Spring is in the Air EARLY at the Lazy Vegan!
The weather has been amazing here at the Lazy Vegan this week! Tons of sunshine and blue skies. We had to put up with a few mornings of fog, but otherwise nobody is complaining. The highlight of the week was selling my sewing machine (it has been residing in the closet, unused, for the past couple of years) and then decided to put the earnings toward an early birthday purchase for MOI - a bicycle. With a basket! I test-rode many bikes and finally made my decision today and picked a vintage looking dark green Schwinn with a red plaid seat and a cupholder! And a big basket. My plan is to ride on the bike trail to the produce stand for veggies, etc. Photos will be on the blog next week. Since it is my b-day gift, it didn't feel right to put it on the blog just yet until I have my birthday bike ride! Plus, I need to buy a helmet, which may require some research...because all of the helmets at the bike shop were too high-tech looking to go with the bike. So that's it for this week...I'm off to look at my bike and ride it around the driveway. The funniest thing is that it has pedal brakes instead of hand brakes - just like my bike did when I was a kid!
