Rolling Rolling Rolling

So guess what? I'm in Philadelphia helping Judy clean the dust bunnies out from under her bed!  And as if that weren't enough we're going to paint her bedroom next...but she wouldn't go for my colour suggestion:
I don't get it - isn't red the perfect colour for a bedroom?
Is anyone else feeling hot? Is it just global warming or are the weather gods having a great time messing with nature? In any case, I have to say that here it is - 9:25pm - and I'm sitting outside on my back patio with a sleeveless top on and a skirt! WTF??  We've got several candles lit, we're sitting in lawn chairs with our laptops, I'm enjoying a white wine spritzer on ice, tunes playing on the iPod and I can't believe I've got to get up and go to work in the morning!! What is wrong with this picture people??

Anyhoo this is supposed to be a cycling update. Over the past couple of months I've been quietly pedalling away in the basement headed to all points southeast - Philly (I'm ready for those cheese steaks Judy) and a whole bunch of other places nearby (I'd list them but that would mean getting up, going inside and getting the map on which I've marked my journey. So suffice it to say I don't want to get up again. Once it turns cold again, and it will turn cold again, then I'll be in my Room of my Own blogging away and I'll get the map out.

I just updated my mileage tracker in my sidebar and I've actually gone 25km past Philly on my way to ?? Stay tuned for further, more explicit, updates. Yes, I'm lazy. Except when it comes to my bike. Last week I unwrapped my outdoor bike, filled the tires with air and hit the streets. What a blast! I've racked up 80km in 4 rides since last Thursday and I'll be out again tomorrow as the thermometer is going up into the high 20'sc (high 80'sF). I find (you'll find this interesting Mark) that I have fewer hot flashes when I'm pedalling along creating a nice breeze! However, keep your mouth closed as the bugs are back. Something hard smacked me in the middle of my forehead today! OWWW!


So that's my highly detailed update for today - I hope you enjoyed it :)

I like the red - but mine is a light brown....I am not bold enough to do color ;) 

The Borrower said...

I personally love the red color.  Of course, I am a bit bold. :)

Maureencairney said...

I love that expression dust bunnies, so much cuter than what usually lurks under a bed. I love the idea of a red bedroom, just don't know if I would be brave enough.....

mark said...

So close, but yet so far.
By the way, my bedroom is that exact color!  I shit you not!
Okay, keep pedaling!  I'm so excited!

Jharrison56 said...

Oh oh, now mine is TOO!

Jharrison56 said...

Do I get to see that red bedroom of yours? I'm getting close!

Jharrison56 said...

Actualy red is NOT a restful colour so I certainly wouldn't do my own bedroom in that colour!

Jharrison56 said...

Me either, really. I tend towards whites, beiges and taupes - how blah!

Jharrison56 said...

It's great to be bold! My daughter chose a pinky-orange colour for her bedroom - but I don't look forward to the day when I have to neutralize it in order to sell the house!

Jharrison56 said...

Oh no, you suffer from allergies? That sucks!

C.R.P said...

Isn't it gorgeous?!? I got colour on my arms over the last couple of days from being out so much!! lol!
