Mrs. Oregon Coast Cyclist!

Wow… I totally fell off the regular blog post wagon!!!

I went back and took a look at the last post, and all the photos I have taken since then.  Yep it has been awhile!

I think though you will see that with all the events that have been happening, that the delay is understandable.

So, lets make sure we cover the important parts first. Michelle and I are healthy and still working. Our jobs can be annoying, as all work can be, but we are thankful we are working when so many aren’t.

The scary part around here is we are opening up to the world next week. Hotels open and the folks from the big cities, with a much greater frequency of Covid, will be flooding the town. Add to it, some just aren’t intelligent enough to understand how masking up can help (even though it was proven in the Spanish flu 100 years ago.) We could be in for a rough summer. Michelle and I plan to hunker over the upcoming weekends.

We made a point to take advantage of the time…

This has not been a normal week so far

So here it is, Friday, and it has already NOT been a normal week!  To understand though, it would probably be best if I explained what I mean by normal.

On most weeks, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, I ride the bike home, usually leaving about 3:30.  Tuesdays, I head south to spend dinner with  the Manchild then play pool (or like last week, ping pong).  Fridays are a toss-up.  If it’s a kid weekend, I wait for him to show up and we drive home.  If it’s not a kid weekend, I get an extra ride.

This week, so far Monday and Tuesday have NOT fit that mold. Continue reading “This has not been a normal week so far”

NOT a normal day

Ever notice that work days all seem to blur together?  Get up about the same time, get ready the way you normally to (Shower, shave, brush teeth etc).  Then leave about the same time each morning and head to work along the same route.

Then there is the daily at work steps during the day.  Saying hi to people, maybe breakfast, checking email, sneaking out to look at Facebook, and getting the morning dose of your favorite caffeinated beverage to kick-start the heart.

Then there is the work you do each day until lunch, followed by the afternoon tasks till its time to go home. Finally the ride or drive home.  Yep it all blurs together.

Today was NOT that day… Continue reading “NOT a normal day”
