Silver Liningness Sunday

I was paying some bills, but writing the silver lining blog post sounded like more fun.

Another good week of course.  It's even good to have bills to pay I suppose.  And last night I had a dream that I was on a chartered airplane going someplace fun, except the plane didn't have a bathroom.  WTH?

Anyway, I visited another PEO chapter this week.  I'm starting to feel a little impatient with just visiting and want to settle down with one of them soon, but I really should give them all a fair shake.  I've narrowed it down to five chapters, based on their meeting times, and I've visited three.  Sheesh, it's like The Dating Game.

School's going well.  I think I've settled into the whole student thing now, just in time to start setting up my schedule for the next semester.  I'm taking part 2 of the math class I have now and I'm torn between continuing with my same instructor, whom I like, or switching to a different instructor with a better time slot.  Sheesh, more Dating Game!

I mentioned Napolion's first trip to the vet's.  I still don't know if he's responsible for my flat tire, but I'm keeping an eye on him.  Speaking of tires, I had a lovely autumn bike ride this morning and decided to bring the helmet cam along.

I took a spin over passed MouseTown*.  Weather was beaut, but it's changing fast.  More snow in the forecast for tonight.   I didn't see any rare mice, as usual.  Here's the minute-and-a-half version:

  1. Hard to believe that you're already heading into your second semester of school! Seems like you just began. Good luck with the decision as to which math class to register for.

    Looks like you had a beautiful day for a bike ride. Cool to see your shadow as you ride!

  2. Love the Napoleon pictures :) The doberman picture made me flashback to a few vivid moments in my childhood. I love dogs, but I never extended that love to dobermans. Glad life is treating you well. Enjoy autumn!

    1. Dobermans are pretty type cast. Seems like all the attack dogs and zombie dogs in movies are dobermans.

  4. I suppose you could read a lot of weird stuff into that dream. My recurring one is that there are bathrooms, but no locks on the doors! I have no idea what that means.

    1. It probably means we should watch what we drink before bedtime.

  5. No bathrooms?! Sounds like a nightmare to me.
    I always enjoy going along on your bike rides. Looks like the mice AND the cars stayed away. Pretty deserted streets!
    Have fun playing the PEO field while you can. Soon you'll be settled down with just one. You wanna make sure it's the right one!

    1. It was a bit of a nightmare actually...
      And yes, the mostly deserted streets are my incentive to get up (relatively) early on a Sunday morning.
      I know the right PEO is out there, waiting for me.

  6. Looks like you have some great riding roads there! My husband just purchased some little mitts for the front part of his cycling shoes. It's the only part of him that has been getting cold on his rides this fall.

    1. This is a great time of year for bicycling. I've seen the little toe mitts, I've got the full-coverage versions!

  7. Actually it's probably good that there wasn't a loo on the plane, you may have used it. Enough said. :D

  8. Where was the traffic? Must have been Sunday when people were in the bed or in the church. :)

    You like to ride fast, I see!
