Finally, for the first time this season, I made it to the Friday Market in New Denver. Got some wonderful lettuce and carrots. And I got strawberries. They may be the only ones I get this year and they look rather pale but hey – they’re strawberries and I didn’t have to take out a second mortgage to buy them. Not complaining.
And because Simon took Shanara to work (happy puppy) I took Abby with me to the market. We walked through town, I took photos of beautiful growing things, and Abby made to new dog friends. This is, of course, her favourite thing.
And then, back home after lunch I lay down for a short nap and slept for an hour and a half. Woke up groggy. How I know that I am stressed – sleep. My symptoms all show up physically.
I just want every uncertainty to be settled.
Soon that will happen.
And again, I remind myself to just breathe.
