Hello everyone! Wednesday is the last day of January! I have one word to describe January ~ COLD! The good news 🙂 it did warm up for a few days, not that it was warm, it just warmed up, so I was able to enjoy a few days of winter walking. I did puteth on my winter coat, wooly hat, scarf and mittens. I walked to the bakery where I savored a hot chocolate and did read a book. Yesterday at the bakery, there was a birthday party! There were approximately fifteen women gathered around three tables that had been pushed together and they were having a great time. They each had a cupcake with a lighted candle in it. Here’s hoping for warmer temps in February!
Hubby decided to have some work done on our SUV ~ we call it, the truck. 🙂 So, before we departed on our journey to the mechanic, I asked for directions. I was following him in our car, to give him a ride home, and I wanted to know where we were going in case I lost sight of him. He gave me directions that resembled this ~
Hubby ~ Head out on This Street and go . . .
Wifey ~ *Interrupted* Do you mean east???
Hubby ~ Yes. Drive until you come to the fork in the road and then turn left. Drive until you see another fork in the road and turn left again and the mechanic’s business will be very close to where you are at.
So, he took off and I was to be right behind him, but when I got in our car, my seatbelt was acting weird and I was delayed. I thought to myself ~ Self, I can do this. I have directions. So, I started driving. When I departed our driveway, skies were clear and the temp was in the 30’s. Well, as I drove, I gazed ahead and saw thick fog. I thought to myself ~ Self, that looks like fog??? I was puzzled, but continued onward. Within just about two minutes, I was in a snowstorm! It wasn’t fog. It was random snow! I turned on my headlights and the windshield wipers and drove on. For approximately 1/2 mile it was snowing!!! Never in all my born days??? Then suddenly the random snow ceased! I thought I might be in the Twilight Zone. 🙂 Who knew???
I arrived at the fork in the road, turned left, drove about 1/2 mile and came to a flashing yellow light. I thought that was probably the second fork in the road, so I turned left again. Well, you guessed it, I was lost??? But, just for a few moments. I drove until I found a place to turn around and I drove back to the flashing yellow light. I prayed, I guessed, and decided to drive straight on thru the light. And behold, there was the mechanic’s business. Hubby was waiting for me, in the entrance, near the street. A happy ending! I never did find the second fork in the road. Mmmm.
Your favorites, at the cottage, in January ~
