Here are the hard core racers lining up to start. A couple years ago when I first stumbled upon this little world of daredevils who ride around in the woods at high speeds I had no idea I'd actually get to know a number of these guys. I am still in awe of what they can do, but have accepted my "place" in this world-- as a purely for-fun, recreational rider. No more racy aspirations here.
Oh-- This happened yesterday-- A burst of unlikely color in my kitchen.
I found this pic on Pinterest and just love it. It makes me so look forward to the summer ahead and all the great times I want to have with my friends. For now, I'll get back to enjoying winter, when there are absolutely no bugs, and lots of other fun things to do. :)
