Frost On The Trees
I wanted to get some that were a little closer, but I just didn't have time. The place I went to get my monitor was about thirty miles away. I went all the way there seeing a whole countryside of white frost covered trees. I kept thinking I wished I had my camera with me, but I wanted to get my problem solved quickly.
I passed by three nature parks that I haven't been visiting because I've been so busy. I looked longingly at their entryways as I drove by. I kept thinking how visiting a nature park would be a great way to relieve some of the anxiety that losing my monitor had caused, but I also didn't want to go without taking Isabella along.
Once I got home I realized that in my haste I didn't get them to give me the power cord that went along with it. I should have known better. I even neglected to test it to make sure it worked! So after a phone call I had to turn around and go all the way back. This time I decided to load Isabella into the truck to go along with me. I decided we would stop at a nature park after all.
So after already traveling 60 miles we were on our way again. I got all the way back to the store, and this time had them check the monitor. The little store had no way to check this one, so I decided to pick another one. After running across two bad ones, we finally found a working monitor! That's the one I'm using now.
So I got back into the truck and drove towards home. The highway leading out of town was the direction home and the road that leads to the nature park. The best thing is that this particular park is only a few miles outside of the city, so we got there pretty quickly once we got past the edge of town.
Soon we were both getting out of the truck. Isabella was happy to finally be able to stretch her legs. She immediately watered the grass when she got there. We were going to make this hectic day of monitor hunting into something good. Off we went into the nature park.
