Bike Ridin', Possible Foster Doggin' and the end of Google Readin'

It's hard to believe that July 4th is next week!

What happens on the 4th of July....

Winter lasted so long and then we finally had the Memorial Day weekend (and road trip) that announced the official arrival of summer and now it's time to put on the red, white and blue.  

Dear Summer,  

There is no need to rush so fast.    Slow down.   Sip some sangria.   Laze by the pool.


In traveling news, I now have a trip for the fall.  YAY!  Heading to the Caribbean again in November for a little sunshine.     And now on to other things happening this week:

Bike Ridin'

In the mean time, this weekend is the Colorado Bike MS.   3000 cyclists hitting the road to raise a few million for the Colorado-Wyoming chapter.   The highlight of day 1 is seeing the awesomeness that is our team tent in Ft. Collins.    The highlight of day 2 is crossing the finish line and getting a cold drink.    Last year was insanely hot.   I think this year it's only going to be moderately hot.  

Possible Foster Doggin'

I've been dog-less for almost 9 months.   I'm not sure if I'm ready to adopt another dog, but I have gone to the orientation training to foster service dogs on the weekends.   More to come, but it seems like a good opportunity.    

The End of Google Readin'

Google Reader is shutting down July 1.    I've been using it to follow blogs for the past few years, especially catching up while on the train to work in the morning.   I'm going to start by trying out Bloglovin'.   It's been recommended by other bloggers that I follow, so I think that's a good place to start.   

A few quick questions for the comments...
1.  How hot is it where you are?
2.  Have you ever been a dog foster parent?
3.  What site do you use to catch up on your blog reading?
4.  What are you doing for the 4th of July?

  1. Fostering a dog sounds like a great way to get accustomed to having a pet, thanks for this suggestions!
    It's pretty hot and humid where I live (Hudson Valley, NY), but I'm trying to appreciate the mornings and evenings more since they're such a nice respite from the rest of the day.
    Looking forward to some fireworks and seeing friends on the 4th! Have a good weekend :)

    1. I'm looking forward to the possibility of dog fostering. The dogs stay with the training organization during the week, but they want them to have a lot of different experiences with different people and places.

  2. 1. How hot is it where you are?
    We're in the same place - I think it's pretty toasty!

    2. Have you ever been a dog foster parent?
    All my dogs have been rescues, but I have never been brave enough to foster. I think it's great that you're doing it!

    3. What site do you use to catch up on your blog reading?

    I use the Blogger Reading List - I am exploring options though.

    4. What are you doing for the 4th of July?

    My Mom is coming to town next week. A SkySox game is on the agenda for the 4th - shocker, the Killmers going to a baseball game. :)
