Vacation


I have had off this past week form work for a little vacation at home. I've been meaning to get projects done around the house this past year and the only time I can find to get them done is by taking a vacation. So far I have painted the bathroom window and door. Cleaned up the spare bedroom of crap left over from the bathroom remodel. Now I am working on organizing the July Birthday Party for our family that we are having here this weekend with about 40+ adults and children. I have mapped out how I want to set up the backyard and where to set tables, food etc... I am not sure about mosquito's, so I am going to check around for some kind of fogger to spray around the yard ahead of time. Hopefully they have a non-toxic spray I can use around the perennial garden. I also made a very large dish of Thai Peanut noodles with chicken that I have been slowly clipping off all week between a few rides.
whole wheat noodles, organic peanut butter, soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, peanuts, carrots, orange & yellow bell pepper, pea pods, green onions, cilantro,grilled chicken basted in soy and lemon marinade,pepper flakes, brown sugar, honey. Very high in carbs and protein.




Speaking of riding, I hear there was quite a big turn out for the Wednesday night race at CR last night. The Alterra race is just around the corner and the course details are in the works. Most likely, a lot more climbing will be added, UGH!

draft of ideas for the Alterra race...



off to get my chores done...
