ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 17

Well, today was in direct contrast to yesterday. Sun, little breeze, blue skies,no clouds,and... 49 degrees. Who would think that 49 felt like the fourth of July and in fact, since we had a cold summer, that may actually have been the temperature on the Fourth of July. I sat outside to have my lunch and I opened the one door that I have , used the screen door and just let the air flow in. I didn’t  even have my jacket on and Dixie just had on a light weight vest. Won’t last, but I was in the moment with today. I want to announce that I am coming home for just a few days. I will not see anyone except my dermatologist and my accountant. I will still be doing the same thing that I do here. Mask, social distancing. Since it has only been 10 days since I had my second vaccination, I am borderline in the immune  realm . So ,please know that I would like to be more social, but I won’t. When I came here in June, I never dreamt that I would be here so long and I didn’t bring important tax papers and stuff like that. My dermatologist just happened to be on my calendar for my annual full body . So that falls right into my visit. I am really excited to be going home. I have it planned out so that I am as safe as possible and so will be anybody that I come in contact with. I am flying at night , when I expect there will be fewer people on the plane. The middle seat will be vacant. I will wear my N 95 mask from point A to Point B. I am bringing my own food, which I will eat anywhere in the terminal that has no one around me. Once I get on the plane, I will disinfect everything around me and go to sleep. With my mask on.When I get to Tampa, I am renting a car,that I have been assured has been sanitized. First stop, The National Cemetery to visit Bob’s grave and leave a stone from Port Townsend. Then my first appointment. The next day, my second appointment. Third day ,pack what I came for , plus anything that I have been missing. Next day..fly back to PT. I think that I have every contingency covered.If I don’t, I’ll handle it when it comes.

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?
