My freelance Barbados life

I  am having an interesting conversation with a friend of mine, about how I’m “sorry, but not sorry.”  I worry that my facebook and blog posts are really going to get on people’s nerves, but at the same time, I am so darned excited to be living my dream. I just have to share that excitement.

I would like to take a moment and say that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my Mom. She’s the one who suggested we come down here back in 2009. Without that suggestion, I certainly wouldn’t have thought to come here on my own. Barbados wasn’t even on my radar. And while she may not physically be here, she is spiritually. Well, I guess she kind of is physically, too. I brought her ashes with me. So Mom, thank you. Thank you for introducing me to the place I spiritually belong.

Today has been another great day. I am developing a much better routine as I go. Especially with this freelance writing I have been doing, I need to get a system down for “work hours” versus “play hours.” Although today that got a bit shot as the internet was glitchy and I couldn’t download the files I needed. So while I waited for things to get fixed, I did some laundry. I am now back on track and should be able to finish this article by bedtime. (I did take a swim break at 4pm as I just couldn’t resist the pull of the ocean).

The rest of my day will be low-key: dinner (flying fish, rice and sauteed cabbage) and some more work. All in an effort to have a play day tomorrow.

Thunder Bay - pretty much my own private beach
