where beautiful mistakes thrive

I ride my bike.

Life is busy, and the north is slowly warming up. Basically that means there is mud, slush, water, and dirt everywhere. Fortunately there is also warm air, and sunshine!  My friend Katie and I have decided to take the month of May to recharge and focus on getting fit. To help me along with this, I decided to buy a bike. Personally I hate biking, but decided that it’s great exercise and having found a bike I thought would actually be fun to ride around helped a lot.

I went to Canadian Tire and bought a wonderful “Cruiser Bike“!  It’s an old school bike with springs in the seat, no gears and the simple back pedal brake. I love it.  It reminds me of what my grandparents would have been riding around on while meeting up with friends at the local ma and pa diner!bike

It is going to be the perfect thing for me to doddle about on, because I know I won’t be going on any “mountain” excursions unless I am in my xterra!

What might just be the best part, is that it came with a basket. Meaning, my lovely little puppy Tonka will be coming along and riding in style!

Next step, gotta buy me a helmet! (Safety First!!)

It’s amazing how attached you can get to something/someone so quickly.For me lately this has been my new dog Tonka. He’s a little English Bulldog and he’s the best decision I’ve ever made.It’s been a rough go with work not letting me take him with me (as they originally had said would be OK) but everything has worked out and it’s a joy watching him grow!He’s a little nasty biter when he gets hyper but when he’s calm he’s the best little boy ever.I can’t imagine life without him… ah.. love… img_0050.jpg
