In our family’s attempt to combat the evil oil companies, or the idiots in Congress who won’t approve drilling for oil, or the socialist environmentalists, or whoever you feel like blaming for the ridiculously high price of gas, Jeff has been riding his bike to work nearly every day. It used to be weather permitting, but he is deciding that weather permits more often than it used to. I also am making my bike suitable for baby transport. I bought a baby carrier to attach to my bike, and bought Rachel a bike helmet. At first I didn’t know how she would take to wearing the helmet, but she seems to have gotten used to it.
Those of you who know of my aversion to the color pink will plainly see that I do not seek to unduly influence Rachel. We gave the the choice of pink or yellow. She had kind of a hard time deciding. She went back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth, but finally went for the pink.
One of my piano students is going out of town this next week to the beach, so they decided to get rid of some of their perishable foods. I got a bunch of fresh blueberries. Of Friday morning we enjoyed blueberries in our breakfast cereal, and on Saturday I made waffles. If you combine the best waffle maker I have ever used with the best waffle mix (no, I didn’t make it from scratch), with fresh blueberries, you get some really delicious waffles.
