Adrian & I had a great time biking this morning! The rain stayed away, so we were happy about that. I loved exploring a new area of Eau Claire! It was amazing to see the Chippewa River, lots of old buildings & warehouses, coffee shops, antique stores, two beautiful parks, etc. Awesome!!

Here's a few photos:

We are both exhausted =]

We've grilled out & plan to take Harlowe for a walk in a bit.

Then we'll watch tv a bit before we crash!

What are you guys up to this evening?

Have a great night, friends!!

It is such a blast to explore while bike riding. While we are at the lake we have our "speed demons" racing around while we go at a very leisure pace. Nothing wrong with speeding around, they are getting their workout in! With us we get a workout but it's just so nice to take it easy and really soak up the atmosphere around us. Every speedy bike passes us on the trail while we take our time looking at everything from ducks, birds, squirrels, boats, trees, everyone walking their dogs and more. We sometimes stop to meet people, especially the ones with dogs! I am always wanting to stop to pet the doggies! We also stop at the dog park and watch the dogs play. Then we take a break to have our light lunch then continue the bike ride. We have our cheap little Huffy bikes while most are on their bikes that cost 500 bucks and up! I don't mind, I love my purple bike!


It sounds like you both had an amazing time. I am looking forward to hearing more stories you have on you and your hubby's bike ride!


For those of you who haven't seen my bike, here it is! Yes, it might be tacky to some but I just love it! One day while riding around the lake I heard someone say, "wow, look at that purple bike"! Not sure if they were making fun of it, or liked it but if they didn't like it, I don't care.

All this talk of bike riding and Wayne and I didn't even make it out for one yesterday. I have felt completely wiped out the past few days and was just way too tired to go. We ran all our errands, went out to lunch and were home by 2:30. We ended up laying around the rest of the day watching TV and playing each other, Words with Friends between, Wayne, my daughter and I on our phones. I kept attempting to get up throughout the day but just felt terrible and laid back down. Wayne said he was feeling really tired too. I guess it's okay to have one of those days occasionally!

Today I will be skipping church but Wayne might end up going without me. I have a very busy day at work and slept in today to be rested up for it. I don't want to feel like I have the past few days. So far I feel pretty good!

Have a Merry Day my Christmas Friends!

Good morning!
It is going to be cloudy today, with scattered showers and a high of 62. Two of my girls are supposed to go in to work but they may not have to if it keeps raining. They will call their jobs a little later on to find out. No big plans for me today. If the girls are all home from work I would love to take them out shopping and then go visit my parents. Then back home to make spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.
I hope everyone has a very happy Sunday!!!
