I'm back

I haven't written in awhile.
Sometimes when something so big happens, I find it difficult to match mere words to big feelings. I don't mean to be cryptic or isolated readers who know not of what I speak, but I think this time around, I have to just move on without dissecting things through written word. Besides, it is so much bigger than myself, and another woman has a great big hill to climb without considering other people's reactions.
But we're OK, at least in my household.

My mum just left after a week-long visit and I had a blast playing tourist with her and my sister, who is staying here until we fly back to Ottawa in August. It as been a welcome distraction and transition as I took pause to reevaluate what's important, who's a good friend, and where to go from here.

Today finds me sun-kissed after a lunchtime picnic at Long Lake where my sister and I donned our wet suits (yes, this makes us weenies) and swam in the frigid water. Abby just strolled right in after us, shocked by the cold but never shedding a tear. That's my little water baby, just like her mama.
My garage is moving towards organized after we sold our second set of appliances. List of summer to-do's are getting checked off as calendar days fly by.
Bread is rising in my kitchen, because it is so much cheaper and more tasty.
Thanks for today.

  1. I'm pretty sure I know who and what you're talking about and I've been thinking about her a lot. It really makes me remember to appreciate what I have today, because who knows what can happen tomorrow.
