Woot! It’s a day of celebration at Port Sundown. We made our final boat payment! Sundown is all ours. Well actually, we’ve had Sundown’s title since we bought her. We took out a loan against one of our 401k retirement accounts and paid for her in full, so the monthly payments with interest we’ve been making have been to ourselves.

It’s winter time in the Rocky Mountains. A Siberian cold front has settled over Colorado and temperatures have been cold! That hasn’t stopped Clay from working inside our sailboat, Sundown, however. With a propane heater blasting, he’s been rebuilding the former icebox compartment, making it more accessible with a hinged top. We plan to add a refrigeration system to it, too. Check out the photos of his handiwork  I added to the Photo Gallery.

I’ve been busy knitting Christmas gifts, but I can’t display them publicly yet. Doing so would ruin some surprises. I also have been working a lot, including shooting a fun TV show about how to maintain healthy habits throughout the holidays. It was taped on location at The Cupboard, a wonderful kitchen and foodie store in Old Town Fort Collins. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed hosting it.

We did it! Clay and I, plus 10 of our new closest friends, completed the League of American Bicyclists instructor course! After an exciting ride through downtown Fort Collins on Friday night, several skills tests, group and individual presentations, and many teaching scenarios and discussions about how to teach bicycling safety, we are now “LCIs in Training.” (more…)
