The Planner Guy and I went on our first bike date since November and I was all excitement that he would be wearing the new, intensely yellow and extra noticeable jacket I found for him at Red Thread Sewing last week. Bob remarked earlier that week that he needed something more visible to wear in to work in the morning, especially that the route includes stretches of heavily traveled road without bike lanes. Jason Hughes, the creator of this MTI Adventurewear jacket, runs the Wet Dreams Sewing and River Supply side of the studio. Although originally designed for keeping warm and dry on the river, I noticed the school bus yellow jacket immediately upon arriving to pick up my alternations. The jacket is almost completely impervious to wind and water, making it perfect for the upcoming monsoon season when an unprotected bike commuter can be completely soaked in minutes. Bob will be able to wear it year round.
Here I am in my equally bright, red, suede car coat. And, yes, I am wearing pearls, which do nothing to enhance visibility on the road but go with everything, including bicycles.
Here is Bob (you can't miss him in that jacket), locking up our bikes at Woodlands Village Center. We always have to find a free rail because no bike racks have been installed. Bob and I are frequent diners to both Teppan Fuji and Taverna Greek Grill, both located at Woodlands Village Center so I suppose I can request that they speak with the building management company about installing some racks.
Bob and I have been visiting Teppan Fuji, originally Sushi Fuji, once or twice a week for about 3 years. Recently, we've been ordering Yakisoba noodles and Garden Vegetable maki rolls. Delicious and pretty enough to photograph. I intended to take a photo of it but got too excited and before I knew what happened it was all gone.
As a consolation prize though, I'm ending this post with a shot of tonight's dinner, created at home by Chef Bob - vegetable stuffed chicken breast with black beans and Mexican rice.
