And, it's all really the tip of the iceberg.
For my birthday, my bud Lis got me the BEST Scrabble board ever created. We got to playing Scrab a ton this past year or so - started it in Indo at Alila with an few early afternoon old fashioned's and a long drawn out game before dinner...and it continued to dominate our days once we were back from Bali. She had this board handmade (even the letters) and somehow, magically all the colors really brought together the little living room of the Flo. It swivels and literally makes my day every time I see it (thinkin' about word ass-whoopin', I suppose).
Then, a random stranger who had read the LA Times article on the Flo dropped off a really sweet present - the artilces pix were fixed up nice in a lovely frame and delivered to me. Who does that? He was just delighted with the FLO and I def owe him a nice tour!
Best of all, in my quest to find a perfect little office, I found that my sailboat, Enola, works like a charm. Its right next to Flo - perfect for Minka walks, drink replenishes, stirring the soup as needed and just generally a super fly set up to edit and write in. Who needs 4 walls when you've got the Pacific?
And, I cannot wait to get home to do a mega rearrange on the Flo. Gonna make the bedroom the great room for the SO CAL winter and my friends Nando and Bessie already did the flip for me (what would I do without them?). Now, I gotta get home and mystify it...I love CHANGE!!! I will def post pixs of all the little updates I'm planning for the winter and spring. Dang, a whole new crop of plants are needed, as are new subscriptions, new idea boards, and just a mega life refresh. 'Sall good...
