OMG. What a perfect day. I keep using that word, lol. It’s going to lose it’s meaning, but not tonight.
I began today by going to sunrise at the town dock with my brother-in-law. It was really cold for FL, around 50, with the wind blowing steady about 25 mph or so. We were freezing! But, we got to see the sun come up into a completely cloudless sky, it was beautiful.
I asked my sisters if they wanted to join me in a meditation, and my younger sister did. It was really nice doing it with her. I’ve been pretty lax in my practice this week, since she’s been here. My older sis then showed us some of the yoga she does daily. It was a nice way to start the day.
We went down to Sarasota, about 15 minutes from here, to St. Armand’s Circle. It’s a very high-rent shopping district. Great shops, not all real expensive but some are. We shopped, we had pizza at an outdoor Italian restaurant and shared a bottle of wine. There was a great spice shop, selling all kinds of blends they make themselves, as well as flavor-infused salts (I bought truffle sea salt, it smelled so good!) and they also had a wall of hand-made teas, some caffeinated and some not. Amazing flavors. The day warmed up into the high 70’s and the wind stopped. It was amazing.
When we got home, we all kind of hung out for an hour reading, resting (because the day was so strenuous, lol). Then went in the pool and tried to work the pizza off so we could have a fabulous dinner. And watched the movie The Jungle Book. It’s such a good movie, I was surprised how much I liked it!
To top it off, while we were watching the movie, I got a text from L. He’s going to send me a copy of the ad they put in the paper for the condo they just bought and did all this work to, he wants my opinion of it. He’s coming home Sunday. I don’t know if I’m going home Sunday or Monday morning. I’m very excited to see him again.
And then the eclipse…and the full moon….in a perfectly cloudless starry sky. Amazing.
But seriously, it was just an amazing day. We were so happy all day, so enjoying each other’s company. Gorgeous weather, great food. Feeling so blessed.
I still can’t believe my life turned out this way.
Love and light…..
This is so lovely! Deb, the reason your life has turned out this way is because you went through all the heartache and pain and now deserve every single second of happiness that now comes your way.
And the even better thing is that this is just the beginning! ❤ ❤ ❤
Thanks, Megan. Just sayin’, If someone had told me 10 years ago as I planned to leave an abusive marriage, with nothing to my name but my car, and a bit of furniture, that I would in 10 years be living in Florida, retired, hanging out with my sisters…..I wouldn’t have believed them. Life is wonderful…..
