Number 6 on the list of "hopes" for the New Year
Have you ever challenged yourself to do something that you haven't done in a LONG time? Well, I'll bet you have AND I would love to hear about it in the comments below! Here is what I did....
What I decided to try was riding a bicycle again after many MANY years of not even owning a bike, much less riding one. First I bought an inexpensive (but flashy looking) bike, seen here on the left. Isn't it pretty?? Things did not go well...in fact, that bike threw me in a ditch one of the first days I rode it.
Then, by happenstance, I came across a wonderful RED bicycle that my friend, Louise Coulson, was selling so I bought it & brought it home all the way from north Mississippi. (If you don't know Louise, you can check out her wonderful handmade serving pieces here: www.kingfisherdesignsmetals.com).
Here it is, my new red bike - it even has a horn, a bell AND a big basket for the front! It is so big, so comfy, so pretty....totally worth what I paid for it; I love it.
So, you may see me in your neighborhood soon - if so, wave and say hi!
That's all my news for now - I would love to know how you are challenging yourself right now ~ comment below this post!
