A nice spin of a ride after work. I just wanted to get some light riding in, so I figured a nice spin on the Mt. Vernon Trail would do the trick. Nice ride, not crowded. Got to see some of the DCA tarmac action, which is always a treat, and saw some families of Canada geese getting ready to head south.

some updates

A few updates on things, as I’ve been quiet of late:

  • The trip to Utah was a trying experience. There wre some fun bits, like mountain biking, going to the yarn store with sprite, drinking coffee at SLRC. But a lot of it was tough, dealing with family stuff and trying not to go crazy. I was happy to come back – perhaps the most evident sign of that being that the only photos I snapped on the trip were taken on the journey home. When I head out there in January, there will be a few considerations in terms of lodging, etc.
  • The day after I arrived back in DC, I spent all day working the DC primary election. I was Ward 2 coordinator for the campaign to re-elect Phil Mendelson to his at-large DC Counsil seat. Speaking for my own Ward, we did really well, taking slightly more than 80 percent of the vote. Unfortunately, not all Ward organizations for Mendelson’s campaign were as attentive to their poll workers, resulting in sprite having a less-than-positive experience at her polling location in Ward 6.
  • Speaking of the DC primary election, I’m mostly happy with the results. Adrian Fenty should be a good mayor for DC, bringing a new attention to constituent services and shaking up the old Democrat establishment in the District. Vince Gray, though not my pick, should be a good chair of the DC Council. And Mike Panetta will be a fun “shadow” representative.
  • We ate out at 1789 Restaurant on Wednesday night (after my class) for our anniversary dinner. The food was lovely, the service cordial and attentive, and we had a great time. 11 years with sprite, and I couldn’t think of a better partner in life and love.

With that, I hit the sack.
