Last Friday was a long day for us, we left Prince Rupert around 9:30 am and finally pulled into our Cariboo driveway close to midnight. The roads were great that day, and since we heard the Saturday would have terrible road conditions, we decided to carry on and just get home.
I have to say, it was really hard going home. Being in the Valley without da Wolf just doesn’t seem right. We have had company with friends, and both times their dogs were there. They looked all over the house for da Wolf, and I am not sure, but I think they finally sensed that he was gone
da Wolf always enjoyed an ice cream cone when it was hot!
While we are home, we won’t have internet access. Today we had to come to town, and while Graham is running some errands, I am sitting in the coffee shop, checking email and posting here. I am enjoying a wonderful Mochachinno and yes, of course, I got the whipping cream on top! It is delicious and I am getting caught up a bit on the computer.
We plan to leave for Southern California this coming weekend, and we are looking forward to some sunshine, heat and golf. To say these last couple of weeks have been quite awful is an understatement, and we both need time to process all that has happened. Grief is a necessary part of losing someone you care about. We have two people and one loyal companion to grieve for, and this is going to take time.
Thank you all for your kinds words, which have been comforting to us. If I can’t get back on the internet this week, I will give an update next week when we are on the road. We are enjoying the peace and quiet of our Valley.
We have no access to internet or TV, and so have been spending time unpacking, then doing laundry, visiting friends, and cleaning the house. Amazing how much dust accumulates when you leave a house empty for awhile. In the next couple of days, we will be digging out the fifth wheel, packing it up and then moving on south.
