I'm only just coming into my second year of country living and I've already learned so many new things... One thing I didn't realize, for instance, is how FREAKILY DARK the woods are in the evenings--even when it's still bright enough to read a book outside.
CHILLS. It's making me appreciate so many horror movies so much more...! Even when it's dark at night in the woods in the movies WE (the audience) can still see pretty well, or else we wouldn't be watching a movie...but the characters?! Oh man, they'd be so screwed! No wonder they're always tripping and hurting themselves... o_O
Every single walk we take (just got back from our after-dinner walk right now) I HAVE to make the remark that it feels like being in an X-Files episode, heh. (It was mostly filmed in Vancouver so the foliage is so familiar! Love it.)
Other than that, it was a really good day. Killed my to-do list and got my stretching and two walk/hikes in. Visited the foxes about a dozen times, heh. Now, I just need to re-clean the kitchen and then it's time to just relax with my guy.
Hope you all sleep well! I think I will--all the outdoor activity is wiping me right out (which is good).
