Ride Teresa Ride! The weather was grey and cool - I almost canceled, and if I hadn't been planning on riding with my GF Holly, I would have curled up in bed. She had invited me to ride with a group of her friends. Thank goodness for workout buddies. The loop was from Harms Woods in Glenview down to North Forest Glen Ave - the current end of the North Branch Bike Path. That was ~19 miles. The group decided to stop for lunch at the Garage bar... where I only had a hamburger patty and corn cake, which proved to be a bit to rich and heavy for the ride home. How can people drink beer and then bike? IDK. Nonetheless, a good group to ride with and I will go with them again! Turned into 2+ hours on the trail :) Good for me! I am enjoying that I'm now the type of person who can, at the drop of a hat, say, Yes, I'd love to join you on a 20 + mile ride :)

Housework day... darn it, one of those things that just needs to get done every so now and then! Baked bread, swept floors, did wash, made beds, pulled weeds, cooked meals, etc. etc. That bread did me in on the calorie side - but Tomato Herb bread is so delicious! Recipe below.
