I can't believe how tired I am. My sleep cycle's all out of whack (oh, the joys of unemployment) and I have a hard time staying awake for any length of time. On Monday I got up at 5 a.m. and was so bored I took out my new (for me, at least) bike for a spin at half past seven. The streets were empty so at least I didn't make a fool of myself with my wobbling about, but it turns out you really don't forget how to ride a bicycle. I took the opportunity to explore a bit and ended up on the panorama trail (oh, the joys of living in a tourist-y region). Saw a fox, a deer and a squirrel and passed by the "road of the dead" (wtf, Oeventrop???) and lots of freshly cut-down trees that smelled of sap and resin. All in all a very nice morning, but I need a softer saddle. Ow!

Back to writing drabbles now.

It's been a while since I rode a bike, but I remember that day-after feeling of having done too much if you're not cautious easing back into it.

The city workers here sometimes put fir and pine prunings through their big industrial chipper and then use the chips to cushion the walking trails in the parks. For weeks afterward, if it's sunny and warm, it smells sublime!
