Look-at-me pedals

Ged has ordered new Look pedals...and he has given the shipping company my address to avoid expensive European charges.  So I get to play with them.

You are my Sunshine

The weather is nothing short of glorious here:  80 degrees (26 C), which means sleeveless cycling jerseys.  Castelli makes good stuff.

20 miles

Putting up drywall isn't that hard

On Saturday, I spent five hours putting up drywall with Women Build, a branch of Habitat for Humanity. Giving back to the community never felt better.

I walked into the house not knowing anything about building/construction.  I mean, I've played with Legos before, so I kind of knew what I was talking about...  But seriously, spending time with 10 other women who explained things to me and showed me how to caulk stuff, score stuff and drill, was a privilege.
