Fire Delay

July 15th, 2013

Last night, just as we were getting ready to sit down to record Cultivate Simple, the fire radio went off. You have probably heard that Mr Chiots is a volunteer fireman here in our community. When he wasn’t home by 10:30, I figured I should write this post delaying the podcast until tomorrow.

We would have recorded the podcast in the afternoon, but Mr Chiots was busy checking one of the five things off his list. We went down to a friend’s place and he got his first sailing lesson.

He really enjoyed himself. I stayed on shore getting some much needed rest and relaxation. Looks like I really need to look up a mushroom class or something to check something off my list of 5 Things.

Have you learned anything new recently?
