Yesterday was our first day spent back in Nelson. It is lovely to be home. The pace of Nelson is like a breath of fresh air - or maybe that IS the fresh air! It was a bit overwhelming at first. The house and the yard were in need of some serious work. I swallowed my pride and put it out there and asked for help. I was fortunate that Amelia, Anna, Steve and Mike all had time on their hands and love in their hearts to lend a hand.
Now the house is clean, the yard is weedwacked and mowed and Anaya and I's bedroom has been re-organized so that it suits us perfectly.
My two close friends from Vancouver, Stuart and John, have come to visit for a while and help me with Anaya until our nursing support kicks in again. They've been an amazing help and comfort. John's been making sure I eat (entirely too much), and encouraging me to take moments for myself while he watches Anaya. I even had a bath. (This is a luxury sometimes!)
Brent is coming over to visit with Anaya for a while today, I think she will enjoy the time with him. I'm going to take Stu and Jon on a tour of our beautiful little town and show them how lovely Kootenay lake is. We walked down by the waterfront last night and I took this picture.
The Koots are home. This picture is dedicated to my friend Cameron.
