Family, Taco The Cat, Gulf Shores New Boardwalks, Books, & The Flu

                                                 January/February 2018

Our oldest daughter Alisha got her Real Estate license the first of September. Now we have two Real Estate Agents in the family. This is the first home that she got listed with her sign in the yard.
It's been a rather rainy and chilly winter this year with a few good beach walking days. On this day we had Agent Alisha and Nana Girl 2, Madalena.
and Nana Boy1, Noah.
At one of the houses Agent Alisha showed, there was a cat following her around meowing continuously. A neighbor came over during the showing to talk to her. This gave Alisha the opportunity to ask about the cat. She was told the cat was left behind two months ago. She went home and told her husband about it, and because the temperatures were going to hit freezing that night, they decided to go back and get the cat. Meet the newest addition to the family, Taco. This family already has 2 rescue dogs and a rescue cat.

Maddy and Taco, becoming best friends. Who moves and leaves their pet behind? At least take your pet to a rescue center. Alisha took Taco to the vet the next day and got her updated with shots. Taco was covered in gashes which indicated having to fight for her life with other cats or other animals for the last 2 months.
Our oldest granddaughter turned 21 December 24th. We didn't get to spend time with her on her birthday as she was in St Paul, MN with her dad.
After Christmas, she came home with her boyfriend John, and Jamie and Alisha took everyone out for her 21st Birthday to the Rock N' Roll Sushi. Other people at the table were Hayleah's friend since grade school, Taylor and her boyfriend. Tiffany and Blake were in St Paul, Minnesota for a wedding during Hayleah's 21st Birthday celebration.
Alisha making a weird face with her 21 year old daughter. I am very picky about posting picture of me unless they are good. Alisha doesn't mind posting funny pictures, (she must be more secure than me). I asked her for pictures of this night for my blog, and she gave them to me, so I figured she was cool with them.
After dinner in Jamie & Alisha's jacuzzi.

Because Alisha lives about an hour away from Gulf Shores, it was a bunk party weekend.

Alisha catches me washing my face before bedtime. No mater how many glasses of wine, it has been a ritual of mine since a teen! Joe didn't attend our party this night because he didn't want to spend money at a restaurant. I told him the next day, you snooze you lose, Jamie and Alisha bought!
A picture of Joe in our condo that I found on my phone. The photographer: Lennox our 3rd grandchild.
Joe and I have not got the exercise this winter as we did last year. On a semi warm day, we  decided to try out the new Gulf State Park boardwalks just put in this summer.
This entrance starts on  the beach side state park parking lot next to the new Gulf Shores State Park Hotel.
Once across the main beach highway, the boardwalk crosses over many waterways and marshes.
As we got farther into the marshes, you could hear all sorts of birds singing.
A few days later, we drove further down the beach highway, and jumped onto another new section of the connecting boardwalk.
This new boardwalk is just a small section of an already 25 miles of hiking and biking trails in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach AL.
This bench area is a great place to sit and watch the real snow birds flitting around during migration.
One of the marsh land areas on the boardwalk.
I do love all these trail in this area. I just wish it had been a bit warmer weather this year to use them more. Maybe next year.
With the colder weather, I have been doing my research. The first 3 books I had already read, but I like to bring them for references. Two of the last 3, I have read some of them and one I will read later when we get back home. I have been trying to uncover my many health problems for 10 years. I tried traditional doctors, and their legal drugs didn't do a thing for me. I always liked science, so I have become my own self health advocate. What I am finding is the unraveling of health issued that started in my 20's. Healing health problems is like peeling an onion, one layer at a time.
Unfortunately the last 3 weeks Joe has been dealing with a respiratory flu, and I for the last 2 weeks. We both are almost completely well. Praise the Lord. The first 3 nights I coughed my head off, and finally gave in and went to the health food store and got this product. It is best to start the elderberry drops before flu season starts (taking 25 drops once a day), because I was already sick, I took 25 drops 3 times a day as instructed. Joe took regular drug store cold medicine.
Another product I took was this Boericke & Tafel Cough & Bronchial Syrup. This stuff completely ended the nighttime coughing and hacking. I highly recommend this stuff.
I had registered Lennox for swim class, but because Joe and I were sick for the first class, Tiffany and Blake had to take Lennox. My other two grand kids live to far for me to get them picked up as well as Lennox and to class in time.
Just an adorable picture of our oldest granddaughter's cat, Nugget, that she text to our family group text. Hayleah lives in Birmingham while attending college. Always a good way to end a blog with something that gives you warn and fuzzies! The world has way to little warm and fuzzies these day. (You know, all the hate promotion in the news these days).
