It has been unseasonably nice here in the last couple weeks. Hi temperatures in the 70’s, even 80’s, when the average is closer to 50. Everyone has been out on the weekends, starting their spring routine yard work. But, that was just a taste.
Today the high is supposed to be in the 40’s and rain all day. Luckily for me, after we got back from K-State with Bromont, I had enough time to finish up putting compost into the garden and tilling it in. Then I planted alot of early season vegetables-chard, spinach, lettuce, mesclun, etc. It is nearly early spring here, close enough, so these should do alright.
Bromont had a great check-up yesterday. His pneumonia is completely gone on the x-rays. So, we cut back the antibiotics. He seems to have more energy, but he’s only eating double cheeseburgers from McDonalds. Hopefully he’ll get a hankering for dog food again, but I’ll feed him cheeseburgers if that what he wants to eat. We don’t have to go back for three weeks.
I got in a “good” ride yesterday. On Tuesdays, the local club sort of just blows off riding. Well, they ride, but like 15 miles on the bike path, and then meet for $3 beer at PT’s. I’ve never done the ride, but sometimes meet up after.
I was pretty beat after hauling compost all afternoon. The weather had already switched and the wind was fairly brisk, around 20 mph, for the northeast. I had ear buds in, and was planning on riding an hour and a half. But I got in more, maybe 2:15. I tried to ride pretty hard, but ended up sort of bonking the last 20 minutes or so. I only ate a couple donuts for lunch, so guess I ran out of juice.
I don’t really feel sick now, but am really run down by allergies. I can feel it. First thing in the morning, the first step, I can tell. I’ve got too much other stuff going on to be worrying about riding good or bad right now, so it is what it is.
Glad the NCAA tournament has started. Always a good method to pass some time. Plus, Milan-San Remo is on Sunday. So, good sports viewing.
It is supposed to get nice again by the weekend. Back into the 70’s, which seems normal now, but really is a treat.
