Hood River has been having some gorgeous weather this week. The sky is blue, the sun is warm and there’s a lovely light breeze. Since I’ve had the last few days off, Siggi and I have been making the most of these sunny days.
This morning, after getting breakfast with Jordan at our local organic market/cafe, I walked to my physical therapy appointment. After the appointment, I walked home, grabbing some fruta con chile on the way. When I got home I put Siggi in her harness and we headed over to a nearby field to throw her ball.
It is from this sun soaked field that I write, barefoot and lounging in the green grass. In between ball, I lay down, look up at the planes passing high overhead, and focus on nothing but the moment at hand. It’s times like these when I realize how lucky I am to call this peaceful city in the gorge “home.”
