Today started wonderfully. I woke up in a good mood. The weather is perfect for a bike ride. I had a few things to do first.
I went to the bike shop, and bought a helmet. I’m old enough to know I’m not indestructible. The guy at the shop was helpful, and understood that I had never worn a bike helmet before.
I also bought a stereo receiver and speakers for my living room. I guess I’m an old fart. I just want good stereo speakers. I don’t want a surround sound thing. I got a decent receiver, and settled (temporarily) on some bookshelf speakers. I’ll probably replace them later with some big Cerwin-Vega speakers.
I got home, tested out the new electronics, then took my bike to the state park for a (mostly) traffic-free ride. The helmet didn’t bother me, but for some reason, I just couldn’t get into the ride. I only rode about 30 minutes before packing up and heading home.
Now I’m at home bored and somewhat depressed. I really don’t know why.
I may go out for another ride today. I will go out tomorrow. I will also do my partial commute at least three times next week.
