Thurs­day

Could it be? A nip in the air. Hard to re­mem­ber the last time I had to dig down in my closet for a sweater.

Friday

Turns out that nip in the air was a pass­ing fancy. Too soon to break out the hot cho­co­late.

Wed­nes­day

Hard to be­lieve SCCF is cel­e­brat­ing its 50th an­niver­sary. That was an amaz­ing group who saw the fu­ture and took steps to save the is­land so many years ago.

Sun­day

Mouth is wa­ter­ing this af­ter­noon. It’s Taste of the Is­lands time!

Tues­day

Er­rands in the big city to­day. Best get them done be­fore all the snow­birds come in for a land­ing. More ar­riv­ing ev­ery day.

Thurs­day

Walk­ing along the beach, head down, mind­ing my own busi­ness this evening, when I walked right into a gi­ant sand sculp­ture of an oc­to­pus. Some­one’s prac­tic­ing for the up­com­ing con­test on Fort My­ers Beach.

Sun­day

OK, eat­ing light this month, think­ing ahead to Thanks­giv­ing. Gotta have turkey, but how about some trop­i­cal sides. We did freeze some mango slices last sum­mer. Salsa, any­one?

Thurs­day

Ten­nis match to­day with M. Had to re­mind my­self to stay in good cheer af­ter my fore­hand went astray. Must be my rac­quet—hint, hint ...

Satur­day

J and M in­sisted on a boat­ing ex­cur­sion to­day. Across the bay for a lit­tle lunch on Pine Is­land. Who am I to re­sist?

Thurs­day

Still a few scars left on the is­land from Irma, but we sure have a lot of bless­ings to count af­ter this hur­ri­cane sea­son.

Friday

So much to choose from for hol­i­day entertainment this com­ing sea­son, and we don’t have to go far—car­ols at Chapel by the Sea, hol­i­day con­cert at BIG ARTS, golf­cart pa­rade on Cap­tiva … the list goes on.

Mon­day

Time to de­com­press from a crazy busy week­end. What could be bet­ter than a yoga ses­sion on the beach? Meet­ing E for a lit­tle down­ward dog at sun­set.

Thurs­day

Oh my gosh, the is­land is busy. I’m opt­ing to stay home and re­pot all my or­chids. They de­serve it af­ter weath­er­ing this crazy storm sea­son.

Friday

Passed a woman on the bike path to­day with the big­gest smile on her face. Hap­pi­ness is con­ta­gious. Oh, and she was wear­ing rein­deer antlers.

Sun­day

Is it pos­si­ble that 2018 is almost here? Of course, the best place to start the new year is—where else?— on the beach with a fluffy blan­ket, a lit­tle Cham­pagne and the ones you love.
