I’m a sucker for the Olympics. So much youth, energy, skill and heart . . .and too often, heartbreak. Behind every athlete a story, and you know how much I love a good story. I should be working, but I’m watching.
We leave Topsail tomorrow. We’ve accomplished so much in the condo. The best part was getting John’s shell photos on the wall. He’s been doing fine art commissions for a long time but this is the first one he’s done just for us. He took all the images on the beach behind the condo the last time we were here, and that makes them extra special.
I just came in from taking the dogs out for their nightime stroll. It’s freezing, but the winter sky is incredible, with no lights or trees to block the view of Orion and all those other folks and animals who live up in the heavens. Just stunning.
My characters have been hanging out with me here, but they’d like a little more of my attention so tomorrow I’ll immerse myself in their world again and the handyman will take over here at the condo to finish the kitchen.
I hope you’re all keeping warm. I am so ready for winter to be over!
