Arm warmers at 63?!?!

I know! 63 is WNBR weather.

It's been a wonderful morning here, but I've been working :(

Will go for a ride after it gets to 100

I decided to wait until after work to ride when it's a steamy 70 vs the 41 degrees it was when I woke up.

It was 54 here but that was at 7:30 when I arose.

Third cool morning in a row. We're not due for 'the change' for another month, but there will be no complaining if it comes early.

After a beautiful weekend in the low 80s it's supposed to go back up near 100 starting tomorrow. Tuesday riding friend wants to do a climbing ride.

Not that far from me. We could meetup if you're coming through this area or The Walkway.

No arm warmers for me unless it's really cold. Here is my guide:

63+ Jersey/shorts
55-62 add gilet
50-55 gilet plus legwarmers
40-49 armwarmers or long-sleeve jersey, leg warmers, and gilet
32-39 add another layer for torso
<32 add winter jacket (not marigold, sad.) and possibly coated tights

edit: may tweak slightly based on sun/no sun and wind speed

The little lady made a Dutch baby, and I made some blueberries in simple syrup.

No one "makes" blueberries.

They usually don't have to try hard, either.

no. Sporadically. I'm on a 30 min walking schedule now since my left foot can tolerate it. Also eating mustard and pickle sandwiches on wheat English Muffin to try to lose some weight.since I'm a fatty and out of control.

I didn't ask about that. I asked about your alleged food, which seems at odds with the food photo you posted just yesterday.

I made blueberries in simple syrup. Sauce pan, high heat, add sugar, add water, boil 'til syrup thickens almost too much, remove from heat, add blueberries, put on burner on low heat 'til the blueberries just soften and syrup has taken on the colour of the blueberry skins.

Kinda like how you don't "make" Lark's tongues, but you do "make" Lark's Tongue in Aspic.

I am really lucky with my toes. If above 35F just regular shoes. If 30-35 I use neoprene "toasties" that cover the front of the shoe. Less than 30F I use neoprene/insulated booties which work great down to about 15-20F. If lower than 20F I throw a chemical toe warmer into the bootie. Luckily it's super rare for temps to be below 15F.

I am not as lucky with my fingers and when it gets below freezing I often have to use glove liners AND mittens, which are fine down to 20F and lower than 20F add a chemical warmer.

Today is day one of my lunch plan. I began cutting back breakfast last week. If you remember, I only ate half on Saturday and had the rest for lunch yesterday.

I only managed to get on my bike once this weekend for a quick SS MTB ride. However, I did get to watch my daughter play her first softball tournament of the fall season with her 18U team. She was on FIRE at the plate. Over 4 games, she went 6-for-9 with 2 home runs and 4 doubles, and lead her team in RBIs (7) and runs scored (5). Unfortunately, the team struggled defensively, with uncharacteristic errors by talented players, and handed wins to the 2 teams that made it to the championship.

Mustard on an English muffin.

Gross.
