Happy Pi Day!

Posted on Wednesday - March 14, 2012

Instead of baking a pi, or eating a pi, I went for a ride on my bike. I've been trying to keep riding all winter, an interesting challenge in the midwest. Didn't do a great job, but today, I rode.

What a gorgeous day here in the Chicago area. A bit windy. But not like last week, and the temperature was in the high 70's. (take that big sign on Highway 45 with the thermometer and picture of some "warmer" place that says "that's why they call it paradise) The ride to the quilt shop was against the wind and hard going, but the ride home was an easy sail. At the last intersection, I was listening to Springsteen's "Born to Run" while I stood there on my trusty blue bike with adorable white basket. The woman standing there gave me an odd look, perhaps she thought my music choice was ironic, but hey, she was wearing cowboy boots and I didn't see a horse.
