The List

What is it with me and lists?

Whatever it is, I like it and I am not about to change it. First – if I write it down I don’t have to think about it and god knows I have enough crap floating around my head that I don’t also need to consider “Buy more peaches.”

And then, once it’s down, I know I will do it. I am weirdly meticulous that way. It’s like a promise I make to myself and I won’t break a vow I have made to me. Doing what I say I will do increases my trust in myself and for me, that’s a big deal.

And then, there is something wonderfully satisfying about ending the day with everything ticked off (not being ticked off).

So, what I’m getting at is that everything is ticked off and I have made a new and very short list for tomorrow. I can now put my feet up.


My thoughts are heavily on backpacking. I think, looking ahead, that Pat and I will probably just head out on Sunday even if the mountain weather forecast is not perfect. It appears to be improving so – what the heck. Let’s go for it. That seems to be our prevailing thought.

In the meantime, Crest awaits on Thursday, the only good day this week – at least in the mountains.
