It’s tough to get everything done that needs to be done sometimes. Shop, home chores, chicken watching, dog sitting all required my attention this weekend. The weather was supposed to be foul, so I grabbed Weapon X and snuck in a ride first thing on Friday morning before heading to the shop. It went a little something like this:
Then it was rain, rain, rain on Saturday, making it a great day for doing things off the bike. Like clean my apartment. Only I’m a wicked procrastinator, and I took a nap and watched baseball on TV instead, knowing full well that the weather tomorrow was going to be more of the same.
Except it wasn’t. No. Instead, it was nice and sunny, and the perfect temp to go out and ride my road bike for a long ride, something I had tried to get on earlier in the week but got shut down 4 miles out by some big scary looking clouds. I barely made it back before the skies opened. Well, darn it. I had a boatload of laundry to do, my apartment to clean, and was kid free, so I tackled the impossible catastrophe that is my home. It literally took all day, and I was actually able to stay surprisingly focused and didn’t crack my first beer until I put the vacuum cleaner away.
Seems like the rain was waiting until nightfall, and now everything is wet again. But at least my laundry is done and my apartment is clean.
