No. 15 | #100happydays - they say hard work is good for the soul. In #idaho, hard work is every day life. I fell like a bag of bricks onto my parents’ living room floor last night - complete exhaustion after another day of winter prep. Two days of firewood chopping/hauling down, one more to go. #iamhappy #iamblessed to not have to do this every single day of my life, like so many people do every single day of theirs. I’m also #thankful to have grown up here, because I have a different #perspective than most #Seattle-dwellers. #family #hardworkisgoodforthesoul (at Sandpoint, Idaho)

No. 14 | #100happydays - it’s a true #laborday weekend for me and #MaBoo. After 8 hours of chopping/hauling/stacking firewood, we return to my parents house that has no running water at the moment. True #perspective of what’s really important I guess. Funny how I grew up with this, but now I go home to Seattle and flip a light switch to get instant fireplace. #iamhappy #iamblessed to have a #family that smiles and laughs, no matter what kind of #bullshiiit the boonies deal out.
