Going for a Bicycle Ride
Do you like to go for a bicycle ride? I gave up my bicycle here in Florida because I found myself riding so rarely, and we have a great local bike rental here in Celebration. I can still ride a bicycle safely, but I would probably be safer on one of those grown up tricycles!
I love all of the creative ways people use bicycles for garden decor, or their everyday bicycle with flowers in the basket. Just tucking some artificial flowers into a bicycle basket makes it into a pretty mobile decoration.
I have seen bicycles everywhere this summer in holiday decorating, like my Uncle Sam from Michael’s.
I loved these pillows I spotted out shopping, I don’t even remember where! Now, I did not learn to ride a bicycle at a young age. I think I was in second or third grade. My memories of learning to ride a bike were in Orofino, Idaho. We lived in a rural area on a street with a bit of an incline. There were no sidewalks and there was a muddy ditch on one side of the road. My sister was helping me and was pushing me along. At some point, she let go and I promptly rode right into the muddy ditch. I tell her to this day that she pushed me into that ditch, but I know that isn’t what happened.
That is what siblings do, isn’t it? We help one another, we encourage one another and we blame one another and we forgive one another. I am so fortunate to have my sister nearby so we can get together for lunch or shopping most anytime. Maybe it is time to go for a bicycle ride with her!
