Today was completely unscripted. First, I woke up too early. I have to start recognizing the difference between the number 5 and 6 on my iPad – so that I stop getting up at 5 thinking it’s 6.
Despite that, or possibly because of that, I decided it would be a good day to drive to Nelson to buy more socks. True – a girl can never have enough socks in the sock rotation drawer.
Simon begged to come along (how could I say no?) and then of course we had to bring the girls and off we went at about 8.30. We stopped on the rail trail to walk the girls and discovered, to our delight, a fabulous riparian area with monster skunk cabbage and all sort of awesome flowers as well as a zillion songbirds.
Then off to Nelson where we walked up and down Baker Street, popping into shops just for the heck of it. What I’m saying is that we were kind of acting like normal people – maybe even tourists. So we bought a few things (socks), picked up dog food and headed back. Had a nice outdoor lunch at Sleep if for Sissies – nice because the dogs could join us outside and the food is good.
We had a day of treating ourselves.
And then back home where I picked another monster bowl of lettuces, spinach, radishes and pac choy as well as a handful of chives for our dinner tonight.
Tomorrow – Idaho Peak.
