Twilight Ride & Roadkill

I was going to say "In honor of my recent one-week fetish with the four Twilight books..." - but in reality it is:  I worked a  helluva long day (more productive than I've been in weeks) and got caught up on a few things workwise.  Got home kinda late and snuck out for a bike ride as the sun was getting pretty low in the sky, but my guys were nowhere to be seen (out and about in the neighborhood). 

I rode for 45 min and got in 10.15 mi.  I'm pretty tickled with that.  I had thought it was closer to 9.  Got to smell a very rotten deer as I scared off like 8 turkey buzzards from it and rode past one almost unrecognizable skunk that had been flattened (smelled last night on our run, but not so much today).  Ah, the joys of living on the edge of town.

This week I've found a few more bruises from the bike spill the other day.  My husband pointed one more on my right arm that I hadn't noticed.  He's like "Yeah, don't go wearing anything to revealing or someone might come to question me about beating you up."  LOL  I managed to ride tonight without incident. 

Tomorrow will be another day of insane driving - 3 hours there and then 3 hours back for what is likely to be less than an hour in between (burying grandpa's ashes at family plot in timbucktu Missouri).  Looking forward to seeing my girl - don't like being home without being able to kiss her goodnight.  She's been having a ball with my aunt - totally getting spoiled and crafting up a storm I'm sure.  We'll see if we can get in any kind of workout before or after all that time in the car (or both).


  1. Nice ride! Life sounds awfully busy for you. Way to keep fitting in the workouts. :)

  2. As long as you wash your hands after reading Twilight, and give your brain a good scrub too, all will be well.

  3. It is always nice to look down and realize you have gone further than you thought!

  4. Whenever my wife gets a bruise (which is hardly ever , thank God), I also worry that people will think that I am the cause. I would never lay a hand on her. I really gets my blood boiling whenever I hear about men abusing women.

  5. Nice ride! Totally get your husband being worried about the bruising. When my wife gets bruises she always jokes that I need to stop hitting her (which of course I would never do) :-).
