Last Day in Paradise: Conversations with Eileen and Slice of Life Tuesdays

Morning Eileen and Slicers,
I’m up early as usual to enjoy the fresh morning here on the Rivera Cancun at a very Excellent hotel. It’s the last full day and the only day that I’m actually writing something longer than a status update on Facebook.

I have been eating too much, drinking a Mudslide almost every morning at 11:30, just before lunch, I’ve been reading, finishing novels on my Kindle. BTW, I loved Roundhouse by Louise Erdrich, one of my all-time favorite writers and I’m making progress on Barbara Kingsolver’s latest on as well.  Love her too!

Except for the one day we spent one day traveling with a group in a van to Chitzen Itza,  we have been right here, often on this balcony where I’m sitting at the moment hooked to the ocean.



Every night as we prepare for bed, we open the doors, sacrifice air conditioning and sleep with the sounds of the ocean tides in stereo.  We upgraded to the Excellence Club for this week with all the VIP perks it comes with which can be a bit uncomfortable but really all we needed and wanted was this room with a view.

And when the dust settles and the cold of home forces inside, I’ll remember this moment, in my summer pj’s just sitting here, and leisurely writing.

BTW, wireless is everywhere here 🙂

Sounds like Tuvia is up and moving around.  Soon he will be in the enormous shower room that comes with this upgrade.  Hmmm…love that too…

It’s been a wonderful week away and there’s good things back home to return to of course.

Hey, it’s almost March 1st and somehow we will all have something to share on a daily basis.

Back at you on Friday,
