I still have fingers and toes crossed that we will have some by the end of the day. You honestly don’t know how precious this is until you don’t have it. I feel dirty and stinky – and the sinks are dirty – everything is just not clean. Oh sure, we’re making do and if we don’t get things running soon, we’ll get more buckets and heat water up and have sponge baths. And tomorrow I will have to go into town to do laundry at the laundromat.
However, Simon also just came back from the reservoir where he says he is making some progress with the Liqui-Fire. Apparently the progress is slow, but something is happening.
Back to crossing my fingers and toes – and may as well cross my eyes for good measure.
This morning we drove back to Nakusp to pick up four more bottles of Liqui-Fire. Hell, at this rate, we may run through all four by the end of the day.
Meanwhile, back to “making the best of things.” I am editing and writing and submitting. Working at what I do. Also, daydreaming about what the future may hold. The possibilities are wide-ranging.
I am creating a bit of clarity about what I want for my future: a home that is as serene and beautiful and carefree as the one I had in Cedar for sixteen years – but different because this needs to be a home for a family – not just me. And I want adventures and experiences like the ones I have had in Europe and the ones I have shared with Simon – especially the ones I shared with Simon this past summer and every time we have been out together hiking or snowshoeing or sleeping in a tent. From the very first time we hiked together on the Westwood Ridges in the late summer of 2015, he has been my favourite hiking buddy and my best adventure-mate.
Lots more of that please.
