Watching & Waiting…

Looking out the front door, towards the ocean… wind, ever so calm and you feel a cool brush of the breeze and behind it, you feel a heaviness upon the air… we are having a hurricane….

Go figure, no matter where I move to… hurricane’s or tornado’s or earthquakes and each place had such an event… as if nature is reminding me, be mindful of where I step…

Not much in the way of bird song…, sun is rising behind the dark clouds on the horizon… and the news tells us, Douglas is going to drop west… back into our laps… not to let our guard down yet… we are on a high end of the seal level section of the coastline… but we are close to that coast line…

Still no dreaming… which surprises me, with the stress we should be feeling… but been there, done that… this is just another day on an island…

Body is adapting to the exercise and getting stronger and hurts more.. but I expect that… remember that from my military days…

My hubby accepts the way things are back home… for me, it’s a disappointment… but, you have to give into the fantasy, to see if it plays out… mine didn’t… an that’s just the way things turn out, because of people’s choice’s… their’s didn’t include ours… they have their lives… just not enough room for us…

So we are looking for property on the coast… it’s what he wants and is willing to do the maintenance involved with coastal living… as long as it’s not me… won’t be a big home, because we want to pay the mortgage off, in 20 years or less… so we’ll be looking for a deal, with waterfront to the ocean and beach access… an hoping something comes along $100,000 less than I want to pay…

Waiting on the dentist… I expect a call in the next week or two for an appointment and fitting… an find out what the game plan is…

We are hoping Dr. Fauci is right and that by late 2021, we have a vaccine…. so we can leave here 2022… housing here is still stable and building is still going on… so, we will continue our updates and be ready… but it means we get to paint the inside… again… all but the ceiling… oh joy… I hate painting…

But we figure if we plan right, prepare and pay attention… we should come out of this better than we would have last year, when we thought we had it sold… so… just keep plugging along…

Things to do, to make sure we are ready for this afternoon… hoping that cool water and wind sheer, works in our favor…. an we don’t lose power or anything…..

Toodles….

Adorable Spite, waiting on Douglas to make his appearance….
