After a few months of turmoil and stress and indecision – finally a decision has been made for the next chapter in my life!
Next weekend, I will be embarking on a 6 day journey across the country to move closer to my son and his family, and my daughter and grandson. This decision was not taken lightly and I have pondered over the decision for the past few weeks. It’s not an easy decision but I am excited and anxious to get a(nother) new start on life!
I will be doing daily blogs of my adventure across this great country I call home – lots of pictures and stories to share. Perhaps I’ll even manage a video or two – but no promises on that one! Once I get settled out west, I will be back in full blogging mode. My blog has been lacking lately due to the stress of getting this new life organized!
Seven years ago, I landed in Italy for my very first European trip. It was an amazing trip, with my daughter along, and meeting so many people from the States, and Australia – some are still friends! This was the trip that put the travel bug in me that hasn’t left. I loved Italy – in particular Venice – and I will definitely make it back there again. Some pictures from my trip!
Yesterday was my Dad’s funeral and because of the weather and it being outside, we had a 15 minute service. It was nice and we all went to brunch. My family drives me crazy but it was nice to be all together ❤.
But today was me day. I rented a car and took off for the day. Went for a drive and had breakfast at one of my favourite places, Angel’s Diner.
Came home and did some cleaning. Then I took off again. Some shopping and driving down to the beach. It was surreal at the waterfront. The fog was slowly lifting and it made for some amazing views.
I ended up on a patio, enjoyed an early dinner of a Pickerel Po’boy sandwich. It was a perfect me day. Sometimes we need mental health days to reset our minds.
I don’t do this very often, as I don’t have a car. Rented one for the past couple of days and definitely made it worth my while!
Last night, I decided to break one of my rules of isolation, and had my best friend over for a home cooked meal, some wine, enjoyable conversation and even threw in a game of Tri-Bonds! It was just what we both needed – a night of normalcy during these times.
I’m off today and tomorrow, so today I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice long walk, sat in the sun for a bit, and then headed over to a lovely bakery close by for a decadent afternoon treat!
What do you do to treat yourself on a beautiful relaxing day off?
