For me it means another housesitting gig is over, another vicarious pet will do the happy dance on her owner's return. As usual, this has been a great time for me, different views, wandering space, amenities of the first world in abundance.
But home is home and a fine place to be. My 'ship' is not temporary, it is home. It is knowing where to reach in the dark for the light switch, the comfort of tossing around a thing or three, and being pretty sure of what is in the cupboard.
This time my cupboard will have a new addition. Thanks, Abe and Sue, who sent me some Old Bay seasoning after reading my crab cakes post! My next batch will be perfect now (plus, I just like to use it as a seasoning on other foods, it smells like my childhood).
|Thanks and thanks!|
So here's a recap of the holiday so far; Three Kings Day is still to come.
|Why I keep being surprised when I hear the gobbles, I can't explain.|
|This view is almost a pure perfect winter day.|
|The hibiscus blooming here have been a daily pleasure|
|I so hope this pig can be contained.|
|The orchids are doing well|
|Islands in the sky|
|Lots of glorious rainbows!|
|This color is much more of a bronzy gold in reality.|
Very different, very beautiful
|Because it's fun to say frangipani|
|Oh! The Christmas parade!|
|Gotta get a Bloody Mary from Fede next. He makes the best!|
|I'm not sure what was more crooked, the view or me|
|A trip back to the boat mid-way through.|
So much wind! So much beauty.
|Leftover NYE debris. |
The grapes we (okay, me, since I was hostess)
forgot to eat at midnight. Can't imagine why.
|Egrets at the airport|
|Yet another stunning dawn|
|And today's dawn. Last one from this view for now.|
I hope you were awake early to see the sky today. I saw a number of photos from around the country where it was a really scrumptious dawn and sunrise. Of course, it's not 10 degrees here, so going out to see it is a lot easier. Indeed.
No matter how your seasons and reasons change, keep an eye on the beauty.
Have a weatherproof Wednesday. Do something winsome.
