Accountability

Friday, December 19, 2014

It's been a real slow day today. Woke up with some heavy raining outside. Decided to skip the biking and get my wheel looked at. It apparently needed an inner cleaning. My good spare Zipp 101 real wheel has developed some bad cracks. The latter means replacing the rear wheel. Saw and bid on a wheel in E-Bay for $150. That's a real deal. They're about $600, new. If I wing the bid, I'll go back to riding the 101's and saving the 303's for special events. HOOAAA!!

Christmas Cards

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Had to put it all (or almost all) to the back burner yesterday. Primary mission: do the Christmas cards. It took hours to address the envelopes by hand (Apple doesn't have a program that I can use to have labels), stuff the envelopes with the card, and separate the cards (overseers/local). Finally at 9:25 PM the mission was accomplished except for address questions for the Boss lady. In all, there were "87" Christmas cards. My fingers hurt. HOOAAA!!

It was indeed a beautiful day yesterday. Temperatures in the 70's and the sun was out. A great day for a bike ride. Am attempting to eliminate peanut butter from my diet. It's very habit forming, for me. I just can't seem to hold back my desires to have more and more. On Sunday I finished it off and don't plan on buying more for a long while. Sure bona miss that deliciously nasty stuff. HOOAAA!!

    I keep a small jar of PB at work to stave off hunger in the afternoon. That way I don't reach for something worse - candy, chips, cookies in the breakroom. Couple of teaspoons and I'm good until I can get home.

Had a bike ride scheduled yesterday, but another flat spoiled the fun. Decided to switch wheels and put in some really heavy and longer lasting inner tubes. Discovered that what was causing some of the flats was a rear on the side of my almost new tire. Anyway, it took a while to switch wheels, cassettes and inner tubes. When finished, I was not in any mood to ride the bike so, I gave it a real good cleaning. HOOAAA!!

    There's satisfaction in having your bike look and function well, and it'll be all ready for your next ride which will be way more fun knowing it's in good working order. Right? Right!

    Redirect your efforts. When frying eggs, if a yolk breaks, quickly ask whether they want their eggs scrambled or scrambled well!

It's Saturday morning and a very dreary day. There's fog in the air so, visibility is not too good. Dangerous for cyclists. Especially me cause I don't have lights in the front of the bike. So, I'll just have to wait until it clears up a bit. But cycle I will do. HOOAAA!!

    Good call on waiting. Even with lights ... fog is just bad for peds and cyclists alike!
