This Weekend

     This weekend. Ahhh. That's what I want to say about it because it was very relaxing, which is exactly what I needed after last week. Thank you for all of your heartfelt comments about the death of my great aunt. They were like little hugs, and I truly appreciated them.
    Sometimes I feel like an outright beach bum, being out in the ocean so often, but I get stressed too, which is probably my own doing, but nevertheless, it happens. I wig out and need quiet time. This is usually a result of too many social gatherings in a row or something emotionally trying taking place. Lately there's been both. When such events occur, I act like a mouse and retreat to my little den where my comfort items live. Things like my family, blanket and journal (ok my stuffed animals too). Or, I play cards, drink wine, and surf with my husband in small waves when no one else is out. This is exactly what I got to do this weekend while social events went on without us. 
       One of the other reasons I have been stressed? Ok, I will tell you, since you sound so curious. 
    We have a big trip coming up. One that pushes me slightly outside of my comfort zone. I will tell you more about that later. 
     Until then, here's is another surf video. This one is shorter and shot by my dad, while Scott and I were surfing at sunset on Friday. Don't miss the high five at the beginning. It's our best trick. ha. 



The song is by Gregory Alan Isokov. I listened to one of his songs on repeat once for two hours. He's very great.

  7. LOL, sweet high five!
    I am the same way when too much has been going on. The past 2 weeks I've been in my staying in the house phase.
    You writing about playing cards and drinking wine with your hubs makes me want to play cards and drink wine with Joe.
    We did have a beers at the beach date last week which was awesome.
    Excited to hear about your trip!!!
