It has been beautiful for the past 4 days. I even got the bike out finally. And after my Livestrong class(which I've missed so many of), Maya came over wanting a bike ride too in the trailer. Unfortunately, it was very windy by then and although my bike had air in the tires, the trailer's tires did not. A hard ride.
Our insurance company dropped us due to our poor roof. We have since dropped them due to the crappy way they told us we were dropped. We will have better insurance for less with someone else. The only downside is that they are installing a spy camera in one of the cars. Well I know which car I will be driving. And I can't believe Steve agreed to this (aka Leadfoot). We already have a spy camera in that car as part of a research study at the U. But we did need a new roof which was put on in 11 very noisy hours the other day and had our gutters repaired.
And healthy salads at our cooking class. Usually I get annoyed when people beg for the instructor to leave this and that out of the recipe but the other day after 5 years of taking this class, I finally made a request for one of the salads to be 'beet-free'. As soon as I said that, several other beet haters popped up. I know I have some silly food aversions and I try to overcome some of them but I will gag on beets, yucky things.
Last night a friend asked me to go to a lecture on campus by a famous jewelry designer sponsored by the art school. It was in the beautifully restored Michigan theater. Before the presentation, we were treated to an organ recital. The artist, David Yurman, was interesting. How people get into things that they do.
