Knocking out a quick blog post today since I am going to the Waschsalon (!) and then into the office (!!) at least for a couple of hours. Last week we were told that we should ensure to remove all of our personal affects by the end of the month. Though I made an initial pass back in December, today I will do a final one.
The reason I need to go to the Waschsalon is because I have a load of clothes covered with Georgia red clay from my backyard. My progress to complete uncovering the brick path, and marking out and leveling my garden space has been glacial due to encountering so many roots. Bob, I will say that the digging bar I bought on your referral has been very helpful. When I am done uncovering the brick path I will have to figure out how to fix the spots that have become uneven due to the roots that have grown through and under it.
After spending about three hours in the backyard during the freezing cold yesterday, some time was spent around the small fire I built to warm my hands and feet, I finally gave up. I assumed that after a warm shower and rest I’d be heading out to meet up with the hash. But that didn’t happen. Realizing that I would be spending the day at home, I went back outside for a couple of (thankfully warmer) hours and chopped up downed branches. Holy shit do I have a lot of cleanup work ahead of me…
It was good that I did yard work yesterday because I shirked it all day Saturday. Before the sun had even considered rising I had paid visits to Kroger, Lowe’s, and Target at Edgewood Retail District. Later in the morning I picked up Bonnie and we did the budget-conscious trifecta — Dollar Tree, Value Village, Aldi — but not on Moreland, the ones on Memorial. I found items at each, but Bonnie was the day’s big winner buying two pairs of Vasque hiking shoes. Neither of us were intimately familiar with the brand, and when I used my iPhone to look up Vasque I discovered that each pair of shoes that she was trying on retailed for around $180 (!); I don’t recall how much Bonnie paid for each pair, but I think it was in the $13 range. Granted the shoes weren’t brand new, but they were in extremely good condition.
Saturday afternoon found me at Betsy’s house, backyard really, where a Christmas tree fire was built and Chinese food was consumed. Because we are all so much older now, the gathering was over early and I was home by 8pm (!). 😂 I probably was able to stay awake until almost 9pm (!) 😂😂.
Hoe you were able to stay warm, happy, and healthy this weekend.
