'To Do' DONE!

I began to create my 'To Do' list (below) prior to our arrival in Riverside last November and Tuesday I finally crossed the last item off the list (#5 - Fire Extinguisher Service).....  

The fire extinguisher guy I took them to recommned quite strongly that I get new fire extinguishers even though the ones I had were rechargeable......the problem was they are over 30 years old, and have plastic hardware on the top, which gets brittle with age......of course having fire extinguishers that you know you can depend on becomes really important when you need to use one, or both to put out a fire, right?  So, it was an easy choice for me....the new ones have aluminum hardware on top along with a hose and nozzle. 

So, at least for now, my 'To Do' list is finished.  No doubt there will be new things to fix, and a new list with new challenges will come into being.

Around 0900 TLE and I drove up to Rancho Cucamonga to my daughter Sharon's apartment so TLE could get some more Brayden James time......while she did that I took off on my bike for another ride back to Riverside.......

Brayden James at 6 weeks....10 lbs!

.......instead of riding east on 4th Street like I did last time I headed back a block and went north on Haven to pick up the PET (Pacific Electric Trail).  On my way I stopped off at Cyclery USA to pick up a couple of tubes for my grandson's mountain bike, and then continued eastward on to the PET.

 Entering the Rialto section of the PET heading north to pick up the PET I added 3 miles to my ride, but I was able to be off surface streets for a total of 19 miles out of the 28 miles I rode.  

I stopped off once again at The Coffee Bean for guessed it.....mocha was in the 80's by the time I arrived at the coffee shop just before 1300 hours, and I needed something COLD to cool me down.....usually I get the medium, but Tuesday I ordered the LARGE.  In all it took me 2 hours and 4 minutes of riding time to get back home, and burned closed to 1800 calories.......

Before I took a shower I installed one of the new bicycle tubes in the rear tire of Elijah's K-2 mountain bike, and did some stretching.  I spent the rest of the afternoon finishing a good book, then took a well deserved nap......

Next up.....March Madness.....the NCAA men's basketball tournament!

Thanks for stopping by!
