Things I Like


Cooking and piano playing!

A weekend with no biking, what’s a girl to do? I guess all of those things that you don’t do when riding 40 or 50 miles

There was some shopping at craft shows. Although, I have to say I came away empty-handed. I bargained with John – he had to come to a craft […]

Tour de paths

This weekend was really hot and sunny! I needed this:

The traffic has been bothering me on the bikes, particularly out in the afternoon, so John planned a ride that took advantage of the paths as much as possible. Plus I wanted a more relaxing ride since it is a holiday weekend.

We decided […]

Wet Weekend

Busy weekend! Here I was thinking I wouldn’t get to bike and did my 30 mile ride on Friday. The rain was supposed to move in, but looked like it was going to hold off a bit so we decided to head out for a morning ride on Saturday.

No destination, just out for […]

No snacking weekend!

I was up early on a Saturday morning to do my strength workout. I wasn’t intending on getting up early, but I just woke up, so I was at the gym at 7 a.m. on a Saturday. No life, I tell you…

Weekend and Google keyword fun!

December really feels like it is here now. It has been cold!! Biking season officially over and that means this:

Inside trainers – pointed at the TV we moved from our bedroom. We swapped out the tires on our bikes to prevent all the flat tires that we had this last season. Apparently the […]

Weekend wrap up and new axe!

Weekend fly by! I haven’t checked in for a few days here. Goodness. Friday was quite busy. I went to lunch with the garden club and that was nice. A nice group of women. Of course, they don’t meet again until April! It was nice to meet everyone in a more casual environment rather than […]

Running for me and beer?

Thanks for you comments on my musings earlier LOL! Back to regularly scheduled programming…..

Woke up too early again today. It was a little after 6:00 and I went to bed after 11:30. I really do better with 7 hours of sleep, so why does my body persist in waking up early? Anyway, I just […]

It's the weekend!

Yay! Another Friday is here!We are going for a long bike ride tomorrow, probably to Lake George. So, I took it easy on my run today. Did 2.25 miles. I managed to shave some more time off, did 1 mile in 14:40. Yay me! Kind of had to grind it out today. I did not […]

It's the weekend!

Yay! Friday! Glad to have the weekend with no construction going on outside the house! Most of our front yard was dug up this week. I was getting ready to yell holy hell at them, thought they had their machinery on my garden bed, but they were just right along side it. It’s a nice […]

Cake today

I did well on eating, but I did plan for some chocolate birthday cake. Had cake for my sister (which I made). It was quite good, and I enjoyed it.

After watching my nieces for almost 12 hours (!!!!), I hadn’t gotten in much cardio. So at 9pm, right after they left I did the […]
