And not just a good Sunday – a terrific one. Oh sure, it was all pretty routine: farmer’s market, walking with Abby, gardening, napping – but sometimes, all these familiar, everyday things are not only comforting, but enormously enjoyable.
And so they were.
Tomorrow, I have another big hike planned: something steep – something to get my heart rate going (I hope), something that is challenging on the way down. But I am so very much looking forward to it. I spent a considerable amount of time today reading all the advice I could find about taking care of my Meindl boots, given they got so very wet. Nice to know I am doing everything right and that getting them soaking wet didn’t damage them. BUT (big but here) I am going to regularly carry gaiters with me from now on. We live in the Pacific Northwest – it just makes sense.
