Start the day out right!

Mmm, now this is the way to start the day… a fresh-made belgian waffle, topped with a pile of fresh organic strawberries, and a dollop of whipped cream.


Cinco de Mayo

Yawn… just got back from Cinco de Mayo party at Jake and Paola’s. As usual, Jake had a great spread of food. I had so much to eat, I’m stuffed. And so much to drink, I’m wobbly…

Took a few photos.

We sat around a fire outside, so I came home permeated with the smell of smoke.


Mmmm, had a busy day… now I’m ready for some serious sleep.

Maybe go see Spider-man 3 tomorrow.

Now, bed.

Free Comic Book Day

Went to That’s Entertainment to check out Free Comic Book Day… picked up some free comics, bought a graphic novel (book 2 of Walking Dead), perused the shelves.


That’s Entertainment is always fun to wander, they have lots of random memorabilia along with all the comics.

Rail Trail

I went with Ben and his family on a rail trail ride this morning. I overslept and almost missed it, but got up just in time to scramble out the door and get there 10 minutes late.

It was really sunny when I left, so I only wore a t-shirt… it got overcast after that, and was slightly chilly, but not bad, still pretty nice weather.

The ride was nice and easy, since it was a family ride – slow, and only 10.5 miles – the perfect first ride of the year. Ben’s also doing another ride tomorrow, but that one’s more hardcore, and at 7am. Even if I were in shape for that, which I’m not sure of, I had enough trouble getting to the 10am ride this morning.

I took a bunch of pictures, mostly while riding, so they’re probably a bit blurry and badly composed.

Now I’m taking a little break, having a cup of coffee, and then I think I’ll go over to That’s Entertainment and check out Free Comic Book Day.
