FEELING ALMOST LIKE A HOOMAN AGAIN

Lighthouse

My Harley Stud and I decided that instead of doing something productive like working around the house today, we would take a ride on the bike and get some fresh air. Sometimes you’ve got to just ignore all that needs to be done and get away for a few hours or else you just might drop your basket. So off we went on his little two wheeled fun-mobile.

We stopped and bought a couple of subs and some water (Did I mention that Dr. Black Cloud said no more Diet Coke for MHS? EEK. The poor man is having withdrawals.) and rode to this park where we sat in the shade and ate our lunch while we enjoyed the view. There were a bunch of pelicans begging for scraps, fish guts or anything else they could get. Little boys fishing, big boys fishing, lovers on benches and lots of boats in the water were all there for our amusement.

If you look carefully, you can see the lighthouse in the distance. I always feel more at ease when I can see the lighthouse. Like an old man at sea, it guides me home. It is my beacon of hope, a reminder of light and love and all things good. It nourishes my soul.

The weekend is almost over. I plan to relax for all that is left of it. Reruns for dinner combined with a fresh salad, a loaf of bread and some wine. MHS is mowing the yard, which is usually my chore. I’m in the middle of a book that I can’t seem to put down.

God’s in His heaven and all’s right with the world. Even if it’s just for tonight.




Hugs,
Smart Mouth Broad

What a perfect way to spend the day and what a beautiful area. Where is that?

Jan said...

Ah, I CAN see the lighthouse. I'm so glad you're enjoying your day. This weekend has just seemed to short, but I'm sure that has a lot to do with the fact that Beloved had to leave this afternoon and drive to Michigan for the week on business. :( Ah, well - we got to spend over a week with our adorable grandson and next Saturday my kids will be coming to visit for the Thanksgiving holiday. Woo-hoo!

You're right - all IS right with the world.

What a beautiful picture. I'm sorry. I didn't quite see all of your post as I'm reading it on my cell phone right now. Did you say where the light house is? Which state is it in?

Beautiful scene, gorgeous sunshine! So great you "let things go" because that crap doesn't matter. Being together is what's important!

I love this! And I'm glad you were able to enjoy a glorious day like you did. All is right with the world! :)

It's amazing how versatile wine is. I find that most things that accompany it can turn it into a meal :)

Sounds perfect. I love to leave chores behind and go for a ride. A good way to reconnect with the loved one also.

Hmmmm...

Your weekend looks wonderful!My weekend was windy( stormy!) and very wet. I was on my way to choir practice on Saturday morning and had a cape over my coat, but I hardly cycled for 5 minutes then I had to return for I was wet through. When I had put on dry and warm clothes, I took a nice hot coffee and felt okay!

Oz Girl said...

*sigh* what a great view and it looks so nice and WARM.

Glad you said to hell with the house work and went on the bike ride... speaking for myself, I know how hard it is to do something like that, when you have so many things at home screaming for attention. Good for you and MHS!! :)

Our Friday is supposed to be 63 and sunny. We'll be working around the house. *sigh*

I sigh a lot, don't I?
