Happy Friday all.
Last nightâ€™s dinner was a melange of things that needed to be used before they went bad, so I whipped up an Instant Pot udon noodle dish using the bag of coleslaw mix, box of baby spinach, yellow bell pepper, and jalapeÃ±o pepper. It was pretty good, but not great.
This morning I was once again up at a little after 5am. Why? Because I am old, probably. Regardless, I sprung out of bed, as quickly as one of my age and weight can, to start to dayâ€™s epic battle â€” Oven v. Air Conditioner! Thatâ€™s right, I figured the only way the air conditioner could have a fighting chance today was to start it cranking while the temperatures werenâ€™t brutal as I raised the temperature in the kitchen by baking a loaf of pumpkin bread. So far the battle is a standoff but I expect that the air conditioner will eventually lose.
On this Friday I have decided to give myself a day off from laundry duty. The decision was easy since I caught up yesterday thanks to doing my wash after working out, and seeing that today is going to be a warm, but humid day. More time for work! ðŸ™„
Today is Mac â€œUpgradeâ€ Day as I am finally installing Catalina, the operating system (OS) Apple released last year. While I am reticent to install the latest OS on my nearly-six-year-old MacBook Air, I am starting to find more reasons to upgrade in order to get the latest software development tools and languages that come along with the updated OS.
This weekendâ€™s plans include a walk with Betsy tomorrow morning, which unfortunately coincides with the time some people will be out riding the Beltline, and driving all the way up to effing Cartersville to hash with Black Sheep on Sunday.
I talked to my mother briefly last night and was bummed to hear that her bingo didnâ€™t actually happen on Wednesday since there wasnâ€™t enough people present to play. Oh well, at least she got out of the house and was able to interact with others for a little while. Bingo is her version of hashing, or perhaps hashing is my version of bingo…
Have a great weekend, all.
Attempt to remain healthy my friends.
