I’m reserving the term “shitty day” for the worst that can happen, but yesterday was close to a “shitty day”. On Saturday I had a good walkabout with Betsy and Bella, and then followed that up with a few hours of sub-standard paver laying and then some quality tree cleanup. At one point on Saturday night I went to sit down and had a strike of pain in my left knee. Upon waking yesterday morning my knee continued to be painful and problematic. This was the worst my knee has felt since pre-surgery two months ago. ðŸ˜¡ By now I expected to be completely healed and rehabbed. I am continuing to monitor the situation.
On my walk up to meet Betsy I picked up another small bag-load of trash. This is the third or fourth time Iâ€™ve done so prior to a Betsy walk. While I certainly wish that this was task unnecessary, I do feel a little civic pride by picking it up. I should have also scored a free circular table for the backyard, but I decided to wait, and when I went back an hour later to claim it the table had already been claimed by someone else. You snooze, you lose!
Other than my knee pain my weekend was good. I already mentioned my walk with Betsy, and sandwiching that was fun time spent hanging out with Bonnie.
On Friday night Bonnie walked over to the ITP Estate where we consumed beer while burning wood and branches of drying Christmas trees. This is exactly what I was anticipating when clearing that area of English ivy last summer.
Yesterday Bonnie and I did a little brewery touring. We started the day down at Red’s Beer Garden where we each had a beer with some lunch. From Red’s we drove over to Elsewhere Brewing in The Beacon. This was my first visit to this new brewery. The beer I had was fine. And finally we made our way to Halfway Crooks Brewing in Summerhill. This was the first time that I have been to Halfway Crooks, and at least get a beer; the last visit was aborted at the end of a Monday night trail when we found that their kitchen had already closed.
Prior to going out I sowed my first seeds of 2021. I sowed fifteen seeds, three seeds of five different pepper plants. My plan is to stagger sowing in an attempt to stagger when the vegetables ripen. Also coming soon will be the sowing of tomato, cucumber, and all sorts of other vegetables.
At 6:30am I am on the fence about going to tonight’s Moonlight Hash. Obviously if my knee is still hurting, which at this time it is, or the weather doesn’t seem agreeably, or I can’t ensure that I can eat outdoors, or if I just decide that I want to remain at home alone, I’ll not attend.
Hope that you had a 100% happy and healthy weekend.
