resting in the sunshine together

coming upon 30 years (january 2009) together he still amazes me with his ability to recovery from minor surgery to daily challenges.  he walked out to the car instead of a wheelchair and enjoyed breakfast soon after we arrived home.  now we are resting in the sunshine of the fall light.  a stack of garden and yoga books from the library and lentil soup soon on the stove. fall bulbs will arrive in the post today... he can sit in a chair and direct me in the planting ... being present to the day.

fall hike - path 1

a favorite hike about an hours drive ... east into the mountains. we won't make the trek this year as our list to finish outdoor garden planting grows longer than shorter. making way for a new blueberry plot, a flowering quince in the herb garden and mulching the plants for the winter.

a room with a view

we took a short trip up the coast of Oregon, spent a few days in Manzanita and booked a ferry from Anacortes to Sidney B.C. with final destination at Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino B.C. for three lovely days.  reminded us so much of home we hopped the ferry in Nanimo and made it home around midnight.  good to get away ... good to be home.
