Well, at our summit meeting last night, we made a few decisions – simple ones – like about life and death and the whole damn thing.

And it was time. Uncertainty is an energy sapper. We have decided not to set a deadline for selling the house and moving back to the island – or anywhere else for that matter. We’re going to give this place more of a chance.

At least, I should say that I’m going to give it a chance. Simon fell in love with it from the start and has now got a summer part-time job and has also embraced the entire community. He really, really likes it here. Me? I’m warming to it and staying is the most logical thing we can do.

The upside to this (for me) is that I am making amazing friends in the hiking community and, in truth, KMC is an unbeatable club. I’m also contributing a lot to the newsletter and have promised to start leading hikes (and snowshoe trips) as I become more familiar with the territory.

I have also made local friends – in fact, we’re going to dinner tomorrow night at Sheila’s house. I also see the possibility of a garden.

But MOST importantly, Simon has allowed me (allowed?) to make the very, very, very (3 verys) big decision of the light fixture on the ceiling beam of our bedroom. Hehehe. Little does he know….

Things I am currently pleased about and looking forward to:

Baking bread today (underway)

Baking bread tomorrow and bringing a loaf of my sourdough to Sheila’s place.

Meeting more cool people.

Strenuous snowshoe trip up Mount Payne on Friday with Ben and Francis – crazy hikers – hoping they don’t kill me.

Hiking trip – yes real hiking, not snowshoeing – to Pilot Point on Saturday.

Snowshoeing trip on Red Mountain next Wednesday.

More writing – I am really enjoying writing my hiking book.

And last – but most importantly – getting mildly giddily drunk on cheap champagne tonight. Maybe even a game of drunken Scrabble?

Yep – it’s pretty good. Life, that is.

    I have really enjoyed reading your blog. I am experimenting with sourdough, searching for recipes, would you share yours with me?
