Whew! Getting back to normal after a vacation is hard! Now that the week is nearly over, I think I’m finally getting there. Work has been a zoo. Home has been a zoo. My mind has been mush, but I think I’m finally getting the animals tamed and life back on track. I’m back to the normal exercise routine. I’ve been commuting by bike all week. Things are starting to look up.
Some interesting notes from my bike commuting week:
It must be some kind of rite of passage around here. Every time school is about to start, the fountains get loaded up with soapsuds. This one was one of the best I’ve seen in a few years!
School actually started here in town on Wednesday and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I haven’t encountered any of the confused and inattentive parents driving around that have plagued me in the past. Not sure what the difference has been this year, but I’m not complaining.
It was really rainy and stormy the week I was gone. We came home just as the rain ended, and my yard was almost out of control. This unfortunate homeowner is on one of my routes to work. You can’t see the end of the tree trunk from the picture, but it looked like the ground just got too saturated to hold it upright anymore and it came crashing down.
I ran into Ron this morning on the way to work. He’s a genuinely nice guy, and it’s always a joy to encounter him. He was off work today and out pleasure riding at 7:00 am.
I’m hoping to get the tandem out for a while this weekend, but feel like we need to keep it pretty short. I’ve been missing my tandem fix the past couple of weeks, but since Pam hasn’t ridden I don’t want to overdo it.
