“May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full Moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.”
I am so fortunate. I have the ability to get away for a week with Jay’s sisters. We all get along and many years ago one of them got a house in Florida and made it a point to start this “sisters trip” and they all insisted that I come too even though I am the in-law. They are pretty special. We’ve done it every year since. Just the girls. We get reacquainted and catch up and after a week of kayaking, lazing in the sun and eating lots of fresh seafood, we go home refreshed. This was a hard year. We are all going through our own challenges, but one thing is constant: we are there for each other, to hold each other up and support each other. It’s really special.
I would love to do something similar with my siblings. We haven’t been together as a family since our parents passed away 20+ years ago and have really fallen out of touch. We are all so different and don’t have anywhere communal and neutral to meet. Plus there’s Covid and health concerns. I might have to work on this.
Here’s a video of the beautiful beach. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins several times and I didn’t get any great pictures. I hope this video relaxes you.
It was so refreshing. There is definitely something about the salt air.
I took my hoops down and left them there. They’ll be ready for next time! Dawn, I’ll need a few more hand hoops. What colors do you have?
I came back refreshed and full of ideas. I got my socks all washed yesterday and they are drying. As soon as Jay fixes our printer I can print labels for them and get them listed on my Etsy shop (which is linked to this site).
I hope this winter is over soon for all of us and that the growing season will start. I love to see the bright lime green of new shoots and leaves. How can there not be a God when every season is so full of wonder?
Here’s what I made us for breakfast today. No crust frittata with Canadian bacon, spinach, onions and garlic. Pretty easy and lasts a few days. Cook once, eat multiple times is my motto, as is:
Remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of a full grown llama (which is bigger than an alpaca) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
It must be getting warmer-the fog is rolling in.
