Though I couldn’t fall asleep until nearly 1:00am (!!!) I am once again awake early. I don’t know why sleep held off until then, perhaps the shame of another poor German class performance kept me up?
Hey, it’s Friday! Woot! The weekend weather for Atlanta is a crapshoot, especially tomorrow night when rain is predicted. 😢 Regardless, this weekend I will spend time working the backyard projects, do a walk with Betsy and Bella tomorrow morning, and see if I can convince Bonnie to hang out and maybe burn some of the drying Christmas trees sitting in the backyard.
This weekend I will also be starting to sow seeds indoors! Wee Little Farm (I was going to use another moniker since someone already owns that one — keep reading) will get kicked-started this weekend. Planting seeds will hasten the need to get my raised garden beds ready for plants.
Last year I had an idea to rebrand for future projects, not that intend to abandon Inside The Perimeter… I am considering branding my professional coding portfolio with the moniker “Ten Finger Apps” (apps written by one person). I then thought I’d call the farm “Ten Finger Farm” (a “farm” tended by one person). Basically things would be under the umbrella “Ten Finger” and then every subcategory would be “Ten Finger [subcategory]”. With this in mind I went to attempt to register “TenFinger.com”. To my delight it was available, to my dismay it is deemed a “Premium Domain” *cough* bullshit *cough* and the registrar wants $5000 to register it for the first year. Yeah, no. 👎🏽 I could make three more trips to the dealer for routing M6 maintenance for that! Or, I could make two trips and buy a new MacBook Air! Back to the drawing board.
This afternoon I plan to make an IKEA run to pick up something I have ordered, assuming I get a confirmation email today. [6:40am Update: email received] I am going to try IKEA’s “Click and Collect” service where they will bring the purchase out to my car. I have no problems with IKEA, even in COVID Times I find walking the store’s labyrinth somewhat mentally stimulating especially when there are fewer people in the store, but time is of the essence so I am going to see how this service performs.
I’ve noticed recently that Lurker has been lurking more than commenting, so this is just to get his ten fingers moving. I went to Publix. Yep, sure did. The one thing that I will certainly credit Publix for when compared to Kroger is their superior shopping carts. The Publix shopping cart rolled with ease, like a high-quality inline skate, and was a joy to use, unlike any Kroger shopping cart that I have ever toiled to push. I looked for BOGOs, but failed to find any that I wanted. Oh well, maybe next time. Speaking of Kroger, I don’t think I have been inside one in months since I have been doing all of my grocery shopping at Aldi. Now that I think of it however, I should stop for gas today on,my IKEA run since I failed to fill up at QT when I was down in Jonesboro on Monday.
Have a healthy and happy Super Bowl weekend everyone!
