Snow's a falling..
And despite needing Winter gloves for the last bit, today was actually quite warm. I could use my Autumn gloves which gave me enough warmth. I was actually too warm biking up to mall with my down jacket on.
I completed my Christmas shopping, then I biked to grocery store. I didn't feel like biking home to drop stuff off and then bike back to grocery store in the strong headwinds coming from the South, so I carried my gifts with me while grocery shopping. I had to show the clerk when I paid that the gifts were from another store(s), but that was totally understandable.
I also snuck some geocaching in as I wanted to drop off 2 geocoins that I picked up at the Ancient Forest Travel Bug Hotel What a great day to be on a bike, the sun was shining, it was fairly warm, and I got to do a few things today while being out of the house. And I've just went over the 4600 km mark now..and heading to 4700. I got a few scratches on top of the diamond, not sure where those came from. Got my 'black' stickers standing by if I ever should need them.
Speaking of geocaching, 6 days after I hid it, and 4 days after it was published, someone found my Grand Canyon of the Fraser cache today! I was worried that I got the coordinates wrong, even though I came there twice that day to double check readings on my GPS. I had originally left a note about that on my listings page for the geocache, but decided to remove it and see if anyone had troubles finding it. Then I would go back out the 70 kms to get another reading. Whew! But the fact that someone found it without troubles means I don't have to do that. I suppose that being a newbie at this has it's moments. I am glad that I can confirm that I know how to use a GPS.
