Good day yesterday, 35 miles on the Silver Comet. Many thanks to our friend Tammy (aka “In My Behind”) who touched base on a Sunday and we set up our ride yesterday. We both have signed up for Spring Tune Up and wanted to kickstart our training.
Making a trip tonight to Masquerade for The Beths show. I’ve seen the band a couple of times before, this will be the first time I’ve seen them solo.
I solved today’s Wordle in three attempts; my starter today was SPEAR
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 197.2 pounds (-0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); I’m doing a poor job at weight management. I hope to improve upon this starting today.
I feel a bit adrift without coffee today, which is verboten for at least 48 hours after teeth whitening, as are caffeinated sodas. Thankfully I have adderall.
Wordle in 3 for the second day in a row, starting with LEAST. I started with BARRE yesterday. Mini in 39.
Wordle in 5- shoulda been 4.
Quiet evening mostly. Debbie ponied Tanner (led from the back of Phinney) while I helped Tanner get with the plan. Since smacking him with my hand wasn’t enough, I picked up a stick and that helped.
Put the new brake hoods on the CX bike but still need to finish that up. It seems I don’t have enough spring in the lever to return it to normal position. Might just be old, too.
The blog gods chose to smite my first attempt today so let’s take this from the top again. I’m a bit adrift without coffee today, which is verboten for at least 48 hours after teeth whitening. Thankfully I have adderall.
This is my second day of Wordle in 3. Today I started with LEAST, yesterday was BAR. Mini in 39. I suspect Steve would appreciate 2 clues in today’s mini.
Kudos on the Silver Comet Trail ride, that is always good for soul, especially if you start at Florence Road or beyond.
I have no idea what I said that is against the rules but this my third post attempt. Am I still allowed here?
Ok, I guess I am. Wordle in 3 starting with LEAST. I’m not gonna repeat the other stuff.
Frustrating, ain’t it!
Maddening but it seems to be the price of admission.
Restored, no idea what goes on with that.
Florence Rd was the start/end.
Kevin’s sister came to stay with us last night. She lives in Savannah but she works for National Distributing, which is a nationwide spirits company with headquarters in Atlanta, so she comes up on a regular basis. She is one of my besties so we had a nice time. Kevin is the youngest of 5 siblings and she is the only girl.
I made an amazing fish chowder over the weekend; that is going to be my lunch all week!
Very cool. Fish is the one food I have tried to like, but don’t. I can handle the generic whitefish used for fish n chips, but nothing more exotic.
As a native of the Bay State, I am a seafood lover. But you would be fine with this soup since I used cod, which is your generic white fish used in fish ‘n’ chips!
Wordle in 5 starting with SAINT. That was annoying!
My knee is getting progressively worse. I couldn’t get in to see the ortho until next Tuesday so I’ll be hobbling until then.
Mickey is in the process of a pre-purchase veterinary exam at the moment. He’s passed the physical exam and now getting x-rays. I’m on pins and needles waiting to hear if he’s sold or not. The buyer is pretty intense so she’ll back out over any findings. Most things that turn up on x-rays are never an issue performance wise but some folks want pristine.
I’ve never had any x-rays done so no idea what may show up.
I found out that our new puppy will fly over March 22! She’s the foundation for Hot Pursuit Border Terriers. So excited.
I am a big fan of epsom salt baths these days, for as long as you can stand to soak, and way heavy on the pour. I sometimes stay in the tub for 2 hours and it really does help my knee. I took a preemptive bath before my ballet class on Saturday and had practically no muscle aches afterwards.
Good tip, I’ll give it a try.
I just finished red light therapy on it. I have one for my horse so thought I’d try it on my knee.
Oh good call. I’m not sure what that is but it sounds similar to the cold laser therapy that my wife uses at her clinic, and no, it sure can’t hurt.
I have the epsom salt, I just need to make time to try taking a bath in it.
Got done a little while ago with our hot air balloon ride. A little chilly, but the heat from the burners that keep the balloon floating kept us warm enough.
That sounds like great fun! I’ve always wanted to do that.
Very cool. That has been on my bucket list for a long time.
Yes, definitely on my list too.
Sitting outside at our hotel room, it’s 53 & a little breezy, but the sun is cooking my legs.
It’s a good 20° warmer here. I just returned from a 4-mile lope around the neighborhood.
All cleaned up, now at Belfry Brewing in Cottonwood, AZ.
Next to Jerome, haunted hamburger for lunch, then Prescott eventually later.
