So Earl worked this morning and I did some routine stuff for work (it’s an on-call weekend). We did our obligatory workout at the gym and then when we got home, we looked at each other and wondered what we wanted to do for the rest of the day. I wasn’t really in the mood to sit at home; the weather being quite nice for this time of the year, so we decided to go for a ride. Armed with two computers (one personal, one for work) and a cell phone, a husband (and his cell phone and computer) we hit the road and headed north.

I decided to take some back roads through the Tug Hill Plateau and then climbed up into the Maple Ridge Wind Farm, where I snapped a new photo to commemorate my favorite road to drive in Upstate New York.

We then made our way up to north of Watertown, where I wanted to be a complete geek and check to progress of Interstate 781.

We are now stopped at a Panera, where we are enjoying a tea and splitting an oatmeal cookie. We are not ready to eat supper yet, that will come along in another city along this ride, but for now we are content. Actually, we’d really be content if the wi-fi at Panera was actually functional. This crazy “maybe it will, maybe it won’t” approach to wi-fi doesn’t really lend itself to building consumer confidence in technology.
