Family/social mtb ride with the SIMBA clan

Went to a social ride hosted by the local mtb group --- it was great to be around some people I hadn't seen in a long time and especially to meet some of their kids. We did some easy laps on the church trails, and I rode a couple of obstacles that have been too intimidating in the past. Watching others ride and then following their line was very confidence-boosting.

In the evening, Steve and I made a fire in the fire pit out on the driveway and set up a table for the trick or treaters. This was kind of the norm in our area, since ringing doorbells was discouraged. I have to say we had a really good time sitting outside and actually got to talk with some of our neighbors this way.

The house next door is probably going up for sale soon. There was an elderly man who lived there and he passed away earlier this year. His kids had an estate sale there today and told us that almost all of the furniture was sold. They were pretty emotional about it, it's tough to see your parents' belongings being parceled out.

Walking in the morning

So over this project. It's due on November 4th, so just a few more days of this.
Went to meet Steve and his friend Larry at Chipotle for lunch today, only to find that they've reverted to takeout only. Illinois' Covid is rising and the governor has been threatening to lock things down again, but this must have been some kind of corporate mandate.

Locally, our mayor is following the example of other communities and saying that he won't use police to enforce the coming ban on indoor dining. There's been a lot of pushback from the restaurant industry on this, with many stating that if they are shut down again, they will go out of business, so they are going to just go ahead and remain open.

Another hectic day at work, also had some warranty work to get taken care of on my van. I'm so grateful for Steve -- he whipped up a really good dinner.
Have been assigned a crazy time-consuming project at work, too wiped out when I got home for any kind of workout. Sat in the chair and watched Halloween movies.

21 Day Fix Extreme - Upper Body

Worked in the office most of the day --- it was kind of a cold and rainy day so good for being indoors. Met up with the roadie bunch for dinner. One couple is headed to Florida this weekend and had just cleaned up their garden and had a plethora of garlic and butternut squash. I took a small bag of garlic and one of the squash -- not sure yet what I will do with it.

Supposed to be cold and rainy today. I've got an appointment mid-morning to get new tires on the van, and this afternoon have a project kickoff meeting via Teams. Good day to be indoors
