Shaking it out



Working at home really spoiled me. I can't believe all the little things that I forget every day: cables for sync'ing devices, cutlery, peripherals, food stuff, clothes stuff. I'm still shaking out the office thing, but there's no denying I'm high maintenance too. I had a lot of little daily rituals that I didn't have a plan for porting to my new space. New rituals will emerge.

I enjoy trying different ways to haul my crud. On Monday, I went with messenger bag on the back. Yesterday I did the backpack. Today, I had a lot of stuff: laptop, various electronic stuff, shoes, two shirts -- so I racked it. I like leaning into corners with a load like this over the front wheel.



I need to figure out the mid-day ride in my new neighborhood. I'm going to run Playfair today. But I also need to find some dirt and a good hill for a quick 1/2 hour loop or so.

So how far would your new digs be from, say just for geographical reference, the Checkerboard?

Looks like you are not too far from the Checkerboard. Nice work.

I'm just over a block away from the Checkerboard. A great bar indeed.

Dear Santa, I want a giant sponge bob backpack!

I think the Rainbow is closer than the checkerboard..

Klay: Maddie scored that back pack on our last trip to Value Village. $5! It suits Liza too.
