IT’S FRIDAY!!!!! Hope you’ve all had a good week.
Last night was the first German class of this quarter. All was going well until we started getting into vocabulary and grammar expected for which I am currently enrolled, at which point the wheels came off my cart and I was lost. Again, I may need to reevaluate my German learning at the end of this quarter to see if the money I am committing to Goethe should be spent elsewhere; I have nine weeks to figure that out.
Other than German class yesterday was boring. I never left the house other than to get my mail. I also made a batch of hard-boiled eggs of which I promptly destroyed two of transferring them from the Instant Pot to the ice water bath. 🤦🏻♂️
It’s 6:45am and I’ve already been “at work” for fifteen minutes. Of course I was awake early, 5:15am, after a fitful night of sleep (or lack thereof) and have already reheated and eaten breakfast, and washed a sinkful of dishes. My goal is to quit work early, getting my eight hours in straight through, and then go work the yard for a few hours this afternoon. With an immense amount of luck today I will be able to plants some garlic bulbs, mark out my square plot, and then lay a cornerstone and perhaps one of my raised garden beds. Back in June of last year I should have started recording the backyard transformation as a YouTube channel. 😂
Tonight is the annual Southern Comfort Christmas Tree Burn hash. This event is usually one of my favorite outings of the year, but of course this year is different. Because of COVID there will be no food served this year (dammit, I was going to eat meat tonight as well!), and because of my meniscus rehabbing I am still not comfortable running a hash, especially at night. Depending on the news I hear later, and my engagement in the back yard, I will probably go to the end and hangout drinking a beer or two while watching the trees go ablaze.
Tomorrow is a crapshoot. The only item on my agenda currently is a walk with Betsy in the morning. More yard work? Perhaps, perhaps.
I’m going to buff by the end of this garden plot construction! 💪🏼
Sunday is a Black Sheep Day! Of course if I go I can still only bimbo and do a little walking. Someday I want to return to being a real hasher. 😢
Have a fun and healthy weekend all.
