Ana at Work (June 27 2014) (1)[i]

Waking up around 1 p.m.

Honey Crunch n Oats with Almond and Vanilla Almond Milk.

I noticed Ana left her toiletries bag in the hallway with all her make-up and face wash. I have to drive to a bike shop just past Rosemont so I figured I make a surprise visit to the O'Reilly Auto Parts shop where she works. I bring her a chocolate donut from Duck Donuts. She's very enthused to see me, which is obvious from her bright smiling face. She clocks out and we walk over to the Organic Food Depot. Sitting in a shaded spot under some trees enjoying the donuts together (I got a plain one for myself) – little flower petals float down on our heads.

Ana: "You and chocolate and donuts; that's all I need!"

Me: "No one's ever bought you donuts before?"

Ana: "No one has ever bought me donuts before!"

Getting a new wheel and tire at the bike shop off Rosemont.

Back home.

Scrambled Eggs. Everything Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Veggie Chips. Blueberries. Honey Green Tea.

At The Escape lifting weights and running.


Attempting to install the new wheel on my bike and other accessories. Turns out the wheel doesn't fit very snug so I'll have to go back to the shop tomorrow.

Lentils with Mixed Greens and Naan Bread. Milk Chocolate.

Watching Enemy (2013).

I really wanted to go on a night ride so I resort to borrowing Josh's bike since he's on the road trip. I take the usual route at the oceanfront cruising along Atlantic Avenue past the attention-seeking youngsters on the block, then speeding on the boardwalk past couples everywhere holding hands and snuggling on the benches. I catch a picturesque moment of a homeless couple that fell asleep in each other's arms. I'm tempted to turn around and snap a picture but I don't. These beautiful lone night rides are very important to me. It's therapy.

Back home. Kevin brought home a bucket of crabs from China Wok for $20. Him and Darren are cracking away at the table over newspapers.
