Paint by Number Seascapes
Inspired by the latest Better Homes and Gardens magazine and the beach house, which I love, I thought I could also collect a wall of paint by numbers and try one on my own. So I just ordered my first kit which I thought would be fun, of the above shot of Catalina island. This is totally reminiscent of Good Will Hunting for those of you who've seen it (edited and non-edited versions).
In other news, I am having a hard time, walking/controlling my body as I did a 40 mile road ride this morning, which was about 20 miles downhill to start then 20 miles uphill and against the wind. So after speeding away and enjoying an easy ride and then really needing that energy to get back home! It was worth it all the way, but my body is paying for it. No hiking with the family today. Our "leader", my riding buddy Susan's husband, is an ironman, literally for the past few years he has done the ironman. Last weekend he did a triathlon and next weekend he is doing another. So as I was dying and nearly home, and Susan was escorting me to the end of our trail, he veers home and tells her, "I'm going running now". I wouldn't have been able to run if someone was waving thousand dollar bills in my face. I got home and collapsed. Well, here's to the next ride - it's just my thing.
