Let it rain

Hi everyone! Thanks for all your kind and supportive comments about Ann's death, it really is so wonderful to have blogging friends!

I took a 3 day weekend so I could rest and recuperate from this past week. I didn't plan to take off today, Monday, it just seemed like a good idea at 4:00 am when I got out of bed and saw we were having a tropical storm here in Connecticut.
I'm having so much fun living here. I just wish it was full time instead of only the weekends.
This past Saturday morning I was cleaning the hummingbird feeders and making more food for them (sugar water). I was standing at the kitchen sink and I watched out the window as a green hummingbird was looking for the feeders. He flew all around the area of the deck where they usually are and then he flew directly in front of the window and looked right at me as if to say, "Hey Lady, where's my food already?" I raised my index finger to let him know 'one minute' and that seemed to satisfy him.
I named that one 'Harry', after my Jewish grandfather.
So I hung out all day doing nothing, except I cleaned out the fireplace and I organized my bedroom closet.
And listen to the rain pitter-patter on the roof.
Yeah, I could get used to this new life.

Sounds like a dreamy day. I say look for a job nearer to home.

Sounds simply divine! I second MG's motion.

It does sound nice - maybe a job closer to home would be great for you if you can find it. Can't wait to see pictures of this new home.

My kind of day!! How long do you think before you're working and living there fulltime? Any deadlines on when you'll leave the position you're at now?
