K and I hiked on air this morning, feeling happy and free as we wandered our forest. Your wonderful gift buoyed my spirits, giving me a happy bounce to my gait.
We hiked through a golden-hued meadow.
From the meadow, we climbed a local peak, hoping to glimpse the mountains. Instead, we saw a veil of clouds covering the Divide. A cold wind stung my face as I gazed at the peaks.
Soon enough, we headed down through another meadow, where scents in the wind intrigued K.
I was curious to figure out what scent K was sampling but we needed to head home. It was time to drive to the hospital for tests to check the progress of the bony fusions that should be forming between my vertebrae. The hospital is hours away so it was a taxing day. Although the xrays haven't been analyzed yet, all signs point toward a normal recovery. I'm happy about that but I'm ready to go to sleep (and it's only 6 PM here!). Good night!
