Heading off to Chemotherapy in 20 minutes with my good friend Rhonda Weidenbeck of Beck’s Bakery, a hot new bread bakery in Arcata…well, about to be up and running. The equipment is rolling in, and she is shooting for August 2012. Locals, watch for her loaves on the shelves! We’ve been friends for a long time so I have witnessed the evolution of her bread baking, and just general awesomeness in all arenas (knitting, gardening, raising chickens, cooking, etc).
This girl has many interests, researches every nook and cranny of making bread and geeks out on the science behind it all too which is fun. Rhonda has been in our book club, the Brainy Book Babes (B cubed) for ten or so years and we have all had our share of her delicious bread. I am looking forward to the 5 hour drive south with her, and then of course, north tomorrow afternoon. These long drives with a friend certainly contributed toward the appeal of traveling out of the area for my chemotherapy treatments.
Today’s Pedaling Each Day ride was about two miles. The whole family joined me. Taylor is getting a bit big for the trailer so I am not sure how much longer this will work, but for now both kids love it and it enables me to share my ‘riding for a cause’ with them.
I best finish packing for chemo. More from the front-line tomorrow. I’m bringing the ipad!
