A Mountain Journey

I came to you through the mountains. I saw peaks robed with snow Every moment I saw a new vista. The clouds parted to reveal the sun. I approached your lake below the glacier. I saw a silver, mirrored surface. Soaring birds of prey searched for fish. As I watched them fly, I felt true freedom.

4 down

I spent some time tonight digging up shrubs that were growing in my garden. I hope I took out enough to kill them. I'm not sure what kind of plant they were. They grow long taproots and break off at ground level if you try to pull them up. I got four done tonight. It was helpful that the ground was wet from rain the past couple of days. I was glad I wore a mask. It helped ease the chill from October evening.

My tomatoes have new blossoms. I think they are planning for a mild winter

Choke cherries

When I was growing up in Vermont, I remember a fruit called chokecherries. It was extremely sour but I think we made it into jelly once or twice. I just looked online and the natural range includes where I'm living now. I'm not sure it is something I want to grow, but it would be different. My front yard looks horrible. Lots of dead patches of grass. Maybe the drought earlier in the year did it in. I gotta look into what to do.

Thanks for the fav on INKTOBER 8: Teeth - Do you know where she's been?

ヽ(♡‿♡)ノ

Do you know where she’s been? Because I don’t. But I can imagine. Penguin rustling in the Sahara. Scaling the pyramids in outback Australia. Translating ancient 1970s text messages in the sprawling urban jungles of Boise, Idaho. She could have been anywhere, doing anything. You just don’t know. Don’t let the sweet smile and gentle demeanor fool you. She’s been places. She’s done stuff. Probably. I just hope she kept the receipts. Her accountant has been bugging me about it and no one has seen her recently. But I’m sure it’ll be fine. I’ve heard that the tax office is pretty lenient about decades worth of unpaid back taxes, right?
