It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… What do you mean, no!?!?
- On Monday I finished watching “The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition”.
- This week New York received over a foot of snow.
- It was 29°F this morning when I went to Lowe’s for more cheap “top soil” (it’s really mulch marketed as top soil, but at least it’s all I need and cheap) to backfill my garden beds.
- Yesterday I received my first Christmas card of the season, which was oddly postmarked on December 22, 2020. I guess the USPS has caught up and is getting ahead of the game this year!
I will say that it was a bit odd to receive a Christmas card from my brother one day prior to his birthday. I mean, he is a master of sending cards late, but this was impeccable scheduling!
Happy Birthday, Bro!
(btw- once Apple’s expected delivery date for the MacBook Air I want to buy is fully in March I may pull the trigger. I have to wait in case I go to Florida for mom’s birthday. I’ll let you know.)
Yeah, I went to Lowe’s again… I may get out into the backyard for an hour or so this afternoon, and definitely will tomorrow. Not only do I want to start making more progress toward completing the garden plot (soon I will need to have plants in the raised beds!), I have a bulk waste pickup scheduled for next Tuesday and need to get more debris to the curb before then.
Besides, I need the exercise. 🙃
What else is new?
I sat around watching YouTube/Netflix/Hulu videos last night; that’s not new.
I struggled to get software downloaded so that I can work on some side projects for my professional portfolio; that’s not new.
I didn’t do any German studying last night; that’s not new.
My knee still pains me a little, my elbow more than that; that’s not new.
So, I guess nothing else is new!
