I am, after all, descended from pioneers - Mormon pioneers to be exact. My great-great grandparents walked across most of continental United States to settle in Utah. That's a lot of walking. Over mountain ranges, even. I haven't been walking quite that much but I have been walking alot. Yesterday I walked for 5 hours and that Primary song started going through my head. "Pioneer children sang as they walked and walked and walked and walked". There's more to that song but I can't remember it. Just that line kept repeating in a loop in my head. Today I walked for 4 hours. I was canvassing for washing windows.
This weather is a gift for us - so mild and sunny. You don't usually get both mild and sunny at the same time in the Okanagan in the winter. So much for "La Nina" This is much more like "El Nino". And the timing couldn't be better for us. We need to have our affairs in order before we leave the country. And despite my best efforts to save money ahead for this time there has just been one thing after the other all fall. No one huge thing - just an accumulation of medium and small things. Well, I guess Andrew's braces was a big thing... Anyways, we are grateful for the weather. I am booked now for washing windows to the end of this year. That means tomorrow I won't have to walk so much. Just 2 - 3 hours to get started on next week (next year).
Luckily I like walking....
