It has been a long time since I have written an entry on this blog, but here it goes. Things have been super busy since my last post five months ago. My husband and I have moved, he has had two surgeries (as a result of his fall off his boat last spring) and I have been re-nesting our townhouse. I like to decorate but I have been doing this in bits and spurts. It would be nice if money were no object! I do have lots of "stuff" to work with, though. We moved from a sizeable house with a large yard and lots of trees to a townhouse in a community with NO trees and no yard. We actually like this new place - slightly smaller - with a different room configuration. I find that I greatly miss my yard and trees, though. The upkeep here is easier and utility bills are more reasonable.
Spring is just around the corner and today in southern coastal Delaware it is supposed to reach 70 degrees. I am leaving for the beach (10 minutes away) to take a walk by the ocean. My walks are usually "head-down" looking for shells or beach glass. When I moved here in 1992 one thing I noticed was that there were not a lot of shells on the beaches. I remember the New Jersey beaches having lots of shells, including large clam shells which we would gather and paint when I was a little girl. I have heard that the beaches there have less shells than they used to have also.
So long for now. Hopefully, I will keep up with my blogging a little better than I have recently.
UPDATE: Returned home from the beach. Walked a mile 80 degrees - lots of people of all ages, dogs, kites.........but no seashells. Got to my car, decided to get out and take a picture with my cell phone, my car locked automatically with my keys inside. Had to call my husband to go home, get my spare keys and bring them to me. Still - what a nice day!
