At 6:20am I am sitting waiting for my breakfast casserole to finish baking. The coffee is ready, but I still sit in anticipation of eating.
Mostly due to the cold, wet, and dreary weather yesterday proved to be an unproductive day. Sure, I did laundry, which was the highlight of my productivity.
Last night Bonnie came over and we froze our butts off sitting in the carport drinking some beers. Fucking COVID! To warm our bodies I made dinner, an Instant Pot’s worth of delicious mushroom risotto.
Today’s agenda includes working, loading up recycling into Bonnie’s car as she thankfully takes our collective recycling to CHaRM, and getting ready for Thursday’s German class. If time and weather permit I may attempt to knock out an hour of yard work as well. That garden plot and pile of downed trees are obviously not going to prepare themselves!
Hope you are remaining happy and healthy.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 187.2 pounds (-1.2 from last week’s weigh-in); woot!
1/6th of my breakfast casserole consumed. Yum!
Todayâ€™s casserole consisted of:
1 can of biscuits
4 green onions
1 red bell pepper
2 jalapeÃ±o peppers
1 package fake Italian sausage
1 Tbsp minced garlic
3/4 cup almond milk
12 ounces of cheese curds
some â€œeverything bagelâ€ seasoning
A pretty miserable day yesterday, weather wise.
While only doing a 30 minute workout last night, I had to stop twice to recover- compact does not mean easy.
We watched the last episode of “Not Downton Abbey” we’ve been watching and began the new Non-Alex Jeopardy, with a nice opening by Ken Jennings, then I remembered there was a football game on! We went to bed at some point in the 3rd quarter, as Alabama had the Buckeyes well under control.
Happy Tuesday, friends.
As I am not a fan of either school I had no interest in watching the game last night. Only morbid curiosity got me to check the outcome this morning.
I don’t get your “Not Downton Abbey” reference?
I don’t remember the name of the show… something with a “B”?? Similar I’m guessing to Downton Abbey, or at least in the same time period.
I’m guessing Bridgerton? If so, I can’t decide if I want to watch it. I’m kind if period-pieced out.
Exactly. It’s a bit heavy on the “ton” (which I didn’t know was a word to describe the gentry) but it was harmless fun. A lavish production.
breakfast casserole sound good – I had a granola bar. I will be going to lunch sooner than later today.
Trying to get organized to go camping this weekend- its gong to be cold, but at least it looks like no rain at this point. I hope the bike trails are open…â€¦. freeze thaw rules make the trails closed more often than not in the winter.
Our friends that moved back to Florida from Guam are going – I told Amy I’d bring her some warm clothes- she hasn’t lived in colder weather for a long time.
No word from USAA on the camper yet – we are going to avoid their calls (if there are any) until after this weekend – in case they decide to total it.
Good luck with everything and enjoy the camping. On what day are you headed there?
We are going to be there from Friday thru Monday – 3 nights. Steve is coming over to ride & drink beer probably both days, Sara & Cameron may stop by too (Cameron broke his mtn bike, is trying to get parts so Allan can fix it for him).
Campgrounds have no visitor rules now (damn covid), so we have to put give the “guard” their names like they are camping with us. I can’t figure out how to do it on the website, so we will just do it when we check in.
You know, itâ€™s been nearly ten months and Iâ€™ve yet to see a mask with a built-in vaping device. Anyone? Anyone? ðŸ˜‚
Masks with straw/vape holes have been around forever.
I can’t imagine wiring up a mask with vaping equipment, you then couldn’t wash it. But I’m sure someone will get there eventually, as the envelope must be pushed continuously in our society in every direction possible.
Perhaps I donâ€™t get out enough then, which in this situation may be a good thing…
These masks that light up with RGB colors get you one step closer to vaping on board (just happened to pop up in my Twitter feed today): https://www.pcworld.com/article/3602818/razer-is-bringing-rgb-to-n95-masks-because-why-not.html
FYI, I received the Moderna C-19 vaccine today. Dekalb County, StoneCrest (old Sam’s Club) location. Register via the (overwhelmed) Dekalb County Board Of Health web site.
No side effects, so far.
The process was reasonably well structured and efficient. Traffic control by Georgia National Guard and screening for valid registration (I am over 65, however, others I know have registered and gotten vaccinated that are under 65, no questions asked), fill out a form, GA DL + form gets entered in “system”, queuing, two lanes of cars, to drive through a big tent with vaccine and nurses, you get an official CDC “I’ve been vaccinated” card (showing date of the second dose), then you move into a 15 “timeout” holding area to check for any adverse reactions and…..that’s it.
It took me just at 40 minutes, drive up to departure, including the 15 holding period. I had a 8:55 am appointment, arrived (30-40 minutes) early and they took me straight away, no problem, no questions asked.
When I left there were only a handful of cars in the queue.
I’d strongly urge anybody interested in getting vaccinated to do so ASAP. You do not have to be a Dekalb resident to use the Dekalb resources, it’s a statewide thing.
I’ll post a link shortly to the registration site, under separate cover.

Link for C-19 vaccine registration:
Pro tip: refresh often, slots open up….sporadically.
I only registered yesterday, initially I got no availability for all of January, but kept refreshing the page and got an 8:55 am slot for today.
Again, you do not have to live in Dekalb County (or apparently have to be over 65) to register and receive the Moderna C-19 vaccine.

Thanks John, I’ll keep an eye on this page.
