such a day
I crammed all my city work into a single day (it's winter, I'm a gardener, it's not so hard) and hightailed it back out to PA. The rationalization is that I need dedicated writing time to work on the outline for my new book. Which I pretty much finished last night.
So this morning Mark and I went on a hike we'd been meaning to do for years: Stairway Lake, between Milford and the Delaware. The trail was almost immediately insanely gorgeous. And almost immediately I realized that while I'd brought my camera, I had left the battery in the battery charger at home. What an idiot!
Please forgive the pathetic cell phone pictures that follow.
Or maybe this was the prize: looking down to the Delaware. See it? No? You would if I'd had my camera battery.
It was a fantastic day. The hike was followed by Brunswick Stew a la Hardy, minimal outline tweaking, and wine making (beet and elderberry, separate batches). Sigh.
