The last couple of months have been full. 
We have been back in full renovation mode working on the carport.

Steve works all day.  

My job is to take care of our home and the people who live there. 

Eat Dinner 

Work on the renovation until dark 

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

There are no regrets however we get tired. 

I can take breaks since my job does not require a boss and expectations. 

But Steve? Not so much. He’s a mover and a shaker. I’ve always known that the only way to get him to stop is to get him out of town. So at least 3 times a year, that’s what we do. 

We pause. 

Even if only for a few days. 

There is a work weekend every summer around this time that is a must attend

Beautiful hotel with a room overlooking the ocean. No complaints here.

But when the weekend is over it’s time to go. 

Go where? 

To seclusion.

Go to wherever we can pause.

Go to wherever there is calmness and serenity.

A place where at 8:30am a hard working man can still be sleeping soundly. 

A place where it doesn’t matter if it rains all day because we are on pause. 

A place where we can ride bikes and enjoy drippy ice cream cones.

A place where we can reed a book and laugh a lot. 

A place where if they phones rings, I can give “the look” and it won’t get answered. 

There are people we miss but we get daily pictures and videos 

Our home includes a lot of people and we are grateful that it is watched over because sometimes a pause is necessary.

Have great day friends. I’m heading over to the table in the middle of the courtyard surrounded by plants that grow only at the beach to get a muffin and some coffee.

My beach chair is calling my name.
