Enjoying the Spring

Chicago spring is still a bit chilly but overall chill (see how I word-played there?).  Most of my rides have been nice and calm on the side-streets and I’ve been taking time to hang out with friends, read books, drink cocktails, and just enjoy life with Mr. Dottie.

I need to get working on spring cleaning, including taking Betty Foy in for a much-needed tune-up (am I the only one who totally destroys her bike during fall and winter??).  But, you know, whenever…

I hope everyone else is enjoying the spring, too!

    Dottie –
    You sound so….relaxed.
    Must assume you have no JP Morgan/Chase stock – although that might lead to more cocktails  –  HA!

    You are definitely not the only one who destroys their bike in the winter. Every spring I have to beg the nice guys at my bike shop to take on the winter rust and grime and make my bike pretty and functional again.

    Winter is harsh on my bikes too.  I couldn’t get myself to ‘wreck’ Baxter even though I know that the bike shops would keep him going!  I have a bike just for Winter!  I am so glad that it’s Spring though…loving it!

      Baxter, love that name.  :)

      Typically, I put Betty Foy away for winter and let Oma do the hard work, but last winter I ended up riding Betty Foy almost the whole time, since the weather was so mild and there was barely any snow. 

  4. I’m glad spring has arrived, bringing sunshine and fun rides!
