Sunshine, Palm Trees and Wafting Breezes

I love living in paradise, if only for a week at a time.

Just talked with a client in Boston…. he spent the last hour scraping his car windshield before heading out to work. I sent him my sympathies. If you, dear reader, are in a likewise position, you get my sympathies too. Just for this week I am lucky enough to be sitting poolside, sipping G & Ts, eating fabu food and doing nuthin’ much except keeping up my blogs.

Don’t be jealous, though. It’s only for the week. By Sunday I will be back staring out the front door at the frozen bushes in the front yard and watching the frosty snowflakes fall. I’ll be thinking back on these warm days with longing. Life moves on. It’s important to live in the moment. Stay awake and pay attention to what you have in front of you. It’s going to change—in fact, it just did change. Zap! Changed again! Oh isn’t life exciting!!!! 🙂

What are you doing to keep up with time?

We’ll save the cold and dreary until you get back. The weather is actually quite warm today. Other than a rainy Wednesday we should be sitting pretty for another week. Enjoy the warm breezes.

What a life you have, basking in the sun on the FLA Riviera! Glad that you are enjoying every minute.

Let me tell you, it was tough getting back to work after a nice long weekend. You, dear CD, know how to live!

Good luck on your way home. Chappy. I keep reading your blogs and have to laugh. Are you serious? There is more to life than bragging. Who is your audience? Pour yourself another drink and get real. Florida is not paradise. Mr Dewar and myself have been world travelers and we realize there is no place called paradise, only a place called home. Home is within your heart. Hope you can find your way home.

“Florida has the reputation of being a creepy, crawly kind of state, but passengers aboard an American Airlines flight bound from Miami to Boston, in October 2010 were still surprised to learn that their plane was delayed due to a cockroach infestation in the cabin. A colony of the much-maligned insects had taken up residence on the curtain hung between the first class cabin and the cockpit. It took 90 minutes to contain the cockroach problem and for the plane to be cleared to leave.”
