Middle Aged Woman on a Bicycle

Less Waste Equals Less Waist

Monday this week started something new in the Morgan household. After cleaning out the refrigerator on Sunday I made a bold decision. We waste too much food.

It is so much fun to take time off from the usual day to day. This past Friday Tom and I decided to spend the day doing whatever we wanted. On those days the vintage cruisers come out of the garage! Audrey Blue was rolling like a dream. What could be more FABULOUS! Didn't leave…

Why As A Bicyclist I Refuse to Look Like a Traffic Cone

I have been slowly collecting accessories and tools that will start to make riding my bicycle every day a reality. My latest find is re-usable, easy clean, compact grocery bags.
