Celebrate the Small Things: Breathe, Breathe!

We went biking on the Riverfront Trail for the first time in Richland the other day. Threw the bikes in the back of the pickup and off we went. The air was so fresh and exhilarating. Breathe, breathe. I just kept filling my lungs. So healing to the mind and body.

I was reminded of beautiful Couer D'Alene, Idaho riding along that gorgeous lake, which I have missed since moving here in 2014. Only this time we road along the Columbia River, also beautiful in its meandering way. We passed signs posting the visitations of Lewis and Clark who had explored the area in 1806 (?) and more signs about the Hidatsa and Shoshone Indians, and our famous claim to fame, Sacajawea. Should have had my camera. Darn!

Criminy, I've been missing this time of year more than ever. I don't know about you but winter lasted longer than usual. I'll be working on my a-z posts this weekend. More than half way through and I'm learning a lot about ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. It's amazing we even have records that far back. Even more amazing they are available online. The good side of computers. The bad side is sitting in front of this computer too long!

Have a nice weekend everyone!

  1. I love getting outside and filling my lungs with fresh air. I wish winter was a bit shorter- as I spend a lot of time outside in the other three seasons, but winter keeps me inside more. Glad you got out recently! Yeah!

    1. Wishing I could do it again. Rain came and gave us a sprinkling but clearing up now. Typical spring :)

  2. I only know Sacajewea from "Night at the Museum." LOL! History was always my worst subject. Nice to hear you enjoyed biking so much, and congrats on working on your A-Z. I did it once and it was too much. I'm sure you'll have better luck. Have a good weekend!

  3. LOL, know what you mean about sitting in front of the computer too long. My eyes always hate me for that. Glad you've been making great progress on your A-to-Z posts, and that you got to enjoy some biking recently, too!

    1. Well, maybe you write faster than I do. I'm slower than molasses and there is so much research to do. Bend, OR is such a beautiful area. I love the mountain as you drive toward it from the north.

    1. Wow, good for you Denise!! I'm hoping I make the deadline, so I'm not writing and blogging at the same time as happened last year.

  6. How I miss my bike. Unable to cycle since I had aTKR. But it was the first day of British Summer Time today and the sun shone so I was gardening for most of the day (with regular breaks to check the computer)👵🏻😏💕
