I had hoped that I would be able to ride my bike this morning. I was eager to get out there and enjoy a nice bike ride as a way to start the day, but Mother Nature had different plans. It’s currently 40 degrees and raining quite hard. The picture doesn’t really capture how hard it’s raining but you get the general vibe in the snapshot.

The Carpenters’ “Rainy Days and Mondays” is going through my head but I’m determined to not let that deter me nor dictate my mood today.

I feel energized and ready to tackle the weak ahead. I guess I just need to stare into a sunlamp and listen to some feisty music this morning.
