After giving myself a few days off – no biking, swimming or much of anything else – I got back out today, thankfully feeling more like myself. I rarely get sick, or injured, and typically try to push through it if I can. But taking a few days to rest and lay back was a good thing, I think; I feel so much better than I did on Friday.
It was raining all morning, but the clouds began to break up shortly after noon, so I decided to make a grocery run – #5 on my Ultilitaire control card. Two bags of groceries, a gallon of milk, a quiet ride through dripping trees, cows in damp fields, and the smell of springtime in the air. Zig-zagging a route on back roads and out of traffic, feeling my legs again after several days off of the pedals. Mileage guestimate: 7 miles. Daffodils emerging: gazillions.

Nice to see you are feeling better. Thought we’d lost you.
fabulous pictures…and again I’m torn between two shots
1. zen clouds

I love the pictures you take of your bicycle, they’re always done in a way that almost gives it its’ own personality. I feel like I’m getting to know your bike as well as you. Always a joy to read your posts, thanks for sharing!
Wow – thank you so much. I’m intrigued by your comment about the bike personality … I really appreciate what other people see, and it fascinates me when they take time to tell me. I am grateful for your kindness. 🙂
