things to do and see along the way. It has really enhanced the drive.

Nobody dug up the mint plant last night.

Oh the carnage! Especially after I put fertilizer in the pots. But two nights have gone by and the plants are undisturbed.

This is one of the previous mornings, before I put the mint into the big yellow pot, which they really seem to like!

Very informative meeting today.

We’re looking at switching our merchant services, to save money. A local guy met with us about his services, and he explained quite a lot about how it works and how we ended up paying more than what was promised when we signed up with our bank. So, we’re going to switch and save $30-$50 per month. More money in our pockets! ­čÖé

We have so many things to take for granted.

I’ve been watching a lot of Naked and Afraid lately, and it really makes be grateful for all of the comforts we have. I’m so lucky to have been born in the US and to have great parents that raised me well and comfortably.

I don’t have to worry about a scratch making me seriously ill.

One of the things I talked with the homeless people about, was getting cut. They are all very afraid of cuts because when you sleep on the ground, it’s much more likely to get a bad infection. I *did* cut myself yesterday, on some glass, but I had supplies in the car to clean, disinfect, and bandage it up.

I’m not homeless.

I went to go clean up more trash today and talked with some of the homeless people living nearby. I wish I could help them.

Scratch-offs paid off.

For the first time, it was a big prize for the lottery tickets we bought someone for a birthday gift. Terra won $80! Pretty nice present. She just turned 18, along with her twin brother, Tyler.

They found me.

I was supposed to meet a group for the Great American Cleanup on Saturday. The meeting place got changed and I didn’t get any┬ámessage, so when I showed up, nobody was there. So I just started picking up trash! I had a couple of bags sitting by the car, and one of the guys that was involved stopped with his truck, picked up the trash I had collected, and told me where everybody was meeting. Yay!!
