Winter Into Summer

I don't think I will ever get used to the seasons here in the east coast. Crazy brutal winter gets slightly milder in March/April but still needing a winter jacket and then BOOM! it's summer where you can't even wear a light jacket, it's just straight to short-sleeve or no-sleeves, from wool leggings worn under pants to shorts and sandals.

I'm not complaining really, especially because it is finally warm! and, I got a bicycle!! (more pictures later)

It's a British bike made by the Dunelt Company. It's a pretty bike. It was chosen for me by Tony. I had no idea what I was looking for when we went to the bike store. I was initially attracted to the 80's style road bikes but this older one (from 1962) suits me much better.

I spent last Sunday with Josh and Tony and we biked to the Brooklyn Flea. It was fun and I was relieved that I was able to ride (I was secretly a little worried about whether I would be able to have the strength and the nerve). I am looking forward to my next day to ride, probably over the weekend if the weather is nice.
