It hasn’t been sunny every day, but we have had a couple of very bright days. If January would just continue in this vein. January 6 is Three Kings Day. I have no pictures of the three kings making their rounds, but there were a lot of cyclists out in the mild weather. Janos’s bike was out of commission so he rode my back-up bike for the 7 km to our friend’s home where we had lunch together. The sky on our way home was dramatic with a bright ribbon of light on the horizon, again foehn.
The next day I was out on my own on one of the loops from home. When the sun is low in the sky, there are many opportunities to catch a sun burst as the rays of light shine through the branches. I took many pictures. I think the one below is my favorite.
My ride on Saturday took me past the little St. Alto Chapel in Leutstetten. The sun seemed just right for a photo and I bagged my picture for the day.
On Sunday I was invited to my granddaughter’s for afternoon tea. It wasn’t sunny but not too cold with the proper clothing. I wore my heated gloves and it seems that one glove ran out of battery in a bit less than two hours. I probably won’t be riding my bike in the cold for longer than two hours so that is satisfactory for me.
Monday I was very busy and the cold wind didn’t tempt me to try too hard to fit a ride in. Today is Tuesday and the weather in the morning again deterred my from riding to tai chi. Janos said he would drive me, but that plan backfired when the car didn’t start – and it was too late to get there on time by bike. So no tai chi and no bike ride. Again this afternoon I have other things on the agenda. Let’s see if I get out tomorrow – bad weather in the forecast, though.
