A nice near miss this week: I took out my bike for the first time in a few weeks. The front tire was a bit low, but there’s a pump at work. I wobble my way there, park my bike and BJING! The tire explodes. Parked. At work. Not in the middle of traffic. Not a 40kph while going down a hill.
And yes it sucks to have to go change the tire. It was the day I decided to wear off white pants and a white shirt, so I took it to the bike co-op and paid myself the luxury of having them put on a new tire and inner tube. But it was a beautiful day and it got me away from the computer on my lunch break.
Other lovely things in the week; I had some time to kill and decided to call my family from the swimming area near the lake. I watched the sun set and chatted.
And more nice things: I was able to combine a walk with a nap that had a view of the mountains. (I know, napping means you’re eyes are closed so you don’t see anything, but waking up is pretty cool.) I also saw my friend Muriel for the first time in months; we had a tea and caramels from the new shop in the village. And yoga class was outside. The hall where we normally go was occupied. It was chilly but awesome.
Tonight I see the love of my life, and Foro is on the train with me, enjoying the view.
And I am soooo not dead….
