Three Things on Thursday

1.) I'm not a coffee drinker...neither is Tim. We didn't even own a coffee maker for a long time, but I actually bought one several years ago so we could offer our guests coffee. In the wintertime we use it to heat water for tea and hot chocolate, so it didn't surprise me at all when Nate saw a coffee maker in a magazine this morning and he said, "Oh look! A hot chocolate maker!"

2.) I love biking! Nate and I can be found on the trail 4 or 5 times a week. We have a fun routine where we ride for 3 miles to the bike shop,go inside and look at all the cool new bikes, have a snack at the picnic table, then ride 3 miles back to the car.

It's a pretty strenous ride with 3 miles of constant uphill, which amounts to a 1,000 foot increase in elevation. So I'm usually feeling pretty good about our ride and my ability to pull an extra 50 pounds (Nate, trailer, toys, snacks and whatever else Nate deems necessary). I'm no Lance Armstrong, but I do alright. I've never been passed by a runner or skateboarder - well until this week.

This guy came cruising by us on an extra-wide skateboard. His legs must have been 6 feet long. He was alternating pushing with his left and right foot, and he zoomed past us like we were crawling! Ummmm....that's just not right. What else can I say?!

3.) Pinterest. What is it about this website that is so addicting? I don't get it...but I am completely hooked. If you're not on (and you need more ways to waste time online), let me know and I will send you an invite.

Nate's comment about the coffee maker- too cute!

I have looked at people's Pinterest and I would like to do it, but I already waste too much time on the internet... Maybe someday!

Can't wait to reconnect at Bible Study!

I completely agree on the pinterest front! ;)

What bike shop do you ride to?

ok, this is twice tonight I have seen something about Pinterest. I need an invite. Oh, and I miss you.
