Mid-term Monday Mania

Hi All!

It is Monday again. Isn't it funny how they keep rolling around?

Today is my mid-term in ASL 4. To be honest, I haven't spent much time at all studying this weekend. I have been studying all along so I hope I am ready. If not . . . oops!

It seems like whenever I have mid-terms or finals, things get a bit crazy around here!

Today, walking was a bit less than enjoyable. First, the temperature was a bit low. When I woke up, it was 55 degrees. Chilly but fine for walking in shorts and a sweatshirt. I got ready and headed out the door. Only to realize that it was also raining a fine drizzle.

No problem! I grabbed my trusty umbrella and headed out . . . into a monsoon strength winds along our main street!

I should explain that because we live by a lake we get a lot of weird wind currents. One of the worst is along the main street in our sub-division. For some reason that street acts like a wind tunnel and amplifies the wind into hurricanes! If you head down a side street it isn't that bad.

Normally, my walk takes me quite a distance down the main street. Today - I took a detour!

I walked a totally different route today. This should have been interesting - filled with new things to look at. However, because of those weird lake wind currents, I had to keep my umbrella down so low that I didn't really see much besides the sidewalk! Each time there was a break between houses or a cross-road, the winds would pick up and I had to fight to keep the umbrella from turning inside out.


Add to this wind the fact that the fine drizzle was pelting my legs . . .

When I got home my legs were freezing! To the point that when I hopped in a nice hot shower, they felt like they were on fire as the water hit them! Not good!

Oh well! I am now warm and wrapped in my robe. Life is good again!

I do work today - we will see what kind of mayhem will happen there!


Voice Update: Doing well. I am not really in a talking mood but things seem to be good so far. I have been working on my exercises. Not doing quite as well on my massage but not too bad either! I do have an appointment with Susan this week!

I totally would not have walked. You get the blue ribbon!

Ew! Your weather doesn't sound like fun. Maybe you should get a Snuggie.

I kid!
