|This is the bridge that is over the canal that is near my house which isn't the house that Jack built. An even better picture of it (well, one that I like better anyway) is my photo for today over at my Project 365.|
However, the recharge doesn't really work unless I actually go out in the sun, and lucky for me, it was even fairly warm today. Like, so warm I didn't even really need a coat. FYI, so warm I didn't even really need a coat is around 34 degrees Fahrenheit if the sun is out and the wind isn't blowing. Let's just say I've acclimated.
So, as soon as Sophia hopped off the bus this afternoon I fed her a quick lunch and we were off to run errands. We went to the bank to deposit some checks. We went to the recycling center to drop off nearly two months of recycling (what a relief THAT was!). We went and washed the car, which was so dirty you couldn't tell what color it was anymore. We went to WalMart to get a few things--some of which ended up being Cadbury Eggs. Cadbury Eggs! Last time I checked, it was still January and Easter is months away, and WalMart is already stocking Cadbury Eggs. Which means I am in huge trouble because I love those things. Anyway, after WalMart (and after eating a couple of those darn eggs) we went and paid the water bill downtown and then we headed to little Sophia's violin lesson.
After her lesson, we would normally run home to meet the girls as they get off the bus, but I decided we should quickly drive down to the canal and catch some pictures of the bridge. I really do need to branch out on my daily photos and I was realizing today as I drove around how pretty the water is all frozen--especially in the sun. It sparkles like diamonds in the sun. When it's overcast, as it usually is, I think it just fades into the rest of the black & white scenery, but wow, when the sky is blue and the sun is shining, it's just gorgeous.
When we got there, Sophia wanted to take some pictures, too. So I gave her my phone and she took her job of photographing the bridge very, very seriously.
All recharged, and minds at ease.
And then, probably because I had the audacity to wash my car, it began to snow tonight. I guess we are going to get several more inches this weekend. Harumph. (At least I'm recharged.)
