K.I.S.S.

- Roast ham, rubbed with fresh sage/parsley/salt/black pepper/garlic/oil paste
- Turnip, preparation undecided
- White/Red/Purple fingerling potatoes (guest is bringing)
- Squash (Guest also bringing)
- Buttermilk pie
- Roll out a batch of buttermilk biscuits
- Homemade cultured butter from the frozen portion of the first batch. Will need to make more after this.
- Might pop the cork on a bottle of vinho verde.

Plink steel spinners and knock over field target with BSA Lightning while ham roasts. This will be a mellow day.

Looking Up

Caught up with a friend I have not seen in too long and she wants to start hiking 4,000 footers together. It’ll be nice to have a hiking buddy on call. And she is thinking of signing up for the piccolo fondo after looking into the gran fondo I registered for.

And she still has the shotgun I gave her years ago.

My wife is hitting up a weightlifting class regularly, the kids are looking forward to bike/fishing season, and we live a fifteen minute walk from a great swimming hole in the river. Life is looking pretty good, right now.

This has been your quarterly ray of optimism, sure to be dashed as I realize the rest of the world continues to be annoying.

Well…

Registered for a Gran Fondo in August. And am starting fundraising for one Gran Fondo and one Century in July, a Century in September, and a 5k Mud run in July. Plus a handful of timed hill climbs.

May wear out my new bike in a season :v

This Ride Is No Fun and I Would Like to Get Off, Now

Made it trough three hours of work with the boss and the guy I was working with asking me if I was okay every time they saw me. Now to head home and pop all of the tums and ibuprofen.

This will make the first time in six months I have taken pain meds.

Oh, and my road was closed as I drove home as it is about to flood and a bridge may wash out :/

Feeling Spunky

Up to a pint of ginger ale, a few cups of ice, one orange, and half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Blueberry jelly.

Also managed to stagger into the living room for a little Xbox time.

Groan

I just wanted to ride the new bike before work, today. It is all shiny and carbon fiber…

Maybe I’ll live to pedal, tomorrow. And I need a pack of “Fight terror, ride a bike” stickers.
