And the slug scurries back out of the rain

The rain has returned. And I carried my gym clothes back and forth to work today, never setting foot in the gym.

But, I tracked my food today and have already planned all my meals for tomorrow. So, that's a good thing. And not eating too much at dinner means I should be in good shape for some yoga tonight.

What else? I learned all about raw milk and cheese making at a local eaters event last night. I've found local grass fed milk, and may take a trek to find the raw milk.

So, I just watched the Biggest Loser which made me cry, again, but now my dinner is digested so I'm going to do some yoga.

And I should probably stop referring to myself as a slug.

The Slug Peers Out Into The Bright Sunlight

Spring is here! It always returns.

I went for my second bike ride of the season today. I went on Wed. on the mountain bike which is heavy and sluggish (a bit like me). But a half hour later my lungs and legs were feeling primed for a spring and summer of flying down the road ways.

Today's ride was on my 10-speed, which is almost 20 years old. I bought it in high school and in the intervenening years I have replaced the seat (post broke going over a pot hole in California), the wheels (stolen when I lived in a sketchy apartment building in CA), the sprockets and brakes and cables and chain (sort of necessary after 20 years). It rides like a dream now and brings me much joy.

Yesterday was more sun and walking 6 miles around Boston. My poor feet have blisters on the bottom despite my good choice of footwear. I want to go to YogaDance tonight and am hoping that I can dance ok despite my injuries.

I have a brisket to cook and want to make this lentil and eggplant dish and hang all the bed clothes out on the line to freshen up in the sun.

Happy Spring!
