Today was a day for errands and chores. That’s not to say we didn’t get a little bike ride in first, because we did. First thing this morning, we bicycled in Forest Park. This early morning ride allowed us to beat the day’s heat, but we were definitely not alone, the park was very crowded at that hour. Everyone one else wanted to beat the heat too. The errands and chores that we accomplished today were in preparation for our summer vacations. We first gathered and then packed our camping equipment. I put new tires, tubes and brake pads on Anne’s bike and I got my hair cut. After our ride, while I was busy in the basement, Anne was feverishly working upstairs on her latest quilting creation. I cannot disclose much about this project, because it is going to be a present, but the portions of this quilt that have already been completed look quite spectacular.
