Well, we got through a busy day at the shop today. We had to cater a brown bag luncheon for 54. That is quite a bit of lunch for us to prepare beside what we have at the shop. I stayed up until about 4 am watching boiling chickens, making stickers, making plans, getting to go bags ready with silverware, napkins etc. Our menu was homemade chicken salad sandwiches on a homemade bun. We put slightly roasted, slivered almonds in, water chestnuts, celery, and onion in with lots of chicken. We made and frosted sugar cookies and I made little stickers with fortunes on them to seal the cookies into a paper sack. The group also received homemade potato salad and a big of sun chips. We brought our house blend coffee, Sit Long Talk Much and also a flavored blend of Butterscotch Toffee. I also brewed tea and served this iced. whewwwwwwww Thank goodness for our wonderful helpers. Afterwards, Cindy Sue and I went for a short bike ride. It ended up to be 20 miles or so. My second real ride since March. I don't think we will do BRAN ride this year but maybe we can do the NUMB ride. The NUMB 2008 ride will be a 270+/- mile loop tour starting and ending in Wahoo, Nebraska. The strangest thing happened on our ride today. My eyes always tear up to much when I ride. I think it is because I wear to small of sunglasses and the wind irritates my eyes. Soooo I was wiping tears and I just said to Cindy, "I need to get a pair of good sunglasses" and it wasn't more than 20 feet later and waaa laaaahhh there was a perfectly good pair of yellow Ironman sunglasses laying on the side of the road!! I was like whoooahhhh is this strange or what. Nothing wrong with them at all. AND THEY FIT!!
now...sadly after only 20 miles...I feel a bit tired and my right foot hurts. Don't know what to do about that yet. Might need a pad in my cycle shoes.
