Taking in Life Around Me......#Sundaystills.....Theme: Plunge
I'm also NOT a fan of being in the water...deep water, rushing water. I'm not a strong swimmer, so that's probably why, but several years ago my family all wanted to go white water rafting..the girls all had friends going and to be honest, I did NOT want to be left out. So I "sucked it up buttercup" and went. I told the guide (who looked like a young Matthew McConaughey) that I did NOT want the raft to tip. Ha! Thankfully it didn't and I didn't fall off, though one did. That was definitely taking the plunge. I'm in the back row on the left next to my husband.
I took the plunge and ate raw oysters in 2021 in honor of my dad who had passed away the week before. I probably won't do that again. Yuck.
I literally took the plunge last year and did a polar plunge in our local lake with my hubby and some friends. Hubby is the second in from the right. It was cold and there was still some snow on the ground.
My hubby talked me into going to the top of the Astoria Column. While it is enclosed, there are spaces between the steps and if you look down, you can see it all...not my favorite thing. The column is 125 feet tall and has 165 stairs. The artwork is called Sgraffiti which is an Italian renaissance artwork and was done by an Italian immigrant. The column was completed in 1926.
Tongue in cheek, I plunged into taking down the Christmas decor, which ended up taking almost the entire day. Now my house looks bare and I need to find some things to fill some spaces.
