In lieu of my usual Wrist to Forehead Sunday, I offer a Pedestrian Post with a heartfelt sigh of happiness about the weather.
My husband Steven had today off, so it promised to be a good day from the get-go. We went out to breakfast at Crazy Otto’s before a quick stop at the grocery store. It was already warmish when we left the house, but when I stepped out of Crazy Otto’s it was WONDERFUL! I walked down the sidewalk taking deep breaths of spring air. This was a good day for a walk.
When we got back from Hannaford, I wrote a few postcards, as I usually do on Saturday but had not gotten to this week. Then I picked up my script for Leading Ladies. Many of you will remember that is the play I am directing for Ilion Little Theatre. Auditions are tomorrow. I wanted to photocopy scenes for them. Hummel’s Office Plus is a short walk from the post office. They have a photocopier.
I wore my crazy old lady hat and my prescription sunglasses. I was grateful for both. How wonderful to walk along in a mere sweatshirt (um, and the rest of my clothes, don’t get any weird ideas about me) with no bitter wind hurting my face. The sidewalks were mostly bare, and the lawns not too squishy when we had to walk around mud or ice.
After mailing the postcards and making the copies, we walked up Main Street so Steven could purchase cigarettes at Smoker’s Choice. We observed that Valley Exchange was open but contented ourselves with looking at the window. That is a fun store. Linda’s Consignment Shop, across the street, was not open, but I must get down there again soon. Also on the other side of the street we saw people working in The End Zone, a pub and grill to be opening soon.
We walked all the way up to German Street, then past our own street to take an extra turn around our block, because we were so enjoying the weather. Snow is in the forecast in the upcoming week, but I can’t worry about that today. I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday as well.
