A Black Friday Bike Ride

I like this picture of the back seat of our truck.  It describes the last couple of months of our lives.  Top left is my surgical boot, then we have the Pilates mats, and at the bottom are the bike shoes which I can finally wear.

We got a Christmas cactus from Lowe's.  It's happy, and it's entertaining us as it blooms.

Today we rode 34 miles with Don and Jamie.  We stopped at Starbucks for coffee and a nosh at mile 26.  At that point I was fairly cooked.  This is the court yard where there are restaurants and shops.  It's pretty.

After we finally returned home, I was really cooked.  Tomorrow will be a non-riding day.  We bought lights to put on our palm tree so we're going to do that, and laundry.  There is always laundry.  How do two people mess up that many clothes?

The sunset tonight was impressive. It went from some anemic pink streaks to this in a matter of seconds.

That was today; ride and go to the grocery store because we still do not have a functioning refrigerator.


  1. A stop at Starbucks make everything better!!

    Beautiful sunset:)

  2. Sounds like a nice way to spend the day, sure beats crowds at the mall.

  3. So glad to see you back on the bike! Remember, slow and easy does it!

  4. Please mention your routes in Tucson. I sorta' know some of them. If I knew more of them, I'd have more fun in March, which is my annual Tucson month.
