First order of business today was my bike ride - another few hours training with my buddy David. No photos, but we did a great pace (for me) of 17.0 mph for 51 miles. Which, strangely enough, is a shorter ride for me these days! (Not long enough to really tell if I had improved my little problem with razor blades). David went out for another identical loop after I quit - good for him! We'll ride longer again next weekend. But I'm very happy with putting my first 176-mile bike week down in the old spreadsheet!
I had to stop early to attend our local community meeting today. We gathered for our little annual neighborhood business meeting while we watched the log canoes race on the Miles River and stuffed ourselves on a sumptuous potluck. We brought amaretto cheesecake, and fortunately (?) there were leftovers to bring home.
Earlier in the week we made several daily trips to the playground, as we do almost every non-rainy day.
Elisabeth and Catherine are starting to demand to take photographs themselves with my little camera. Mostly they take pictures of fingers and parts of their hands and the ground, but occasionally a few come out great! The nice part of digital photos is that they're all free, and you can let the kids "burn film" at an astonishing rate.
