After getting suggestions from readers on how to cope with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), I am at a beach house in the Florida Keys for Christmas--here is a picture I took, I was sitting in the beach chair you see but I decided to get some exercise and took a few pictures. Come to think of it, it was probably medically necessary to come to this beautiful island to treat my winter blues, I wonder if insurance will pay. (Just kidding, of course). I have never been to the beach at Christmas and it has been fun so far. The seafood house we just ate at had lobster and fish lights up for Christmas that were very festive and a lot of people were at the local stores getting gifts wrapped. Still, it is hard to imagine Christmas around the corner in 80 degree weather.
I have a bunch of reading that I took with me, including a book sent to me by the Penguin group entitled Sun Kissed, a romance novel they are pitching to women bloggers. You can only imagine how enthusiastic I am to read such a book, given my love for this particular genre. "She asked for nothing...but he would give her everything" reads the inside cover. Apparently, in this romance novel, there is a woman, a horse, an abusive ex-husband and a rugged, yet sensitive Natural man who saves the day. Yep, my kind of reading. My sister-in-law loves horses, and enjoys romance novels so I will pass it on to her. Anyway, back to the sun and ocean. I hope others are having a lovely holiday weekend. I'll be back later!
