the reluctant gardeners

We downsized into a fixer-upper in August 2018 and lived there with our three teens and dog during the extensive renovations, much to their dismay. Michael and I bunked the two girls together in the living room, where they slept on mattresses on the floor, surrounded by giant moving boxes. My son was in an adjacent space with a similar ambience. We stapled painting tarps to the room openings to give them a semblance of privacy. There were lots of huffs and puffs about the situation being annoying—and dusty. Did I mention that the five of us shared one bathroom that didn’t have a door? To help with school work, we moved all of their desks into a small family room off the kitchen.

During her first 100 days in office, her familiarity with local issues was tested beyond her wildest expectations. “There’s been a pandemic, fires, protests, and floods,” she says. “It’s been one decision after another. Thank goodness I am spontane-ous and don’t shut down when I have to make hard decisions. I have a strong spiritual and centered mind when things are coming at me, like deciding to close the beach.” Despite the stresses, she wouldn’t change a…
