Well, now I know ~ I am not cut out for that. No indeed, not at all! That was just a silly, somewhat romantic, notion. In reality, there would be firewood to chop, food scarcity and no local grocery down the street for emergency rations, no television and probably no internet. (Well, with satellites and all, there might be television and internet, but I wouldn't count on it.) The long stretches of being alone, even if you were with your significant other, could make for some pretty dark days, indeed.
Nope, I'm not cut out for the life of Mrs. Jeremiah Johnson. And these last few days have proven that to me.
I'm chompin' at the bit to get out of the house today. The sun is shining brightly and the drippy sounds of ice melting have stirred a song in my heart.
|Oh, heavenly sunshine! And bare patches of grass!|
|Plenty of mud....for tracking in!|
Although the last few days have had a stark beauty all their own, I am ready to resume "Normal Life" and rejoin the world. I guess I'm a more social creature than I thought!
Returning to "Normal", whatever that may be.....
