We had a beautiful May weather day yesterday, so we went bike riding.
We saw a horse named Hank, and a baltimore oriole.
The skies were gloriously blue.
My new seat made my arse feel fine for the entire ride.
I also borrowed Fireman's riding gloves and you know what?
My hands did not fall asleep once on the ride.
FYI: the Des Plaines River Trail.
I used to think, as a child, that all of our water was polluted.
Yup really. Now, I know we have sandy/muddy bottomed rivers and that makes the water look dirty even when it isn't.
I thought people in other parts of the USA just had blue clear water because they were cleaner.
The river at its most shallow looked very clean and clear yesterday.
We enjoyed the day to it's fullest, and I treasured how lucky I am to be retired. We never touched the ground so I did not have to worry about ticks. The trail was crushed gravel and nice and wide.
We have lots of ticks in this area, and I do not like them one bit.
Huck used to get ticks often and once in awhile we would get one too. If I so much as saw one crawling on me, I itched for days.
So, yet another reason to like cycling.
If you noticed how flat our land is, well you are right.
That's how I like to ride, on the flat with the wind at my back.
Thank you ALL for the great ideas for my mitten tip finishes.
This community of knitters is so helpful.
I knew if I asked, you would all step up and share
I will be inside with the heat on today, as we are 30 degrees cooler today than yesterday . Ahh Chicago Spring, it is a fickle thing.
How's your weather today?
As you like it?
Will you knit inside or out?
