My New Best Friend



Dear Readers,

I’m back!   Over a week since I’ve written.  Vacation!  I had intentions of writing….really I did.    No distractions, no cleaning, no garden to tend, no WORKING at the hospital for a whole week.  Lots of time for peace and quiet to write a few words on “the blog”.  NOT.

Thuyla garden


The birds were so noisy…twitter-twitter-tweet-tweet-TWEET!   Ocean waves endless making my mind wander.  Wind blowing through my hair whipping it into a huge nest.  Endless carriage roads to ride my bike over and over and over.   Trail upon trail to hike up and down.  Flower gardens with too many Thuja trees to count.   Seven, yes 7 days of sunshine and temperatures in the 70’s.  Come on…..couldn’t mother nature spare one day and give us rain!   I didn’t want to waste any time in case mother nature decided in her fickle way to take it all away.  I had to muster through.  600 mg Ibuprofen every morning. My new best friend.  I frolicked through the roads, trails, gardens and little round rocks on Hunter’s Beach.



Food:  lobster salad/rolls/whole, popovers at Jordan Pond, fish-tacos, crab cakes, scallop shrimp crab fritters for GOD’s sake!  All washed down with mojitos, margaritas and cosmos.  GLOW!  Ice cream….oh yeah the ice cream….let’s not talk about that.  What kind of torture it that!  Now I’m going to have to eat salad, low carbs, kale and nothing stronger than water for the rest of my life.

It was worth it!  Life is good.


TIDBIT   During Florence’s time lthumbnail-red-cartoon-lobster (1)obster was an inexpensive food usually left for servants, slaves and prisoners. A life of crime may have HAD one advantage!
