Cool, warmer, rolling...

Another day of non-winter weather... I like this year's version of December so far.

When I started riding today it was cooler than yesterday, but the temperature eventually edged into the low 50s. The sky managed a similar change; I left home accompanied by a sky covered in clouds, light in some spots and dark gray in others. In fact it was so gray that I used clear lenses in my "sunglasses". The gray eventually parted and allowed some blue to appear. Yes, it was another good day for playing outside on my bicycle.

I think - no, I know - that I'm really getting spoiled. The first day of winter is just around the corner, and I'm sure that it will be a little hard to take when winter conditions hit.

December, relative warmth, bicycle wheels rolling, happy!
I had to stop and watch as this woolly bear caterpillar (what a great name!) slogged across the road, ending in a pile of leaves.

Reflections and ice! The temperature was in the low 50s this afternoon, and while it has been cooling off at night the last few nights haven't been that cold. I suppose that this pond could have frozen in cooler weather earlier in the week; I had to look twice before I convinced myself that there really was ice floating in the water.

This character was doing quite a job of guarding his mail box. From a distance I really thought there was a person standing there.
