Very Cool Bike

So I recently decided that it was time for me to start taking better care of myself. I've started swimming and I'm taking tennis lessons (I've got a lot to learn) but I also thought it would be nice to get active as a family. Biking seemed like a reasonable activity for all of us, especially since I can't stand running! I gave my old mountain bike to my sister-in-law, mainly b/c it wasn't comfortable for me and it seemed to be a great fit for her. Anyway, I wanted an Electra Cruiser but it just didn't have enough gears for the kind of riding I envision us doing so I chose the Electra Townie instead. Of course, I couldn't have just any color, I had to have the special cranberry pink with fenders. I love it! Lucy loves it! Plus I think that I might actually use it and that will be a very good thing.

Lots of sewing projects coming down the pike to keep me busy. More on those later.
