I am feeling weary but very satisfied by what a small and mighty group can accomplish.
We have not completed the job and it will require a few more days on the job but at a less frantic pace.
The most fun I had was going through boxes and boxes of family photographs.
Many were of people that I didn't know and unfortunately there were no names or dates identifying them, so they got recycled.
Mr. HB's Family
in front of their home in the mid 1950's
Mr. HB looks so cute as a toddler!
Look at that daffodil bed, it must be Springtime.
Mr. HB must be about 10 years old here fishing in the BC Gulf Islands
aboard the family's first boat
an Ed Monk designed wooden classic.
She is anchored in what was to become their favourite anchorage
an inlet near Prevost Island.
It's a lovely spot,
protected and peaceful
we used to get fresh oysters off the rocks at low tide.
Mr. HB had a speed boat when we met and he was a fabulous skier
this inlet was the perfect place to practice his skills
and impress his girlfriend
We have also spent many lovely days anchored there aboard our Chris Craft Constellation.
Waking up at first light
a mug of fresh brewed coffee in hand
and a quiet and calm surface
listening to the gulls
waiting for the day to unfold
and then staying up after dark looking up at the stars
they are so much brighter without ambient light from the city.
There's nothing like a box of old photos to stir up the memories!
Mr. HB is snoozing on the sofa
and I have snuck off to my computer
to write a quick post
and have a cup of Tea
before turning in for the night.
I've recently discovered a new and tasty Herbal Tea
African Nectar is delicious too.
You might like to try some
a sampler pack is available which is a great way to find one that you might enjoy
I feel the need to digest the immense emotions that have surfaced
I am surprised by the intensity of this experience
and thoughts seem to flit in and out
of innocent times
when one never considered mortality
or sorting out belongings that filled up a lifetime
A cup of tea is the perfect drink to sip while pondering life and making plans...
in my Humble opinion I think perhaps tea is the "penultimate drink"
or maybe I am just a tea grammy!
What do you think?
