Sunday Outing

It was above 50 degrees outside and since it’s January and since I hadn’t had unfiltered sunlight bathe my skin since, oh, I dunno, sometime last year in 2014, I decided to tag along with AC and Sam to the soccer pitch. And by tag along I mean: make them carry all my stuff while I hobbled the long walk from parking lot to field on crutches. AC set me up with a special chair for my foot so I could watch his pick-up game.

Sam played with the 11-year old sister of one of the players and had a grand time exploring.

I enjoyed the sunlight while it lasted, but then every part of my body froze to ice except for my foot and leg wrapped in the cast. Note: fiberglass is good insulation! Fiber glass winter coats could be maybe a thing?

After it got too cold to play and I hobbled back to the car (didn’t warm me up as much as I’d hoped) we stopped at Trader Joe’s. While AC ran in for a few things, Sam offered to drive me a few other places.
