I could sit on the bed and see the sea!
There was a shark incident on our beach. A snorkeler saw a shadow, felt a bump, felt PAIN and swam to shore. He survived but they closed the beach for swimmers and there were A LOT of helicopters and jet ski life guards around for our last two days.
My photos are out of order and I'm too lazy to cut and paste, so here we have our girls' having a Starbucks knitting lesson. It was so fun to meet them yesterday afternoon at the bigger Starbucks, hunker down in the cozy seats, drink hot beverages, and laugh and knit. It was snowing outside and VERY enjoyable and extremely snug inside. We stayed a long time and this mama LOVED a sweet time with our lovely girls!
Yes, we all wore boots!
The coffee break above was what I call PERFECT!
We're readjusting to the cold. Sweaters. Hot drinks. Knitting (I'm making Samantha a knitted blanket). Writing and reading (my two favorite wordy things to do).
Chili for dinner.
Oh by the way, Bill and I were talking while we sat in Maui and he said something that kind of hurt my feelers, but then began to make sense. I said, "I love homemaking." He said, "No, you don't." Hmmmm. He said, "You like being a homebody, but I wouldn't say you love homemaking." He explained further and said that when he thinks of someone who loves homemaking, he thinks of those who hustle about cleaning, straightening, GETTING THINGS done and that's not me. He said what I really like to do is sit at my computer (ha!) and read and I do those things at home, so that makes me more of a homebody than a homemaker. I sort of disagree, but I'm still pondering this distinction. What do you think? Do you think that only those who check things off impressive lists and are constantly scrubbing and tidying are more easily defined as homemakers and those of us who just like to be home are homebodies? Tell me.
It's good to be back at my computer, where I sit and spend lots of happy time (a little bit of sarcasm there).
How are YOU?
