Out & About

I'm sure you can imagine by now that I've been getting cabin fever... really really wanting to escape the confines of home just for a short time, well yesterday I had a great adventure. My first official "outing".

I had some errands that needed to be done, things like banking, post office, prescription to pick up etc. and let me tell you...living so close to City Square shopping centre is a god send!

We had a lovely day weather wise, so Norbert pushed me in the wheel chair up to the shopping centre. The sidewalks were somewhat clear of snow/ice and there was a wonderful crispness in the air.

I felt somewhat back to normal just by doing simple tasks like banking and posting birthday cards. Many of my 'business owner friends' & neighbors who see me regularly at City Square stopped to say hello & wish me well. It's nice to be a 'regular' in the area, everyone was so kind. I even saw Karen L., a friend from the Scrapaholics, she was on her way to Fitness World when she saw me.

Norbert & I then went to visit my friend Sam who owns & operates the pub/cafe at City Square, where I promptly ordered up a beer! Sam & his wife Sherry were so sweet, we had a great lunch and even had some friends join us for an impromptu drink.

So my photo of the day for Friday January 2nd is me sipping beer - getting out & about!

You look great, glad you feeling like getting out. Can you hook that jet pack to your wheelchair? That would work out good!!LOL
