« Ten on Tuesday: Strawberry Fields Forever | Main | New bikes! »

14 June 2012

Objects in mirror are closer than they appear

In other words: It's a random bullet-y type of day!

  • We're heading to Door County tomorrow evening to participate in Saturday's Ride For Nature for the second year in a row.
  • We'll also participate in the inaugural Door County Beer Festival, and I'm really looking forward to it!
  • Having learned our lesson last year, we are staying overnight on Saturday instead of trying to drive home.
  • Annie's riding with us this year, and Mom & Joe are coming up on Saturday!
  • Last year, besides the New Belgium sticker for my bike (that I'm still extraordinarily giddy over) and some other goodies in our welcome packet, there was a coupon from Nor Door Sport & Cyclery.
  • I ended up with a rack and saddlebags for my bike! I didn't really use them much last year and was beginning to wonder if I'd made yet another dumb purchase.

Coneflowers

  • Guess what fits beautifully in one of those saddlebags?
  • Knitting!
  • For the second time in a few weeks, I rode my bike to Tuesday Knit Night!
  • It's 8.5 miles one way.
  • I took a slightly different jog at the end this week that took me past a wonderful little garden at a local high school.
  • I was surprised to see the purple coneflowers so prolific already!
  • It was an easier ride on Tuesday than any other I've done so far this year -- little wind, no cliffs to climb.
  • I'm still feeling it in my legs and butt.
  • It's not painful, just a reminder... I guess that's good.
  • Due to daylight, knitting out time is limited and... I hate to say it, but the days will be getting shorter again soon.
  • I guess I'll just keep doing it for as long as I can!
  • I love killing two birds with one stone -- something that I should do combined with something that I want to do.

I think those reminders in our muscles are a really good thing. I'm still feeling Monday's TRX work out in my arms and it reminds me of how hard I am working. Have fun this weekend, it sounds awesome!

You have a great weekend ahead of you. AND still plenty of summer and knitting out! Weeks and weeks left! Enjoy the ride, the weekend and the good company!

Sounds like a perfect weekend ahead!! And I'm reminded that I should start taking my bike to knit night and not drive...

I was surprised at your photo of all the purple coneflowers, too! Early this year, apparently.

Re: shorter days. There is not a lot of change in the length of the days in the weeks before and after the solstice; the more dramatic change happens in the weeks around the equinox.

Those are the best kind of reminders, you know! Reminders that you're moving and getting fit. :-D
