Months of Plenty
There was plenty of summer left after we returned home!
Set up garden beds, built deer & rabbit fencing, mulched and composted, built ADK bridges over the inlet and outlet streams, and a zillion other little things:
Did some work inside the house, too:
But there was still plenty of time for wildflowers and hammocks, climbing trees and weeknight campfires:
Birthday parties and goat roasts:
Went back to work, fully embracing the fact that I really, truly, absolutely am not an indoor cat:
And to top it all off, a sport climbing "herd" trip that didn't get rained out:
The first few leaves in the back woods are turning yellow. There is a hickory directly across from my window; I can't wait for it to turn brilliant. It will. I know it will! First autumn in our home. Still finding all of the new things.
By all standards, this was an epic summer. And for the first time in long time, there's nothing big on the horizon. No Peru, no New Zealand, no trip around the world, no homelessness, no career change, no Nicaragua, no wedding, no home buying, no road tripping.
Just wildflowers and gardens, campfires and hammocks, birthday parties with funny hats and virtual candles, goats on fire, and the happy hum of my treadmill.
And slip n' slides. Definitely slip n' slides.
(Come find me, adventures!)
