While most kids are getting ready for their first day of school (parents cheering I’m sure) many are watching the weather channel for updates on Dorian. For some reason this storm has been on my mind. I’m not sure if that’s because we live on the water and we can imagine the devastation and fear around a wicked storm or if our winter haven (Florida) is at risk. Or because my sister flies each week.
Today I woke up to a brilliant orange red sky. I don’t think that bodes well for our forecast for today. But that’s ok. I will be happily situated in my kitchen with our dear friends Zoe and Del. We are going to pickle the planet! Del has a green thumb and the fruits of his labour is on my counter awaiting preservation. We plan to do beets and pickles. Maybe garlic. Who knows?!
They brought their little Yorkie rescue, Eddie. Molly is tolerant but Otto wonders who this mini canine is and why he’s in our space. Eddie is missing an eye. His tiny face is completely adorable and when he glances up at Zoe and Del it’s pure love. This is one lucky little dude.
Zoe and Del just celebrated their 50th anniversary. I can’t imagine getting married at 17 years of age. But 3 kids and a pile of grandkids later they are still showing everyone what love and commitment are all about. Rudy and I will be 31 years tomorrow. It’s inspiring to see what 50 looks like.
So glad to spend time with old friends. Even if there’s a sailors warning.
Godspeed to those in the path of Dorian.
