A Biking Day

Thursdays we rarely need the car; instead, we do our errands by foot or bicycle.

At lunch Papa grabbed the DVD we had rented yesterday, and dropped it off at the video store on his way back to work.  He rides his bike to and from work unless it's raining.  He usually walks when it rains because he doesn't get as wet.

This evening we biked to the farmer's market.  We locked up the bikes and trailer and walked the market in search of local, organically grown produce.  Tonight's purchases were bread, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and eggs.  We stopped in the second hand store and found a pair of shoes for T-Guy; J-Baby bought himself a vintage toy.

Then we went to Trader Joes.  We don't need to go weekly, but we're going out of town this weekend and wanted to stock up on safe lunch and snack foods.  The fact that we were using the cargo trailer helped us remember to leave the impulse items at the store.

This month we are working really hard to walk or bike all errands that can be done without a car.  When we do need to drive we will try to do as much as possible on that route.
