I finally got out for a ride Saturday afternoon. With a break in the weather, several other riders were also out enjoying the second day of the new year on two wheels. I had planned to kind of take last week off or at least make it low key. I say "kind of" because I don't officially get vacations. Since I work from home I'm still responsible for the work flow even while "off". The plan was not to see too many customers in person and also prepare for the new year.
I ended up getting sick last week. I haven't had a cold in about two years. Last week made up for the gap in time. But Saturday was a good day to get out on the bike and just ride without a planned destination.
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to just take off around the country without a plan or itinerary? No specific time to be anywhere or be back home. I wonder how it would be to travel that way on a motorcycle. Everyday would be a different adventure in a new town.
I haven't been by this field in a while and I was surprised to find cabbage growing. Cabbage in January? I'm a city boy so I don't know much about growing seasons. With the threat of snow and/or ice always looming I wouldn't think January would be a big growing or harvest month. But to make sure I wasn't seening things wrong I did a Google search and found there actually is "January cabbage".
When you think about it, it's kind of amazing how food makes it from the fields to our dinner tables. We can freely go into any grocery store and buy food and it's abundant. Not everywhere in the world is that possible.
I hope you've been able to ride this new year. If not, I hope it's safe to ride soon. Get out there and find some cabbage.
