1. Raven's puppy dog eyes come out in full force when she wants to get on the bed. The trick to resisting is to NOT look into her blue eye. If you look into the blue eye, you'll give in to whatever she wants.

Somehow I managed to make two trips there this weekend, and it brought me back to my college days spent in their cafe, writing papers until closing. Barnes & Noble was always more calming than the library. Maybe it was the smell of coffee.
3 & 4. More bike riding went down yesterday, and I realized that you'll never notice how many hills are in your neighborhood until you try to bike/run them. The views, however, are well worth the cardio.
