How funny!

Some things are just too funny.  I don’t particularly think that having a migraine headache is funny, but what WAS funny was that when we went on the internet and looked at the weather forecast, it said in big bold headlines:  MIGRAINE HEADACHE.  For the next day it said Migraine Headache possibility.

Kris had had a headache, and for the first time in a very long time, I had one of my migraine headaches.  You might think that’s strange since I don’t have them.  Well, this makes the 5th one I’ve had in my life so it’s no biggy for me.  All that happens is I feel “stranger” than usual and lose my vision in the center and have little stars floating around the outside edge of my vision.

The first time that happened, I had a CAT scan and it came back with nothing — which mother thought was as it should be since she was certain I had nothing in my head anyway!  The doc said it was “just” a migraine!  Okay, thanks doc.  It went away in a couple days.  This time too.

We are in the middle of winter.  Today was such a soft weather day — it was fogg and yet the temp was so soft and nice.  It says it was only 61 but felt like 64 degrees.  We disagree — it felt like 70 degrees.  Here is our weather map for today:

(hint: if you want to know the weather here, just go to AccuWeather.com and put Punta del Este, Uruguay in the search box. I do it all the time for the states.)

But, like I said, it really felt like 68- 70 degrees.  Shirt sleeves were the order of the day.  We love it here.  I’m so grateful that Uruguay ended up being where we live and work.  Very, VERY nice!

Today we simply soaked up the salty air from the viewpoint near our home.  It’s about 3 miles away and allows us sit on top of the world and look at the ocean.  Being born and raised in the Pacific Northwest in the USA, I adore the ocean.  It fills me up with joy and peace and the beauty of it’s power and vastness.  Lots of different feelings.  Today was no different.  Kris and I took photos and loved every minute of our time there.  We try to go to this spot at least a couple of times a week.  Sometimes we watch the dozens of ships that are headed to Buenos Aires or Montevideo ports — either coming or going. I’ll try to get a good photo of that.  They are so far away that they don’t show up well on a photo.  I’m sure it’s possible so I’ll keep trying!

We had some fun with the binoculars even though it was a very foggy day we still got some pretty interesting looks at a few fishing boats in the bay nearby.

Yep that’s me!

By the way, did I tell you that I started another blog as well as this one?  It’s called Live, Work, and Retire in Uruguay.  It’s a different take on things here in Uruguay for those who want more information about living and working here.  Actually, I posted on both today because the beach was so much fun. But usually I’ll spread out the posts and keep them both linked to the photo blog.

Thanks for joining me today!  Leave a comment and let me know you were here!

Abrazos (no not hot coals — hugs)
