What a pleasant little day this turned out to be. Without any planning for such a thing. Work kept me busy. Which is a definite plus. I despise a day that is full of nothing. It makes for a long and agonizing day. A busy day and it does not feel like drudgery. It feels productive. Lunch plans with one friend turned out to be lunch with three friends and Nennie and Hootie. A great break in the middle of a busy work day. It was very nice for me. And Nennie and Hootie got lunch on me. I suspect, no I know, they anticipated that. But that’s the perks of being a mom. And Nennie didn’t order a steak so all was well.
A bike ride after work. And what do you think we rode to on our bike ride? A brand shiny new bike store! Not open until tomorrow but the door was open and I asked if we could come in. Of course they said yes. The only down side to this was as we were riding to the bike store I asked David if he had his wallet with him. Sadness. He did not. Lucky for him. I checked out the bikes. Beautiful. The one I was most drawn to was so shiny….. The sales guy said “it looks like your size”. If it had not of been totally inappropriate I would have kissed him, or hugged him, maybe I should have just high fived him. Regardless, the bike stayed up. David didn’t have his wallet with him.
You think that was the end of the high lites/lights? No. We went to Dairy Queen! Carmel Cheesequake Blizzard.
Then, on our way home, it occurred to me that I do not like how we haul our bikes. I prefer order and organization. David prefers toss it in, ball it up, dirt doesn’t matter. My head spins. We got home. I went in the garage and all of the clutter out there and decided I needed to design a new way to haul our bikes. I had a great plan. It didn’t work. So we puttered around. David decided to build something. I decided to clean and adjust my bike. And by the end of the afternoon we had bikes packed on our prototype new bike hauling system. And we’re ready for a long ride this weekend. I do think I should patent this. But, I have some design ideas that will have to be added.
It’s after 8 p.m. and I am still awake.
This letting life happen thing is the way to do it.
Good day. Good night.
