From A Distance

When I look back in a week, month or even a year from now, I am going to treasure these days when the highlight of my day was another beautiful sunset.

I can't remember the last time I was this sick, and needed to sleep and sleep and sleep. Last night was another 12 hour night for me, and today has been another day on the couch. But I think finally this evening the antibiotic has started to work as my throat is feeling less like it has knives in it. 😣

Being sick hasn't stopped me from working on my beloved JV Prayer Room project, so today has been a day with the computer propped up in my lap as I've laid here praying, and working on it.

Through the window I watched the day pass by, windier and colder than yesterday.

The forecast says we're heading towards a big storm that will produce some huge waves in the sea. I hope I feel better by Monday so I can go down to the harbor to watch them crash!

The farthest I went today was just off our porch this afternoon to capture the sunset. And these.

I've never noticed them before, but thought they were so beautiful. I had a feeling what they were so came inside to do a Google search, and sure enough...they're juniper berries.

Having no idea what they're good for, I read up on them, finding there are many uses. But...if you don't have the right kind, they can be poisonous! So to be on the safe side, I'll just leave them on their branches and enjoy them from a distance.

And that seems to be the theme for these days on Hvar. Enjoy it from a distance. Which I am!
