Our neighborhood park got a playground makeover this year. We only went a couple of times, but we're excited for next year.
Thanks to Jarrod's photo on facebook, I learned a better method for transporting leaves. Sadly, I didn't learn it until I was about 70% done. The trick is to rake the leaves onto a tarp. I had been cramming them into leaf bags. Productivity is up about 50%.
She used to ask us to tell her about her dreams and get really upset when we didn't know what happened. I can relate to Pharoah's magicians, and there doesn't seem to be a Joseph around. We're pleased that she hasn't thrown us in the dungeon yet.
Finally, I participated in the 2nd annual Joker's Jaunt. I hung with the lead pack through the roughest stretch of road (where I got dropped last year). But I got dropped by Jeff (and Larry) when he ramped up the pace into the wind with about 3 miles to go. I feel silly writing that (how can you get dropped in a headwind???). So here are some excuses: (1) I rarely ride more than 30 miles in a day (2) Jeff and Larry are both pretty small on a bike, so there isn't much draft to catch. Plus they ride fast, (3) I really worked hard on the bad stretch of road and every other time Larry and Jeff rode hard, and (4) I should have eaten more.
