Good Morning Friends~ I hope you had a spectacular weekend and that your day has started off with joy, if not joy than maybe just a great attitude. This morning Kam and I went on a 12 mile bike ride; we are trying to push it a bit more each day but I'm not sure that once we start riding the 13 mile path daily what we will do to increase it, as it ends there. This little cabin is tucked behind the other old building I shared last week. I'm amazed these structures are still standing. I can tell you that my legs let me know we rode 20 miles on Saturday; I judge my strength by the difficulty in getting up a couple of hills. I can feel the progress but want to be able to take those hills without being so winded and tired afterwards. When we got home we took the two pups for a walk; it had already gotten hot. I'm thankful that I don't have to see anyone after our rides and walk because I really need to jump in a cold shower.
This is the second time we've seen a snake on the path. I didn't see this guy but Kam doesn't like snakes and she let me know. I stopped and got close enough for this photo; although he looks like a Rattle snake, I believe he is a Bull snake because he wasn't warning me away with rattles. I didn't get close enough for him to strike; I don't mind snakes but I'm really not that stupid. This guy wasn't a baby and I would venture to say he was probably between four feet and five. Since we are riding at a pretty good pace, I don't carry my camera but it is making me think about our old camera that is small and might be manageable.
I finish quilting the baby quilt and hope to make the binding today. I will post photos of the quilt when it is finished.
Here is a question on a random topic-for those of you who travel a lot, do you have a Visa that you get miles from your purchases? I am taking a survey on which credit card is the best; we used to have a United Airlines visa but closed it-my big mistake because the card we used to have is no longer offered. . Now we have Alaskan Air and their benefits aren't near as good as we used to have. I got a Capital One Venture card flyer and it looks pretty good-just don't know how well it works for any airline. If you have one like this, let me know as I'd be interested in your experience.
Blessings on your day!
