Like a person wanting a healthy diet, it's easier to stick to it if you aren't surrounded by junk food. So while it might be more expensive to live here on one level, it is easier on so many other levels, without being able to pop into a big box store, intent on one purchase and coming out with a full shopping cart of things added to a credit card bill. And that's a good thing, in my mind.
Yesterday morning, while I was at my little table selling bread and hot sauce (thank you, strangers, who stopped to ask what I was selling), Mama and her boy were strolling up the road. I was happy to see them, but also ready to defend my bread, when a vehicle came along that scared them back down the road. Clippity clop, clippity clop went 8 hooves, dancing down to a safer place.
This morning dawned beautifully again, the rising of the sun later and later as we draw near the Winter Solstice. Instead of a 5:30 wake up call, it was almost 7 when CWIM began pulling down my cover, head butting my cheek to let me know I was being extremely lazy in taking care of her breakfast. Morning was indeed breaking and breaking fast.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for the ballet upcoming December 10th. I went last year and it is really a nice production. Yes, ballet on Culebra! I'll try to remember to remind us all again, but it's a plan ahead sort of thing. Is your tutu back from the dry cleaners?
Have a small business Saturday, using cash! Do something serene.
