Another night of poor sleep, I was awake by 4:30am. I have managed to complete todayâ€™s Washington Post crossword, so I have that going for me…
I have a feeling the mail which was not delivered to me on Monday was delivered to someone else because on a lark I checked my mailbox around 7:00pm and lo and behold, there it was. I had gone out to the mailbox earlier in the afternoon and retrieved the piece of mail that was in it at that time. I suppose itâ€™s possible that the USPS made two mail deliveries yesterday, but I have my doubts.
Last night I mostly puttered around the house, made a delicious dinner of mushroom risotto in my Instant Pot, and watched some tv. There should have been ample amounts of German studying too, but I could muster only a little. I will have to force myself into doing some today.
This morning I had all but convinced myself to get to Loweâ€™s by 6:00am, which would have been easy with so much time to spare. After completing the crossword I got out of bed, put on some clothes, and then realized that none of the items on my list were vital to buy today. Combined with the fact that the only item I was going to stop into to Kroger to buy could easily be ordered from Amazon, I talked myself out of leaving the house. Instead, Iâ€™ve now washed yesterdayâ€™s dirty dishes and am getting ready to start my day. I considered doing yard work this morning, but that too has been scrapped.
I received and email from NBC altering me that the Premier League soccer matches are moving from NBC Sports Gold to Peacock Plus. Since I have no desire to assume another subscription cost, they will definitely lose me as a customer for that content.
My knee is feeling close to 100% today. Since I have given it two rest days if I can manage to find the time there really should also be some form of exercise on my agenda.
Hope you all are healthy and happy.
Coach Brady says a half hour on the trainer at 80rpm and not too much load.
A pretty quiet day yesterday. I was on my bike by 4 to get some exercise and check out a fallen tree I’ve been asked to remove. Thought I had a rear flat or a slow leak, but upon checking, it seemed just as I left it after pumping it up. This was the same wheel that was low on Friday’s ride with Bonnie, so clearly just a leftover thought.
I found the tree- you can’t miss it and I had to walk under it with the bike rather than go around. This will require some bonus engineering, so may leave it for the paid crew. If it was laying flat, I have enough saw, but hanging in the air is a problem.
Debbie wants to start watching Downton Abbey and I’m not sure I’m ready to be that much of an anglophile.
Uh oh, I have a new time suck in my life, I have learned that Netflix now has episodes of the 90s game show â€œSupermarket Sweepâ€.
NPR had a story this morning about the Netflix game show “Floor is Lava” and said it was great.
I believe today is still Tax Day 2020. Iâ€™m waiting for the state to withdraw the money I owe to them… ðŸ’¸
Correct. My 4k$ donation to the state and Feds went out Monday evening. I haven’t looked at the bank to see if it came out yet.
The State has made their cash grab.
My entire paycheck that I received today has been consumed. ðŸ˜¢
