Caption, "After the housecleaner was done working, we got to chatting and sat around for about half an hour just talking." -- Panel 3: Drawing of coming out of Sandbox tree Bakery with my hands in the air and eyes rolled. Caption, "1/13/23 - I went back to sandbox tree bakery, since they said they only have "butter bread" on Friday. This time they told me they only have it after 3:00 on Friday. Sigh. Maybe next week." -- Panel 4: Drawing of me walking through the Statia Fresh Market. Caption, "I walked over to the "Fresh Market" which is a farmer's market. Only 4 tables, nothing I really wanted, but sweet."  -- Panel 5: Drawing of Esther, Aurel, John and I hiking in the pouring rain. Caption, "1/14/23 - Got up early to hike around the volcano with Esther and her friends Aurel and John, but we turned around when it started (and continued) pouring." -- Panel 6: Drawing of Esther, Aurel, John and I on John's porch having tea and coffee. Caption, "So we coffee and tea on John's porch overlooking the island." -- Panel 7: Drawing of me sitting in the field adjacent to the house, headphones in, crying a little. Annie the dog sits nearby. Caption, "A big reason for taking this house-sit job was to process things and reset a bit. I spend an hour each evening with the dogs in the yard, sometimes with music, sometimes with tears. It's been really good for me." -- Panel 8: Drawing of me walking to town. Caption, "Not as much adventuring this week, partially because of it raining every day. But each day I at least walk into town and back, and usually spend the rest of the day working." -- Panel 9: Drawing of me sitting on a tree on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. Caption, "1/17/23 - I walked down from the house to the water again, and found it. I sat and watched the waves roll in and thought of the Oregon coast."
