My sister has gone home. I took her to see the Veteran’s Art Center this morning, and she met the founder. She was very impressed. It’s such a wonderful project. I hope they get the attendance they deserve, they have put so much work into it. She’s going to donate something to the Center, one of her paintings. My brother-in-law is a vet, so she’s eligible as family, to show and sell her art there. But she said she’d just donate it. They’re having a silent auction tonight at a venue too far away for me to go, but I made a necklace for them to auction off.
I think sis really needed the break, after all the company. Right now, her grandson is there with 5 friends, college age kids. They are really good kids, staying in her apartment, and doing their own cooking, etc. My brother-in-law planned a deep sea fishing trip for them for today. We were a little worried, because the wind has been blowing here for days, really hard, which makes for a not easy fishing trip. But the wind died yesterday afternoon, and today, so hopefully, the seas calmed down. 6 kids who aren’t used to boating, especially on the ocean, riding backwards (because you face the back of the boat when fishing) in heavy seas would not be a pretty picture!
After she left I went to Walmart, picked up some prescriptions, then came home, watered my herbs, and the flowers out in front of my house. And the grass. I am so not used to living somewhere where the plants need watering on a regular basis! New England gets rain at least once a week usually, but not here. At least not in this season. This is the dry season til about the middle to end of May. People tell me there are two seasons here, monsoon and tourist. This is tourist, lol. But truth be told, we’ve had very very little rain since the middle of October.
I’m on my deck now, enjoying this lovely afternoon, listening to my music, watching the geckos scamper around. I called my friend Pat, who is curator at the Art Center, and also my old-time childhood friend, and told her I have leftover veggie lasagna so she should stop by here on her way home and eat with me. She was so happy to be offered.
It’s a happy life. No drama is the only way I want to live for the rest of my life. Just breathe in, and breathe out. Love and light, everyone.
