what a great weekend. the weather was nice and we were able to get out and do some fun things. saturday we hit the verona library and got a new set of books that we will be very sick of by the due date. then, we re-filled our coffee cups and headed to black earth to do some meat shopping. we love meat but are both becoming a little more sensitive to the treatment of the animals and the quality of the meat so we are opting to eat less of it but spend more on what we do eat. that place is the best - local, sustainable, delicious! headed back home and i got out for a ride on the motobecane (capital city trail, sw commuter trail). beautiful day for a ride and the 36x16 was a very nice gear for the paths.

sunday we took cal to the madison model railroad show (which he loved). i got out for another ride in the afternoon - badger trail to some roads around verona. the gearing was a little steep for some of the hills i encountered but that is good. i am always amazed at how much more tired i am after riding outdoors and by 10 i was feeling pretty whooped.

this week should be good. i am still looking for my chance to take a 'mental health' day but i keep running into road blocks at work. i'm hoping to ride into work a few days (maybe wednesday and thursday) and then we are heading to the twin cities to visit friends this weekend. then it is march and my birthday the following weekend. in a few days i'll be closer to 50 than to 20 - yikes!

happy monday.
