A blissfully calm night. Seems we’ll have more difficult weather over the coming days, but we really needed a good night’s sleep and, thankfully, we got it. Reading/hearing the headlines out of Texas right now makes me feel particularly lucky for our relatively mild weather.

This morning’s walk with Frankie provided a good reminder of what we love about being here in Surf City.

Pattie driving to New Bern this afternoon to receive her 2nd vaccine. A little nervous after hearing about some folks’ flu-ish days post-2nd vaccine, but are prepared with tea, honey, Bourbon… Really glad she’ll soon be fully vaccinated, and looking forward to my ‘category’ getting its turn. All in due time.

Onward to prep for today’s teaching, and trying to sneak in a few minutes of writing…and hoping to catch up on some overdue correspondence. Always feeling a bit behind these days, I admit.
