Monday’s Bike Ride (9/06/10)
I’m in a fall mood tonight. I give the rain credit for that; any time the sun goes away and the clouds descend, it feels like a totally different place and season. I think it’s great, except when the rain lingers long enough to piddle on me while I ride a bike home. Today’s “work-out” was another biking commute. Apparently it was unnecessary for me to pedal my way to campus, as the busses were running today and the undergrads had classes. I’m a little off today! Maybe I should just do some yoga and call it a night.
But wait! I must tell you that in addition to rain, we had the most beautiful evening light. It was spectacular. I went outside twice to take skyline pictures, and the second time, there was a full-blown rainbow in the sky. I was stunned.
Can you see it? I’m afraid it was better in person, but I think it looks pretty good here too. Finally, to complement the fall mood, I baked digestive biscuits in the shape of leaves. Isn’t this one charming?
(I went a little crazy with the camera tonight. Sometimes I find inspiration everywhere, and I just can’t help myself. Maybe all the biking has made me a little nutty. I did bike an estimated 20-something miles in three days. That’s a lot. My muscles may have sucked up all my blood sugar and left me unable to restrain myself from taking pictures of everything. I’ll spare you the photos I took of my feet.)
