ok. You know how we sit around the house instead of heading out when people invite us. We know our house is comfortable and one needs a little motivation to get out. Well yesterday Pamela invited me to ride my bike to the library. I really wasn't motivated to go but I needed to test out my bike and renew our library cards.
I met up with Pamela on my way to the library. Good thing because I would have never found the bike racks. The evening was cooling down but still very pleasant. I went into the library and checked out the food section for no particular reason. I found a couple of books I want to read. They're foodie/travel books. I got one out about the history of Chocolate. It's a subject I've always loved. Especially since going to Mexico 18 years ago. (wow time flies). I'm reading another foodie/journal book, Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen, now so it will have to wait.
After a successful trip to the library, we rode home via the water. That was a fantastic idea on my part. How invigorating was it to ride with the water cooling the air. The sunset was one of the nicest I have ever seen. I was kicking myself for not having my camera. I could have taken award winning pictures of the Champlain bridge and the Montreal skyscape with the glow of the sunset in the water and the clouds.
I came home and V was in bed and Eric was playing on the computer. Such a simple evening made so memorable by small wonders. So next time if you wonder whether to get out of the house. Do so! You never know.
