My Tugboat Man is Gone and I’m Blue

And so it begins…

Tugboat man withdrawals. Cold turkey.

I took him to the airport at 4:30 a.m.

Once again there’s that lonely ride home.

This time he’ll probably be gone for six weeks or so.

I pointed my camera straight up because the sky was so blue, more blue than I’ve seen in a long time. Not a cloud in the sky.

And so hot. August hot. Record-breaking hot. Drinking ice water all day.

And nope, I can’t go with him, in case you were gonna ask. 

Sky blue, SO BLUE — can you believe this is an un-retouched pic I snapped in our backyard? Kind of heart shaped, can you see it? If you tilt your head just a teensy bit to the left, can you see it now?

  1. Oops… Feeling blue.) But it sounds like you know how to do alone pretty successfully. I always think that knowing how to be alone is one of the best things a woman can know…

  2. I can only imagine.Its hard on me to send mine off to work when he has had some time off.It’s been rough here, with all the family taking much of the t few hours mine is off while he is working so much overtime.
    I hope it passes quickly for you.
