Mike left early this morning to go to an antique motorcycle meet in Eustis, FL. Even though he is no longer in the business, he likes to attend a meet just to catch up with old friends and acquaintances. I joked about his trip giving me a day off--even though it was of course a day pretty much like any other.
I had coffee and read the paper, did the puzzles, emptied the dishwasher, and mopped the kitchen floor. Ususally I like to get all the housework done on Friday, but not if Mike is out having fun.
So finished the book I was reading, The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue. From the reviews I read, this is a book one either loves or hates. I loved it. It is based on an actual divorce case in 1860's London. Although it is a work of fiction, the stained yellow dress and the question of a woman having sex with a man while the man is not having sex with the woman were actually part of the court records from the time. History repeats and repeats.
I went shopping and bought a darling orange sweater with polka dots.
I got in my long bike ride today--two hours of steady pedaling. There are just so many areas to explore around here. I went at least fifteen miles, not a bad little cruise.
I was tempted to go get a pedicure. I don't care about having my toenails polished, but the massage chair and the hot stone massage of the legs...ahhh. But then I would have to ride my bike back home and it would kind of defeat the purpose. I nice long soak in the tub is in my immediate future though.
