Bicycle Ride to the Library

Must be Tuesday as I jumped on my bicycle at noon and headed down to shelve media items. Shelving movie and music discs is not a task for the goal orientated. It is very much something that is a journey rather than a destination. Get those items out there so they can go right back out again. Books, for the most part, move at a slower pace due to their longer check-out times and also that a lot of library patrons come in just for the media items.

The weather was excellent for bicycle riding today. It was just a bit breezy rather than being actually windy and I flew down 7th Avenue. Last Friday when I was doing bookdrop at the library it was terribly gusty and while good for me the ride was not nearly as fun.

I think it helps to make me feel better to ride to the library every few days. It gives me both a reason to get out and makes me feel alive. The only downside to the ride today was that I forgot my wallet at home so I had to beg money from Richard to buy meat for tonight's dinner. I am going to make something dead simple. Pork chops under the broiler with Brussels Sprouts and carrots on the side sounds good. It is about time to work on that so adieu until I have time to write after dinner.

Dinner sounds yummy. I've been looking forward to getting the bike out again, too, and I think this weekend will be a good chance. Tried a couple of weeks ago and darn near froze a lung!

I ride to the library on cold days as well. I don't want to spend the money on gasoline. Because I'm a cheap bastard when it comes to cars. I regard every dollar I spend on transportation a buck wasted. I could have spent that money on beer!
