The heat finally broke! Lots of rain rolled through and it was much cooler this morning, although still a bit humid. Cool enough to have breakfast and coffee out on the front porch this morning!
Early mornings are the best time to sit out here because there is less traffic. We live on the main road through town, so all the trucks and cars go by. That will be a big bonus when we get our new windows in the house – less street noise.
It was a nice relaxing morning of reading after breakfast, then catching up on blogs and watching the Tour de France without interruption! Another good stage today. I can’t believe how long they go without any breaks. So many miles day after day.
Lunchtime involved a chicken bbq wrap with laughing cow. Really good!
After goofing and making sure the rain was gone for the day, we decided on a bike ride. Just a short 17 mile ride today. It’s amazing after doing those long rides that 17 miles is really nothing to do.
It’s all about perspective. 17 miles used to be a big deal! Anyway, 10 miles into the ride, we stopped at the Chocolate Mill for an afternoon snack – delicious display case:
There was a little tart in there made just for me:
Would you like a closer look?
Delicious. Enjoyed outside with a glass of iced tea!
Another of the Adirondack decorated chairs:
We walked around downtown a bit. Then we biked home.
John wanted to take me out to dinner as a thank you for all my hard work this week watching the business and doing my jobs. I wasn’t going to say no to that! Decided to make it a date night and look nice 😀
We went to Wholey Crepe for dinner:
Sat outside on the patio because it was the perfect night. Cloudy, so no sun, cooler, and no breeze. Just perfect! It is so nice to be able to spend time outdoors again without melting. I had the Oscar special, which was a locally made chicken and pesto sausage in a crepe with peppers and onions.
Delicious! Of course, when going to a crepe place, you must have dessert. John and I split the s’mores crepe.
Filled with marshmallows, hershey’s chocolate and graham crackers:
Dang this was good. I can’t imagine eating a whole one, unless it was as a dessert only with no meal… and after a long bike ride….
John said the nicest thing to me during dinner. He said I looked so happy and that I was the definition of radiance at age 42. Awwww…..
And to show me an even better time, he took me grocery shopping after dinner! Yay! We didn’t need much and I want to bike to breakfast tomorrow, so we picked up stuff tonight.
Here is another shot of Pixie awake:
There was a neighborhood cat under our car and she was having a fit about it. She used to run around outside when she first came to us, but not anymore. Indoors only.
More time to spend on the porch on a beautiful night!
