When Aches Bring Joy

Casually the Spring warmth is coming.  It’s still firmly jacket season, but my bike has made it’s permanent debut.  Yesterday was my first long ride running errands and such, and my quads, butt and thighs have remembered what it’s like to spend an hour and a half on a cycle.  This ache in my legs truly signals Spring and Summer for me.  It’s weird to associate joy with such a physical ache – but hey, we all know I’m a bit off my rocker anyway.

Things To Do At A Bus Stop

When waiting for a bus you can:

a) Check your email, facebook, and twitter.
b) Take outfit photos
c) Have melting snow slowly drip on your head
d) All of the above

Thanks to Android phone apps, I was able to see that I had 15 minutes before my intended bus arrived at the stop.  So, spotting a nearby obliging alley I decided to abandon option ‘c’ and instead retrieve my mini tripod, to do option ‘b.’  That still left me option ‘a’ with which to kill the last four minutes.

If you were in any of the gazillion cars that witnessed this, I’m not crazy, just a blogger…which is often easily interchangeable.

At Mom’s House

When I’m at my mom’s house I just want to sit and chill in comfy sweaters and under cozy blankets.  So that’s what I did, when I wasn’t running around after a little toddler obsessed with the piano.  I kind of miss the days when I was the kid when I came home, and just had the chance to laze and lounge.  That’s no longer the case as I have my own little one, though it is fun to see her oooh and aaah at the big Christmas tree.

And her obsession with Grandpa does help to give me some time to myself.

The Long Goodbye

These pictures are from a few days ago, and I’m sad to say that I’ve lost these boots.  They are peeling now.  The faux leather top layer is literally coming away from the rest of the boot.  So they’re going in the garbage. I’m really sad to see them go especially as they’re only ten months old, but there’s no fixing something like that.

Saying goodbye to a pair of shoes is sort of like saying goodbye to an old friend.   I find that you wear shoes more than certain pieces in your closet, and so there’s a lot of sentimentality attached to that item.  We’ve been through good and bad, and it feels like a kind of betrayal to just toss them out.

But at the same time, they are just an inanimate object and I am probably anthropomorphizing them just a touch too much.  

True Story:
Baby Girl is taking a bath, playing, and generally having a great time.  
Suddenly she stops, looks at me dead serious and says, “Grandma stinky.  Stiiiiinky.”  
I don’t know where that come from, but I bet there’s a story there.
