In the United States, yesterday was Mother’s Day.
There were flowers from Mike and Shannon,
and flowers from Dee.
The day was sunny and warm, just perfect for a bike ride, our first of the season.
We rode our usual route of eight miles, and except for some slight knee pain, it was go, go, go for me. For the past few months, I have been faithfully riding my exercise bike, and yesterday I saw the benefits of this, ahem, boring workout. It’s been a long time since I have started the biking season feeling so strong and ready to go. I am very hopeful that by midsummer, we will be going on longer bike rides.
After our bike ride, we stopped at the little park by Maranacook Lake. So green and pretty this time of year.
How to end this sunny day? With Clif’s nachos, which are far better than any we can get in central Maine.
All in all, a good Mother’s Day from beginning to end.
