Oh crap, itâ€™s Monday already? It seems as if I blinked my eyes and the weekend is gone.
On Saturday I went on a nice walk with Betsy and her dog Bella. I walked to her house, from there we walked around East Atlanta, and then I returned home to spend the rest of the day doing little more than watching â€œSilicon Valleyâ€.
Yesterday I drove over to Bonnieâ€™s and from there we walked down to the Beacon (Eventide Brewery) to shop at the farmers market and pick up some beer. On the walk back to Bonnieâ€™s we stopped at Grindhouse on Memorial Drive to pick up some Impossible burgers to eat at a social distance on her porch. The rest of my evening was spent watching more â€œSilicon Valleyâ€ (See a trend? Iâ€™m trying to finish before HBO turns off the free streaming. Today I start the final season. In rewatching â€œSilicon Valleyâ€ I am cringing often and itâ€™s making me uneasy!) before crashing early. Oh yeah, at some point my internet speed essentially went to zero and I became so frustrated that I fell asleep listening to a podcast.
The only other thing I did worth mentioning were two loads of hand-washed clothes which I dried using the power of the sun. Yesterdayâ€™s load was hung using the camping clothesline that I have.
A nice day to drive to… almost Athens Saturday to pick up the new sign. It’s lovely, about 4′ in diameter. A horse chasing a hound chasing a fox, all around the edge, with Celtic designs in the middle. Now we need to work on a farm name involving a chase.
I rode Saturday afternoon and don’t know what was wrong. Mostly gravel, had finally taken a shortcut to get home via the Bear Creek trails. Had a section I had to walk, got off the bike and had to hang on to it to keep from collapsing. Low blood pressure, I suppose. Didn’t really “feel bad”. Going to check with the cardiologist…
Cut grass and “pulled weeds” around the house. The little enclosure surrounding the heat pump had trees growing, along with P.I. and I pulled it all out. (scratching myself). Should have joined Barb and Allan for pork butt, but Debbie was feeling a little puny all day.
Stay in good health, friend.
I was going to inquire about the pork butt.
pretty busy weekend for me.
Friday night when to H5 at the Highland Hardware parking lot by George’s -lots of people showed up, without counting I’d say about 20. We all bought beers & food from George’s – the girls working were so appreciative. and fried cheese curds did hit the spot.
Saturday – went on a walkabout around Marietta – went I think about 5.5 miles or so – forgot to turn on my watch, phone, etc at 1st, so my mileage was a little less than Davey’s. Stopped at Schoolhouse for some beers, found a picnic table across the parking lot, so we weren’t on their property. Beautiful day to sit outside.
Sunday pork butt was tasty, didn’t get a good crispy crust, but tasted just fine.
Sal & Donna (Breaststroke) joined us, took to go boxes over to the in-laws.
Still have way too much pork left, but I’ll figure out something to do with it.
Also did another 5+mile walk to a friend’s house to water plants, and cut the weeds out front by the road. Grass isn’t growing all that fast, but the weeds are. Someday we will sod that front section, someday.
and – saw your picture on the FB with Betsy & the dog, taken by Amy (is it 69 rpm?)
Yeah, that was who it was; we happened to be walking on the same street at the same time.
I was going to go to H5 with the group of cyclists but I gave up my spot at the last minute. I knew I missed cheese curds, ugh! A fun birthday weekend for me! Saturday I finally got up the nerve to ride around the entire Beltline on my MTBâ€”25 miles!!! Beltgrind, baby! Jackass was the leader of our social-distanced group and thank goodness as I could never figure out some of the route, even with a map. The ride wasnâ€™t as hard as I thought it would be, but the mud and muck didnâ€™t help and I got stuck a few times likely because I ride too slow. (That reminds me, I should give my bikes baths today.) Paulie already described Sunday, and it was great to see my friend :). The husband came home from work and we ate (more) takeout and cheesecake and watched a movie. It was also Nigel catâ€™s birthdayâ€”he turned 11. Some photos will eventually be posted on Facebook. ðŸ˜
Dean was telling me about the Beltgrind ride, Allan always has to sleep all morning after getting off shift, so I knew we couldn’t do that.
Maybe the next one, though I’m not sure I’m up for that 25 mile ride on my mtb bike right now – and I don’t think my skinny tires would like some of the areas.
I would love to do that ride. Back in the old days when I used to take MARTA to work, I would go over the Beltline where it crosses Lee St. and Murphy Ave. Rarely did I ever see anyone on it. It’s even well lit at night (early morning).
Iâ€™ve wanted to ride the Beltline for awhile now, but am not ready to be around that many folks at one time. Itâ€™s just wasnâ€™t the right time for me.
I dropped the cardiologist a note.. wants to see me Wednesday!! That’s either real good or…
hopefully it was just 1 of those days, dehydrated, something.
keep us posted.
