I had one of the best nights of sleep that I've had in a long time. No aches or pains, no waking up with thousands of ideas flowing through my head. Just one long continuous sleep! Yeah! Now, if we could only bottle that and make it happen every night, that would be awesome!
Somehow, the stars are NOT aligned at my house, and I will be happy when today is over. Why? Well, have a look.
On Friday night, I was reading on our deck. It started to spit a bit of rain, so I decided to move to the gazebo. I'm moving all my stuff in and had to open up the lawn chair when CRASH! I knocked over the small table that I had placed my things on, and I broke my FAVORITE glass.

No, it couldn't be any crappy glass that we have - it was my favorite one! So I made a new rule - drink out of the crappy glasses, especially when I'm outside. Of course, I could have easily broken that glass in the house. It was time to say goodbye to the glass. We don't have tons of glasses in our house, and I'm not about to buy new ones. We're using up what we have, and I kind of doubt that we'll ever have to buy new ones. I'm OK with that.
If it ended there, I would have been happy, but it did not.
Yesterday was a glorious day, and I had NOT been out on my bike yet this year. There is always something scheduled in my calendar. So with nothing on the calendar until 12:30, I pumped up the tires, changed into my cycling gear, and I was off.
There were tons of cyclists out yesterday, and the car traffic was very respectful. WOW!! I had one embarrassing moment. There is a steep but short hill on my route, and of course, as I'm slogging my way up that hill, I'm passed by a bunch of guys who whiz past me. Could they not have passed me when I was at least rolling merrily along? Nope - on the hill!!
Things were going along just fine when suddenly, I heard a loud clicking sound, and I could see something in my front tire. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I stopped, and sure enough, there was a short screw sticking out of my tire. CRAP!!!! I wasn't sure how far it had driven through my tires (I have high-quality tires on that bike), and I managed about 2 more KM, and then my tire was flat.
