A First for Me!
Today was my first day riding with my husband on his motorcycle! He has been riding for almost a year now and when we bought the bike, I told him I wouldn't ride with him until he had a year's experience. Not thinking how fast a year goes by! Yikes! We went to the motorcycle dealer yesterday and bought a helmet and gloves for me. This morning, before it got too hot, he took me for a ride around post. It is so weird not being buckled on the road! We rode around for maybe an hour and I can tell already, I need more padding on my rear! But it was fun! Once I got over the initial nerves, it was very enjoyable.
Here we are just before heading out. And look, Tony has his "retirement facial hair"! (That sure didn't take long!)
We just rode around post so our speed didn't get up as fast as it will outside. He has to get used to me on the back; braking and curves handle a little differently with extra weight. He said it was no problem though. I see more rides in my future!
I finished the polka dot quilt, finally. Geez, it only took twice as long on my old Bernette! But it is done and I'm pleased with it. Just have to make the label.
I used a Pringles lid for marking the smaller circles and a coffee cup for the larger ones. I love circles!
My favorite sewing machine is still in the shop, but the diagnosis has been made. Hopefully, the part will be in this week. Is it wrong to have such an attachment to a sewing machine?!! I can't wait to get it back!
