Biking to Walmart

We cycled the 5.5 miles north to Walmart this morning — so Rudy could buy ‘supplies’. A knife sharpener, a small soldering iron, a big coffee mug. When we got home he spent way too much time trying to solder the disconnected wires back onto the circuit board in his small bike light, which broke the other night when we were cycling to the Mexican restaurant and it fell off his helmet and crashed onto the pavement. All that time trying to fix it just confirmed that it is ‘unfixable’. But he sure tried!

In the dark evening I went to the hot tub and it was beautiful. Quiet and still. Stars twinkling in the sky. It inspired me to swim a few circle laps in the cool water — and I thought to myself that this is something new I would like to do again.
