Today was a nice day, not windy and not cold. The ground was dry and all of a sudden, some of us decided to go on a bike ride on the C&O. It was late when we got there, around 5:30pm. Only 2-3 people were there and so it was a very private and peaceful ride.
We also saw a lot of trees which had fallen and which had been chopped up on our drive over to the C&O. Did you know you can legally collect wood off the side of the road as long as it is public property? We were going to get some wood for next winter, but upon inspecting it, we decided it was not good wood. Recently cut and clean, which was good, but very painful to split because of the type of tree – so we let it go.
We had a great ride and when we came back home, we had a great supper: Chicken Sweet Potato Bake with Broccoli and Homemade Blueberry Pie a la mode.
Tomorrow it is going to snow so we are very glad we took the opportunity to pretend it was spring today 🙂
