Friday, yes, Friday…
Once again I am up before the sun. Normally I am quick to turn on some music or launch a podcast, but today I have decided to start my day in relative silence. Relative, because I have my window and deck door open and I can hear the wildlife outside even over the din of the box fans I turned on in an attempt to exchange some of the slightly-cooler air outside for the air that currently occupies my house.
Yesterday Bonnie mentioned the joy of repurposing items. Today (or perhaps tomorrow) I will become Captain Plant-It! Well, not really, but I do intend to put some pants and seeds into soil, and that soil will reside in old half-gallon milk cartons and styrofoam egg cartons that have been cluttering my house for months due to the COVID closure of CHaRM. The items I intend to plant are some rosemary sprigs, seeds from a red bell pepper and a jalapeÃ±o pepper (both of which I cut up the other night), and the pit/stone from a peach. The peach pit planting will really be to (hopefully) experience the wonder of growth from something that looks as if it could never give life.
My weekend plans are mostly unset. This afternoon, 6pm EDT, I will be watching/listening to another live stream concert performed by Dropkick Murphys. You may recall the last time I did this was March 17th, at the beginning of our pandemic shut-in, which seems so long ago to me now.
The weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday looks great. Hell, I will probably hash one one of the weekend days. I should probably find time to do some yard work as well.
Hope you are successfully staying healthy friends. Have a great weekend.
