Me Time

Share

The sun is playing games with me this morning and hasn’t come long out enough to convince me that I should go to aqua-fit class. I think I’ll enjoy some me time instead.

Still undecided on what to do. My first choices so far are between reading tai chi and travel magazines. Crossing a few things off my list.

I’m quietly walking away from my computer now, so will leave you with some great travel info…

LM pointed out some great flight deals at continental this morning in mini chat. I went to check it out to see if it was worth posting, and there are some deals out of Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and Portland – all under $300.

More to come…

After taking an hour to myself to quietly think about things and see what ideas pop into my head, I decided to cross something off my list – Dental clinic pics and info are up. Sent in by Bonnie and Sharon, two of our aqua-fit girls, and Valentines post with pics by Wonder Woman.

This afternoon we had to go to town and run a few errands. One of which was getting myself a new bike. When we got to the store and I picked one out, I noticed it had a big scratch in the frame, and they said they didn’t have another one in the same color. I could have sworn I heard the guy say to another lady he could build her one in the same color, but I didn’t bother to argue.

The guy at the store said he could put the bigger tires on a different blue frame to make the bike the same size for me, and I actually liked the color on the frame he was willing to switch tires on better, but something was not sitting right. He assured me the frames were the same size and it was just the tires that made it look smaller.

I almost got bamboozled and fell for it, but having done renovations in a previous life, I learned to use whatever is handy to measure something. So I un-clipped one side of my camera strap, and measured from seat post to crank on both bikes, and bingo, I was right. They were off by about 2 inches. I ended up taking the original bike with new handle bars that help you sit upright.
