I've morphed into a nomad this summer. Perhaps not in the travelling around the world sense, but certainly in the state of mind sense.
I've made few concrete plans and had limited 'have-to' appointments. For the most part I'm just going with the flow, shifting with the tide. And...drum roll...I'm liking it!
Some of the things I've done so far this summer are:
- gone to the Okanagan several times
- had individual grandchildren visits; with more to come
- floated down the Shuswap River on what can only be described as a raft that would rival the Star trek Enterprise
|Star trek 3|
- been on four BC ferries
- travelled to Powell River for a wedding
- travelled through Comox, Courtenay, Parksville and Nanaimo
- sat proudly listening through my reverend's first sermon since we've been married; more to come
- visited Kamloops
- thrown rocks into the Fraser River
- visited with many good friends
- experienced and really liked some new-to-me drinks and appies
- planted and am watching my first tomato plant grow
|Growing in a pot on my deck.|
- had breakfasts, lunches and dinners with my family; at home and at some fun new restaurants
- read to my hearts content
This blog was never intended to be a 'report' of my daily doings, but it seems to have moved on its own in that direction. I am loving the freedom of a summer of no plans. For a bit of a control crazed woman, this has been a surprise. Being me; fear seems to creep up on joy, and with the delight of summer freedom, comes the fear that I will not want to return to work in September. Hmm, it's only August 5th, I think I'll worry about that tomorrow.
