Adventures abound!

I did get a massage yesterday, in one of their new cabanas, so Mel, no worries ... I was able to see that view the whole time. Awesomeness.

We decided to rent a Jeep, today. Scary, when you consider that American made cars are driven on the left hand side of the road. And the natives drive like a bat out of hell.


At least we can relax when the stressful driving is over. And it allowed my honey to have his heart's desire ... to explore The Other Side Of The Island. My opinion? The Other Side Of The Island has Skinny Legs, The Island Blues, a handful of shops, a few more bars, and pretty much the same views as we have here!

Relaxtion, Part Quatre.


This relaxing moment brought to you courtesy of the United States Virgin Islands.

My sweetie's off at his massage appointment, and I'm wandering around with the camera. And thinking about scheduling my own massage.

I am ridiculously happy

The past month has been very trying for me.

I've been ill & sustained a couple of minor injuries that have kept me from resuming my regular workout schedule after our vacation back in May.

I've had a number of issues dropped in my lap that really couldn't be tabled or delegated.

The net result is that I've been running on fumes, and really struggling, internally. One of my close friends (close as in I can tell her pretty much anything ... and close as in she lives next door!) knows about this, and even though she's going through some major changes in her work life, she's been just awesome in supporting me.

So, tonight, she's been awesome. We're attending a friend's wedding tomorrow. I'm responsible for the guestbook, and my sweetie is scheduled to work later than we had hoped. Well, she's taking the stress out of the equation, because she's going early to help decorate & will just schlep the guestbook along with her. Stress begone! AND, one long convoluted conversation later, she handed me four iced sugar cookies (sequestered in her freezer) from a cookie bouquet she'd received weeks ago. I loved the one she gave me from it when she first got it ... but it turned out that she (and her husband) didn't care much for them. Less stress ... and sweet sugary goodness to put in my own freezer for treats in the months to come.

Barbara rocks.
