Right after this short break

found by the roadside

Looking at the picture of those suitcases in my last post, made me a bit wistful and I swore I could hear the call of the sea on the breeze. I found myself longing to lounge under a quilt by the fire - in my wholesome shack near the water's edge, whilst looking out of the picture window at the tumbling ocean. Oh my friends, it was a powerful longing indeed.

So, I packed my travel case and rolled down the road to the coast. To breathe in the briny air and be lulled to sleep by the waves. I must ramble the curly ribbon of highway singing at top volume to the likes of Otis, Irma, and Tanya Tucker. I will think of you.

Ok, that is how I would like you all to think of me while a take a short break. In reality, I will be quite busy trying to make all the ends meet somewhere in the the middle.

Lola needs a time out.

Only for the briefest of moments though, I will be back mid-week next. I have so much to catch you up on, all sorts of clever goings on. In the meanwhile, please take good care of your lovely selves.

Have fun! And why don't I find things like that by the roadside? Although I did find an enamel bowl in a muck heap once.

Aaah, I knew from a comment you left on my Lyme Regis post that the ocean was no longer whispering but had started to shout out loud to you. Have a wonderful time, deep breaths of sea breeze.
Looking forward to hearing about your trip

A Bun,
sadly (I should have made this more clear) the ocean holiday is merely a trip of imagination. I would like you all to think I am enjoying a cozy get away to the coast but, the truth is, I've just so much to do and I must keep away from the temptation of blogland.
Too many fires burning at the moment and I'm hoping it will all work out. So, I'm still home with my nose to the grindstone.
The call of the sea shall have to be ignored a while longer.

Thank you all

Me too. If I don't announce that I'm staying away, I just get lured back... SO IF YOU'RE READING THIS TOO SOON, GET BACK TO REAL LIFE! (Well, that's what I need to be told, anyway - maybe you don't!)

Thanks for popping over to visit. I've joined your followers so I shall enjoy coming over and seeing how you're getting on with the challenge over the coming year. Have a good blogging break.

Get back to work! Get off the internet! But wait - can't you give us a story about the delightful things found by the roadside?

Hugs,
Nancy

did i see lyme regis mentioned... my favorite seaside resort in the world. i was there not long ago and a shop with a home above had my name all over it. i stood and wept in the street for it could never be mine and yet we 'fitted' so well together...

i could 'see' your coastal trip, i could smell the sea and i am quite quite sure you were wearing a lovely vintage headscarf to keep your flowing trendils in a carefully crafted way, just so.

wishing you a few days of loveliness in the real world, and hop back into cyber land when you are good and ready...

sweet wayside treats by the way :)
