Have been thinking about riding the bike lately, but of course we had snow on the ground for more than a month. Because of my weight and because I have only ridden a few times in many years, I have enough trouble controlling the bike on clear roads. I might kill myself in snow, ice, or slush. Now the roads are clear, and I've seen some hardy people on their bicycles, but the temperatures are just still way too cold for me. I guess I don't have the necessary clothes to wear. I'll wait and see how the roads are toward the end of the month.
I expect to be going to help my sister. Her husband has been in the hospital in intensive care for two weeks with double pneumonia. I went last week for 3 days to help with house and pet sitting. Their 2 dogs need to go out around 4 pm. It's not a bad trip, and I like to help her if I can. She's helped me out several times before, too. She is continuing to teach her English classes.
