At three thirty a.m. yesterday I was busy making sure my phone battery was totally charged so I wouldn't miss the call that moving the houseboat was a go. Was it blowing too much, was it going to rain? Check the radar (47th time)! When the call came I was outside and didn't hear it. Because the Universe will never give up trying to teach me to chill out. Ever. Good luck with that, gods and goddesses.
|My new galley curtain.|
I may not be all plumbed in yet but I've got awesome curtains!
|Some of my new neighbors|
|My welcome to the 'hood.|
A pair of mating hawks, screaming their love song
Now I'm all settled in, as much as one settles on a constantly pivoting object. I've made the walk to town and learned that I am not particularly enamored with it, especially when I brilliantly chose to go dragging a full old lady cart in the middle of the day without a hat. That needs a reset button.
But the walk in and back is pretty beautiful!
|A resting place well worth stopping for|
|Cool house art|
Sunrise hits at a different angle out on the mooring. If I open the doors to get a breeze, I'm also opening the doors to intense, blinding morning sunshine. Oh! And then the boat shifts and it doesn't matter again. After not being on the hook for about...a long time, reminders are everywhere of things I've forgotten. And almost all of them are good.

My yearly friend came in last week to stay at Zoni. We must be getting older; I made it home every evening I visited.
|About the clearest day they had while here.|
Always beautiful, even in the rain.
Life is good.
Today, my daughter Sarah turns 40 years old. That seems crazy, to both of us. But there it is, the second in my trio to achieve her fourth decade on the planet.I want to be with her on this day and can only send heart waves and prezzies. When ARE they getting that damn transporter finished??
|I would make you this...this whatever it is!|
And a carrot cake too!
