Welcome to February.
It was kind of a tale of two different days weekend, though the weather disappointed me both days.
On Saturday I walked with Betsy and then returned home to work the backyard. Sadly my garden plot project is frustrating me and when I realized that I was starting to do less-than-stellar work I had to take a break from it. I have three of the five beds in place, but have to find a lot more dirt and do a lot of work to get the final two in place and lay the rest of the pavers. I was able to do some of the other chores I had in mind and my little birdie friend paid a visit, so the day wasn’t a complete wash. The evening was definitely fun as Bonnie came by and we had some beers while sitting around a fire; we even saw an opossum walking along a fence, and Bonnie saw an owl.
Yesterday morning I awoke feeling sniffly with a runny nose. Sadly because the weather was shit and I never felt 100% I skipped Black Sheep; at least this wasn’t supposed to be my triumphant return to running trails. However, it was exceedingly depressing to me not to attend even though all I would be doing would be a little walking and beer drinking.
Yesterday I also made the decision to pull the plug on the idea of visiting the Raleigh Royalty for the Super Bowl this year. As to be expected many factors led to my decision, including COVID. I thing my decision is the “right” one, but it bums me out a bit.
Today I am at the Mazda dealership in Jonesboro. I’ve brought the M6 in for routine maintenance, as well as finding out about an issue it’s having. I ran the numbers for getting a new car this year (a Subaru Crosstrek) but don’t think it’s a wise financial decision for me at this time. Yikes, this routine maintenance visit is very expensive just for the routine maintenance. I know, dealership pricing, but it’s more than $200 more than the highest estimate that I would have guessed. Still cheaper than a single car payment, however…
Hope your weekend was a complete success.
