Wednesday: Happy Birthday to Me. Got lots and lots of birthday wishes via fb and email as well as snail mail. Nice.
Alan and I got out for a ride today too (four days in a row for me). Ended up riding 19 miles. Bonus: Saw a golden eagle stuggling to get out of the bush and flying right in front of us! Guessing it had a ‘catch’ which is why it was there in the first place and why it had to struggle in the second place. I think we surprised it. It flew behind some trees and then came back while we were still there. Pretty awesome!
Buck and Jo took us out to The Grill for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Very nice of them. Even with the triple berry cobbler ala mode, I’m still on track to lose weight this week.
Thursday: Up early. Woke up at 4:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep. Finally got up at 5:45. Packed up the car and headed down the hill. Stopped in Livermore to do a deal. A cycling deal, silly. A friend had some knee warmers to sell and I’ve been wanting some.
Picked up Dan’s Guerciotti at The Bicycle Garage and got him some new pedals. Total bill with the other new stuff - $220. Ouch.
