Saturday morning bike ride

Just went on the BEST bike ride with Caleb! We took our bikes on MARTA out to Decatur (6-7 miles east), then followed PATH / old trolley lines all the way home. On the way we went through many lovely neighborhoods, including: Oakhurst, Kirkwood, Edgewood, East Atlanta, Cabbagetown, Grant Park and more. We made several stops along the way: the Edgewood Community Gardens (lovely coop with chickens Caleb cooed over), Glenwood Park (and its coffeeshop Perk), the Urban Gardener (where I got a pretty red geranium and potting soil), and the Curb Market. We started around noon and got back home at 3:30. I immediately drank two full glasses of soy milk with ice, then potted the geranium. I think it's now time for a shower. I feel so invigorated and happy after all the exercise and pretty things we saw, like gardens, lovely homes, birds flying all around, etc.

“It's quarter to midnight and I am revved up from the BEST day -- which started with coffee in the park, went on to a bike ride, and ended with me gettin free tickets for CIRQUE DE SOLEIL at the Fox, with friends, and then topping it all with dinner & drinks at Baraonda, my favorite restaurant. And I didn't do any work all day! Yeehaaaa!”

Seriously, today was AWESOME! I can't believe getting to see Cirque du Soleil for free at the Fox. It was one of the most amazing, jaw-dropping things I've ever seen in my life. And then, suggesting we go to Baroanda, my fav restaurant, which is right next door? Brilliant idea! Yay, yay, and more yay. Lots more details in the actual voice post.
