Busy bee

Wow, it's been a busy week. I have had stuff to do after work every day, and work itself has been pretty insane as well. Oddly, I'm feeling calm. I've been enjoying the weather and taking photos. I've been walking dogs and visiting cats. Our dogs are now manageable together for me for over 1.5 miles. (As long as we follow one of two very specific routes and do not deviate. At all. For any reason. If any change occurs, they act like foaming rabid beasts on a rampage.)

It's been a good week, though. I feel like the amount of work has been balanced by fresh air, bike rides, walks, and goodness.

Oh yeah, pictures!

This week has come with a new goal: to be capable of doing just about any repair one could imagine on a bicycle by the end of this summer. Not just installing brake pads and changing tires. Going to acquire a project bike in the near future.

Oh, other goal: finish keg setup and brew an IPA, STAT! This will occur in the next week.


  1. Do you want your old bike back then as "project bike?" With the kids now I don't ride at all, so it's just sitting all alone in the garage desperate for some attention.

  2. Wait, which bike do you have? The navy blue Schwinn? If so, then yes!

  3. Hello, I found your blog a little while ago - great photos!

    I sometimes fantasize about getting rid of the cars and just bicycling everywhere, but haven't taken the plunge. I'll just live vicariously through you for a while
