Tomorrow The Season Begins

Spent the morning working on the old house and it is finally getting near done.  New flooring, drywall and paint make a huge difference.  Carpeting should be installed in week or so and then we are done until Summer when we paint the outside.

In the meantime there are still piles of snow everywhere but Spring is in the air.  I’ve missed the first two rides of the Silver Wheels Cycling Club due to the house, The Chili Weiner Ride and the Pi Ride.  With the house done there is no excuse not to be on the bike. Tomorrow the high is 65°F and once I’m on the bike I’ll try to do it as often as possible.


It says it will be 47ºF today but as of right now it is 39ºF and feels much colder.  I’ll ride tomorrow and as many days as I can after that.  From the looks of it there is no rain in the forecast, that is good.

Forgot to mention.  I took the Garmin in my car as a test.  I took it out to Chatham where I had a poker tournament.  It said that the elevation there was 450 higher than my house.  That would explain the Ride to Chatham post.

Day 80: Spring Arrives

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see rather results of their love!
Sitting Bull

Today is the first day of Spring and I took my mother to McDonald’s to see her friends.  I go three days a week and play chess, write, or play the banjo while she’s in there for her two to three hours.  Today I played the banjo.

This blog is not just about my weight, it’s about my overall health, including my mental and emotional health.  My mother is ready to die.  She is in pain a great deal of time and tired all of the time.  She has already survived two husbands and three of her children.  She’s ready.

It’s been too long since I’ve felt warm sunshine on my face.  Today sitting in the parking lot it was 30F with dark clouds and snow falling all around me.  Spring will come.  My spirits will lift.

The deep roots never doubt spring will come

Spring is only fifteen days away.  I checked the weather and it will be in the high forties very soon.  That is warm enough to get on the bike.
