Our Clunker Fun to the Dump

I rode with hubs to the dump landfill after a bit of spring cleaning.

We were just a normal couple going for a joy ride in our clunker van.   I was able to hop climb into the front seat and leave the wheelchair behind!

I rode along happily chatting with hubs during the short trip.  The windows down and wind blowing my hair, kind of day.

It touched me that hubs would take the time to go to the dump when he is not into spring cleaning.

When we returned I took a pic of horse-dog (120 lbs) investigating the area and saying "where did yall go"?

It is surprising what fun an ordinary day can be.  Keep making those daily life memories!

What a nice moment in a seemingly ordinary task. Those are things we end up remembering. :)

It's so nice to get out and about even if only to do ordinary chores. I enjoy a car ride on a beautiful sunny day.
Cheers

Isn't funny how it's the ordinary days that we remember the most?? That's why I love that song, "Just another ordinary miracle today!" :)

Even a ride to the landfill can be a nice change of pace. I rarely get out so anytime I can go for a ride I like it.

i like that winding road i see behind horse-dog and you already know i love the horse-dog. you are right, good hubby for taking you to the dump. i do call it a dump, because i am old and learned that word before the new word was invented. it is a land fill but we go there to dump stuff so i am thinking either one is ok.

You enjoy and get the most out of the simple things in life, like me!! I just recorded this on our church prayer line today "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." Robert Brault

I love how the small things can be so memorable!

I had to laugh about the talking. I'm the one who talks in the car --I feel it's important to have conversation. Hubby's the strong, silent type!
Glad you enjoyed your day!
Peace,
Muff
