A group of us went to C.I.'s place on Martha's Vineyard for the holiday weekend and since Rebecca is a hop, skip and jump away, she invited me to stay two days at her place. (I go back to work Thursday so I'll go home Wednesday.) Her place here looks a lot like Carly Simon's place on the Vineyard which we saw and is very homey. We were out on her deck watching the sky and drinking wine and just talking (that's her, her husband Flyboy and me, her baby was down for the night). It was just so magical, the sky looked so wonderful and I said, "I'm going to blog about this sky." She laughed and said, "You never will. I've sat down at the computer thinking I would and I never do. I can never get the words to paint an accurate verbal picture." And sadly, she's correct. But it's so pretty with the water and the sky and nothing blocking the view. A plane will go overhead every now and then but that's about it.
When she and her husband got married the first time, they had Rebecca's place in the city and he had this place (family vacation home) for the summer. But when they divorced, Rebecca wanted this place and he wanted the condo so they swapped. He says it's much nicer than it used to be and that, between their divorce and remarriage, Rebecca's fixed it up and had it added on to.
I was going to highlight Susan at Random Notes, a post about the Kleenex Work Force, but I can't get the page to pop up (when I click on link, it doesn't go anywhere). If you're willing to scroll, click here for her site and she wrote the post Wednesday April 21st. She apparently hasn't blogged in May. Hope she's okay.
I wish I had more to say. I was going to write about the sky looking like a blue-ish, black piece of velvet with these twinkling sparkles. Aren't you glad I'm not doing a whole post on that. Like Rebecca said, it just doesn't work out when you think you're going to write about how amazing the sky looks.
I can write about Third. I'll do that and call it a night.
Betty for saying what she thought I would say. (And she was right about that!)
Okay, I'm going to stare out the window a bit, up at the sky, and then doze off. I'll blog at my usual time tonight.
Wait! Want to do one more thing. The following community sites posted Monday:
