Goodmorning and welcome to a new week! How was your weekend everyone? Time has just flown by, but overall it was a wonderful weekend for myself. Unfortunately though, due to the off-again on-again rain, my thoughts of a picnic-in-the-park were put to rest for the time being. When oh when will I have the first picnic of the season! Hopefully next weekend will be gorgeous and sunny out, as i'm hoping to have as many bike-rides and picnics as I can this season...
Which brings me to my "new" bike... on Saturday I picked it up from my Grama's house where my Dad put some new tubing in the tires, then I cleaned it up and polished it for hours. It was well worth it though, as it's all shined up and ready to go. I didn't need to purchase new tires after-all, so it still has the original white-walled ones from Italy. Can't you just picture it with a cute basket in the front and some new handles to match the leather seat? It even has a little tool kit attached to the back and working lights powered by the tires. Oh and the bell is a little addictive, lol... felt like a little kid again!
Can't wait to go out on the next ride... if anyone knows of some great places to get a basket, do tell!
