It seemed like not too long ago, life was a series of lengthy blog posts about training, racing and whatever else I felt compelled to share.  But lately, life has been really busy for me and it has become a series of photos stored inside of my beloved iphone.  Or iPhone.  Or however you spell it.  You know what I'm talking about.  It's that awesome gadget that sucks as a telephone if you're using AT&T.

Part of the "being busy" aspect of my life is moving our home from one house to another house.  And with a new house comes new purchases.  As we were hunting for the perfect [fill in the blank piece of furniture], I came across a pair of stools which had this printed across the top. 




I have no idea where these will go or whether they will even end up in our house, likely to end up in my office but it's definitely something I believe and I had to have them.

While preparing to sell our previous house, the fixer-upper-dude broke a mirror in the bathroom and uncovered buried treasure a message from "Dave"...

 



Despite all of the moving, I managed to whip up a tasty dinner for Christmas.  Yes, it's been that long since I've blogged.  Our tradition is a bleu cheese crusted filet mignon in a port wine reduction sauce.  I'm good at it.  I'm also really good at eating it.  NOM NOM NOM.



With the new home came new bike routes.  This to me is the most exciting part of moving.  Ok, not really, the house is kind of cool but the new riding and running routes are definitely keeping me entertained.



Sometimes you buy a home because you need more space.  Sometimes you buy it for the view....



No, I don't own that land.  Who cares, it backs up to our home.  It's the yard I've always wanted without being required to mow it.

Even though I've moved up the road a bit, I pointed my bike back in the old direction and I traveled down a familiar road.  I think I have a thing for taking pictures of windmills....



Random -- i was somewhere (?) and I saw this...



And at the local pet store and I saw this....



Of course I'm getting out of order with the pictures so let me get back on track with a recent road trip....





Which eventually landed me on top of a mountain, right here...



I knew I was among good people when I saw these guys....



Life takes you to some interesting places sometimes and you never know when you'll end up in a room with John Cobb.

And you walk away with....



Because you thought it might be a good idea to purchase one of these...



And compliment it with various gadgets such as this....



Triathlon has consumed me since 2008 and with each year that passes, I want to learn more.  My latest path is taking me down the road of bike fitter / wrench / I don't know what but when I figure it out, I will let you know. :)

Meanwhile, in the real world, there is much happening.  I heard that Lance guy gave an interview but from what I gathered, it was mostly a bunch of...



I took this ^^^ photo while on my journey and I knew it would come in handy.  The Lance sentence seemed like the perfect opportunity.

And while there are liars and cheaters on the news daily, my hope for humanity is not lost.  While leaving the gym, I found this note on my car from a very nice person...



Thanks Tom, whoever you are....
