Happy Mother’s Day!
Such a nice weekend! Saturday started with rain, but then it got nice and I got so much done! This was the first weekend in many weeks where I didn’t work on at least one of the days. Having 2 days off was a real treat. I got working on some painting projects, including doing my great grandmother’s table!
I made my own version of chalk paint to paint it in a linen color and did a transfer on it. I can do a tutorial on this if you want. It was easy and came out cool.
I coated it with satin polyurethane for protection and now it will be by my side again as my table during work!
Sunday morning was ride time! This was our first breakfast ride of the year, can you believe it?
This is the Hudson:
This is the husband!
What an amazing sky, right? We stopped at Coffee Planet for breakfast!
After lounging for a while, we continued on our ride. We decided to mark how far it was to bike to Radiance Manor from there. Turns out it is exactly 1 mile! Totally walkable to come downtown as well. We creeped around the property just to make sure it was okay and so I could see what was happening in the back yard.
You know this is killing me.
Want to see something kind of sad? This was written on the back of the house:
I feel bad for the family that had so much trouble here.
Did I mention this house is 95 years old? This is an old milk chute.
There is a similar door on the inside of the house. From the inside, you would put your empty milk bottles inside the compartment and the milkman would be able to get them from the outside and replace with fresh milk. How times have changed.
This waiting is so hard. Ugh! Anyway, we had more riding to do. We took a turn down a side street near the path that we have never been and came upon a treat!
This is Glen Lake. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a place on the water here? No tourists!
Tulips blooming at the Country Club:
Definitely a great day for a ride and we got in over 23 miles.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! We took out my mom for a nice casual dinner at The Spot.
Very beautiful evening as well.
