Lovely sunny morning to bike to bagels. Too bad we didn’t quite make it! We took a chance at not having a tire changing kit and wouldn’t you know it, John got a nail stuck in his tire and it went flat. He hasn’t even had his bike for 24 hours! This was about 3.5 miles from home, so I just biked back home, got the car, and picked him and his bike up. If somebody has a voodoo doll on us, they need to quit it.
My bagel was super, duper tasty. I forgot how tasty toasted sesame seeds are! The wheat bagels looked anemic, so I got this one.
Almost a bit over toasted, but not quite. Delicious!
Poor John, I spend a good portion of breakfast grouching about our luck. I know it is pretty small potatoes in truth, but when it all piles up at once it gets frustrating. I am usually very positive and optimistic, but lately have been less so. Must be hormones….
Lunch break and I was inspired to have some of my rye bread!
I had egg salad made with one egg. Seems like a lot for one egg, doesn’t it? I think it is because the bread slice is small. Plus a mango tango pluot. Pluots are super duper juicy. John gave me the idea to cut these up. Now no juice dribbles down my chin. Not sure why I didn’t think of that before.
I was up really early this morning, so I had that hungry feeling most of the day. I had some snacks:
And some cereal. We really need to fix the bedroom door so it doesn’t rattle when Pixie pushes on it. I have got to get more sleep.
*guilty as charged*
Of course, I would have Pixie in the bedroom which would eliminate the problem, but I do like to keep John around for some things
Latte made with coffee we purchased in Montreal at the market on Sunday morning. They roast their own coffee:
Love those big roasters!
It was dinner time and John had fixed his flat tire, so we decided to take another spin out for a cheap dinner. We went to East End Eatery. I had a side salad:
And a wheat pizza wrap with hot peppers in it!
I believe they were peperoncini- not too hot, but very, very tasty.
Getting a little more comfortable on the bike. I’ve put about 30 miles on it so far. The tire is a little more narrow that I was wanting to get, so I am a little nervous on parts of the path where the gravel is more soft. I also am getting a little chafing, which I believe is just due to the new seat hitting me in places my old one didn’t. Hope I get that callused up by the charity ride in a few weeks! Good thing I have some anti-chafing gel. Or maybe I should go commando under my bike shorts?? 😯
What’s blooming on tap for tomorrow!
