I love days when things run smoothly and its productive. Most weeks are like that. I think this particular was extra special because it started out with a bike ride to the office with John. Traffic was very minimal, the weather was perfect, and no one tried to smoke us out with the exhaust of their diesel truck. Upon arrival on campus, we had plenty of time to sit down for coffee and pastries before I needed to head up to the office.
Commuting by bicycle is actually faster for me than driving, parking downtown, and walking the remaining .75 miles. I clocked one hour in the saddle today; more of a workout than walking and the fresh air sure beats pounding the treadmill indoors at the gym (don't get me wrong, I still love running). The best part is I get quality time with John during our rides to campus and today, he rode back to my office at the end of the day to pedal with me home.
in an earlier post). Because a friend had me thinking about a jalapeño pimento cheese on sourdough grilled sandwich she makes for her family, now was my chance to try the Pepper Popper (which is cheddar cheese, cream cheese, fresh jalapeño peppers on sourdough). The bacon was added for $2 extra. Need I tell you that is a winning combination with garlic fries to top it off. Next time, however, I'm going to pack my own pimento!
Anyway just when I thought I was in trouble, my boss offered to talk to the right folks about installing a bike locker behind our building!! I had already looked into renting a bike locker but was put on a waiting list because there are none available and the closest one is several buildings away. Campus is pretty safe; so many students and faculty ride their bikes around I'm not too concerned about my bike getting stolen but it will be nice to have a locker to keep it out of the outdoor elements all day.
finally what's a post without a report from Havi or Elgy? They enjoyed sunbathing on the windowsill and also had a quality day.
I wish this day would last a little longer but all good things must get some rest, right? Tomorrow is the start of a new day and I can't wait to discover the gifts it brings!
