SOL Challenge Day 5
I an not usually an excitable person. There are few things that can get the adrenaline flowing and the heart pumping. This morning, though, I am so excited that I can hardly contain myself.
It all started when I looked out the window. Snow! More snow. Snow still falling! Do you know what this means? I actually get to dress up like Nonook of the North just to put the trash out because today is garbage collection day here. I get my heavy coat, slip my feet into a pair of boots, and put on my gloves. All of this just to put out garbage. Now tell me, does it get any better that that?
The excitement doesn’t stop there. Later on I will get to dress up the exact same way. This time, though, instead of putting out garbage I get to go across the street to get the mail. Wow! All dressed up to get the daily influx of bills and junk mail. I can hardly wait.
To make things even better, dressed in my layers I get to shovel the exact same spots I’ve shoveled numerous times already. This time, though, I have the added thrill of trying to find a place to throw the snow. The banks flanking my driveway are already waist high. Who knows how much higher I can make the piles. This also works as my weight training for the day. Who needs dumbbells when there is snow to shovel?
I don’t know why I am sitting here writing this post when there is so much fun and excitement awaiting me just outside my door.
