I Need A Rock

It is finally beginning to warm up...

there are signs of life ....
the trees are sprouting tiny chartreuse leaves.

The forsythia are just now starting to bloom.
The tulips are beyond confused

And so am I.

 Last Thursday I went sailing with a friend and it was beyond divine.
Not a cloud in the sky.
I really thought that I had died and gone to heaven.

my girl JOEY

It was a good day.
One of the best that I have had since my move here.

The next day I worked in the yard with my mother
and it was a typically dismal and chilly.
We mulched, raked leaves and planted.

The very next day was Saturday and I went to work,
and at work I wear an orange apron.
I guess things could be worse.
Really? Could they?

I began to wait on a man,
he looked so familiar to me { I never forget a face}
so I asked him where he was from.
He said " Boca Raton Florida"
and at that very second I knew where I knew him from.
He looked at me and said;
" Oh, You're the girl with the little showroom in Royal Palm Plaza"

I quickly looked around for a rock to crawl under...

I said yes, "How nice to see you again."
I felt like I needed to explain myself....
Why was I up here, why was I working at a big box store
wearing and orange apron....

I wanted to tell him 
that I was 
in the witness protection program!!!
I didn't.

Anyway, I have more to tell about a man in my life, I will tell more later.
I Hope all are doing well and having a great summer.

  1. So sorry for you Renee, glad you had one good day in a year.
    I know you love working at Grey Gardens. Don't forget your next office visit.
    The scans are back on your frontal lobe. Have a great Sail day, be careful..

  2. Always great to hear from you..Funny story, can't wait to hear more..All best from Canada..Enjoy the nice weather ;)

  3. very funny- Hi Rene! I am glad to see you here and to know about a man in your life? Youve got me curious. I hope summer is wonderful for you and that you find more peaceful days sailing. xo Nancy

  4. Obviously I have missed a lot over the past year! I'm off to learn all about it but it lovely to see you are still here and I have missed you but depression is a funny thing and one tends not to care about anything or anyone but that is all behind me (I hope) and with acceptance comes a desire to enter the human race and my blogging friends once again. I missed you my lovely friend Jules xx

  5. Iam so happy to hear you are settling in Renee.

  6. I laughed out loud at your story. YOU do not need to explain yourself to is a challenge for everyone. You are rebuilding your life and making something wonderful, not to mention that you get to spend lots of time with your mom!

    Have a great week. I am looking forward to hearing more!

  7. I had a good chuckle at this Renee :-)
    All sounds good, you seem to be finding your moxie.
    I'm intrigued about the "man". Do tell more.

  8. Glad you got to go sailing... I wish to do that this Summer! I have to say this....just have to.... I was a Retail Manager/Merchandiser for over 16 years....loved every minute of it... the orange apron is not such a bad thing...... ;)
