I love my wife! The day started with a nice walk with Frida. Lacey said she wanted to go to the gym in the morning. I said it was so pretty that maybe she’d be willing to bicycle in the country with me. No driving to the gym. No electricity used by the work out machines. Free vitamin D from the sun. Togetherness. It is kind of cold and very windy, but she said yes! I love pedaling with my sweetie!
Lacey wanted to ride her Bridgestone XO-2. It is her favorite go fast bicycle. Her Panasonic road bike is probably quicker, but it isn’t as stable or comfortable and the XO-2 has easier gears. Perfect. I picked out my new Bridgestone RB-2.
Lacey also wanted a bagel brunch. I had thought the same thing when I woke up, so I stuffed a cotton bag in my coat pocket and planned a country route that dumped us out by a grocery (where we could get Tofutti cream cheese) and then we’d continue home and stop by the bagel store.
After the grocery, we faced a pretty long ride along a very busy street, but as luck would have it we had the strongest tailwind the whole way. It was amazing. We had to be going twenty-five, maybe more, with almost no effort. I haven’t had that kind of fun in ages!
The line for bagels was out the door and moving slowly. When I got inside the door, I grabbed a bag of day old bagels and headed to the cash registers. That’s the ethic there. If you don’t need the help of the sandwich makers, you get to cut to the registers. Score!
Home safe now. Lacey is cleaning up while I type. Then bagel brunch! Woo hoo!
I hope your Sunday is extra special, too.
