New Year Snow
Didn't get much wear out of my new shoes this Christmas.... I love wedgies, they work for me. I have a high arch so I need a bit of a heel, even with my bad knee. Hopefully I get some wear out of them this summer. As you can see we have been having piles of snow! People are starting to complain about it. The joy has worn off! I love how clean things look but wish I could walk in it. I feel timid and unstable on the ice. I'll go where things are cleared. I'm wondering if all the moisture had anything to do with my car blinker not working...I'm crossing my fingers it's just a fuse!
This little guy visited again with my out of town friend who returned to drive her kids to the airport. They live in South Carolina. Luckily they made it in and out before all the airport delays.
We spent an amazing New Years eve together.We ate Asian food with a tequila highball! Our hubbies were best friends in the Army, but had no interest in continuing a relationship after our divorces. Gratitude is evident as we reminisced about having maintained a twenty five year relationship so dear despite how the men lost each other! We have never spent New Years together, so it was really special.
New Years day she did the four hour drive back to Kelowna in the snow....it took longer of course. I admire that woman's bravery. Even though she had a stroke, enduring some audio possessing problems, she is going to university get her doctorate in neuropsychology. It's a struggle because she's aphasic, but that doesn't stop her. She was a practicing psychologist before the stroke.
I know one day I will be flogging her book on my side bar...because she has quite the story to tell! I really miss her....... and her little dog too!!
