About a quarter of the way up the road (road – sigh) the snow began and it got progressively deeper. It took us about three hours to get to the top – elevation gain of about 800 metres. And no, we were not wearing snowshoes and I did not have snow baskets on my poles. Fun!
And yes, it was a fine day. It wasn’t a day of beauty and wonder. It was a road and a slog uphill. But we got out, we had good conversations and I discovered one more new place in my neighbourhood. The more I discover, the more I know where I want to go as well as the places that don’t interest me.
Simon has been crazy busy. The downstairs bathroom is almost done – ready for me to scrub and clean tomorrow. As a matter of fact, it really is done. I think Simon has one or two more details to sort out. And he’s been working on everything including the political campaign for the Greens. I don’t envy him.
Best news of the day: I heard from my old publisher, Rodger Touchie at Heritage Group who asked me to send my book proposal etc. to the editor in charge of Rocky Mountain Books. One more step. That’s great.
