Out On The Deck Again

The rainy season here in FL is over, I guess.. We haven’t had any rain since Irma left us, almost 2 weeks now. And the air has been nice, not so humid. Yesterday it was 91° but only 48% humidity, which is really low for here. It was comfortable. And last night the temps dropped into the mid 70’s, instead of hovering around 80. It was a lovely night to sit outdoors at open mic night.

They had a good show last night. It seemed all the really talented people showed up to perform. Lots of them had written hurricane songs, some were tongue in cheek, some were metaphoric. All were good. Most of the performers who play there have recorded their music onto CD’s which you can buy for $10. I have one or two. Open mic ran late. Normally it’s over by 9:30 but last night it ran til almost 10. No one was complaining, lol. It was so good to hang around with everyone for a while, just catching up between performances, and enjoying the music.

I’m sitting on my deck writing this this morning. I have not done this since early spring, because of the heat and the bugs. The bugs don’t seem to be too bad right now, but I’m still armed with my anti-bug devices: citronella buckets, coils that you burn that the bugs don’t like, and as a last resort, bug spray. It’s so peaceful here in the morning. We had coffee out here, and watched the squirrels and the birds, and the geckos running around.

I’m expecting my generator to be delivered today sometime. I have no idea when, so I put a note on my front door that if I don’t answer to please come around to the back of the house. Dan had some errands to run, so hopefully he’ll be back when it’s delivered. What a sense of security that will give me, when it’s hooked up. It should be able to run the whole house in an outage.

Yesterday afternoon, Dan built me two steps to step down from my deck. Previously, I had bricks piled up to make a step. I have slipped on them and hurt myself, and he turned his ankle on them once or twice. Now I have two professionally done steps, that are safe. I’m so excited about it, probably because no one else ever did something like that for me. I told him, the other men who used to be in my life would have probably been likely to grease them and tell me to be careful, and then watch me fall. Or they would have laughed at me, if I had broached the subject of needing steps, and told me to have my handyman do it. Dan and I talked about it briefly, how we needed steps. Next thing I knew he had all the lumber and his tools to build them, and in about 3 hours yesterday, they were done.

But that’s the difference, Dan is someone who takes care of the people he loves in his life. I’m lucky to be one of them. There’s not a self-serving bone in his body.

I’m grateful for a lot of things this morning. For the place I’m at and for the journey here. Manifesting dreams continuously.

Love and light.
