July 27, 2018. Today was new bike day and new kitchen faucet day. First, the bike, which I picked up and immediately took for a 50 km test ride to Chesterville (from Embrun, where I bought it). Here you see it at the park in Morewood on the way back. It's a tad heavier and slower than the old, but that much more sturdy. Meanwhile, Andrea was installing the new kitchen faucet, which arrived by courier yesterday. It took some work (and a trip to Cornwall for a wrench that would solve the old faucet) but as I type the water is flowing successfully.
