Saddle sore but lovin' it!

I'll probably be a little saddle sore tomorrow, but OH MY GOSH it was good to be back on a bike again this morning! We're having lovely weather around here this week (hopefully we've finally bid adieu to winter), so I took advantage of it to start biking to work again. Unless you've lived through a long hard winter, I don't know if you can understand just how good/refreshing/invigorating/like-getting-sprung-from-prison Spring can feel. Wow!

And all that exercise I've been doing all winter? All that exercise that felt like it was doing no good because I wasn't losing weight and it didn't seem to get any easier to run on the treadmill no matter how long I stuck with it? Yeah, well, apparently I'm in better shape than I thought, because I did those 11 kilometers without barely breakin' a sweat AND I did them 5 km/h faster than I usually do at the beginning of the season! Sweet!

Last night we were outside until almost 9:00 at night, and Maddie and her cousin were still in t-shirts. By the end of it, they were both soaking wet and sloshing around in rubber boots full of water (finding puddles that were a little deeper than their boots seemed like a good idea at the time), but, other than one unfortunate "swimming" incident, they were both deliriously happy, and when they climbed into bed together, they were in dreamland almost before I could leave the room.

I heart Spring.

I just told someone how happy my nephews were to be playing outside this week - it was like they were just let out of prison!! (great minds and all?)

I heart spring too...

today was gorgeous here -- and I got to wear a t-shirt outside.
(I only shivered a couple of times when the sun went behind the cloud)

I remember mud puddles being so much fun.

I still havent bought a new bike. The neighbor down the street has invited me to ride with her and some others around the block -- but I need a recumbant.
