Today was "smash and grab" day....you know what that is ladies, mammograms. The "technician" no matter how gentle she is there is still that smash, pinch, oww feeling. However, I will gladly suffer a little smash each year after the two scares I went through, the last being in 2006. Fortunately, neither
"scare" resulted in no more than a few days of hang wringing and palpitations, thank God. And because of those 2 scares I go through the Smash and Grab once a year. I just automatically after completing my appointment, make one for next year. And I encourage all of you out there to follow suit.
After completion of "smash and grab" I feel it is definitely necessary to give myself a treat. I headed in what I thought was the direction of one of my favorite flower garden centers which is located on a beautiful piece of land. However, I never stumbled across it. I even tried putting the name in my GPS, to no avail...so I found my way back home, stopped and grabbed a sandwich and walked over to the Riverwalk which is located in my downtown. This is what I saw as I sat and ate lunch....ahh how sweet it is.
After I finished eating, I decided to walk a little down by the river and see what delights I might find. Today over at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday she encouraged us to take a picture with a "Look Down" theme. So here is my interpretation of look down....looking down the river using her texture, "dreamit" and linking to Texture Tuesday....
As I made my way back to the car, two girls were paddling down the river having a fun time, hopefully with not a care in the world.
We should all paddle down the river sometimes, leaving all our cares and woes on the banks and hope they will all float away before we return.
