Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Heartland Trail Bicycle Trip

My DH and I completed a 20 mile ride, on the Meijer Heartland Rail Trail, last Sunday afternoon. We had been preparing for this ride for several weeks. However, we had not accomplished such a long trek. It was a beautiful day and the trail was easy to ride upon - no hills. It was very serene. We stopped half way, for a break and snack, at the city park gazebo. We watched a great blue heron scoop fish out of the pond before flying off. Then, we rode back the way we came. What a delightful day.

We're already planning our next big outing. We want to eventually ride the entire Meijer Heartland Rail Trail loop from Alma to Greenville, a centruy ride. For those who don't speak cycling, that's 100 miles. We probably won't do that until next summer, over two days. This 50-year-old grandma still has it!

I got a package in the mail today from Ethelbird & Eliza Kids Fabric online fabric shop. They are right here in Lansing, Michigan. I purchased backing fabric for my Hungry Catepillar quilt. Very Hungry Caterpillar Numbers Blue Here's what the backing fabric looks like. I finished the top and will have my long-arm friend quilt it. Just have to piece the backing and make the binding before sending it off.

Enjoy!

Keep up the biking, girlfriend. I had to give it up years ago and I miss it so much. Enjoy every minute you can. I can't wait to see Hungry Catepillar!
