Learning Everyday...

The wise man should be prepared for everything that does not lie within his control.


Ah yes, there is a lesson to be learned in this! Our ferry was in dry dock for 2 weeks (this makes it 5 weeks + in 12 months) and life stood still! 
There is something unique in the quietness which descends on this tiny island when we have no access to the outside world but for the Internet/phone.

Due to circumstances beyond our control (mainly power outage) we have been on a 'reduced diet' as I call it: everything that can go in the pot will do! 
And just when we are getting used to it, our ferry is due to reappears freshly painted and ready for sailing later this afternoon.

Alleluia! A Pizza sounds delicious at this time...

And now at 1527 hours...

It never pays to get too excited...An hour out of the shipyard our ferry broke down...Sigh...
Best case scenario is a sailing scheduled tomorrow for all those who are still marooned...

On a final note, I just wanted to explain why you have not seen me more regularly on Blog. 
Wishing each and everyone a splendid week,


  1. Ah the joys and unique problems of island life! There are times it does seem like a paradise--well except for the whole not having pizza thing!Hope your best case scenario is a reality tomorrow:)
    Blessings, Aimee

    1. Ah well Aimee, it took a couple of tries and a very long wait in the ferry line but we made it on Tuesday 30.
      P.S. I brought a pizza back with me!
      God bless,

  2. Oh no, your power went out, Noelle! I guess there is some good and bad to that, isn't there? It gives you time to focus and appreciate all the conveniences you had before, but then again, it can be so frustrating and lonely being stranded somewhere without power. It was good seeing your comment today, my friend. You have been missed.


    1. Thanks Sheri! I needed a lift today and you just gave it.
      Blessings to you and the girls,


I love to share dreams and always enjoy meeting kindred spirits!
Thank you for stopping by!
