Enjoying the day

I woke up to another beautiful day here along the beach.  I sat outside this morning enjoying a hot cup of tea.  I haven’t been able to do this for some time.  There was still a bit of campfire cent from the previous night. 


Hubby isn’t feeling well today.  Around 10.30 AM  I decided to take Lexi on a morning stroll along the bay.  I took pictures of it yesterday.  On our walk this morning the tide was rising and we found several star fish that were washed up and pretty fresh.  I didn’t know Star fish were so fragile.  I put them in a bag i took along for Lexi for that just in case business.  I hate to admit it, but out of 5 of them only one didn’t break.


Before i left on our walk I put some meat in the crock pot to stew for dinner and after lunch i went down to the beach for a little stroll.  I didn’t stay long as hubby still isn’t feeling the good and i didn’t want to be gone too long.


Hubby spent most of his day in bed so I spent my afternoon sitting outside basking in the sun.  The campground has several campers and lots of kids are here enjoying a winter break.  I finished a book I had been reading.  Lexi loves being outside with me.  The other dogs prefer being inside.


Later in the afternoon I put some gravy mix, carrots and potatoes in the crock pot to cook with the meat.  This makes like a stew and instead of it being beef .. it’s pork stew .. very tasty.  As you can see we have lot’s left for left over’s.  Between the left over bean soup and the stew i will not have to cook for a few days :)


I sat outside until almost dark and then i came in and dinner was finished cooking.  I went for a evening stroll after dark.  It’s a nice comfy night and since i feel better i thought i would enjoy some more outdoors.  I enjoy taking a stroll at night and looking at the stars.  Several campers have fires going.  I was invited to join several but i passed as hubby still isn’t feeling good. 


After my night stroll i decided to fix hubby a treat and made some home made brownies for him.  I haven’t made them for a long time.

I am happy to report that my back is feeling better today.  The warmth and sunshine is a good medication for me.  Hubby still tonight isn’t feeling good.  Not sure what will be on the list tomorrow.
