With arctic air covering the Southeast I know one thing for certain, I shan’t be mounting my bike and riding this weekend (“How is that from almost every other weekend?” I can hear you ask. Sadly, it’s not.). One day I should probably reach out to Little Willie and ask for my trainer back. I lent the trainer to him so he could recover from his knee surgery a few years ago; apparently he’s as efficient at returning things as I am. I think the theme of this weekend will be “Try New Things”, you know like being a responsible homeowner. Heeeeeey Ooooooooh! I’m here alls the week…
I Went, I Gave, I Helped
I made two donations yesterday in support of Georgia Gives Day. I gave to Goethe Institut (if you don’t know why you haven’t been paying close enough attention), as well as to my beloved Horizon Theatre. The latter contribution, along with all others who donated from 8-9am, also helped them win an additional $250 during their assigned “Power Hour” drawing. Huzzah!
In looking through the list of charities on the Georgia Gives Day website I am bothered by the number of pet/animal rescue organizations out there. I’m not bothered that they exist, I’m bothered that they have to exist.
I would have made more donations yesterday but I have already donated to a few of my favorite charities earlier this year and am not made of money.
Their Money Must Grow On Trees Now
I heard that the Atlanta Botanical Garden will be opening a new garden in Gainesville, Georgia. While good for those who live northeast of the city I certainly won’t be donating any of my disposable income to ABG since they obviously have enough to expand to open a garden far enough away for me to ever visit.
I needed a night alone last night so I left work and headed directly to Costco. If I were less hungry and in a better mindset I would have popped into the nearby LA Fitness before shopping, but that didn’t fit my schedule.
After eating my dinner consisting to a slice of pizza and a Pepsi, $2.76, I roamed the aisles talking myself out of buying things I don’t need while trying to justify buying a larger-than-needed quantity of those I did.
I have to admit it, I actually love shopping at Costco and am thrilled that I rejoined this year.
By the time I arrived home, after wading through annoying traffic, put away all of the goods purchased, I did a few things on my computer, caught up on Top Chef, and then dozed off to sleep under a serious amount of covers.
Looking forward to seeing some of you at Red Hare Brewing and then Tasty China. The spiciness of Tasty China will be much welcomed tonight.
