5 months and counting

Today it has been 5 months since we gave up using the car and using alternative methods of transportation. ie the dumpie bike and the makeshift cargo trailer. While it has not been easy it is a blessing. To know that we dont have to perpetuate the gas and go mentality any longer.

Son and I did go up to the the farmers market yesterday by bike as usual. We got fresh peaches and cream corn, plums, and plocots (a hybrid plum/apricot). On the way back we stopped in Wallie World for a bag of frozen burgers and buns to bbq for supper. We spent the afternoon relaxing and working on some at home projects.
Mrs T and I both hate carpet. What with the kids and the animals carpet is a PITA. So I am beginning the tedious work of yanking up the carpet in the livingroom and family room in order to prep for the wood flooring we have inherited and will be layin down this fall. BUsy busy
