Did ya' ever notice that you have to leave your own home to get any peace and quiet?
I decided that today was the day! I had had vehicle was sideswiped in a parking lot - ouch, the computer crashed and left me technologically adrift for 4 days, my dad's house is quickly turning into the money pit and my husband was on my last,living nerve soooooo..............
I got in his car, intending to go to the local Dunkin Donuts, and ended up miles from home, standing on a jetty watching little shore birds scamper up to the ocean's edge and then run willy-nilly away from the waves as they crashed upon the sand. I must have stood there for an hour watching those birds, listening to the gulls screaming overhead, feeling the wind, the spray, the serenity of the endlessly rolling sea.
It was the most refreshing, renewing time I've had recently. It lifted my spirits and just gave me such peace. Aaaahhhhhhh....


  1. Oh I am so happy you took a little time for yourself, you totally deserve it and I truly hope you will do this more often.
    Keeping you in my heart and prayers always, big hugs to you and to George.....:-)

  2. That was just what you needed!
    So glad you got away.
    I love the calming nature that the sea.
    It can do wonders!
