What I saw from, and on, the bike path today:

  • a guy saving the life of a garter snake
  • five river rafts heading for an adventure
  • more dads-and-daughters than I could keep track of
  • a duck parade (not to be confused with a Duck Parade, however, I did see LOTS of Duck fans)
  • two large feathers, one was from a peacock
  • an eagle, soaring over the water

             It was a grand afternoon, followed by a grand meal out.  Ally (xenatuba) and her Mrs met us for their dinner/our lunch.  One retired deputy, and one vacationing deputy; a good time was had by all.

             The message I woke up with today was MUCH more pleasant than yesterday’s.  Playful even.

Reigning smiles.

             It’s a fun turn-of-phrase (you know how I love words).  Like if we were a monarch, who ruled a queen/kingdom, and we did it with a perpetually happy face.  Under perpetually stormy skies.

             Back within our regular rotation now, on our card altar we’ve been given a lovely gift.  Can you see the owl in that top left corner?  It’s one of my favorite images (in a collection of exceptionally wonderful illustrations).

“The Spirit Whisperer  ~  3  ~

Divine guidance, higher knowledge

As an Ally, the Spirit Whisperer comes to you heralding the miraculous and the inspired.  She whispers guidance from the Divine through  your higher senses so that you can hear her wisdom and know her love for you.  She is committed to helping you intuit the next right action and steer you away from trouble.  

The Spirit Whisperer keeps you inspired to move forward  always knowing – just in time – the correct next step.  She guides you to fulfill your highest purpose.  When she appears, it is a sign of inspired ideas that, with continual action, lead to success!  

That’s a very good omen. . . . “

Today’s Mileage:

was a return trip to the mall, and the cell phone kiosk.  But not because anything was wrong, simply to clear up some minor details  (and have the guys look at my car-charger).  For 13.387 miles, in 1 hour 18 minutes 27 seconds of pedaling time, with an average pace of 10.2 MPH.

Today’s Sharing:

is also from the mall.  And it’s a re-run of: “I  love this place!” (originally posted HERE).  These folks are so sweet, so terrific, and have such really cool products.  (Currently, they seem to have only a very basic web presence,but I’ll keep checking back.) If you’re local, stop by.  Tell them you know me!  (Thanks, Anita and Vivek, and Friend!)

  1. Great stuff from the bike path, I have to say. I saw some river otters in the channel out towards Meadowlark Prairie last summer, and am usually treated to some sort of waterfoul on my sojourns out that way. Never an eagle, yet. I loved the story of the raft trip, especially the pack mule guy. Or would that be a pack raft guy…

    And ya know what else I thought of? It’s a holiday weekend! That’s another reason they were going!

  2. Wow, Ally, you’re retired?! How did I miss that! Congrats! I hope retirement treats you well. What will Dan do without you at work? 🙂

    Oh Julie, what wonderful scenes you saw! I especially love the one about the guy saving a garter snake’s life. Did you bring either of the feathers home, especially the peacock’s? I would have. Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

    How are you doing with the new fancy-pants phone?

    He’s not happy about it, let me just tell you now.
    (Thrilled for her, obviously. But quite displeased with the situation in general. However, right now, he’s on vacation!)

    No, the feathers were in a place where I couldn’t stop the bike safely and grab them. Or I TOTALLY would have!

    I’m doing okay with it. Slow and steady. Not too much every day, little bits at a time.

    10:15 p.m.

  3. I am constantly amazed at how far you travel on your bike on a regular basis. And it sounds like it made for a very good day.

    I was on the verge of getting all impressed with those numbers too, then I talked to a guy (one of the kids’ former teachers) the other day who is doing 500 a week.

    A WEEK.

    Mine no longer look so important.
