Today my six week "vacation" begins. At the local Java Cafe, sitting outside with my laptop and my coffee. Mr. Ralph and I would do this at least twice a week.
I surely enjoy my back lanai yet sometimes I need to be where the people are. Watching and listening. People here are smiling (hey! they are on vacation and it IS sunny and warm) and almost always say good morning.
The past couple of days has been emptying the fridge and freezer and cabinets of things I cannot use (man, a huge back of frozen prawns ... unopened ... and I am allergic to shellfish). Spent yesterday getting groceries and incidentals. Adjusting to the time. Checking in with great neighbors. Finding where my friends have stashed the cork screw.
And today it is real! Gosh, this decision to live in one place is tough. Family and friends vs. good health and making new friends? Winter in Maui is like your best summer day ... for 3-4 months.
So I've decided to postpone deciding. Maybe tomorrow!
