Holiday decisions

Hi everyone. It's time to make a major holiday decision.
Here it is. It's raining, so do we go to the beach now
that we've finished lunch at a wonderful cafe, the
Chatterbox, in Pugwash, or go for a drive somewhere, and where
will we have dinner, at home, or at the Sandpiper?

Then when will I paint --now while it rains, or
later when we're home again. I tell you the pressure
to follow through on these nagging problems is
pure agony.

I think I'll finish my ice tea and head out.

Wish you were here.

Have a making-the-right-decisions day.

you're on vacation!

Hi Eldon,

Waaay to busy for that. The rain cleared, we walked on the beach, ate at the Sandpiper, and went home to paint and play crib. Pretty much perfect.

Take care,

Hi Liza,

I sit blogging in a cheerful cafe with beautiful flower boxes out the window, and the harbour in view. My friends Noreen and Greg run it, and Noreen is a superb painter. Her work decorates the walls. Believe me I'm having fun. Love hearing from you.
