It’s Sunday Morning. I returned in the very early morning hours this past Friday from 10 glorious days in St Lucia. It was sun, and fun, food, laughter, tears (of course), and friends. It took me from running in 26 below weather on January 1st in the Polar dash, to basking in Sunshine and rocking the sunglasses on January 16th:
I read…. oh I read. I read Interview With The Vampire and Still Me. Both books I have talked about recently here. I normally love to show where I read a book, but alas… due to a brain fart by me, I sat my phone in the sand of St Lucia to pose for a picture my friend was taking and the water came up and saltwater soaked it. Yes… day 5 of the 10 in St Lucia… I was phone-less… which meant I was camera-less as well. *insert sigh here*
Turns out…. one can live without their phone. Who knew? I was still able to read (HUZZAH!) and bask in the sun (HUZZAH!) and zip line and dune buggy ride and be on a boat and feel sand between my toes. I was able to eat great food, swim, and play games with the entertainment staff. Thanks to my friend Wendy, I do have pictures she sent me from her phone.
It is of course, good to be home. While Minnesota is not exactly sunny these days, and I have no desire to feel snow between my toes… it is home. It is comfort, and dogs, cozy blankets, and my library of books at my finger tips. It is also – trying to create a schedule for myself that is not overwhelming, but exciting – it is new opportunities that astound me as I dreamed it, I hoped it, I prayed it – and now it is coming true larger than I could have imagined, faster than anticipated after a long wait… and now yeah….
but that is a story for another day.
Fellow readers, what are you reading? Where are you reading? And what is happening these final days of January 2018?
