It was really hard to ride - even downhill - so I decided not to risk wrecking the bike and just walked Katie for a couple of blocks.
I have to tell you - Katie was a natural! She just loved it. Never even tried to jump out.
When I walked her back up our little hill I parked it and held on the the handlebars to steady the bike to get her out and she wouldn't budge. Just looked away from me. So I checked what I could on the front brake, tried to see where the rubbing was coming from, but - nothing obvious to me.
Finally I had to MAKE her get out of the basket, and she let me lift her out. I have no worries that she'll be fine when we're streaming down the roadway. If I can get in good enough shape to stream anywhere! : )
Today I did a little Christmas decorating. I put up a lighted wreath on my mantle mirror and hung my Barbie ornaments from it, a couple of outside decorations, wreath on the front door, etc. Small things here and there. I have scented candles lit and the fireplace going. It's very cozy here tonight.
I am going to a Christmas show/service at my friend Alice's "other" church. Alice is in her 80's, as quick, bright, healthy and busy as any 40 year old I know. MUCH busier than I am. She married a man a few years her senior around three years ago. They had the BEST marriage for close to two years, then he died. He and his family were very active in a different church, so Alice started going to his church with him. Now that he is not here with her, she is dividing her time between his church and our church here at the lake. The service tonight is at her late husband's church.
Alice invited me and Jan, from our church here at the Lake. I haven't seen Jan for a long while, and am looking forward to seeing them both tonight.
That's it for today. It's been a busy weekend, and now I have to get ready. Alice is coming by at 6:00 to pick me up.
From Me and My Dog, Katie, have a nice Sunday evening, everyone! : )
