i made a list
of all the things
that i needed to get done today…
and kitty litter,
and the sweeping up never ending
and had thought that if
i crossed everything off
list, i would reward myself
with a drive with the camera
and maybe (most definitely)
a stop at the dairy bar.
well…i crossed everything off the stupid list
and i did get out for a drive
and the sun even made a few short appearances
while i was out so that was a nice surprise.
i ended up at this wharf/lighthouse
(as i often do)….
spring always brings me through st nicholas
where i grew up,
where all my best memories are still vivid
and driving through there
always stirs up
happy and bittersweet/sad
and then to our beach…
(yes, yes, I know…it’s a public beach…)
where the sun started to set
and i remembered I hadn’t gotten my ice cream yet!
but as i got close to the dairy bar,
i realized there were 682 cars and 3 trucks and possibly a snowmobile
ahead of me so
i settled for the next best thing…
a happy meal with a new robot toy!
all in all
a very good spring-sunday!
(well, it would have been better with a sundae.)
