My adventure is taking on its own life form. But the upside is that I have had the time to spend with my boys and their families. What a joy that is. I sure have some neat kids……with neat spouses and okay indulge me, these amazing grandbabies. Oh ya……
Okay, studying on the road is a challenge, as I do best when I can have everything spread out and a huge mess around me on the desk falling down onto the floor. It suits me. At present, I need to keep everything picked up and neatly put away. I will survive this.
I am in huge distress as I left my cactus at my oldest son’s. I am a horrible cactus owner when I manage to drive off without them. They are getting to enjoy time with them tho.
Life is amazing when it is possible to reconnect with friends who once might have been rather casual acquaintances, yet through the technology of the internet one has shared good and bad times with them. Over the course of this trip, I have met up with several of these individuals and it has been wonderful.
What I am learning, is that I really do not like the fast pace of life down here. But I can deal with it. I have seen more cars in a few weeks than I saw in five years. I have not seen any moose….I miss my moose. I have seen a ditch diver. He had the most amazing look on his face as he got out of his rig. He could not believe he was in the ditch.
As I sat in traffic going over the mountain pass it was interesting to truly notice the different type of plant life than I have been living with. Fall is just now reaching this area and the cooling of the air is so fantastic. The heat has been difficult for me. This may be too much detail, but I am actually wearing socks tonight because my toes are a wee bit cool. The first sign of the leaves changing is taking place. I noticed a tree today where the tips of the leaves were a light yellow.
My friends in Alaska apparently are awaiting the arrival of snow. I have been following the weather up there. I wonder if there will be snow here this year.
This is a bit disjointed, but it is what it is, just and update.
As always life is good, just in a different location
