I’ve been working on continuing my story at the urging of a few people. I think I have another segment mostly done, and will probably edit it and publish soon. I have to admit that while the original segment was fun, writing from the prompt, it is beginning to feel like work to finish it up. Might just be my mood today.
I have taken a few days off from Question of the Day, mostly because the shooting in Florida and ensuing controversy (as usual) over gun control and my fear that once again it will die down and nothing get done. This has in turn has stopped me from being able to come up with any questions that are not too large or painful for discussion here. I never wanted the Question of the Day to become a political forum. I’ll be back with it, but am taking a short break from it. Hopefully I will find some inspiration for some good questions.
Allergy season seems to be creeping back in. Every day we are sneezing a little bit more, and a little itchier. Even though I am delighted that Florida weather has returned, I guess I’d forgotten that allergy meds are part and parcel of living here for the next few months. Still, it’s a good trade-off in my book, to get 80° to 85° days and 65° nights where you can leave the windows open, and maybe turn the AC on for only a couple hours in the afternoon.
I am particularly happy because my good friends that put us up for 2 weeks last summer in CT are scheduled to come down here on Friday for a week. We are so close, and the four of us have so much fun together. It will be a wonderful.
I may have more company in March, though I’m not sure about that. In April, my little sis is coming for a week, and my son might be coming too, at the same time. I’m really excited for that. Even though I talk to my son every day, usually more than once, I haven’t seen him in a year and I miss him so much! My little sis, I haven’t seen in a year either. She is like my twin almost. It will be good to see her and spend some time together.
It’s a lot of company in the next few months, but it’s good company. After all, it is the season. This weather is why we live here. Mostly, lol. Besides all the benefits for retired people, and family being nearby, and gorgeous beaches.
We got tickets to Cirque de Soleil for tonight as a Christmas gift from my sister. We’re going to make an evening of it, go out to dinner and then to the show, called Volta. She got us good seats (though I’m not sure there are any bad seats there). It should be a lot of fun, and a great show.
The rest of the next few days will be spent preparing the houses for our friends visit. I will probably be here hit or miss for the next 10 days. Hope all is well with everyone. Love and light.
