A Great Drive Home

Once I get out of traffic-nightmare-Redmond, my drive home can be quite nice. It is 84 degrees out today and I decided to take all the back roads home so that I could chill. You know, because I really NEED to chill. There is hardly any traffic on them because you only really know about them if you are a local to the boonies like I am.

I opened all my windows, put my sunglasses on, let out my ponytail and let my hair fly up through the sunroof. (its always a mess anyways...LOL) I didn't turn on the radio and I turned my phone off. One of the backroads I took is SO GORGEOUS. It is probably where the serial killers bury all their bodies, but it is breathtaking nonetheless. It is a winding road with lots of overhanging trees and shrubbery - and it follows the river. I loved the silence and the warm air. It gave me a chance to just think and fantasize and r.e.l.a.x. I should really do this more often. I love to drive when I don't have to deal with stupidity and traffic. If I had taken my camera with me, I think I would of pulled over and snapped a few shots. Oh well. Next time.

Its time to relax on the back patio with a beverage. Who cares if I am on all cold medicines known to man? Not me right now.

I don't think I could turn the radio off while driving. I twitch and shit if there's no noise. I'm weird. But, that totally sounds therapeutic!
