I am so enjoying the simple things in life…

14 Jun

As you might know by now I am enjoying my glorious two weeks of vacation. Doing nothing, Decompression. Doing everything.

I went to the beach today. It was the perfect kind of day for me. Overcast and very windy. I could kick back in my chair and watch the clouds pass overhead. It’s something that I seldom get to do. The sound of the surf and wind is what really relaxes me.

I had lunch on the beach. I read some of one of the new novels I picked up. And even when it started to rain, it was glorious because it was different. I had the little roof over my chair so I pulled the beach towel up over me and I enjoyed the rain on the beach for a while. After all, everything I bring to the beach is meant to get wet. I braided my hair this morning. I didn’t have any makeup on. What does it matter?

By the time I got home, I was chilled so I headed for a long hot shower and I flipped the heat lamps on in the ceiling of the bathroom.

For the rest of my day, I am camped out on the chaise in the living room watching High Seas on Netflix. I very seldom watch television, so this is a treat for me. I have a cup of baked apple tea and a cookie.

I can’t begin to tell you how great it is to get up and just enjoy some of the simple things in life. Three years without a day of vacation was far too long. That’s not something that I want to repeat again. It’s good for the mind, body and soul to just take some time like this occasionally and enjoy it.

I’ll be taking the easy road for dinner. I have some french bread that I’ll toast to go with the Lobster Bisque. On a rainy, Florida day, it seems a good way to enjoy it.

And then I’ll go back to reading my novel for a while.

I’m enjoying this. I really am. I think I live in one of the last great places on earth when you can find your solitude on a beach. Most of South Florida has very crowded beaches. However, I like peace and solitude on a beach and this is one of the reasons I’ve been here so many years.
