This is Day 432 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve. Deb and I are well, thanks.
It was another ordinarily perfect day, despite being perfectly ordinary — a day that reminds us that living the life we’ve chosen can be rewarding, even if we’re occupied with the mundane. There’s always work to be done, no matter where we are, as well as moments to be savored.
Chores got done. I repaired a closet door and checked the house batteries (again), topping off the electrolyte. Deb did a few loads of laundry and hung a set of string lights. We tapped our under-bed storage for supplies one last time before leaving here. (The new gas props I installed made that a lot easier than it was before.)
Deb’s cousin came over for a visit. We walked the park a few times, engaging with some fascinating people. One of our hosts, the young woman who checked us in ten days ago, stopped by our site to tell us how much they’ve enjoyed having us here.
We ate ice cream. We built a fire tonight, perhaps our best one yet, burning the last of our firewood.
Boring? You’re kidding, right?
Take care of yourselves, Patriots. Stay calm. Stay sharp. Stay free.
