The wind woke me at around two. I felt awe and a little fear. I’ve been up ever since, reading, making toast and coffee, and once there was daylight, listening to a podcast (Stay Tuned with Preet).

Finn and I walked quickly, me glancing up nervously, listening for the report of a snapping branch, just in case.

When we got back to the house, we startled a turkey. She was on the porch, investigating a bag of garbage.

Yesterday was kind of a big day. We met with a financial planner, who asked critical questions about retirement timing, expenses, the house, long-term health insurance. All the stuff we’d rather not think about.

No wonder I was tired all afternoon.
