My plans for Brooksville would have to wait. The entire weekend forecast was rain so I moved to plan B. Ybor City (EE-bor) is a historic part of Tampa. I had been wanting to explore that area by bike for a while as well. Again it's only 30 minutes by bike from home. Again the rain moved in earlier than expected. My plans would have to wait.
What to do however? My first and second plans were shot to hell? I could find something to do right?
I reviewed some of my old posts, and updated one or two based on some new information. I read and reviewed a few of my friends blogs, only to find that many of my fellow bloggers had signed up for the Fuzzy Galore video blog challenge...and although I've been told that I have a voice for radio (and a face to match) I decided not to participate.
I enjoy the actual physical act of writing. The sound of my fingers pounding down the keys and the joyful noise it makes Looking into a camera? Taking the time to edit, to actually think about what I wanted to say before hand? Nope! Not this guy!
Well that took up a couple hours...and I'm still bored. It's still raining.
Do the dishes? Clean out the closets? No, here is a really riveting episode of Gilligan's Island I've not seen since 1973...or was it 2014? Yes, the one where the Skipper finally snaps his little buddies head like a grape to get off the damned island.
I look at the window. Still raining. I consider my rain gear and how it keeps me warm and dry only to get a "No." from Susan. I wonder off again....looking for something to do.
"Can there really be nothing? Is this what my northern riding friends have to put up with for months at a time?" I think to myself.
I look at gear on the computer, I try to convince myself that I really don't need a new jacket (but I really, really do!).
Again I look outside, it's the first free weekend I've had in some time.....and I can't do anything I had planned. Even the housework I had wanted to do, like some painting outside, was put off due to this weather.
I suppose their is always next weekend right?
