I did two hours of yard work yesterday, mostly taking down privet, young magnolia trees, and dead limbs. In the process I probably created three more hours of cleanup, but many of the felled limbs are incredibly straight and long, so I will use them for future teepees/trellises in Wee Little Farm. I am one good (long) day of cutting to get to my “final” planting airspace, and a good number of fires away from burning the wood that can’t be repurposed.
After showering to clean off my yard work stench I sat down to relax before making dinner. I was quite happy until I read the news that Eddie Van Halen has died. I had no idea he was 65 (of course I find it hard to believe that I am 55), and that he had cancer.
Even though I did a lot of yard work, it’s highly unlikely that I lost weight because my dinner was delicious but extremely caloric. I ate a fake chicken sandwich, with two substantial pretzel sticks on the side. I will strive to do better today.
Last night I tried to pre-order my Hop Passport for 2021 only to find out that it won’t be offered in Georgia next year. I reached out to the Hop Passport folk, and they replied telling me that since Georgia brewers cannot offer discounted beer, they won’t be in Georgia again. I know that bars in the City of Atlanta can’t do beer specials (Happy Hour pricing) but I swear I’ve seen it happen in other parts of the state. Is this a new state law? How did they get away with it this year?
I was going to go out and do some yard cleanup this morning, but alas I am tired and sore, and feeling like I should get into my home office and crank out a little work instead.
Tonight I will be making a freestyle Thai dish using my Instant Pot. It’s another recipe that will use up more of the things that I currently have in my cupboard, refrigerator, and freezer. Woot! And of course I will be consuming it while watching an old episode of Top Chef whilst texting with Betsy.
Hope all is happy and healthy in your world.
