Wrapped up my Easter ride by 9:45 this morning, pulling into the driveway minutes before John returned from his Honolulu Marathon Clinic session. I win! Haha. I did the hills, and it was a little hard today, but I think Kamiloiki is harder than Makapu’u. I’m not sure why. I’m just not dying as much when I get to the top of Makpu’u. Took my pics, kept going. I lucked out this weekend. Both times I’ve launched from Makapu’u, there’s been no traffic and I’ve had the whole lane to myself to go flying down like a 10-year-old kid who is in a hurry to get home to a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup lunch and some cartoons.
I kinda wish, though, that more drivers knew that they need to give bicyclists at least a three-foot berth when passing us on the road. I wish they knew we were entitled to the lane when we take it, although some feel the need to shave the hair off my legs when they gun it going by. Enough. Happy to have lived to tell the tale.
We’re getting together with the Bender Clan tonight. I’m making several versions of strata. I know it’s mainly a breakfast dish, but we used to always get together early on Easter. Not so much any more. The time has changed, but the menu seems to have stayed the same. One will be cheese, onions and bacon, another will be sausage, cheese, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and bacon, and if I make a third, it might have some baby bok choy greens through it used as though it were spinach. With onions, bacon and cheese, of course!
So I should get busy!
Love to you all on this Easter 2011. Peace to the world, more charity in our hearts, and a broader world view toward those whose belief systems do not match our own, but nonetheless give them peace and focus.
