Halfway through the week! Our temps have gone back to more seasonal, although even a little cooler than that. We biked to breakfast today and it was 50 degrees! Brrrr.
Doing pretty good on my goal of 2000 miles for the season. I am at 430 odd miles so far. Not bad considering the late start to the season. I ride pretty much every day. Some days 8-10 miles for a lighter day, 15 for a ‘maintenance’ ride and 30+ on the weekends. It sure feels good to get out on the bike. Even though it is getting me absolutely zilch as far as weight loss goes. Guess I just ride for this:
Yes, indeed. On an interesting note – it seems that more and more people are wearing helmets when riding – which makes me happy. I noticed it especially on Sunday. It seemed just about every biker had a helmet on.
We still keep meeting neighbors. One of them stopped over and said she noticed how much work we were doing on the outside of the house. They had just ripped up their slate patio and wondered if we wanted the slate. Heck yeah! So, we loaded up the Saturn and practically bottomed out coming across the street with it 😀 I knew there was a reason we still kept that car.
There is more to the right out of the picture, too. Dang – let me tell you this was heavy work! Loading and unloading. These stones are heavy. Functional fitness at its best.
This will save us a mint. We had designs to make a walkway around the garden beds in front to go out to the back (through Lily of the Valley town). We were pricing pavers and slate and then the neighbors offered us this. How nice. Everyone just seems to be really glad that the house is owned and being taken care of. Of course, it does make us feel like we are being watched a little, though. Often times when we are out working on the front – walkers will stop and tell us how it is looking great and they love the house. It does stick out a little because it is an unusual looking house in the neighborhood, but that is one of the reasons we love it.
As far as the old house goes, we might be making progress on closing. Pretty much by this Friday we will know if the deal is done or dead. Hoping for the former, prepping for the latter.
