I’m trying to avoid using my right wrist and arm as much as possible this week, but I’m dying to get back on the bike. The wrist and forearm pain seems a little improved this morning, and I’ve not even taken my anti-inflammatory yet. I’m seriously thinking about hopping on my road bike and trying to get a fun little neighborhood ride in before work. By keeping it in my neighborhood I’ll be able to quickly abort and return home if my wrist starts acting up. No Strava, no Garmin, no smartphone… just me and my bike.

We have these showy petunias in one of our backyard hanging baskets. We'll be planting more than 100 petunias in the ground tomorrow.

Lisa is off from work tomorrow, so I’m thinking about taking a personal day and doing some gardening with her. It looks like we’re past any serious chance for another freeze (Central Florida has experienced sub-freezing temperatures in March, but those are very rare events), and so I think it’s a relatively safe bet to get the annuals in the ground. We’ll be planting more than 100 colorful annuals in the front gardens–probably mostly petunias, which bloom constantly and are very showy.

We’ll also be planting this year’s crop of herbs, tomatoes and peppers, and we’re both very excited about that. We’ve not finalized the list, but you can be sure that it will include basil, rosemary, dill, cilantro, a couple different varieties of tomato, poblano peppers, sweet snacking peppers, serrano peppers, bell peppers, jalapenos and habaneros. I’ve got all the containers prepped, and the potted plant automatic irrigation system I installed last year is programmed, adjusted and tested. I can’t wait!

Today is the FINAL DAY of the AtLarge Nutrition 3-day mega-sale! Today’s deal is pretty awesome: 20% off your entire cart today, and 20% off your next order. Don’t miss it!
