A nice day and a day for a personal best on my bike. I rode out to Santee this morning, and that was by way of Mission Gorge. Getting up over that hill was a little more difficult than I thought it was going to be, yet I was still able to get it done. I did ask Jason to come pick me up because of the time. I was afraid that it would take me another two hours to get back up over the hill again, for the return trip, and there were too many things to still be done ... though, I am getting ahead of myself.
I woke up at 06:15 this morning and decided that a bike ride was in order. The girls had not come up yet, so I just went and brushed my teeth, and cleaned up a little, then got dressed for a bike ride. As I was heading down stairs both of them came up and I asked them to go in and just lay down with Grandma (Linda), and I thought that was all I needed to do. Jackie had different ideas and wanted to not only lay down with Grandma, she also wanted to play and discuss anything and everything. Linda didn't get to stay in bed for very long, and so before I was able to get out of the house, Linda was up and began getting breakfast for the girls. My ride was only 22 miles, and that was because I only went the one way. If I'd completed a round trip I would have gone over 40 miles today.
The rest of the day was kind of relaxed and I just had to make dinner for the family. Linda's parents, Joe and Jess, did come down to spend a couple of days with us, and the girls went over to their mom's place for a one-day stay, because of Easter. I made spaghetti, and made a couple of alterations from my usual, and one of those changes was a spicier (hotter) sauce. It wasn't too spicy just a little bit of a zing, and since the girls were not having dinner with us, it seemed like a good time for a change. Everyone liked it, and there wasn't much left once we were done eating.
We'll all be going to Easter services tomorrow and then seeing where the day takes us. The girls will be coming back to the house at about 17:30 (5:30 pm), so we'll have an Easter Egg Hunt after they get back to the house. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
