i biked out to allston-brighton to do the install for client N. instead of going the more direct way down mass avenue then across the JFK bridge, i took some side roads to avoid the traffic
(essentially the route i'd normally go if i was still running these days). so much easier without all the rain (like it was the last time i was here more than a week ago). i've got a few typos to fix for tomorrow and i should be pretty much done. leaving their office, i watched a bird land in a tree some distance away. i had a suspicion it might've been a hawk of some sort, and a few minutes later, it flew across overhead. it was a kestrel.
from there i biked along the charles river bike trail over the eliot bridge to my parents' cafe. i had to ride over some frozen grass turf at a few spots, my bicycle rattling like it might fall apart any moment. once i arrived, my mother was showing me some of the stuff my 2nd aunt brought back with her from taipei.
i finally got around to finishing the last of my pulled pork. i was having it for lunch and dinner everyday and was starting to get a little sick of it.
