A Bike Ride
Yesterday hubby and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather and go for a bike ride. We are blessed to have paved trails near our home that connect three towns. We checked our air pressure for our tires and filled our water bottles and set off. I have to tell you that we had a leisurely ride and had a very relaxed pace. About a quarter of the way we noticed a cow on the trail, next to her pasture. We didn't see a gate and didn't know how she got there but were concerned that she might wander up to the road so my husband, my hero, held the barbed wire fence and got her back through to the other side. Actually she was trying to get away from us, as this silly woman talked to her about going back to her friends. She finally jumped through and ran off to be with the herd. We continued on our way but the whole time all I could think was "My Husband Rocks". We saw a lot of birds, two eagles nests and also a Muskrat swimming with a snake in his mouth. Of course we didn't have the camera as I worry about dropping it and ruining the new lens. So next time we ride we will have that with us as well as binoculars. This nana is out of shape and a bit heavier than I'd like so I'm hoping to get into shape and ride it on a regular basis. What is amazing to me is that we rode approximately 14 miles round trip-how's that for exercise.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
