This is a question from @RossA that I had missed from a while ago:

Q3. I'm currently struggling to find the โ€˜mojoโ€™ to get out cycling regularly. What do others do to keep the cycling fresh and fun?

(If I've missed your question before, don't feel bad if you need to remind me as I have missed a few. Using the BikeNitePQ hashtag helps)

I finally got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to fix my painful right thumb. I have been trying to get someone to fix it for the past seven months.
I'm excited but nervous to get an owwie shot. Actually, anything would be better than how it is now.
The office has its own little stand of redwood trees.

Still in COVID shot hell, so I'm posting my dopey gif early today.

Hope Mother's Day was a good one for all of you. I slept thru most of it.

I can't believe I'm already into the actual countdown-number posts now!

'Night all. See you for Michael Cohen testimony tomorrow.

@VirginiaLady16 @GottaLaff @GeePawHill Iโ€™ve had Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax. No after effects from Novavax! My arm wasnโ€™t even sore afterwards. The Costco pharmacist told me that the Novavax they had was expiring at the end of April so hopefully you can find some in your area.

We got my husband off to the hospital at 4:15 this morning. Because he has skin cancer on his face that has stubbornly recurred after three removal efforts, today they are trying a different strategy. Hopefully, the mohs surgery is successful.
Summer decided to spend the rest of her very early morning in his chair. She has one of his sweatshirts to cuddle while she misses him.
Hope you got more sleep than we did.
Good morning, Mastodon.

@Lizette603_23 I read that quote in a a biography of Aldo Leopold years ago but it seems particularly appropriate now.

Via Kyle Griffin:

President is traveling to Racine County, Wisconsin today to unveil a $3.3 billion investment by Microsoft to build an AI data center in the state.

This is the same location where, seven years ago, touted a $10 billion Foxconn facility as the "eighth wonder of the world."
That facility never fully materialized.

@GottaLaff @BlueWaver22 Good! Glad Moderna is still around. Got the Novavax booster a few weeks ago. The Costco pharmacist said Novavax vaccines would expire at the end of April. #Novavax

Lovely, one of the neighbors panicked about the swarm of bees that showed up at my house. I told them we would catch them and move them, but not before they called the neighbors who hate us.

It appears that some universities are banning masks of any kind at sites where they are holding their graduation ceremony. This is ableist, exclusionary, and completely unacceptable.

reflecting on the bear-or-man discourse

and thinking about how my good dog protected me, over the years, from both bears and men

she faced down my violent ex-husband when he tried to kick in the door of my house

and a bear that tried to walk through our camp one night, up the Skok

and this makes me think that really what women need isn't an array of bad choices

it's to be supported so that we have the freedom and resources to be out in the world safely

also, dogs are pretty great

I am supposed to get in thirty minutes of heart-pounding exercise three days a week. I still needed one more day, so I ran down to the wildlife refuge, and since the trail was flat, I walked as fast as I could in the loose gravel. Maybe it wasn't quite heart-pounding, but it was a couple of miles.
We will call it good enough.
I left Summer in charge of things at home.

@NorcalGma2 BTW a few years before a milestone Bday my primary care doc wanted me to do some heart pounding exercise. After considering it, I thought it was on his checklist of things to ask me about/encourage. This strikes me more so after my milestone bday. Might this be an insurance or Medicare advantage plan finagling?

@NorcalGma2 The "putting it in writing" always bugs the heck out of me. A gyno nurse entered info that I had an hysterectomy on my online chart. Not true and Yikes!

@NorcalGma2 Wow that is so wrong and so glad you fought to correct it. ๐Ÿ‘ It can be so wearying to fight for things you should not have to.
