I’m coming around folks. Repairing our decrepit former house, staging and selling it, packing, finding a new place to live, managing to buy a house in WA, and setting up a new home all during a pandemic was an intense year-long effort. At the same time, we did a lot of work for FamilyLife. I’m now in adrenalin detox.
I’m now reading two or more books a week. Kit and I also go hiking through spectacular scenery nearly everyday then come home to watch BBC programs. Kitsap County provides a public fishing pier near our house. Frequently the pier is crowded with fisher people pulling in large crabs and squid from the Puget Sound. They also catch silver salmon from the pier. I haven’t gotten one yet, but did manage to get a saltwater cutthroat trout. Who knew there was such a creature?
Let me encourage you and myself even more than you. When you know you’ve been through difficult challenges, give yourself a break. If stress makes you touchy–and it does me–your break will be good for everybody not just yourself.
