I woke up this morning to bright blue skies and a nice breeze. I didn’t spleep well last night and ended up taking a sleeping pill about 3 am. No wonder I didn’t get up until 10:30!
Our neighbors built a large fire on the beach last night and lit it about 11:00. At midnight, they set off fireworks; the kind that go up and blossom out. I had a great view from my bed!
When I got up and about I went out to check on the generator. Juana must have turned it on about 9:00 as usual. I went out and shut it off to fill it with diesel but as soon as I started pouring some in, it overflowed! I had checked the gauge and it was all the way around to one side….I assumed that meant it was empty. But, Juana had filled it up before she started it this morning! Just as I realized this, Juana appeared at the door to the generator room wondering why the motor had sut down. We had a good laugh and wished each other a Merry Christmas! I told her she was amazing in how she took care of me.
Then I began my day. Many people worried about me as I was spending the holiday here alone. However, I really have enjoy the quiet and non-commercial-ness of it. I set out a couple of Christmas decorations; nothing elaborate at all…simple. I played a few carols on the piano and listened to some more on the stereo. It’s been a peaceful and reflective holiday.
I spent more time on the quilt top and have a good chance of finishing it in the next couple of days. Then will come the process of quilting. I’m hoping my machine can handle it all.
I spent time reading by the pool. Hard to beat!
Merry Christmas to all!
