06/17 (Day 59)
Today was a simple day. I slept in and spent the morning at my grandpa’s house relaxing and resting. I’ve considered this place a home for a long time and I take great comfort in being here. Of course I had a lot on my list of things to do but I made sure to lead a relaxing day.
The most important thing on my agenda was to wash my clothes. I’d wanted to do this for so long. Some of the clothes I haven’t washed since I got them in Boulder, Colorado over a month ago. I rode my bike five miles to Lake Michigan where I waded in the clear cold water as I washed my clothes by hand with a Dr. Bronner’s bar of soap. It took me about an hour and a half to wash all of my clothes but it was enjoyable as I was soaking up the natural water of Lake Michigan and the rays from the sun at the same time.
