The annual spring mission - #SOLSC Day 4
I love March, when during the Slice of Life Challenge, I commit to writing on a daily basis. It's fun during 31 days of posts to watch the ebb and flow of my writing. Some days I'll be incredibly pleased with how a post turned out; other days I'll just be glad I posted anything at all. A huge thanks to the gang at Two Writing Teachers for hosting, organizing, and commenting on this ginormous event each year. I appreciate the community of writers you encourage the entire month of March, and all the Tuesdays the rest of the year. Thank you, thank you.
This March, I plan to connect as many posts as possible to my #OLW for the year - SAVOR.
"Karen, it's freezing out! Why in the world are you leaving the house in flip-flops?!! And isn't it snowing?!!"
My husband's words penetrated my consciousness, but I shrugged them off. I was on a spring mission.
Thursday night was my annual spring pedicure; the pedicure that occurs after my feet have been ignored for quite some time throughout the winter, and now need a lot of TLC (and a fresh coat of paint on the toes). So off I went outside in the snow no matter what my husband thought.
As I drove to the salon, the snow squalls that had been occurring, increased in intensity. When I walked from my car to the front doors of the salon, my head and coat (and toes and feet) were covered in snow. I entered at the same time as a gentleman, and he took one look at my flip-flop clad, snow-covered feet, and gave me a glance that clearly said, "You are crazy, lady!"
His disdainful look penetrated my consciousness, but I shrugged it off. I was on a spring mission.
I walked upstairs, and that is where the magic happened. Feet immersed in a very warm whirlpool bath. Back massaged from top to bottom by the comfy chair. Feet and legs massaged for what seemed like hours. Toenails painted a pretty pink color.
I savored every heavenly moment.
Spring mission accomplished.
I am also joining Ruth and the #Celebratelu group today as I celebrate spring and an amazing pedicure.
**Author's note: I realize that pedicures must be part of my writing territories. I looked back and noticed that pedicures have been one of my slices every year I've participated in #SOLSC. Thanks for indulging me. ;)
