The weather finally broke here in Derry. Since I arrived on March 5th, it has been quite rainy and cold. We even got a little snow, but most of that white devil stayed in higher elevations as you can see from the photo below. Thank goodness. I've had it up to here with snow this year! We had one of the worst winters in a while in West Virginia and I know Derry did as well. Thankfully, today was nice and I was able to go for a long walk in the warm sun.
Pic from a few days ago...snow in the mountains. This pic was taken from inside a warm house 'cause I ain't goin' out in all that.
So, off I went. About twenty minutes into my walk, I arrived at Curves. Wouldn't you know it. They were closed for their afternoon break which lasts from about 1-3:30pm. Insert curse word here. I got there about 1:40pm. Okay, so the Curves thing didn't quite work out but I still had another stop to make.
About ten minutes later, I arrived at the doctor. I went to dig into my bag to pull out my registrations papers and Mutha F£$%*&! I musta forgotten those! I wanted to cry. I was 0 for 2. But, I pressed on.
Another twenty minutes later, I finally arrived at Barry's shop, tired, sweaty and what I'm sure is a blister about the size of a golf ball on my heel. I haven't looked to see how big it actually is yet. But, it was worth it--a little exercise in the sun never hurt anyone even though I didn't get Curves and the registration papers crossed off my list.
