Thurs­day

Well, it’s the lull be­tween hol­i­days. Those glow­ing or­ange jack-o’-lantern lights have come down, but it’s only a mat­ter of weeks (days?) be­fore the place sparkles red and green.

Fri­day

Threw some left­over Hal­loween But­terfin­gers into my bag. Mis­take. Left it in the sun and got re­warded with a gooey mess. Serves me right.

Tues­day

Rain in the fore­cast. May be a good movie day. I hear the new one about Fred­die Mer­cury is fab. And can check out progress on the Bell Tower re­make.

Satur­day

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than tast­ing some mer­lot in the man­groves. Thanks, SCCF, for your imag­i­na­tive Wines in the Wild event.

Sun­day

Met G and F in Venice for the Chalk Fes­ti­val. You would not be­lieve the pave­ment art there, es­pe­cially the 3-D mega­lodon that seems to come right out of the street!

Wed­nes­day

The “girls” de­cided to take a mid­week boat­ing ex­cur­sion to Pine Is­land. It was Shrimp Day— jumbo peel ’n’ eats, 60 cents apiece!

Satur­day

Hang­ing out in one of the easy chairs at Sani­bel’s “reimag­ined” li­brary, pe­rus­ing some books I’ve been mean­ing to pick up. What a plea­sure.

Sun­day

Lazy week­end. Why not? Cof­fee and cross­word on lanai this morn­ing. May pull out some dec­o­ra­tions later. The hol­i­days in­evitably ap­proach.

Tues­day

Think­ing of some­thing trop­i­cal for Thanks­giv­ing this year. Scal­lops? Mango chut­ney? Oh, and Key lime pie? It doesn’t al­ways have to be turkey and dress­ing and pump­kin, does it?

Fri­day

Sun­set dol­phin cruise on the agenda. What a great way to de­com­press from fam­ily fes­tiv­i­ties. Beats the Black Fri­day mad­house.

Satur­day

Deck the boats with boughs of holly. Matan­zas Pass is the place to see and be seen in your dec­o­rated dinghy.

Mon­day

For­get on­line shop­ping. Down­town Fort My­ers has some unique bou­tiques where hol­i­day shop­ping is an event! With ac­tual hu­mans!

Fri­day

My neigh­bors have hung glit­tery snowflakes from their gumbo limbo. Really? Who are you fool­ing? It’s 85 de­grees.

Sun­day

A rest­ful day be­fore the on­slaught. North­ern fam­ily has de­cided to es­cape the icy De­cem­ber rains and ex­pe­ri­ence Christ­mas in South­west Florida. Joy!

Mon­day

Those blow-up Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions have got to go. Frosty al­ways looks ane­mic and Ru­dolph may be drunk. Who thought those were a good idea?

Thurs­day

Ten­nis to­day was re­fresh­ing. The mer­cury slid down­ward for the first time in a while. Nice to start off with a jacket. Our North­ern vis­i­tors saw no need for ex­tra lay­ers, though.

Mon­day

The year is wind­ing down. I think a walk on the beach is in or­der. Let’s toast the sun­set and move on to 2019.
