Pulling out the big dogs!
For the first time this fall, it just felt to me like it was cold riding to work this morning. The thermometer showed 45 degrees when we went out to run, but I think it dropped a couple by the time I left for work. In addition, there was a pretty stiff wind from the northwest in my face the entire trip to the office. I think it was the wind on my face that made it seem as cold as it did because I was dressed appropriately.
I wore my Lake winter boots for the first time this year. I’ve been toying with the idea a few times already, but today was the first day I figured I would be wearing my tights on the way home from work. For some reason, I’m a little self-conscious about wearing these things with just cycling shorts! Am I the only person in the world with that hangup? When you think about it, I’m not self conscious about going anywhere in my spandex, but spandex with boots? Nah..that’s just too much.
It sure was nice to not have to deal with booties over shoes today…..
Oh…and get this. At lunch, I took Dad’s basketball tickets over to him. I had no more than stepped into their kitchen when Bonnie offered me a piece of pumpkin pie! And, I turned it down! I love that stuff, but I was afraid if I sat down to eat a piece, she would keep trotting other stuff out and I would end up stuffed! I guess there could be worse things in life.
