seventy-four

I don’t know the official high temperature today, but my window thermometer read 74’F … and in the course of a week, nature has exploded into springtime.  While I should have been doing other things, I was seduced by the weather …

Just things seen by bike (and apologies for double-posting today).

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.
