|two bags of bags (stretch plastic that can't go in the blue bins) and one of stinky compost|
First I went to the grocery store(s). I take my compost to Whole Foods since they make their bins available to the public.
|Pretty full, but I've seen worse|

It was fairly windy, and there's one stretch of Green Street (right outside the Green street Grille) which is this crazy wind tunnel- I notice it often, and this day, it was so bad I had to stand up and pedal to keep moving forward in my lowest gear!
|Despite the wind, it's getting warmer, and there are signs of spring in the yard!|
Once the spaghetti was simmering away, I headed out into that wicked headwind to Target, (a store that is not a grocery store) to return a bunch of Jason Wu stuff that I had ordered online and then was too large to fit :( I was riding on autopilot a bit, and ended up on the Home Depot side of the road without thinking about it. Since I was there, I stopped in briefly to get some clips for wiremold. Because you never know when you'll need them right? I couldn't resist browsing the garden center, but honestly it's not THAT warm yet. Last frost here is supposedly 5/3, and we're supposed to get snow later this week.
When I was coming into the parking lot, I passed a guy biking out with a trailer full of building supplies! And here I thought I was (almost) the only one! I rang my bell and waved, but couldn't get the phone out fast enough to get a picture.
At Target I returned stuff, and bought tax software and lip balm. Somehow a bag of Easter candy managed to find its way into my bag too :) and some long lasting lip color, which I'm surprisingly excited about- it's hard to find colors in target-style cosmetics, and I lucked out with this one.
I headed back "inland" through my old stomping grounds in east Watertown, and stopped again at the Star on the Cambridge line to grab a couple more red peppers for snacks at work this week. I neglected to get any pictures, but unlike a month ago, it wasn't totally dark at 5pm! Then home to make enchiladas, and stay up way too late watching the Oscars! I'm going to see if there's anywhere that's still playing Hugo, since the only way to see the 3D is in a movie theater.
12.6 Trip to the grocery store approx 2.3 miles
12.7 Trip to store other than grocery store approx 6.2 miles. Wasn't really dark, but my dynamo lights are always on for extra visibility.
