We’ve been biking fiends for a number of days now. It’s just so nice to have the weather acting like spring! When I was out riding on Monday, I passed close to a tiny thing that at first I thought was a leaf, but it didn’t blow away. Then I thought, “Was that a turtle? It can’t be a turtle”. Of course, the softie in me turned around and rode back to see if I could find it again, which I did:
He was just sunning himself, only in a dangerous spot. I was kind of surprised he wasn’t squished because the path was pretty active since it is spring break around here. Isn’t he the cutest thing? It’s a painted turtle baby. He’s just a bit bigger than a quarter. I tried to take a picture of him in my hand, but he was squirming too much. I moved him off the path but still in the sun.
So cute! Hopefully he will stay out of trouble.
The bike riding streak ended today. It was cold and blustery, so we walked to breakfast.
Noms! It rained today, too, but we could use the rain.
I did an upper body workout for more exercise. Normally I like to do full body workouts, but with all the riding I wanted to give my legs a break.
- Chest press 3 sets 10 reps
- Dumbbell row 3 sets of 10 reps
- Shoulder press 3 sets of 10 reps
- triceps extension 3 sets of 10 reps
- Low back extension 3 sets of 10 reps
- Biceps curl 3 sets of 10 reps
We have the Bowflex, so I need to make use of it on the regular.
I have to share this picture of Pixie. She was sitting in the piano and looked cute, so I pulled out my phone to take her picture just as the doorbell rang:
She is so annoyed LOL! The person at the door was a plumber. We have a small leak at the main pipe into the house that needs fixing. Because of where it is, the city has to come out to shut the water off at the street so the work can be done. Well, whomever built the cement part at the end of the driveway and sidewalk managed to cover up the valve. Idiots. Now the city is going to have to drill into the end of our driveway to get to it. Thank goodness it is on that part and not our newly done asphalt. I probably would have cried over that. That will get done some time next week. Yay home ownership!
