I don’t know anyone that’s had more life upheavals in their life than me. Well maybe my little sister. Nope, on second thought I still win. Larry once said to me it’s like I’ve had all these different lives. And now I have two more to add. I still have an extremely hard time processing that 3 years with the Bakers is over. I mean just over. It’s so weird. But that’s another life to add to the past, the past.
And here I am on life number 374 living at the beach, alone. Alone is not new. At the beach, in Florida is new. I have new friends and new things to do. Date night has been replaced with waiting by the phone for Stephanie to come home on the weekends so we can go to dinner on Friday night. I guess she’s my date now. She introduced me to Theresa, another Pittsburgher, that goes back and forth between her place up north and down here on Pass-a-Grille. Theresa and I have been hanging out this week. I love friends. Last night I met a new person who was a heck of a lot of fun and reconnected with Debbie who I haven’t seen in 30 years. But really it’s fun meeting new people. They’ve all been living at the beach for years. I also have my neighbor who I usually do something with every day, whether it’s walking on the beach, or yesterday I went to her house where she does her glass artwork and told her that I want to make something. So she’s going to help me make a fused glass project. I decided on a mirror. I was going to get mine out of storage but I thought, heck why not MAKE one? Ya know? My neighbor has this bin of glass stuff she was throwing out for whatever reason, damaged or not selling. So look at my new “stuff” from her throw away pile:
For the umpteenth time I am rebuilding my life again. Thankful for old and new friends. Both the human kind and the decorative kind. I will get another Flamingo someday. I will rebuild slowly.
Tonight is a sunset party with the three of us Sewickley people (old friends) at Rick’s house back down in Pass-a-Grille. I spend a lot of time in Pass-a-Grille but I like my home being here on Sunset Beach. At least this month.
Looking forward to the name suggestions for my fish.
