It's been one heck of a week, but we're getting back to normal slowly but surely. We've heard of no more flare-ups of the fire, and so we were confident enough to move the RV back into its usual spot yesterday. We really needed to get it out of the way of the garage. It's still about halfway packed, but that will change today. Hopefully, we'll feel put back together by tomorrow, and rain is still forecast to start then. It's a little weird wishing and hoping for rain, here in the Pacific Northwest, where it can rain for months without end.
While we were outside yesterday (and we're limiting our exposure to this terrible air), I harvested another small bowl of tomatoes.
It occurs to me that having the RV in the driveway might have been making her anxious. It's back where it belongs now, and so maybe she'll settle down too. I know we're settling down some. Possibly, she's just acting out all of our anxiety, like the canary in a coal mine.
So today, we'll finish unpacking, and maybe I'll do some laundry. I need to go into town tomorrow to mail off the quilts I've boxed up, and so we'll make a quick stop at the grocery store. That means I need to make up a list too. I crossed off all the housekeeping chores from my calendar when I thought we'd be gone for two weeks. So...I could add them back on I guess, but nah! I'm still on vacation! Housework will have to wait until my brain and my motivation get home.
