enjoying it! right on the beach. Found tons of sanddollars this morning, but not a speck of sea glass...interesting! I love that the roads, etc are so much cleaner up here...and hubby keeps picking on me as more folks seem to be conscious of their natural good foods and my kind of food is plentiful and tastes better....but expensive! Found a great little yarn store yesterday within walking distance of our hotel, will have to go back though, she didn't take plastic, and i did not have enough cash or my check book. A new brand of organic cotton i was not familiar with and a great pattern book as well. Starts with an S but cant remember it!
Hubby is at work right now but we have the next 3 days off to venture out and play tourist. Watching tons of kites flying as well as a flock of canadian geese that have just landed below our lanai. Knitting pedi socks but not crazy about the yarn i grabbed from my stash, weird pooling (and usually pooling does not really bother me much, this is!) Enjoy your holiday weekend!!!

a short note....

hey everyone. Still here just been very busy! Of course work gets super busy as soon as i am down to the end of my time. I have 4 days left! (yeah!!) Not sure how i feel about the fact that they are actually trying to get me to "train" the two girls who will replace me. I was contracted not employed so...... i kind of feel they should figure out their own groove as things got changed and the set up is not really pedi-friendly for the person giving the services. (just ask my neck and back!) But these assumptions are a few reasons for making my decision to leave so easy.

When we are not working or cleaning or doing yardwork around the rain we have been traveling south a bit to help with family situations. Hubby's 87 year young grandmother fell the other day and broke both her hip and collarbone. Not doing well. They have decided to operate this afternoon, total hip replacement, but cannot do anything for the shoulder. Of course dad is beside himself and feels completely at fault (as if) being the son. Grandad is convinced she will not pull through and already seems so lonely. Sadly she will not be able to return to the assisted living home so after 75 years together they are going to be separated. This breaks all our hearts. The grandparents are fabulous folks, strong and full of life. They only stopped camping 3 years back, driving 3 years back (grandad is 93), they play music, compose, etc. I have always thought hubby and my relationship kind of resembles them, both relationship to eachother and our personalities. So keep Bessie in your thoughts today for skilled surgeons hands, low to no pain and healing! (and to grandad who's missing his better half)

Enjoy these summer like rains and weather!
