Honestly – when I’m not hiking these days, I feel like I am playing catchup – constantly. There’s just so damn much to do!
For instance – today: I created a new strawberry bed and planted the young ones I’ve been nursing along. Then I sowed spinach, lettuce and radishes in the potato patch I cleared yesterday. Then all the watering and tons of weeding and more harvesting.
And grocery shopping and recycling and a dozen small domestic chores include baking hiking cookies – whew.
I love it. I love this life.
But still – whew!
I also love how our relationship here is growing and changing and evolving. Simon and I have our bumps – but every day I see those as the little things couples go through. Nothing major. We have love. We deal with what comes up. We grow stronger.
Life is good.
And tomorrow, I am hiking!
