Easter weather was phenomenal today! It reached 84 degrees, which I’m sure will be a record. Will have to check the newspaper tomorrow. Usually this time of year we are having rain and temperatures in the mid-50’s. Of course, now there is quite a breeze blowing and the clouds are moving in, so we should be back to normal weather by tomorrow. But it has been a great weekend. I played golf both Friday and Saturday. Because my leg muscles aren’t quite up to the snuff of climbing hills and pushing a 25lb bag of clubs around for 5-plus miles, I am feeling quite stiff in my lower back today. I decided to baby it today and take a day off from exercise.
Hubby, daughter and I took advantage of the weather today by going for a nice long motorcycle ride. It was great to see all the spring flowers and trees as we flew along. The other two are the ones that ride the motorcycles. I just ride on the back of my husband’s bike. I tried to learn how to ride. In fact, I’ve taken a Motorcycle safety class twice. But failed miserably both times. I just can’t get the hang of it. The clutch is in your left hand, the throttle is in your right hand. The shifting gear is in your left foot, and it is all very frightening to me when you are trying to learn this with a heavy moving vehicle underneath. It’s probably a good thing I failed. I’m perfectly happy riding behind.
Anyway, Easter dinner isn’t going to be anything special. The other two are going to eat pork chops (eew!). And I’m having leftover lamb stew that I made earlier in the week. Very compliant, and it is quite delicious. We will enjoy watching our recording of the final round of the Masters this evening.
