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!
