I had to take a break from things election and generally electronic yesterday. Nothing happened at home worth mentioning, although it was a brilliant Indian Summer day. Today was more of the same.
The election hasn't completed the media prediction phase. Contested states seem to have tipped in favor of Biden, but no new states have been called. According to the AP predictions, AZ and NV are Biden's, but the other predictions have those two states still "leaning." GA and PA both "flipped" with a now growing span for Biden as the last arriving mailed-in ballots are being counted. It's exciting and exhausting.
The wife took a little break in the morning to go get her hair touched up and do a little grocery shopping. I took a little break in the afternoon with a motorcycle ride with my riding pal. A beautiful day for a motorcycle ride.
I did have a small hiccup coming home. Starting from a stop at a light, my boot got oddly wedged against the foot peg, and I couldn't pull it free before my bike tipped over! We had stopped at a light, and I was holding the foot break, and leaning to the left. The light changed, and as I tried to pop into gear, I leaned to the right. In what's usually a fluid exchange with right foot going down as left foot goes up, resulted in bike slowly smashing over.
We righted the bike, pulled it over. Quick once-over, and we were back on our way. A few miles later, a little throbbing in the boot, mostly heel and toe, let me know there was a little smashing that went into it, that I didn't notice in the moment.
I got home, and put the bike away. Stepping on the foot brought some discomfort, but nothing more than a stomp from the kids might give. I took my boot off and the discomfort is abating. Some ibuprofen and elevation, and it should be fine.
Tomorrow looks to be just as brilliant, so I'll probably have time to finish bagging the leaves, and maybe get those that have fallen since raking last time.
