Sunday the weather was unseasonably warm.
Joe and I went for a walk on the beach.
We scrambled through the dune grass and shrubbery.
It was so much fun to be out of doors with him.
We explored places for picnics
and found a few hidden away tucked away
down into the grasses and surrounded by scrub pines
and wild rose bushes.
Perfect for a summer afternoon picnic
when everything's in bloom.
We look like a couple of old folk out to pasture...
Our house is the big green one in the center of the picture.
I made baked egg cups...sausage, peppers, and onions, topped with eggs,
that I baked in a muffin tin.
I froze them and Joe was able to have a nice fresh breakfast when he got to work.
I think I overcooked them a little bit as they were a bit rubbery.
Next time I think I'll bake it all in a baking dish so it turns out flat.
I drive Joe to the bus stop early...his bus leaves at 5:20 am
It's only a 5 minute drive. I come back and get ready for work,
drive to the train station and we come home together.
In the morning when we are both getting into the car
the January stars are strikingly beautiful.
Here's a link to a beautiful piece by George Winston called
It's nice to start the morning out star-gazing with my husband.
We didn't get to see the boys last weekend
but it was nice to have a quiet and restful time
to just hang around the house.
Bonnie sent me a video of Verne playing the ukulele
that we gave him.
It's the next best thing to me getting to see him.
