back in the saddle…

IMG_2284with all our visitors gone I had no excuse not to do my usual Friday morning bike trainer workout today….. and besides, that’s way more fun than stripping beds and washing sheets and towels πŸ˜‰
What has become normal routine again for me too is the fact that I’ve been able to transfer off the bike and back into my wheelchair without any assistance for the last couple of months again. David took apart an old shower stool and strapped the frame of it behind my bike seat so that I have something to hold onto with my left hand that I can grab without looking while I maneuver my butt from the bike to the wheelchair.IMG_2154 Took a while to get it down perfectly but now I’m back to being able to do that workout whenever I want to without needing David to be in the house – good deal!! πŸ˜‰
Our weather is still drop dead gorgeous so I’ve lunched on the deck, finished today’s crossword and pretty soon I guess I’ll go and grab a shower. After that there’s a Smitten Kitchen prune plum cake that’s calling to me since David has been picking lots of those from the tree across the street. Eventually I’ll get to all that washing….. πŸ˜‰

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
