I had off work today and found that my trip to the garage was both cheaper and shorter than I expected. I wasn’t sure what to do with my unexpected free time but after doing laundry and calling my aunt I decided to go got ice cream at Ballyhoo.
After having light turn from yellow to red right as I went through, (do they mail tickets for that?) and finding most of West Pittston’s roads blocked off due to major road work I decided to just walk.
I hadn’t walked that far in a while and quite enjoyed it. I decided that ordering a campfire sundae was an excellent reward for all that walking through the heat and dust. The campfire sundae is a wonderful confection of chocolate ice cream, gram cracker bits and toasted marshmallows. It’s like S’mores were magically transformed into ice cream.
After enjoying both the sundae and writing, I took the long walk to my car and discovered this poor house that had been ravaged by the flood of a few years back. It had a for sale sign on the porch and was on a busy road to I didn’t venture close enough to look into the windows. If it ever sells, it will need someone with the money and vision to restore it.
I also noticed how pretty the view of Pittston was from the bridge and snapped some pictures before heading home to work on a fall themed magic wand. It was a good day.
