As I sit in my den listening to the overnight heavy rains come to an end I am lamenting the fact that I didn’t accomplish more in the garden yesterday, and that I left a leaf bag outside which is almost surely useless now. I have an excuse of course, a rehabbing knee that limits my maneuverability. I am trying to be “good”, but it’s hard not to try to take advantage of a sunny, mid-60s day in December. My current antibiotic prescription is also limiting my fun, as I am also trying to do the “right” thing by not consuming alcohol while taking them. I am also preparing myself for a higher scale reading tomorrow.
My weekend was spent mostly at home, gathering around a fire on Friday night, and puttering on Saturday and Sunday.
As you can well imagine I watched a lot of videos this weekend though thankfully I avoided watching my sports teams, all of whom lost this weekend. I am still trying to appreciate “Schitts Creek”, have exhausted YouTube, rewatched some “Great British Bake Off” holiday one-offs, and have watched the first three episodes of “The Queen’s Gambit”. I really wish that I had spent more time, any really, learning new coding skills, reading, or garden planning. Oh well, I can’t roll back time.
Given that Christmas is in eleven days (!) I assume that this week I will ramp up my holiday viewing of Rankin Bass shows, “Elf”, “A Christmas Story”, and so on; maybe I will try to get into the spirit by listening to Christmas music exclusively.
This is a friendly reminder that COVID hasn’t gone away â€” a buddy of mine tested positive on Friday. He’s young and in good health, so I expect he’ll be fine, but still.
Hope that you had a fun weekend and that you are remaining healthy.
