Survived first ballet class

I left pretty early to bike to ballet yesturday, but it only took about 23 minutes. I had some time to read last week's New York Times Magazine (I am so on top of things). The one drawback was that in that any warm up was lost in the wait time. One funny thing was that I was riding down one of the "bike roads" and there was this pick up truck driving very slowly and the street was very narrow with cars parked on both sides. I was getting impatient trying to figure out what the pick up was doing and I started reaching around to honk my horn, then I realized I was on a bike. What was I going to do, ring my bell at him? The class I signed up for is more of a beginning class which is good while I get used to ballet again. I do not need a lot of explanation, but there are areas where I need reminders and the time the teacher spends explaining things is a good time to rest. There will be a class that is a bit more advanced available on Monday mornings in the fall. That is better for my long term schedule and I will be physically ready for the class by then so I can really enjoy it. I am a bit stiff today, but it is not too bad.
I made Orange/Honey pork from my Freezer cookbook and David and I barbequed the first batch last night. Too yummy. We have enough leftovers that we can make some fresh rice after church, warm up the left overs, make a salad and have a quick lunch. The thing I love about making recipes from the cookbook is that I have two more ziplock bags in the freezer for later.

That's funny about ringing your bell at the driver. Good luck in your ballet classes. The pork sounds yummy.
