Hump Day Miscellany – the Holiday Edition

Who wouldda thunk?
Who would have guessed that you can shuffle while riding a bike? I’m not talking about iPod shuffle, I’m talking about shuffling along, not working very hard. Apparently that’s what I was doing. Coach Bold suggested I focus on lifting my knees. I thought that odd as how else can you pedal but to lift your knees but I tried it and he was right! I just wasn’t putting enough oomph in the lifting and thus, I was shuffling. I spent some time doing one legged drills with lifting oomph and OUCH! But it hurt so good and I’m looking forward to becoming a better rider as I get better at giving my stroke the powah!

Home for the Holidays

2/3 of my kids are here and the final 1/3 arrives Saturday, fianc้ in tow. Young son’s girlfriend will also arrive. I am SO excited to have everyone here this year. We are having breakfast with my ex and his parents and then we just sit around and wait for any of our friends who want to join us to show up.

Time to Bake Cookies
I made cookie dough Sunday night and still haven’t had time to roll it out, cut it and bake it into cookies. Once I get there the holiday season will be official.

I hope everyone is ready to engage in holiday goodness. Peace and love to you and yours.

    “Fiance” is so outdated, don’t you think? I prefer to refer to him as my “fiacre,” or perhaps “financier,” although that’s more or less wishful thinking at this point. Can’t wait for Saturday. Save some cookie baking for me!
