…and boy are my arms tired.

So today was national bike to work day. Every year, millions of people hop on their bike to save gas and commute to work. As most of you know, I ride in the BikeMS ride every year. Thanks to everyone that supports me. I have not ridden my bike since last years ride in october.

I got up early and got everything ready. I was going to have Angie take the truck with her today, but alas it had one flat tire and the battery was dead 🙁 That’s what I get for not driving it for 3 months. I found this solar power charger that I am buying to make sure this never happens again.

I packed my bag and headed out to work. My commute is about 15 miles each way. The ride in was semi-uneventful. I did see a dead snake in the bike path on my way out of Tierrasanta. I stopped at the Qualcomm rest stop just before my work for a quick drink (They didn’t have any t-shirts this year).

The ride home was just as uneventful, but it was super hot. It’s going to be one of the hottest weekends.

Tonight we went out to dinner and the movies. We saw Iron Man. What a fantastic movie! The story pretty much stayed true to the comic book, just changing the locations and situation for the modern day. There are a ton of Marvel movies coming out. And a new Avengers movie that brings all the characters together. I guess with a lack of talent in hollywood to write original scripts they have turned to pulp-comics for stories. (Take that Mrs Wrin! My high school english teacher who though comics were trash and a waste of time.)

This weekend will be filled with lots of work in the yard. Hopefully we get the rest of the DG moved into the back of the yard. Once I have all the borders installed and the DG moved I can start tamping it down and making it solid. After this is done, it’s time to start laying track. Look or new photos soon.

Oh BTW, I was looking at my creepers and the thyme is growing great. It has grown 1.5 inches in 2 weeks. it’s really going to cover the area nicely. Also, the white star creeper has taken hold and looks great. I will try and plant the irish moss this weekend as well, along with the new alberta spruces I bought last weekend.
