Weekend doings

Posted Jun 16 2013 7:10pm

Another weekend come and gone.  Ahhhh!  Did a lot of biking, family time, eating, and checking things off the to-do list.

Biked a lot on Saturday.  Obligatory bike shot!

No real destination riding this weekend per se, just racking up loop miles around home.   I did an early ride in morning for about 12 miles thinking that there wouldn’t be much traffic.  There wasn’t, but the ones out were crazy!  I almost got hit by a car.  The closest in a couple of years.  The worst part was as I was yelling into the driver side window (because that was how close I was to being hit by a stop sign runner) – the driver just lifted their hand like “Whatever” and kept on driving.  I was shaking like crazy, partly from adrenaline and partly from anger.   It’s pretty rare to have such a close call, but it really only takes one to go horribly wrong.

Here are just shots of the randomness of the weekend.  This is an old factory that is being torn down along the bike path and there is one wall left.  Wrecking ball hit this, obviously.

Nice path riding – away from cars!!.

This is actually right next to that old factory.  Doesn’t seem super safe to me, but I assume they know what they are doing.

This weekend was also the LARAC arts festival and we had a meetup there.  Sis, mom, and 1 niece.  Girl Power!! I biked there and met them.

I really like this festival.  It’s juried and there is a lot of fine art, which puts most of it out of my budget, but I still like to look.  No pictures as most artists frown on people taking photos of their work.

Lots of people.  Have I ever mentioned my dislike of crowds??  :wink:

I did have an apple turnover, though.  Yum!

I ended up with 35 miles on the day of miscellaneous riding.

I got home and went to say hi to Pixie (cause she was sleeping all day).  Look at this lazy, lazy girl.

I even captured the yawn.  I love my Pixie!!  :grin:

Sunday morning was a very quiet early morning.  John was out of town and my breakfast time is too early for my folks as I offered a Father’s Day breakfast.  I did my ride early and got in 26 miles (61 for the weekend – woot!! )

Brought my kindle and relaxed for brekkie:

Book I am reading is Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us
by Michael Moss  - Uber eye opening, let me tell you.

Of course, reading that didn’t stop me from taking my folks out for ice cream later :D

I also had time to work on a project I have been thinking about for a bit.  John had removed a couple drawers from an old cabinet in the shop and was going to throw them out, but then I thought I could repurpose them into something.  I finally got around to scrubbing them clean and ready to do something with.

Can you see these as shadow boxes hanging on the wall?  I can! I have a few ideas.  The question is, to paint or not.  We don’t really do rustic, but these look fun.  I will either stain or paint (most likely paint).

So not ready for Monday!  When’s the next Powerball?
