Monday Musings

My favorite weather of blue skies and 60 degrees arrived this weekend and encouraged me to take my first bike ride of the season and make the reacquaintance of a few muscles I haven’t noticed in awhile.  The dog basket remained empty as

Harper has let me know that her paws are made for walkin’ along the paths and not riding.

It was wonderful to be back out on the bike again so I could admire the tulips

and irises blooming throughout the area and 

the swans were thrilled to enjoy the lake without having to keep a watchful eye on me this weekend as I recovered from the bike ride and searched for a new route without hills.

    1. I love those perfect weather days where you want to be outdoors throughout the whole day and it was wonderful to have three in a row. After our disastrous attempt at biking together, both Harper and I are happy she’s staying home to relax.🙂


  4. Good for you getting out and about. Guess you’ll have to work on Harper to get her used to riding. 😉
    Somewhat eerie photo of the swan keeping an eye on you! Watch out, ha!

    1. Thank you!🙂 I’ve had a chance to watch that swan family a few times and everything was peaceful out on the water, but since then if the male spots me along the shore he swims by and let’s me know it might be safer for me to stay out of the water. I’m looking forward to many bike rides this summer, but after Harper and I almost crashed during our very unsuccessful first attempt, we’re both happy she’s staying home.🐾🙂

  6. Surely every introvert’s dream, a peaceful lake and no-one in sight except swans. Love the bright tulips and delicate coloured iris.
