brrrrrrrr. too cold. 'bye

My fingers are red tipped and stiff from the cold and I'm cranky after loading freight all afternoon. My usually cheery drivers were cranky too. The temperature's dropped almost 50 degrees in the last twelve hours. It was so warm in the house last night, I flung all the windows wide open before going to bed, fighting the urge to turn on the air.

I am leaving for warmer climes shortly. In a way, I'm glad for this sudden cold snap, as it makes the delicious warmth of Mazatlan an even greater pleasure. I need walks on the beach, sunsets over the Pacific, waves lapping at my bare toes.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend. It's a strange one here, as I'm not cooking or having family in for the first time in 16 years. Just escaping. To warmth, sand, sunshine. See you in December.

Hey Babe!
Been thinking of you as we enjoy very warm (for us!)early summer 22-28 days.

Have a nice break, don't forget the sunscreen!

Brion.

we've missed you but I'm glad you're getting away for a vacation. Enjoy the sun, the sand, the mere joy of being able to sit back and relax. You deserve every minute of it.

See you December.

I don't really mind New England winters all that much, but I have to say that the prospect of a beach in Mexico sounds great right about now. sigh!

I'll try not to grind my teeth while I am roasting dinner, thinking about the beach.

Baking on the beach beats the hell out of basting a turkey in my opinion. Have a great time!

I'll bet that friend of yours that works for you is cold and lonely with you being gone. I feel sad for her. Have you ever considered taking her with you? That would probably be a nice gesture on your part. She seems like a really selfless person though, so she probably doesn't mind being abandoned in that cold, cold city you live in!

Glad you are back, you gorgeous, vibrant, intelligent, Belle. I have sent you e-mails today, but my .mac account is acting all screwy, and I don't think you got them. I was just trying to wish you a happy return after seeing your post over at JMG. Looking forward to your next post!
