Why Not

Being the goof that I am, I thought "why not" as I took the snowshoes and poles off the hooks in the utility room.  We had plenty of snow on the ground and it was so much fun last year that I actually said to myself..."what am I waiting for?  Who cares that it's still snowing?"

However...

I should have known it would be problematic when I sat in the old cedar chair on the patio.  But once again, I had thought why not I'm wearing waterproof nylon pants as an outer layer?  (Apparently, over time, they really aren't so waterproof as I began to feel cold and wet "back there.")

The next thing I did incorrectly was put the snowshoes on the wrong feet!!  Although I cannot tell you exactly what I said to myself, even Moon and Copper came running when they heard me voice my "frustration"!

Now, wet derriere and all, I began my trek around the yard.  My left leg was feeling totally different than my right.  "Hmmmm, must be my imagination" I thought as I kept on trudging...up the hills, down the hills, over to the feeders and back to my starting point.

It was when I went to remove the snowshoes that I realized the toe of my left boot was not secured and kept getting stuck in the snowshoe.  Even after all that...

I was able to snap a few pix along the way...






And
why not?

So comical...sounds exactly like what I would do! :-) Great photos, though on your "trek."

Nina said...

Oh boy ... that is what happens every now and then!
You got so much snow - freshly fallen snow that is light, is easier to remove, that the wet one, that can be so heavy.
