It's been a busy few days. A long motorcycle ride about an hour plus south of us -- a long, chilly motorcycle ride! It was 50-60 something degrees, blue skies and open roads. I would have preferred an extra ten degrees or so, but it was a lovely day.
We rode with another couple. I wimped out; I don't ride much when it's cold. I knew it would be over an hour, and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to handle it on my bike. If nothing else, I'd have The Husband to block the wind. We leathered up and spent a glorious few hours zipping around. We stopped in at the Greenwood Saloon and sipped drinks in the beer garden. There were all kinds of cool things to look at and, apparently, play with. TH and his buddy discovered traps hanging on the wooden fence and, of course, had to set them and then, of course, they tripped them. Boys and their toys....but it's fun to watch them play. And oh so grateful there were no trips to the emergency room.
Yesterday I took my CHL class. It's been a long time coming and I'll gratefully check it off my to-do list. I grew up around guns, mostly my mother's side of the family. We'd have family shoot-offs (Mother was a dandy shot), and still do. I don't know how much I'll actually haul a gun around with me, but at least I have that option. But I do enjoy shooting -- clay pigeons or targets.
Then today was supposed to be a work day. I spent half the day trying to make the printer work; TH spent the rest of the day working on it. I was frustrated --fo' sho'. I found an angel card on my desk. It said Play. So I did......I hopped on my motorcycle and went for a ride. I had a lovely visit with my darling sister-in-law, then zipped back home. Another glorious day -- in spite of the printer problems.
Have you taken time to play? It is a wonderful stress reliever and day glorifier!
Have you been there?
PS Please keep all those in Sandy's path in your thoughts.
