Despite the fact that I overslept this morning, I still had a heavenly day. I hope this doesn’t sound selfish, but sometimes at the end of my day when I know I’ll be home soon, I look forward to the fact that the only responsibility I have is for my pets. I miss my husband every day, and I see him everywhere on this property – the way he used to walk with his hiking poles, fixing fence when he was well, all the memories I have of our life here. But lately, I am feeling the lightness of just being. And of getting into my own kind of normal. And I am finding that I actually like it.
I can do this.
It is growing dark as I near home, and I hardly have time to rush upstairs and change out of my work clothes and into my walking clothes before it gets too dark to walk the perimeter of the property. In the dark, those thick tree roots threaten to trip me up and it’s less dangerous walking in the center.
Today when I let him out, George took off for the southeast corner of the property. He seemed excited as he sniffed around and trotted about down there. I left him there for a little bit to go back inside for my camera and then called him to come.
Here he comes.
He is a good boy.
The cat is outside with us too and she’s heading for the yard where George is now waiting for me with his frisbee.
The sky had such a beautiful glow.
And we played frisbee against this dramatic backdrop.
And it was heavenly.
He looks weird here but I’m adding it to the post regardless.
I like the leaves.
And I like this tune.
Until tomorrow, then ~
