September 23 Summertime in the fall

The guy on TV was waxing poetic today about the most perfect summer that BC has ever seen and it just keeps on going. It is clear and warm but not too hot. The skies are blue and temperature records for this day have been broken.

I can’t believe that it is fall already. Where has the time gone? It has been quiet here after the excitement of brain surgery last week.  I am hanging out with my uncle, taking drives and getting to know each other better.  I am fixing some meals but mainly Marce and Rika’s friends are showing up at the door with food and good wishes. It is a beautiful community that holds them close and supports them. It is making me long for my friends and family.

As the days go by I am getting Vincent ready for the road…a bath, brand new tire chains just in case the weather in the mountains turns ugly…although with the fans going right now it seems unimaginable. Better safe than sorry though.

I have maps prepared and the places I will stay are plotted. I am going to see a friend that I have not seen for almost 30 years. It is exciting. Lots of driving ahead though so I am enjoying my last few days of a real bed and family for a while.

Talk soon.

    Hey Vicki
    Great picture of you in bare feet an t-shirt and your car wheels in chains! It is hard to imagine you needing them especially with what you have on but yes better safe than sorry. Now back out to my garage to try and make room for my car when the snow decides to make it’s entrance. Hmmm it must be that time…when we start thinking about the inevitable winter.
    Here’s to good driving weather on your way back home to us all.
