Better. Really – much better. I took Abby to Cable Bay – small knee twinges but so much better. Tomorrow, I take the bandaids off – let the air get at it and let it complete its healing. Even my back is so much better. I expect to be 100% in a couple of days (or as close to 100% as I ever get. Ha!)
Rain last night and this morning. We did the back 40 in rain and it felt rather lovely. Blackberries taste so sweet they may as well be jam. The market – such an abundance of fresh produce. I have pounds and pounds of beans and potatoes and broccoli and lettuce and onions and tomatoes and and and – enough for a week of amazing meals.
The long range forecast – we are shooting for Augerpoint for Tuesday Aug. 20. That should be good. Very excited about this. And then Flower Ridge and Central Crags shortly after that. If the weather is good for September, I have other items on my list: Burman Ridge for instance. And Maybe Frink and and and….
I am noticing so much these days about my feelings – and glad of it. I notice how my chest hurts in the mornings and how I can breathe deeply into it and how I can feel my feelings and not be overwhelmed by them.
I feel like a whole human being: there is no part of myself that I have to shut down or ignore or overcome. If I am a mess of emotions, then that’s what I will embrace.
And the light.
