Let's Talk Life

Alright, so life has just seemed to pass on by without me taking any notice what-so-ever!  I think I am going to have to turn this into my personal/fun/business blog.  So, I will begin with the personal side of life.    Yesterday, I was a little somber due to a rat!  Yeah, you heard me a friggin rat!  Carson, my son has owed a rat for several years.  Now this is not just an ordinary rat, this rat had style.  Anywho, a few months ago little Mr. rat who we called Nike got a tumor on his leg that just grew and grew.  I thought it was just a gas bubble that would pop, but after two different surgeries poor little Mr. Nike had to get put down.  His leg was seriously the size of a small pear.  I cried and cried over a rat.  Oh, the hormones.

I always tell you how much I love my little life.  Jenny came over for a mountain bike ride the other day.  We did some exploring through the peaks of our local National Park.  The cool thing about the ride was we just left from my house.  There are some amazing rides that I had no idea about - right in my back yard.  We had an amazing time, but after just about an hour of climbing I had the perfect excuse to not continue.  MY SEAT!  Yeah, my seat had slowly loosened itself up, and moved it's way all the way down.  Now, if I were a prepared bicycle rider I would have had all of my tools and necessities to fix the problem.  Well, I didn't !  My goal is to help self educate myself about lame bicycle issues so that I can teach my fellow riders how to be prepared.  So, in future posts I plan on educating other's about bicycles while learning and educating myself in the process.
Brian has been extremely busy with some new builds.  I went down to the paint booth and took a few snaps of his paint job.  Most bike companies can weld, but how many of them can weld and paint?  Brian definitely has some serious talent!  I get impressed every time I see him in action.  Talk about action . . . I'm celebrating 16 years of LOVE to this man on Friday!!!  Or maybe it's just 15 and it might be on Thursday.  Anywho . . . . Life rocks.

HEALTH UPDATE:
I am so proud of my ability to drool over chocolate now and not SNARF it down.  I am down a total of  9.5 pounds and happy to say that I can climb on my bicycle a little faster each day.  My goal this next week is to hit the weights.  Thanks for all of the encouraged thoughts.  You guys are awesome.

Id like to invite everyone to read a blog post today of a woman who joined the old order Mennonite church from the outside. I'm extremely lucky in publishing her very first, and most likely last post on Amish Stories. A lot of work was involved in her getting permission to be even able to write anything on the internet, and permission was given by her bishop. So please stop by and read about a woman who gave-up her car and other worldly possessions for the person that she loved. Richard from Amish Stories.

Welcome to a new attitude in women's cycling and a first in women's specific titanium and steel custom bikes. We know females....because we are females. All women share a common interest. We want to feel comfortable, confident, and strong on our bikes. We also want to look good while riding hard. At Bellarosa we build bikes to fit you using only the finest materials.
