NO COFFEE FILTERS in the house.
I’m surprised you guys didn’t hear me yelling, “NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” from where you were.
I searched hi and low in the kitchen, the pantry, even in the storage closet for a SINGLE coffee filter.
I even entertained the idea of just eating the coffee grinds.
So, with an inevitable trip now necessary to the local grocery store, I thought to myself, “Now would be the perfect time to ditch the car and just ride my bike up there.” I have panniers to hold the coffee filters, and I was planning on heading there anyway to get the Sunday paper.
So, off I went. The route was easy, even though the beginning of the ride is a bit uphill.
I took it at an easy pace, and just enjoyed the quiet morning ride. Made it there w/o any issues. Got my stuff and headed back. Panniers are the best invention EVER for a bike. Let the bike carry the load.
I’m not a “greenie” or an “environmentalist” by any means, but I gotta tell ya, it felt good not using my car do to what was doable via bike.
Tomorrow, if the weather cooperates, I’m going to leave the car/van home and ride to the bus stop. NO GAS tomorrow! 🙂
