Confessions Of A Lazy Person : Not Biking In Whitefish


Nine of us traveled to Whitefish for a biking bachelorette weekend this past weekend and I was the only one who didn’t bike. It wasn’t a hard decision for me as I still have no feeling in most of my foot and if I do too much my leg gets super achy and I’m just a little tired of achy. So I stayed back and did some swimming and hot tubbing and a bit of walking, which was really good because I’m supposed to be walking on an incline, good for the stiffness, and I haven’t been.

I’m okay with being the oddball in a group. I’m getting good at being that person. I like that everyone has accepted this part of me. I had no grief for it, although I had a great excuse, but I feel as though if I had not broken my leg this wonderful group of bike crazy women would have been very cool with me not participating (to my face). I love that.

Our Fernie Deal Of The Week – Cheap Bike

Our Fernie - Buy and Sell - Classifieds
OurFernie.com’s buy and sell section is not as cheap as I’d expect/like it to be. It feels like it’s getting harder and harder to find good deals in there…used beds for 500 dollars? bike rack for $150? It’s probably my own fault, thinking these pages of items for sale should be more like a yard sale…

“$0.50 for this book? I’ll give you $0.25.”…. “sold.”

I’m looking forward to summer yard sales.

Deal of the week today is the “Cheap bike“, without a picture, for $20.

“I’ll give you $10.”

I don’t know why Rod takes me anywhere anymore. All I want to do is take pictures of flowers and admire the different colours and textures in nature. But he continues to ask me to go places so I guess he be can’t hurting that badly. On Saturday we took our bikes down Coal Creek Road and did a bit of riding on overgrown trails and got ourselves way too close to the shooting range. It’s so beautiful out there.
