I bought a new bike yesterday, and it was a sad, sad day in Janice Land when the only bike with the features I wanted was pink. If you look closely down near the pedal, there are rainbow coloured circles, and it says “SWEET”. Hopefully after I get a black seat cover and handles, it won’t look so much like Strawberry Shortcake should be riding it on her way to a tea party with Barbie. The good news is it has gears, which my old bike didn’t. It was like riding around with the bike in 6th gear. I’ve also provided a close-up of some nifty accessories I got in Japan, including an umbrella holder and a cover for my basket (so certain hoodlums around here don’t confuse my basket with a trash can). I’ve also got a light on the front that runs on the power I generate by pedaling.
I missed a good photo opportunity earlier this evening when both cats in my house were treated to a nice shampoo and shower. They were too quick for me afterwards and rushed off to lick themselves dry in private before I could capture their sad, soaked, scrawny selves on camera. Now I have to very soft, sweet smelling kitties who aren’t talking to me this evening.
That’s all for this hot and humid evening, and I promise never to post in this colour again.
