A busy couple of weeks…..

I’ve been extremely busy.... doing what, I don’t know!!

We received some bad news last weekend....  A cousin passed away.... he fought cancer long and hard, but could no longer do it… We will miss him.

I managed to get out for a couple more bike rides before the weather turned cold… once it turned cold, my body reacted by deciding to hibernate… which I fought.  I did manage to continue my exercise program - minus the bike rides.  I filled the rest of the days doing more research and doing some long needed work around the house.

In September of last year we had a huge amount of rain....  some of that managed to find a way into the house. That along with a small leak in the dishwasher water line managed to damage a portion of the ceiling and a large section of the wall in the basement.  I tore it all out last year and let it dry completely....  I re-insulated and finally, this week, got the drywall back up....  Still lots of work to do, but it’s looking much better already.

Other than that, not much has changed....  I’m generally feeling pretty good… can’t wait for it to warm up again - like everyone else.

Until next time....

New link added….

I added a *NEW* link for you all to check out....  It’s called ‘The Cancer Mosaic’

What is it??  Quoted from the site: ”THECANCERMOSAIC is a way to show the variety of people that have been impacted directly by being diagnosed with cancer. A way to honor the memory of those who have lost their battles; a way to honor and support those who are still fighting the fight; a way to learn about those who are beyond treatment but still shaped by their cancer experience.”

It’s a great idea for a greater cause… Please take a look!

Another beautiful day….

Tuesday was another beautiful day....  for February 7th the weather was fantastic. Yes, it was windy...again.... but that’s what keeps it warm at this time of year.  It was nice enough to be out riding again.... and although it was windy, it’s been far worse.  I did a short 25Km loop today.... and really enjoyed it....  The wind was at my back during my hill climb, which made it feel really easy today. Riding into the wind didn’t feel too bad either.... until tonight....  my thighs are telling me that I actually worked them.  IT FEELS GREAT!!  At least my body doesn’t feel as exhausted as it used to after a ride.... at least not every day… just once in a while....  I guess I have to remember to take a day off here and there to recuperate.

Lot’s of work to do yet, so I’m off to get some rest....  tomorrow is supposed to be another great day.... maybe I’ll see you out on the road....

Until next time....
