Quincy and I had the house to ourselves most of the weekend, as the Chief headed out of town to visit friends. With the snow coming in fits and spurts but never amounting to much, we puttered around the house with our tasks. Quincy did a good job eating, staring out the window, and barking occasionally at mail trucks and dogs he doesn’t like. I worked my tail off, but I’ve never felt more rested. Maybe it is from getting things in order, or maybe it didn’t feel like work.
One major task this weekend was to finally clean up the basement, which had boxes in the middle of the room which hadn’t stirred since we moved in over a year ago. I put up new shelves, and cut up a large amount of empty boxes to get recycled. It was the perfect amount of room for my new toy!
Bicycling Magazine gave this little guy a great review as a value-priced magnetic trainer. It wouldn’t be the first choice if your are a serious competitor (which is one of the reasons I don’t really like Bicycling Magazine sometimes, it seems too focused on competition), but for me, it’s wonderful. I had a great workout on the trainer already (although I was breathing like Fatty McGee). I got it from Perfomance Bike, which has loads of great equipment at damn good prices.
I also watched two movies, read three newspapers and four magazines while managing to get a mess of website work done and write my first press release. It makes me wonder how much more productive I would be if I spread out my workday like this; taking long breaks instead of cramming everything into 8 hours.
