Hail? really? [23/36]

I was excited to get out and bike to work today, it's been over a week since I last had the opportunity... it was a little wet this morning, but hardly any puddles and I got there okay.  No having to change wet underwear.  That's a plus right?


However... it just opened up and the heavens poured forth heavy rain... and hail.


Nothing like a wtf moment right?


Hopefully that burst of crazy rain didn't worsen the basement issues.  We'll find out when I get home I guess.

Kiting ...and a flood runs through it [22/35]

So after a long week of rain, meaning that 2 of Dean's teeball games were cancelled, and me not being able to bike at all ... thus ruining my percentage, we got to end it on a bit of a high'er' note.

Spent part of Sunday out at Chippewa for the kite festival.  Was good fun, despite being damp and cool.

All this rain led to ... more rain!

I heard this morning that Oli-'poonge was in a state of emergency:

Facebook woes [22/32]

Ugh, I've just about had it with Facebook.

Ironic as today was a day that I helped out on a workshop on how to do it for business.

Saw a plethora of businesses today (not at the workshop though) who masquerade as a profile, add it just irked me.

Then the app is just annoying me... A lot! It's not my phone...
Speaking of my phone, I finally couldn't take it anymore and wanted on the phone about how terrible the reception had been lately.  Of course they kept saying they're working on it, but that's about it ... Well I did get a 25% off until they are supposed to be done, which is October.

That's right, they said to essentially grin and beer it until October.  Horrific.  It's been two years and they still haven't done one ounce if improvement... If anything they've gone backward.

So, yeah, Facebook sucks... My cell provider sucks...
And I haven't been able to bike this week yet (will probably not be able to bike tomorrow, and can't on Friday, so the whole week is a write off).

May Long Weekend "Stay-cation" [22/30]

Had a great after business and then a hectic scrambling for our newsletter... Which made me forget that I had a lunch meeting when I biked, so I had a good lunch biking excursion.

Ended the week subbing at Hammarskjold... not sure if I should count that against my score or not... ah, well, left it in.

So all that much in a week meant I really was looking forward to the stay-cation this weekend, we were staying at the Victoria Inn (fitting no?) with Karen and Justin (and their kids).

A good time was had... Dean even got to share his new love of Peter Pan with Alexis (after having to get the front desk guy take forever to install the replacement as the one we had wouldn't work).

photo is us hanging out by the poolside eating some Eat Local pizza (with brownies) ... Hope times

Anticipation of a storm [20/27]

My standard rule has been... if it rains when I go to bike, I'll drive.  Otherwise, bike.
unless I've got a meeting I HAVE to be at and can't bike to it


That's stuck because I hate getting to work wet... but don't mind coming home wet.

Well, today it was supposed to rain... not just rain, but thunderstorm.  So I looked at outside and it was fine this morning, and the storm was to hit around noon or 2...  so I biked.

I did the right thing, I followed my rule... the only thing was in the back of my head I knew it was going to rain and be terrible ... so I dreaded the homeward journey.

But it never came.

I think that's what made it worse... the anticipation of said storm, but just not coming... I knew it was coming, and almost regretted my choice, feared how bad it was going to be ... but in the end nothing came.

Hrmm...

Ah, well... 20/27 = 74.1%... not bad

Tomorrow is the After Business, and then maybe a band meeting after... so I have to drive.  But it gives me a chance to get some stuff done then... if it rains tomorrow, then that ruins the After Business (they want to do some outside stuff)

Gorgeous weather [19/26]

Yay, some great weather today.
14 when I left the house, and 28 when I went home.
Really starting to feel like summer... Almost

For those of you keeping track of my score you'll notice I gained 2 days in one.  This is because I had to go to a meeting on my bike today, so it was like biking 2 days' with in one.

I liked being able to do that... I won't always be able to... But it worked out, and it showed me that it is possible.  And I wasn't any extra tired out from it neither... That's encouraging!

having an awesome weekend

yeah, it almost got to 24 yesterday and Dean and I spent a great deal of it outside in the morning.


First time mowing the lawn this year
Weed wacked
Cleaned the lawn up first of all the gravel that had been shoveled onto it over the winter
Cleaned up the garden, hoed/raked it profusely
Watered with some weedstop on the lawn


Then we went over to my parents and helped them move boxes of books as they're getting some renovations done in the house, as well as got their swing out on the patio.  That thing is pretty comfy/soothing.  It was so nice out, you could easily fall asleep in it.  I really hope it does the trick for helping my dad relax over the next 6 months.






After, we had some sushi (always a good thing) and Dean and I went shopping for Mommy's day stuff.


And today is mommy's day.  What will it entail?  Aside from handing out some gifts to mommy and some Black Forest cake... maybe a BBQ at the parents.

Rounded out the week [17/25]

Yup, ended up 3/5 for the week and got my first raining on.


Plus, got some freebies to play with.






So that's good right?

snuck one in yesterday [16/24]

Yup, this was supposed to be a 'wash' for biking this week with all the rain and one of my events.

But yesterday I snuck one in, as after the event in the morning I was driving home and realized how awesome it was outside, so I drove home instead, grabbed the bike and enjoyed some wicked weather!

Today was a little cooler to bike in in the morning, but when it was supposed to rain, I'm not complaining.

16/24 is 67%... getting there.  The problem being that, yeah, I'm starting earlier than I did last year, but the ratio won't magically increase unless I actually bike those days too.
