I'm back!

Hello, everybody!!!!

After one week relaxing under the Araruama's gorgeous sun, I'm back to Petropolis. I almost stayed home, but it wouldn't help me, so there I went with mom. No regrets! We had awesome sunny days, our cousin was a perfect hostess and we had a wonderful time together.

New Year's night was great at a friend's house (above you see our little group of friends & family, pity the photo got kinda blurry), where we had a yummy super, while laughing and enjoing each other's company. At midnight (have you guys seen the gorgeous Blue Moon?? I silently said a prayer to the Goddess, thanking for the closing year, and asking strenght for the new one), we went to the main lagoon to watch the fireworks. It rained minutes later, and, as it was so hot, no umbrellas were needed. The first rain was good to wash away all the 2009 bad energy from my body and soul.

I basically spent time sunbathing, getting a cool tan, reading, and talking with friends - it's been ages since I could do this! I love lazily feeling the sun on my skin, so you can imagine how good these days were.

In the afternoons, I used to take long walks along the lagoon, until the Kite Surf Bar where people gather to ... kite surf, of course, LOL I'd sit there with a book and watched them surfing in between pages ( I took Lois Bourne's Dancing with Witches for a re-read and Rosemund Pilcher's Voices in Summer my mother gave me).

While there, OF COURSE, I called Rodrigo a couple times to know how Lucas was going, and to hear my little witch's voice. He wasn't eating well these first days, and my heart was heavy with aprehension, but thank the gods, now everything is okay, and he's enjoying his vacations, only asking his dad once to call, because was missing me. I never thought this would be so hard to get used to, and I don't think I'd cope with it well if I was at home. In Araruama I had people to talk to about anyhting, had the beautiful place to distract me, so days were easy.

Summoning up, a Summer week to remember! I returned yesterday, because even feeling so at home at Celia's (our cousin), I really don't like outstaying one's welcome. Here in Petropolis I met the weather cloudy but warm. Now I'll work on my Etsy stuff, errands, and whatever I have to do, so I can wait Lucas to come back home. We should get a handbook to teach us how to deal with this hole in the heart. But I'm recharged, feeling well, lighting my candles and having loooong talks to the gods. What an anxious mother I became...

I hope you all had a perfect New Year's night as well, may 2010 be wonderful for all of us! Thank you (again!!!) for all the positive words and good vibes sent, it's a true blessing to have such sweet friends.

Hi Nydia, great to see you back. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time away - you needed a pleasant break.
You're doing so well while Lucas is away, and so is he. It's not easy, but it's working out OK, and just think of the happiness when he gets home!

You deserved a great vacation Nydia, you've been through a LOT and it's about time you were able to enjoy yourself a bit.
I know what it's like to be a worried & anxious mom, and I think you are doing great! Lucas will be fine and back with you before you know it.
In the meantime, blog it out with us!

What a great little vacation for you! Sounds like it was very revitalizing.

And I'm sure it helped to slightly distract you from missing your little witch.

Much love and happy 2010!

Hello Nydia~

Your vacation sounded like just the remedy you needed! And your photos are gorgeous! I'm happy to hear you are feeling much better.

And from the above post- it sounds like you are enjoying your free time at home as well.

(Isn't it strange to be out and about with friends enjoying the nightlife, after being a Home-Bound Mommy for so long? Even when we do get out with our little ones- nothing compares to a big girl's nite out kidless!)

Keep enjoying yourself,taking time just for you, your spirit, your art& your family- and your time with your sweet brother- aren't they the best? It was my brother who gave me my Lap Top in '08 and made it possible for me to even be online! So we have him to thank for all of my endless blogging & jabberjawing! LOL)

Take Care Sweet Lady!

PS~ So glad that my email to you was well received-I was uber hesitant. But I will be sending a return one shortly- I just haven't had the time to get my thoughts down yet with the kiddos back in school. Its funny, you'd think I'd have MORE free tme- not less! Oh well, such is life!
