It's a bird, it's a plane, NO...it's Axel finally on a bike of his own (or rather a gratefully accepted hand-me-down). Several garage sales and two sporting goods stores later, the only helmet and training wheels we were able to procure are, yup, "kinda pink". No big deal to this stop and smell the flowers kind of rider, he's not so much interested in his gear, speed or other users of the road...he's in it for the "neighborhood puppy tour".
So while we're busy teaching our son to ride a bike and painting the house in it's entirety, we did hire just one thing out...NEW CARPET! It's a beautiful thing when you finally throw in the do-it-yourself towel and HIRE SOMETHING OUT!!!
I've discovered two new things this week, Lily of the Valley (which Nana pointed out in my yard and said they remind her of her mother...and smell exquisite), and one banned piece of literature. The book being "Fanny Hill", which was written in 1748 (yes, the 18th century) and banned until 1963 for obscenity. Although considered a profane piece of fiction, it's like profanity with a side of 1749...the verbiage is descriptively tasteful and quite often hilarious. It's known that I am a fan of the written word...much more so of anything kept off the shelves for over two centuries! I recommend the read for...historical purposes.
So, both physically and mentally, Axel and I are off to the races this week, new floor coverings and all.
Happy Memorial Day to all those remembering people from our past, and on the flip side honoring those carrying us into the future.
