Some Notes from the Field.
I decided to stay in Idaho until this Friday, when I will fly back to Alaska. Too much to do and it is important to get my things in order here. This is really my last shot at staying here in this house and having my old “stuff” around me, so I have to take enough time to get things sorted. That’s what this is all about, sorting things out, physical stuff and emotional stuff, processing it as best we can, and moving on to the next adventure down the line. It is also a time of discovery. There are so many photographs and memories in different forms, all saved and neatly tucked away by my Mom, and now for us three kids to look and wonder or marvel at.
I like this place and would like to stay longer. The people here seem friendlier than Anchorage. My sister from Houston says the same thing about that place. I wish I could stay for a season and see the growing season once again and the sites and photograph and blog about it. Maybe someday I will, I don‘t know.
I miss not being online when I want to, especially evenings and early mornings, that‘s when I normally do most of my writing and editing. I have gotten far behind getting around to my friends and I feel that I am stagnant in that way for now. I hope I can catch back up very soon somehow!
Homesick? No, not really. I talk to Carolyn on the phone less than once a day, we know each other so well we are not really apart. Besides, since I got my work done on the bathroom she is doing hers now, tile on the walls, yeah, go Carolyn!!
Of course I asked about Bonnie and Carolyn said she is fine too. Bonnie escaped to the outside world again when Carolyn opened the door, looked around and decided to come back in. Apparently she has been energetic and is lacking or missing a play time buddy, I wonder why? Carolyn says besides bouncing off the walls and doing sprints around the house, Bonnie has been sneaking up on Carolyn and poking her legs with her claws, then running away! Sure sign that little cat misses you know who J
I have been trying to take some photos in between running errands and going back and forth between Nampa and Boise. I did manage to go on a drive out in the countryside the other night. I got on to a series of back roads I didn’t recognize much, maybe just a little from way back, and I got home after an hour extra driving time with the aid of my gps!
I posted some photos in a new album. It is a challenge doing photos without my computer or software, but hey! Enjoy!
