So yet another tropical system is mucking up my travels! I was suppose to fly to Guangzhou this morning, but I ended up walking to work dressed like this…
And why would my crazy self walk to work in that? Because last September I promised myself I would walk to work every single day for a year. I have honored that! I have walked to work on beautiful days, freezing days, snowing days and 7 weeks of raining and near freezing days, scorching heat and now typhoon (aka hurricane). It is .98 miles to work, it takes between 12-15 minutes depending on my mood, the weather and traffic. I even walked there 36 hours after my lipo, now that was just stupid, lol, but I did it 🙂
I wrote this out this morning, while lounging in bed, listening to the wind howling and the rain coming down through my open bedroom window…
A Haiku for Typhoon Haikui
As the wind does blow
I watch a leaf settle down
Then blown away gone
Flight rebooked for tomorrow 🙂
Thanks, Andrew! It’s actually made to go over the front of your e-bike, as well!
Can’t believe(but wait, yes I do) you went out in what we here call a hurricane. Love your determination to stick to your goals no matter what. Thumbs Up!!!.
Thanks, Mom. Love you!
Well it is certainly an adventure Sandi. Be safe!
Since its Wordless Wednesday on your blog I want to say I can’t wait for that butterfly to emerge! So exciting watching it develop thru your blog!!!
Thanks Sandi…I’m wondering if you know how to post video? I hope to video the emerging butterfly 🙂 I’m glad you are enjoying this little summer monarch project…but as a midwyfe, I kinda knew you’d be on board ;O xo
You have to upgrade to upload video. I just upload mine to my YouTube account and put a link on my blog.
Good for you! 🙂
From now on I will call you Forest…. as in life is like a box of chocolates. You are such a STRONG woman. And OPTIMISTIC. and a little MAD. xo
A little mad, just a little? Fighting off crazies to protect my ladies and babies (and winning) definitely puts me in that category! 😀
Loved that you wrote a haiku for Typhoon Haikui! . . . and I love haikus!! It runs in my family, too. My daughter exchanges haikus via text with a best friend on frustrating work days. One for you –
Blue rain coat Sandi
No typhoon wind will stop walk
Must a promise keep
Awesome Haiku! Thank you, Sarah 🙂
You’re life is an adventure! You are so blessed!! I will pretend I am where you are today, as I walk in my desert heat and watch for rattlesnakes. 😉
I am blessed and gratefu for the opportunities ive had the last few years!
Careful with those snakes! It’s blazing hot and humid here 🙂
You look dashing!
Rain gear suits me 😀
I am loving the outfit Sandi! 🙂 CHEERS to an obviously amazing life! 😀 Safe travels!!!
I sure hope the flood tides are receding where you are!
Unfortunately, it keeps raining here. It’s crazy! 😐
That’s a scary looking storm!
Hi Kaye… It brought lots of wind and rain, but passed through in about 9 hours. Everything is green and clean 🙂
Wow, I am in awe! Your work ethic (and your field!) is an inspiration! I am so happy that you found my blog, because it’s given me a virtual path back to yours…what a pleasure! Looking so forward to perusing some more.
Have a beautiful week!
Hi Anne! Thanks for coming by! I look forward to reading more of your posts, as well. 🙂
