Decked out in Wool
Last night, a violent and short lived rainstorm quickly swept through the Bay Area causing my home to shake and I was ever so scared so I hid under the comforter cuddling with my boy toy.
The BF: Wait a minute, I was on a business trip!
Me: Oh no, then who was that masked man ... oops.
Oh alrighty, perhaps I was alone beneath the sheets. Meanwhile, who wants to go on a club ride with a starting temperature of 41 degrees and maybe a high of 50? Me, me, me!! Yeah, right....
But I did, along with the support of Miss P and Dr. G. and lots of other brave souls. We opted to do the 35 mile ride weaving through Santa Teresa, Baily, McKean, Uvas Oak Glen and so forth. I wish I had snapped a photo or two of downtown Morgan Hill. It's cute looking with a mixed theme of cowboy and urban.
As for wool. Can't say enough about this lovely fabric. I wore two wool base layers, wool gloves, two pairs of wool knee warmers along with a fleece cap, fleece jersey and windbreaker. Wool, it does my body good. And so too would a good man.... Though right now, a steaming mug of hot chocolate sounds good.
