I worked really steadily this winter to keep my physical strength and mental health and I am so happy to arrive at the is first day of the new season in GOOD shape.
Not great, but certainly better than previous years when I came out of hibernation.
This winter was the first for me as full time at mom's doing care service.
It was the most snow we have had in 5 years or more.
I managed to kayak in the months of November, January, February and now March.
I now have the challenge of clearing out my old place and moving what I want to keep into storage and dumping the rest of it. This is hard for me; both to do the physical, on site packing and moving (again) and the emotional work of letting a lot of stuff/ memories go.
I have longer days and warmer nights to help, less firewood to carry/ stack/ burn, more friends to spend time with. I just need to buckle down, and do it.
