Back on November 18 of this past year I made a promise to send a hand written letter of gratitude to someone deserving. It could be a friend from childhood, a clerk in a retail store, or even an ex. Although I have had to sacrifice a letter each and every day, I have been consistently writing at least twice a week.
Being chief, cook and bottle washer as a solo sailing…Continue

No blogging the past few days due to a pleasant interruption by friends Carol and Paul. Their visit is a real treat as they are the first ones to visit during Year 2 of my nomadic lifestyle. Here in Boot Key adjustment has been easy. The masthead light is working, even though I forgot to put the LED bulbs in. That should be an easy change. Monday the Yanmar will bless Danny Diesel.

Year 1 started in Janaury 2013, the first year of my retirement. Year 2 began January 2014. The Days, such as Day 1, Day 2 refer to particular times.

DSC_0895.JPGIt finally dawned on me how I can put photos onto my written blog section. For the past few months I have posted pictures under the Photos section. But this section, blog post, is where I should be putting my ramblings.
In the future, starting now, I will try to serrate so as not to bore those wanting to look at those pictures that should be worth a thousand words.…Continue

Day 55 and day 1. The end of the transition period from ending a romantic relationship to the start of a new life as a single woman has begun. Oh, I could dwell on the shoulda, woulda, coulda.

Either way, tomorrow will be a transition chapter, an interlude perhaps between 2013's love affair and 2014's love of life.
