A Good Night’s Sleep

Doorway in San Miguel (Mexico)

For the first time in I don't know how long I had a really great night's sleep. I normally have bizarre and exhausting dreams all night long and sometimes it feels as if I am leading a different life as I sleep, but last night I was spared all that drama. It feels great! Maybe it was because we slept with the air conditioning on and the windows closed and all that nasty pollen from our big pine tree (which is right in front of the bedroom windows) couldn't float in. I feel as cheerful as this doorway!

It also feels good in a strange way to embrace Facebook. All that angst and anger last year has passed. I've let it go, and it too feels freeing. 

Robby did a fairly good job on cleaning up the pool yesterday after about six diaper changes. It still needs some work before we swim this weekend. We will fire up the pool heater (hurray!) on Saturday morning. It's predicted to be a really nice weekend. Can't wait for that first swim. I know it will take me awhile to get back to doing 30 lengths again, but however many I can do will feel great. Nothing works out the kinks like swimming. 

Today the back decks and the pool deck are being power-washed. When that's done we can finish setting up the cabana and move into our outside space for the summer. 

Ceviche is on the menu for Sunday for sure. The Warwick Farmer's Market now has a fishmonger! He showed up last week much to our surprise. All the fish comes from Hampton Bay. We'll head to the market early to get the best selection as he was super busy with lines of people waiting last week.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
