Today was the first day since December 10th, that I’ve been free to walk out of my house on two feet, sans crutches, sans male nurse disguised as husband, and just dooooooooooooo!
Whatever I wanted.
Whatever struck my fancy.
Just Do It!
So…what did I do?
I grabbed my camera and took her out on a date.
In Mini, who I’ve not driven since then either.
We’ve shared not one single moment of exploration time since moving to Virginia…and I must admit, that’s been worse than the broken leg!
Trouble is…the eastern seaboard is either getting hammered or getting ready to be hammered my Winter Storm PAX.
I am in the latter group…getting prepared.
Normally this would not bother me in the least. I mean, I’m a Yankee for God’s sake! I have ice in my veins.
(No..not THAT kind of ice…the pretty kind 🙂 )
But one must remember that I now live in the land of “OMG OMG OMG…THEY ARE CALLING FOR SNOW” people and that made for a poor ‘Mini, take me away’ day.
It was more a “Mini, get me the hell home because the people on the roads (and I swear…they are ALL on the roads) are LUNATICS and it hasn’t even started yet!”
I made it as far as Wal-Mart, a mere 6 miles from here, because I had some photos I wanted printed. I am supposed to return, but frankly, I don’t think it would be worth it. After all, I’m not collecting hazard pay and having just tasted freedom for the first time in more than two months…NO accidents for me, thank you very much!
So…I returned good ol’ friend Mini to the garage, took CC with me to the backyard, and having left the world outside my little acre to go crazy nuts…I spent a few moments with my VISITOR.
Besides…the skies are dreary, the colors dull, the vibrancy of spring not yet peaking around the corner…I think I found the best the winter has to offer today, right here in my back yard.
Tomorrow is another day.
If there’s snow on the ground, all the better for me and CC.
If not, then we’ll see what we will see when we see it.
In the meantime, my VISITOR and I shall be, for today, FREE BIRDS!
Life is good!
Just ask Lynyrd

Thank you. Happy for me too, and relieved. Thought I’d screwed the pooch, but it’s all on track. Yesterday’s little outing felt GREAT! xo
Delighted to hear you’ve been allowed out on good behaviour (NOT!). The weather owes you.
Hahahaha…that’s funny. We ended up with a pretty good layer of ice on top of the snow, so going out will not be an option…but I WILL collect what I can from the back door! 😉
Woo hoo on your freedom!!! Great shots♥ ( stay away from Wally’s…very dangerous!)
Speaking of Lynyrd…..back in the fall we went to their concert….they could have just played this song repeatedly and that would have been great with the majority of us there. ♥
Hugs and be safe. ♥
You be the lucky one then…must have been FAB! Thanks my friend, I shall be safe and return the hugs…acourse! xo
Very lucky….. Everyone hollering FREE BIRD from the word go…..
Um….did you know we hit 60’s today?!?! Did I mention the sunshine? Okay….then I won’t. 🙂
haha…sly thing, I see what you did there. We hit 20! But, we shall be in the 60s next week…cAr-aZy weather! 🙂
You had me worried there… out driving in impending snowstorm, I thought another possible accident… glad didn’t happen.
You have nice visitors, SB. Glad you’re up and about and cruising the mean streets.
even the mini cruise it was felt great. with the weather, it’ll be a bit before I do another…but am certainly looking forward to it.
Glad you’re out and about, SB. What did you ever do about that moving company? They get what was coming to them?
