Well, kids. this is historical (for me) (maybe), but I haven't had a migraine, and I've only taken Advil once in nine days. I can't even remember the last time that happened. My body, in particular, my kidneys feel so much better. I have no idea how long this will last, but I intend to appreciate the hell out of it, and see what I can get done while it does.
Since it got up to 48 degrees, we decided to ride the Lone Tree Loop. It is a 40 mile, mostly flat bike ride that goes from Iowa City, through the country, and then through Lone Tree (where John's dad's family is from), and back to Iowa City. I love that ride, especially when I'm heavier and not happy to pull all this extra weight up hills.
When we got back to town, we were going to try to go to Shakespeare's to eat and have a beer. We won't eat inside because we're old and don't want to catch the Covid. They hadn't cleared the snow off of their beer garden. We tried Big Grove next and they were ridiculously packed.
We decided to get some beer and fire wood, and order pizza from The Wedge. It turned out to be way better than going to a beer garden to eat, and so much cheaper.
As you all know, I lllllooooovvvve a fire.
We ended the evening watching the Snow Moon rise over the trees as the fire died out. We packed a lot into that one day. I'm hoping tomorrow is even half as much fun.
