Its a night of calm still heat, even at 10.45. DH and I took glasses of chilled Chardonney to the pool; soaked up the star studded night sky; watched the sheet lightning that, surprisingly, was splashing across the dark mountains; lolled deliciously in the night warmth of the pool and toasted the Lord who gives us such a great life. It one of those times that I know I will always remember: a bubble of beauty and quiet enjoyment of simple things. Sharpened, perhaps, because there has been sadness in the family. And because our loved house now has a "For Sale" notice planted outside the front gate. Our time here may end any time - a month, a year? Who knows? But tonight, we toasted the joy and the beauty we have known in this home that perches on the mountainside, overlooking one of the most beautiful bays imaginable.
