Good Weather and Work Day


Today was the day…

We should have swum but didn’t. It was an incredible day for swimming, but we concluded last night that it wouldn’t be possible. This morning, we woke early, mainly because we had heard there would be a total eclipse of the moon. We saw it before it dipped behind the mountain. I knew others would produce brilliant photos and I was not disappointed.

I stayed awake, we went through our normal routine and by 7am I was working. It meant I worked a lot of hours.

The weather was super warm for May. There was hardly any wind and the sea was flat. It was a great laundry day and we did 3 loads. We said goodbye to guests in the Sea-View apartment. The guest in the cottage chose to stay another night. We got another booking, so altogether it was a good work day.

The sunrises and sunsets have been particularly splendid this week. This is the moon rising this evening.


This was sunrise a few days ago. For a few remarkable minutes, the sea was pink. Taken with my cell phone with no digital enhancement.

It quickly changed as the clouds moved over the sun, so I was glad to have seen it. This morning, I did something slightly different. Before the sun rose it was cold, so I sat on  my rocking chair with my laptop and started work that way. My view pre-sunrise..

As soon as the sun rises, we drop all the blinds. That’s when it’s best to go to the beach. By the time we return, the glare is slightly less. Today, I worked with all the blinds down and all the doors wide open.  They said it was 27C but outside it felt hotter.

We had dinner on the balcony this evening, enjoying the rising moon and the still evening on the hottest day in May.

Tomorrow will be different. Perhaps we will swim.

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

The best is yet to come – we are only passing through.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,

Helga xx 🙂
