I am up at my mom's property up in the mountains.
I had one agenda bringing her up here, my lady that is.
To be completely alone with her an entire day.
No kids, no adults, no intrusions from the outside world.  

Once here though, I forgot the combo for the combination lock on the gate~!
But it eventually came back to me and then....I had to replace the electrical outlet
for the power to my trailer.  It was cutting out last time up here and this time 
started doing the same thing as soon as I plugged it in, so I just go out there 
and replaced it.

I helped that it is cold up here.  Why? Perfect snuggling weather.
We spent the entire day cuddled up together, watched a couple of movies,
ate dinner, watched another movie but after that?   We just cuddled in silence
and basked in the warmth and glow of each other's love.  We talked at great 
length today before that point, I had some things I needed to be clear about.

And at the end of all of that?  I don't know why it was so hard, but it took me
all day to get up the courage to get up, pull the ring out of the closet I had it hiding in
and asked her to marry me.

She said yes.

It's very late by my standards - 11pm - I am going to bed.

Goodnite world.

Good, good, good, Ben! May you both be blessed in this!


Well it's almost 3 pm and I haven't heard from the manager about a run for tomorrow, so I'm going to assume that it isn't go...
