It's only Wednesday, but I have already had two big accomplishments this week.  First and foremost, the sweater that I have been working on since October is off the needles.  Now I just need to weave in the ends, sew on the buttons, and block it.

The other accomplishment centers around my bicycle.  I bought a new bicycle and picked it up from my daughter's bike shop in March, but I have been less than consistent in actually riding it.  Sometimes that has been due to the weather, sometimes it has been hard to find the time because of gardening tasks.  Sometimes I just haven't felt like it.  I took it with me to Minneapolis over the 4th.  Lisa and I went for a bike ride, but a mile and a half in, I had a flat tire.  Yesterday I took it to The
Hub, where she works, and had it fixed.

Even loading it onto my bike rack has been challenging.  For that reason, I left it loaded on my car when I got back from Minneapolis last night, and today I went to the bike trail to ride.

I rode from Sargent Park to Copper Creek, around the lake, and back to Sargent Park.  I figure that is about six miles.  Yay, me!

I am really enjoying the peace and beauty of the bike trail.  I am so fortunate to have it so close to home.


  1. The sweater is beautiful and such a lovely color. I'm so envious of knitters. Never could get the hang of it myself. The bike trail looks like fun.

    1. I have a great yarn shop that I go to, and I take lots of classes. This was my first time doing cables. They continue to add to our bike trails, and I really want to explore them further. Thank you so much for reading my blog.
