We could not have asked for more beautiful weather here in SE Georgia this weekend....sunny, clear blue sky, low 70's....all I needed to pull out the rolled up jeans, gauzy shirt over a tank top and FLIP FLOPS! And you know where I headed....straight to the beach with one of the novels I had picked up last summer that I never got around to reading.
I have been a fan of Nancy Thayer's books for quiet some time. She writes about the mysteries and romance of families and relationships....everything from marriage and friendships, divorce and love, independence and connections. So last summer I picked up "moon shell beach" and "Summer House" with the intentions of reading them while I was recovering from surgery and de-stressing to help heal the ulcers.
For the past 8 months I thought I was de-stressing allowing my back and the pesty stomach ulcers time to heal....I found out a few weeks ago, be ready....because they will flair up just when you think you have everything under control. This time I was told, you either remove stress, responsiblities and obligations OR I will be seeing you in the hospital again. If you have ever had any kind of stomach ulcer, then you know what it feels like to double over with excruciating pain, drink Mylanta from the bottle and eat Tums as if they were candy....all the while you are on prescribed meds.
So with book in hand and a bottle of green tea, yes I actually drink green tea I headed over to the beach for a few hours. It is amazing what a good book, sunshine, a breeze, sand and the salted air can do for the body. I came home feeling like I could conquer the world or atleast my own destiny!
Off to fluff my wind blown hair....as we are headed to Pier Village on St. Simons Island to eat at Brogan's!
