Day 243 – (AD 1,405) – 21.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled my Schwinn 170 for my allotted 1 hour and recorded 21.0 more miles. Totals now at 29,799.1 miles; 47,957.1 kilometers. The best number of my calculations Is that I finally have completed 78.00% of my intended journey.


Meanwhile, on Mars, I have finished 61.8% of 440 miles to my next goal point.

Tried something completely different for supper last night – Moosewood’s Huevos Rancheros.


It’s almost a complete vegetarian meal, depending on whether you call eggs not vegan. I believe the term is “Ovo-vegetarian”. Check out “Types of Vegetarians” by Jolinda Hackett at The Spruce.

Wondering if they give out certificates or diplomas.


Question – Recently I “do not have permission to delete this item(s)” on my iPhone via my PC. Previously I was able. Previously I had “Administrative” control, now it is telling me that I don’t. Does anyone have a suggestion?




Update on MTBD – All quilting completed, The appliqué is done. Now on to the label.

Day 242 – (AD 1,404) – 20.7 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This late morning, I pedaled my Schwinn 170 20.7 miles. Totals now at 29.778.1 miles; 47,923.3 kilometers. Anticipation is mounting at the odometer turning the 30-thousand-mile mark.


And I have now completed 57.1% of the distance to my next destination.

This morning in our entrance somehow a large dragonfly got inside.

I have always been intrigued by dragonflies. Not the darning-needle types, but the ones which are a beauty of creation.

I put it on the kitchen counter fearing that one of The Pack would think that it was a tasty morsel. It looked like it had seconds to exist.

It then crawled up on my finger and then jumped to my shirt. I then took it outside and placed it carefully on a fern-leaf on a palm in the sun.

It rested for a bit.

Then flew away.

There’s more to worry about than the media scooping the stories concerning statues and inanimate objects.

Day 241 – (AD 1,403) – 21.2 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled 21.2 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are 29,757.4 miles; 47,890.0 kilometers.


And I completed 52.4% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.


I’m beginning to see my A1c calculation move in a downward direction. This morning the number was 6.59%. On August 4th I topped at 6.66%, which was the highest my A1c has ever been

And yes I know I have diabetes. I'm just to ensure I take control.



Last night’s supper was a Shrimp and Strawberry Salad. I sort of followed an Old-Bay Shrimp Salad recipe that I found on line and sort of up the ante a wee bit. Instead of mayonnaise and lemon juice for the dressing, I used some Tzatziki Sauce, Lemon Juice, and Olive Oil.


I’ve been asked several pointed questions regarding Andy and my quilting processes. Stay tuned for the questions and the answers.

Day 240 – (AD 1,402) – 20.6 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 20.6 miles. Totals now 29,736.2 miles; 47,855.9 kilometers.



And I have finished 47.5% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.



Last night's supper - Venetian Rice and Smothered Cabbage. I'm glad I got off my butt and cooked.

Found the recipe at https://food52.com/recipes/27213-marcella-hazan-s-rice-and-smothered-cabbage-soup



Thoughts today –



Just wondering whether I am practicing on my piano enough or not enough as I daydream I am seeing music and following the sequences of 1/8th notes.







Still monitoring my diabetes and trying to figure out what is a good glucose meter. My doctor now has me trying Kit #3. Must have to do with the type that is covered by my medical insurance company.




Update to MTBD - Most of the quilting is done. Yes, it was done on a domestic machine. Just a little bit more and then the appliqué.




Working on genealogy can be somewhat confusing. Which GGG-Grandaunt Marie Anne (née Schwimmer) Brunhammer is which?
