Our timing today was perfect. Abby and I headed out to the Awesome Trail after lunch and finished the short hike about two minutes before the rains came down.
Not so great timing for the garden though. I only managed to get the raspberries weeded. The tomato patch will probably have to wait until tomorrow. By then the horsetail should be a mile high. Yes – it does grow that fast.
Other exciting news for the day: I met a young couple at the Awesome Trailhead – they’ve been travelling North America in their camper van for a year already and are still not nearly done on their journey. Lovely people. Gave them some hiking tips.
In other news – I find myself caught up a lot in semi-political debates. Finding I am willing to listen to points of view I may not have considered, Willing to change my mind. Standing firm on points I will not concede – like not giving one bit of credence to Jordan Peterson (!) – glad that I won’t back down. I am done with catering to white male privilege – to not hurting their fragile egos.
Come to think of it, I probably haven’t gone far enough yet.
