After she left, Keith and I walked from here all the way to the other side of the Elk Creek Bridge and back, for exercise. We both need exercise so much. It used to be that we walked together all the time, when we first moved here... but when I got sick and had to have the hysterectomy last year, we quit and we're both so out of shape now. He needs to walk because of his diabetes and I need to walk because I'm overweight and because of high blood pressure... so hopefully we'll keep walking every morning now... at least, that's the plan.
I also finished chapter three in the Artists Way book. This is like the third time I've done chapter three but probably the first time I actually did all the tasks. Instead of trying to keep up with the one-week schedule, I'm just going at my own pace.
Later we went on a tour of a few river access places we've never been to before. Here's a photo of China Point. It is still a bit smoky here. The smoke is coming from the Florence/Biscuit fires in Oregon.
Going there helped get my mind off the misery I was feeling because of my mom leaving.
