Okay...let me explain about my new blog...."the Crayon Profiler"....I was talking with a friend, discussing a new look for my blog and this is what I came up with....I was telling her a story of when I was a little girl and my favorite thing on earth was crayons....I loved every color, and being a lover of crayons, I loved the color RED....but it was such a dominate color and all the kids wanted to use it because they wanted to stand out....and so I felt sorry for the color PINK....it wasn't used as much ....so I chose to use the color PINK (the underdog color of crayons)....and what do I do today, I try to help the underdog's (those less fortunate than I am....I am not calling them dogs)....so I was telling my friend KIM, I bet I can tell a lot about a person by the color of crayons they used as a kid...thus "The Crayon Profiler"....the only thing I can't figure out yet is why I like black....I think it represents my strange sense of humor that is a little weird, according to some people

I started biking for the first time a few weeks ago when my husband bought me a new bike and not just any bike, a "Trek 7100 Hybrid"...I had no idea how much a good bike would make a difference, well it does. I recently biked 20.5 miles and will be doing it again this week....I have found that I really love biking....it is sad that it took me 43 years to realize how much I loved it...I have gone crazy with it and we have started a biking club for women in a nearby town....which my husband loves and is now our new maintenance guy for all of our bikes.
This past weekend, I kept my little grandbaby Alli....my daughter and her husband brought her over and to bribe her to stay with me, I told her that when the sun woke up, we would go bike riding....she loved that idea. Usually when I keep her, she always wakes up and asks to eat, not this weekend....the first thing she says is, "I wanna ride bike"...we had to eat first though before we went off on our journey....she was ready....I put her helmet on and she modeled it for me for a couple of pictures, but she was ready to go....I fixed her up a water bottle and we were off....we went close to 4.5 miles and my tire went a little flat, mostly because of the recent storms that brought down a ton of trees in our area....so we came back home....it was so hot that when I took her little helmet off, her head was soaking wet....she loved her ride, we ate lunch and then took a long NAP afterwards....here is Alli getting ready for the bike ride.
Come on Grandma "T", I am ready to ride in the bike.
I bought this in a garage sale along with a running stroller for a total of $50.00...a great buy, I have the bike trailer, now hopefully one day, I will start running as well....who knows, we have enough room for two kids at once in both....Alli is all set to go, but waiting on "T" to get a few pictures and she was getting annoyed.
Now it is time to go and look at that grin, she is so excited about going.....she can hardly wait with water bottle in hand, strapped in and helmet on....we are off and ready.

She is just a doll! I wish I had your energy. I need to ride a bike and work off this "baby fat". LOL

I have not gotten my bike out for a couple of years now. I really do enjoy going on a bike trail and ride in the evening.
Since we moved out to the acreage we don't have any good place to ride and I sure do miss it.
Your little granddaughter is so cute.
God bless
