Always An X, Never A Y

Do you know that expression?  Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.  What else does it apply to?

Today on my errands, I realized another iteration of it is true.


Yesterday was miserably rainy all day so I stayed inside and did laundry.

Today I made up for it by doing all my errands by bike. It was only 15 miles round trip but felt like twice that because of the blasted headwind! At one point on the Fairfax County Parkway Trail, I felt like I was standing still.

Ah well, it was sunny, bright, warm and the breeze (gale force at times) kept me cool.  And I found a cute bargain.  I've been looking at these for months...and today they were marked down for clearance!

Since we're traveling to Texas for spring break next week, these will come in handy on the airplane!

Today would not be a good day to be a bike rider in our little town. Rain, then sunshine, then rain, etc. etc. etc. A cold wind is blowing but the weatherman is promising *75 by tomorrow. YAY!!

Cute earbuds! I've never tried that style - I wonder if they'd stay in my ears better than the other kind.
