My New Wheels!

I've been so remiss keeping in touch with my blogger friends.  I've done little online reading and even less writing.  I hope you're still "speaking" to me .  I've missed you all!!  I'm on vacation and, at the start, I promised myself that I would do nothing whenever I wanted.  Except to perhaps bake now and then.  To read a quirky novel.  Hang with friends.  Entertain.  Visit the parents.  It's been fun.  Anyway, I feel renewed and would love to get re-acquainted.  Oh, yes, the icing on the cake during this period was getting my shiney new bike -- shown here in my flowerless garden (I need to work on that! yeah).  It's called an Hawaii Cruiser.  I don't know if you can tell, but it's a covered in white flowers -- even the big-ass seat (oops, can I say that?!).  Well, I don't care; it's really comfortable.  I haven't been so excited about a two wheeler since my first back in what was probably 1962.  In fact, I'm on it almost daily.  I just pedaled over to Katie's Seafood to buy some fish and lump crabmeat.  A man and a hungry egret stood next to me in line. I love Galveston island. You never know who you might meet.  I just stuffed a few jalapenoes -- the fruit of my dad's bell pepper bush. (He thought he had planted bells.... So it's a joke now.) I have some decorating projects on the newsstands. I'll give you the first preview tomorrow; it's of Joyce Horn's home. Any self-respecting Houston-based Francophile knows her name -- and her shop!

Hi Susan,

Only me!!! I have not called in for so long and I feel terribly rude 'cause I don't think I answered your email either and the question is are you still talking to me!!! Anyway, nice to see you are well and deserving of a holiday, love your new bike. A few years ago, my husband bought me a bike and I was so wobbly, having not ridden one for a few years (a car, a job and lots of freedom can do that to you)did you find that the first time you rode it, that you were awkward and wobbly too? Can't wait to see what your decorating projects are and I don't think I have ever heard of Joyce Horn, but it all sounds so exciting. Anyway, I promise I won't leave it so long next time. Keep well and take care

Love the new bike! What a stylish ride!!!

Glad to have you back! And love the new bike. If you ask me, that's the only kind of seat (and the only name for it!) any bike should have.


We have the same taste in rides- I have the island cruiser from Nirve it has the brown fenders with a touch of orange floral; I also have the wicker basket! I love it! My husband bought it for me for mother's day!

haute rides!

thanks for visiting my blog, always look forward to your comments!

I love the bike! It's a dream of mine to one day actually live in an area where I can get around by foot and bike only -meaning to get from my home to the beach, the grocery store and the bank, and not having to use the car. I'm just European that way.
