Most of us on the East Coast are expecting a BIG winter storm to start within the next 24 hours. Pat had a great idea on her blog. "Let's break the winter time blues", she said. She had several ideas of how to pick a picture. I went to my 5th folder and choose the 5th picture.
And what a great picture it is. This picture was taken along the creek that runs down beside the Linville Caverns.
Yesterday was TJ's 34th Birthday. My cousin that sews (well, she's my only cousin) comes up every Wednesday and we sew or craft something. Or sometimes we just sit and talk and have a blast. Yesterday was no different. TJ normally goes and picks us up lunch, but we decided to go out yesterday since it was his b-day. Well, before we left we had a surprise for him on the way back. He loves adventure and loves to have a good time. I have a Chrysler Sebring convertible right now (rental car, I'll explain later) and it's brand new. We had lunch, and went to the spill way at the damn and it was roaring with more water pressure than I'd ever seen there. Anywho, on the way home we pulled over and put the top down on the car. Yes, it was 41 degrees. I've never laughed so hard in all my life. Me and her were not to cold, as we were in the front seats with the heat on high. Thankfully, TJ had a hat on and a hoodie. He said it was cold but he would be fine as long as we didn't roll down the windows. So, what do we do? Yep, rolled down the windows. We had a blast. We stopped just short of being home and put the top back on.
I think he'll remember this birthday for awhile. His mom called later from California to wish him happy b-day and he told her what "we did" to him hoping for sympathy, but she was soooo on our side. She loved it and just laughed.
Happy Birthday to the love of my life. I'm glad you can have so much fun and see the best in everything. (Even if you were freezing)
My "new" car was hit in a parking lot 2 weeks ago. It crumpled the hood so bad, you couldn't open it. I didn't even notice I had been hit till I got home that night. It was a hit and run. It's been in the shop since Monday and we're hoping it will be done Friday. uggghhh
