Forecasting a Beautiful Sunday

in #beautifulsunday8 months ago (edited)



Today is brought to you by #BeautifulSunday by @Ace108 where you show off how you spend your day and also #SublimeSunday by @c0ff33a where any random post will do. You know I have to have my coffee, every day. No bartering or begging, please. Just serve it on up!

Cast your shadow and keep company with the shine of the day.

Today is my last day of vacation, a sad day indeed, although I have been very fortunate to be able to go for so long. It has been forever and a day, but I would happily jump back on for another leg in the journey. It has been thrilling, inspiring, thought-provoking and always interesting. All the ingredients to stimulate my brain. I can hardly wait to do it again.

It has truly been a gastronomic experience on this day, every day, in fact. Every meal is three courses, plated in the most delectable way, sending delightful messages to my brain. Have I told you how much I love to sample specialty dishes from around the world?

To bask in the glow of the perfect evening, being seated at the window, to share the setting of the sun. Perfection is so underrated.

And the courses keep coming, as the conversation becomes deeper, creating a circle of intimacy. You, me, and the world around us. We share our friendship, companions of the surrounding love. I raise my glass to you, my friends. For you are what make me come back to this place and share in your writings, your pictures, your life.

The Mediterranean style of the ship is reflected in their food. I can honestly say that it makes me smile to take a break from being the chief cook and bottlewasher. To be waited on and all of my needs tended to. Am I capable of doing this? Yes. But, my grateful heart is in love with it.

And, of course, we must have a flower, always...to color my world. I dedicate this picture to #SundayPurple for the #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra. Nobody colors like she does.

Nothing sparkles like love and laughter, except perhaps, a bit of champagne. I encourage you to try it on; the transformation is magically delicious, wrapping us up in its charm.

And just like that, these musings are done. I want to thank @ace108 and @c0ff33a for hosting these challenges and just so you know, while there has been a bit of tanning going on, I can guarantee that there is still a little sunshine left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day! And yes! I have missed you and you and especially you!

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Haha! That is true!! I knew I would, one of the reasons I am taking Amtrak back home from Miami.

What a difference they have made on these trains.

Thanks for the beer!

I would love to do a long trip around the country on the train, I would love it but Lulu isnt up or keen on the idea LOL

Technically speaking, isn’t being home just a Vacation between your trips away? But then who doesn’t love having delicious foods cooked for them every day. And you have done well - excellent photos I normally have just finished shovelling a meal in when I think I should have taken a photo of that!

Anyway - on the plus side when you get home for your post vacation rest - you will have a little
Time to plan the next one !COFFEEA

The food on The MERIVIGLIA is soooo good the chef is a master! And the sunset I tire is gorgeous

They do have some amazing chef's on board. I have found most of the different lines do in their dining room. It makes the experience so wonderful.

Another line that I love is Celebrity.

But, I can honestly say I have never been on a bad cruise. :) What is not to love, right?

It is always so depressing when a wonderfully long holiday ends - but like you say... you always come back feeling so replenished!!! and besides... we are all happy to have you back!! Have missed your bubbly presence xxx

Oh, I lied! I want to go back! ;)

It is nice to be almost back and as I make my way home (it was one of those trips that start in New York City and ends in Miami, so far away they have different weather zones. But, it was an amazing way to do it and I got so much more out of my holiday doing that.

It warms my heart to hear that I was missed, if only a little bit. xoxo

!tip

Oh, I lied! I want to go back! ;)

Hahaha I don't blame you!

And yes, you were! More than a little! Takes a lot to replace such a bubbly personality my dear xxxxx Enjoy the last leg of it all!

That first photo of yours is just amazing..
Is that poached eggs or some sort of cheese on the salad?
Whatever it is, it looks amazing !!

Happy, happy that you had such a wonderful and replenishing-for-the-soul time !!
Happy, Happy to see you again too, all the FancyKingdom is rejoycing to meet you back my sweet and joyful Denise !
This is indeed a xffoly.png ! ^_^

beautiful memories, wonderful happenings in life. The view from the window watching the horizon, the delicious food which is so expensive I think. The flower also is so amazing, it's colours is so dark that it's hard to fade. The most interesting of them all is the champagne, no...actually the colour of that nails while holding the glass, it's very pretty and sexy
😍🤗😉

I'm so happy you could take such a sumptuous vacay. May it color all your days to come.

Great to see you are back in the saddle. This place was pretty dead without your smiling photo and comments!
