What a nice relaxing weekend! We did manage to do a lot, though. How about a flash recap:
Paying for John’s football meal:
Nice weather on Saturday, warm enough to get out the bikes again! Yippee!
Yep, still some snow, but the roads are clear.
We headed to Glens Falls and I hit up the Shirt Factory Holiday Open House.
I ordered a new bowl from the potter that is there. Someone broke my favorite bowl. I won’t name any names, but it wasn’t me and it wasn’t Pixie.
I like the Shirt Factory. A violin maker moved in:
No guitars, though 😀
We then biked to buy some Christmas lights. This was false advertising:
I don’t know where they grow gold Christmas trees. Maybe in the land of the 1% 🙄
Bicycle and Christmas lights! We each had one on our packs.
LED lights and saving gas by biking. I should change my last name to Green.
We are getting desperate here people. We resorted to afternoon lattes here:
Actually, the latte was about on par with Starbucks, but much cheaper. The “baristas” were scary, though. I asked if they had decaf lattes and they said “No, it’s espresso.” 😯
This weekend, we also hung up the Christmas lights and did up the tree:
Sunday brought more biking, too!
There was a lot of traffic and this ride was a little annoying in that regard. We stopped in at Sweetie Pie’s to make this a cupcake ride!
I had a butter pecan cupcake:
It was quite good. The ride was only 17 miles round trip, but I was a little tired from 2 days of biking in a row. It’s easy to lose the bike legs when you aren’t riding regularly. I think this was probably the last ride of the season.
There was also a beautiful sunset:
The weekend went by way too fast! Not much done in the way of Christmas shopping (never do Black Friday), but I got in a lot of relaxing and some unexpected riding with about 33 miles over the course of 2 days!
