Sometimes it's really nice to just throw plans to the wind and enjoy a wonderfully unexpected day "date". Dusty Boy called me this morning and needed me to follow him to take "the big red wagon" to the truck dealership where he purchased it for repair. Apparently it has the death wobble. That's really what the condition is called. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. So anyway, I knew it would take a bite out of the editing I was potentially going to get done today, but I also knew he would completely do it for me, so I agreed. And boy was it ever the happiest 30-mile or so ride down a long, winding, country road. The sun was shining and my windows were down and sunroof open. I am convinced there is nothing more lovely than soaking in the fresh breath of nature out in the country. Where storefronts make way for big, sturdy barns and carefully cultivated flower beds make way for rolling hills and grazing cows. I am a sucker for a cute cow. And then, once we dropped off the "wagon," we picked up a green tea for me and drove all the way back together, chatting and just enjoying the pleasantness of the day. It feels like a sneaky little treat to leave work behind and just steal a few moments out of a weekday to enjoy life. I live and love for days like this.
