Mid week already

Are you wondering if I got anything new done yesterday?  Or if I put a chair on the porch and split open radish pods?

Nope.

Not a thing.

Nothing. 

Zippo.

Nada.

Why?  How did this happen?


Us.

Riding away with a beautiful sunset behind us last night.  Hubby surprised me.  With the temperatures in the low 60's, he took a half day off work and we took the Harley out.  We took it out all afternoon, and when his nephew found out, we rode to his place, and rode with him (oh boy, his wife was so angry with him too - she hates that he bought a motorcycle) until the sun began to set.  What a day.  Let's just say my cortisol levels are pretty low now.  It really is our road therapy - so freeing of all worry, stress, and anything else.  I didn't worry about what I wasn't home getting done, and the hennies were all out playing in the run, in the beautiful sun.

I not only took care of the chicks and gent, got the mail, fed the cats, etc etc, but I also did this.

I was quite surprised myself, but I think I had a prosperous day physically and mentally.

Today the weather turns on the sour side again, hence the ride yesterday.  We needed our tanks refilled before the nasty weather arrives again.  It's be a nice mid 50's today, but the dreary clouds and rain will be back.

Mama Pea, it was so worth it too.

mamasmercantile, our rides are so freeing of everything negative. It just fills us up to handle more of winter. And kids.

Sounds like a great time! We have to take advantage of those nice days, after a long winter.
