I've been in my element, lately. My two wheels and I left a few miles behind us over the past few days, returning to a local bike path that goes through a wooded area. I saw Jack again, sitting in his pulpit
and the gals with their pretty red frocks
I had forgotten how this path is a slight upward incline for a few miles. Leg muscles get a good workout in the beginning. After the initial burn, it's a steady ride. It's perfect for unwinding after work, or for a short ride on a busy weekend evening.
I also made it to the gym a few mornings last week, which may sound devout and committed, but I have to admit that I ruined all that work with a really good New York-style bagel and cream cheese. (Not the soft, doughy type! A crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside bagel with a shmear of fresh cream cheese :)
And then there were the cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar.....
I will be back at the gym tomorrow morning....and yes, it was worth it ;)
Have a great Tuesday! I'll catch up with you later.
So far it’s been a good life. I’ve lived in both rural and metro areas, waited tables and reviewed chromatograms, rounded up loose sheep and spent beautiful summer evenings at concerts in Central Park. I’ve painted a house, kissed the Blarney stone, and pushed a lawn mower with a baby on my back. Currently I’m working 9 to 5, going to the gym, sneaking a donut, a good book, or a visit with my grown sons when I can. Where do I go from here? I'd like a small house with enough land to homestead.
