Treating myself to coffee and pumpkin bread for breakfast on this wonderfully cool, if not humid, morning.
Not much to report in my world other than the expected confirmation that State Farm is no help when it comes to windshield repair. According to the person with whom I spoke, they pay for any amount over my comprehensive deductible of $500. Since my estimate from SafeLite is $390 itâ€™s pointless to file a claim. Poop.
On the brighter side, I managed to toil in the back yard for another 2.5 hours yesterday afternoon. Itâ€™s coming along, slowly, but progress is being made. Iâ€™m still going to need a ton of help clearing the remaining 80% of jungle.
Also needing a ton of help to avoid relegation is my beloved Werder Bremen. Their chance of remaining in the top flight went from â€œslimâ€ to â€œalmost noneâ€ thanks to the unexpected tie and win pulled off by the teams directly above them against teams who are in the top three positions of the standings.
Iâ€™ve been watching YouTube videos showing how to clean and restain wooden decks. I did the job once, and hired a handyman once, and am trying to figure out which way to go this year. If I didnâ€™t have so many expenses piling up the decision would be a lot easier…
Hope you are staying healthy, friends.
(Steve, where did you eat lunch yesterday?)
