We have had a bit of warm up around here this week. It’s been quite mild and we have been able to squeeze in some riding. All riding is gravy riding from here until the bikes come in for the winter. Today after the rain cleared, I headed out for a 10 mile ride before lunch. Good to clear my head from work.
Oopsie, got diverted!
They were ripping up the path on either side of the road it crosses over. Probably for utilities or something. Detoured for a ways and got back on.
Kind of a damp morning for riding, but it was 58 degrees and you can’t beat that for later in October!
I did a little door flipping on the side. Someone put this old door out for free at the curb. John and I picked it up and I sold it to someone on my vintage list for $30 (they eat that old chippy stuff up). Love to make a little scratch from someone’s unwanted stuff! And it didn’t end up in the landfill. Win-win all around!
I am sure anyone watching me lay on the floor by my guitar shooting macro would have been amused.
My window feeder has been attracting a ton of birds. I got some nice close up shots of them.
And the Titmouse:
This winter I will put some different seed in there along with the safflower and see what else comes. I had other seed in there before, but the squirrels managed to climb their way up the side of the house and eat it!
Making progress on the downstairs utility sink area. The carpeting is removed – all old framing removing and now it is ready for new framing and the new plumbing lines:
The sink is on order and we will be putting down vinyl click ‘n lock plank flooring (looks like wood). Eventually we will do the whole rest of the basement in that flooring, but it’s too big for us to afford to do that right now. Next step is framing for the new back wall. John has been doing most of this work, which I appreciate very much.
And finally – Today’s pink item: The flowers on my new gloves:
