Out of Office: I’m riding my bicycle
Ah, finally. I got my bicycle yesterday! I love it. I may just have to change the name of my blog because while the weather’s nice, I’m not going to be inside sewing any time soon. I’m going to be outside riding my bicycle. Exercise has never been so easy for me. I can’t wait for summer as I’ll be staying cool and fit with the breeze blowing across me as I ride the beautiful trails around this area on my bicycle. I can hardly believe myself. I am amazed with my life changes every day.
I’ll have pictures for you just as soon as my oldest daughter uploads them from her camera for me. Cayden and I rode our bikes (his still has training wheels and he’s practicing braking – a lot) around their cul-de-sac yesterday while I got used to riding my bike. Both my daughter and son-in-law hopped on for a bit and enjoyed the heck out of it. Just wait – in the next year or so, I’ll have my whole family biking with me, including grandkids.
By the way, it’s true: you never forget how to ride a bicycle.
Eventually, Lily will be going with me once I get her a carrier but first I have to get a rack for my car as putting the bike inside the back is just awkward, and last night, getting it out took me 20 minutes and I broke the chain guard. That pesky chain guard that broke in the shop before I ever bought it. Bad design. Actually, it wasn’t the guard that broke, but the place it attaches to the bike frame. So I have to take it down to the shop today and have them check it out. It’s still rideable, however and that’s exactly what I’m going to do today.
So, while I’m away, please enjoy this little fun and completely silly song by Queen.
