Day 14 of 30 days- almost halfway!
Another beautiful day arrived and we decided to hit up Home Depot again, to restock our seed tray supply, solve a fencing problem and generally just have a stroll around. This time we remembered to take our locks and to strap the little guy in, so that's a plus!
Last time we headed to the Depot I had to stop and have a break halfway, get a drink and rest my legs. This time, at about the same spot where we rested last time, I found myself feeling tired but managed to push through it. We think we took about 5-10 minutes of the trip and I certainly felt better and my breathing was noticeably less labored.
We got a car yesterday night, an early 90's Honda Accord and are now looking for a trunk mount bike rack for it. Somehow we have to figure out a way of getting the bikes on it, so we can drive to Portland and visit family sometime this year. Obviously a Honda Accord wouldn't be most people's first choice for a cargo bike hauling vehicle, but this car came from people we know who maintained it well and is as economical as cars generally get within our price point. Honestly, even if we could afford to spend more on a vehicle, I don't think we would opt for anything different. Why spend a lot of money on something that will sit around for 27 days of the month?
We had planned to take Beatrix with us today, but she was not happy with the idea at all and decided to stay home.
I've been wanting a composter for the garden for sometime now and today they were half price, so we grabbed one and some bamboo stakes for the fence we want to make.
Jack really loves his Home Depot shopping carts!
My next big push will be for the month of May, I want to create a challenge for myself, but I'm not sure what yet.
Tomorrow is a big day for us, it is the day of the local bike ride I've been organizing and planning for a little over a month now. I hope we get a good turnout and that this glorious weather stays for the duration of the weekend.
