ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct. 21

Beautiful day. Makes one happy to be in south west Florida when a day like this . Makes no difference what day of the week such a beautiful day comes around, you should just take advantage of it. Taking  the whole day to only do what makes you happy is special.  I am practical enough to know that you have to be at a certain place in your life to have this opportunity. When there are kids to contend with, your focus is different. Way back when we had kids around, a day like today would be spent doing mom and Dad things. If all of the stars were in the right place, we could do something as a family. Those were great days and memories. Today, to celebrate my special day of only doing what makes me happy, I knew that I only had me to please. I biked  almost 17 miles on my bright yellow bike. Then I came home and took a nap. I checked when sunset was and went to the beach to watch it. It was glorious, until a low dark cloud blotted  it out. But I didn't  despair, because the sun was right behind the cloud and it looked as if the cloud was on fire. Spectacular. I'm going to take another special day again, soon. It makes my whole me feel really good.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
