On Sunday my husband I & went on a motorcycle ride, & a picnic. We went to the mountains there was still 14 inches of snow & 16 inches of ice on the lake. My husband started the grill up we each had a hamburg, I brought along macaroni salad, baked beans ,chips, oranges, bananas tea/water. I had everything measured out in portions . Last year our plates would have been heaping full. The only ones to join us were the little birds hopping around looking for a hand out of a crumb or two. The fishermen were dragging their drills across the frozen lake to catch a fish or two for their meal later on . We went for a walk in the cold crisp air. We then packed up my husband ask if he could have an ice cream so we stopped at the ice cream parlor. The waitress could not believe when she saw our bike, then to her surprise she gasp when I told her where we went on a picnic ,she just shook her head, so my husband said we were ordering ice cream to go along with the cold out side. We then rode throughout the valley with each twist & turn in the road the cold air stung our cheeks even with the shields covering our faces. The next day at work was so hectic ,but I took a moment or two to reflect on what my husband & I did on Sunday it brought a warm smile to my face then I carried on with my work duties, & it was not so bad after all.
