Seems I’m not the only one dragging today. I am sitting outside the Waschsalon to do three large loads of clothes. However, I am not as lucky as I was last time when I was able to start before 7am, because it’s now past 7am and it has yet to open. This is my third fail already today. I was planning to hit Lowe’s before laundry, but wasn’t feeling motivated to do so. I thought a cup of coffee would help kickstart me, but the coffee machine at Krispy Kreme was “completely down”. And now this.
My weekend was filled with fun as well as a few bits of news that have knocked me down a peg.
Friday night I joined Bonnie on a trip to Marietta for bike repair and Tasty China. It was good to see Steve and Debbie at Barb’s and Allan’s too.
Saturday Bonnie and I made one more Hop Passport stop, this time at the German restaurant and brewery in Stone Mountain. We didn’t eat at the restaurant because we proceeded that trip with a stop at the newly-opened Grass VBQ, a vegan barbecue joint. After having our beers we returned to East Atlanta where we visited Sabbath Brewing for the first time. The brewery isn’t officially open but they were hosting an artists market and selling their beer as well. I was pleasantly surprised.
Yesterday was a hashing day, where I hobbled through 2.5 miles of trail with the other walkers. Before the hash I dirtied my hands in the morning by doing a couple hours of yard work, mainly pulling English ivy and a bunch of tree saplings that I decided I should take out before they grew too large. While it required a little exercise, pulling the saplings was made easier by the English ivy keeping the soil loose combined with the rain we had the night before; I must have pulled at least twenty saplings. I crashed hard and early last night, by 9:30pm I was “completely down”.
Hope you had a fun filled and healthy weekend.
