Beaching Along, and Biking

Happy Friday, friends! Is it just me, or has this been a really long week for everyone? Fortunately I have some good stuff to look forward to: my Beach House has just half of a front left before it's done! Which means it's definitely on track to be done today, and now I need to decide what to work on this weekend. Tomorrow I'll have about four hours in the car, plus several hours in concerts, so I'll probably want a variety. I'm really tempted to pull Que Sera out of hibernation for the car at least, though I might need a sock or something for the actual concerts.

I'm mulling around some cowl ideas for that blue-purple-greenish skein up there. I've had it in my stash for years, and I really love the colors too much to keep it cooped up in a bin much longer.

Yesterday I did a training ride for the Tour de Cure on my stationary bike-it was just too cold for my pathetic little lungs to want to bike outside. I rode foe 100 minutes, because I'm concerned about the psychology of staying in the saddle for a long ride. My Tour route is 50 miles, which could take 3.5 to 4.5 hours, and that's a lot of time on a bike. Yesterday's ride felt really good, but I cheated a lot and sat up to give my hands a break, which won't be an option during the actual Tour.


  1. Padded bike shorts, your butt will thank you! My husband rides from Seattle to Portland and would probably die without the butt padding.

  2. Good luck Kat! When is the Tour de Cure? It's awesome you're riding for it :)

  3. It was indeed a long week for everyone it seems. Hope you had a lovely weekend and good luck with the bike training!
