How I avoid the Bummer Life

I go here

And read stuff and giggle at things that I may not admit in public to giggling to.

And then I steal something for my own blog.

All these bitches checking out my britches

This song along totally makes up for all the weak songs last week.

My Jemaine crush just got bigger. 

Their randomness kills me. Whats Bret doing wearing a Prince outfit in the kitchen?

Drive By Vineyard

Drive By Vineyard, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

I had my real camera with me in the car this morning. I really really should have stopped.

Too bad my job isn’t to drive/ride/walk around looking for lovely things.

Can’t Katch Up

Bear Creek Aspens, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

I was too busy before our Ketchum trip, too busy during, and now too busy afterwards to get a decent post going.

Hopefully soon…

In the meantime, enjoy the Aspens

This Old House

My Barn, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.


I got my car insurance renewal paperwork in the mail the other day, and it said I qualify for a new discount because I have 25 years of driving experience.

25 years?

I flipped the letter around to make certain it really was addressed to me.

Then I got on the 10key just to be extra sure.

41-25 = 16

I am too young to have 25 years experience doing anything. I’m not even really an adult yet.

I am not usually one to be hung up on age, and mostly its not something I think about. And 41 really is still young.

But sometimes I am reminded in ways I’d rather not be reminded. Like the other day I went to get my eyebrows waxed. And I am like most of you bike racer types, getting my eyebrows waxed is not high on the priority list and its probably been a few years since the last one.

So I am laying on the table and the estetician is putting the wax on (this is the part before the part that hurts). I notice that she is also putting the wax waaaay up on my forehead. Not just my brow, but my forehead. Maybe she’s thorough, I think. Or maybe….maybe I have brows on my forehead.

I asked myself out loud “since when did my eyebrows start growing out of my forehead?” And the estetician sweetly responds that its normal for that to happen as we age.

So there’s that. Brittle bones and eyebrows on our foreheads.

Exeter Time Trial, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

Its Monday and I have a neuroma.

And I hope this won’t be a whine post, but it just might.

The neuroma is killin me. I thought I was a tough chick, but this little bundle of nerves has brought me to my knees.

Michael says my Danskos are probably to blame and that I shouldn’t wear them anymore!

Excuse me?

Have you seen my shoe collection? If I don’t wear Dansko’s I am left with only a pair of flip flops, an old pair of running shoes (as if), some cheap ass Target garden clogs, my go-go boots (that I can only wear for about 7 minutes), and lots and lots of Sidis.

So I went online to look for neuroma friendly shoes. I don’t suggest that anyone under the age of 80 ever ever do this. Ever. Not even to just look. Its that scary.

So, now I am walking around the office in my socks and hoping for the best.


Everyone’s racing but me. I’m not really sure how I feel about that yet.


Sulpher Springs is every bit a tough climb as I remembered. Are climbs ever easier than you remembered? And, I’m sorry Beth!


Doesn’t Michael look like a little misplaced cloud in that photo above?


So, I’ve been too busy to blog. And too busy to do bella stuff…but not too busy to work on Michael’s new site or my pictures. I have had a great time working on Michael’s blog and tinkering with it, and getting community interaction going on it and almost breaking the interwebs and stuff. I think it means that I needed something new to fiddle with. So, there you go.

Cabin Fever

The Morning of My Content, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.


Double Ack!

Its raining a thousand rains right now, with those little teaser breaks that make you think maybe, just maybe…then it comes down again.

Yesterday was nice, but I need more…I still have energy to burn.

But not enough that I want to get on the trainer or anything. Maybe just go see a movie instead.

This tree is in my neighbor’s yard. It gives me hope.
