Yesterday afternoon I made a quick trip down to Value Village and Dollar Tree. While I had no specific reason to go to either, I wanted to get out of the house and was trying to see if I could satisfy some “needs” without spending big money. At least in one endeavor I think that I succeeded. At Value Village one of the things I was seeking was a device to sieve compost. Much of the compost I buy has bits of sticks and such in it, and for sowing seeds and transplanting seedlings that’s not the greatest thing. What I found at Value Village was a tray with holes, originally created to be veggie basket for grilling vegetables, for the big price of $2. Score!
While at Value Village I also realized why I am looking forward to being vaccinated — to reduce my anger toward people who either don’t wear masks indoors, or wear them so that it doesn’t completely their mouth and nose. I understand that there will be a period of time between now and some time in the future where fully-vaccinated people will start parading everywhere without wearing masks, and that this will cause me angst for awhile, but if you are wearing a mask please wear it correctly for fuck’s sake.
On the drive home I discovered that Dunkin Donuts is building another Drive-Thru on Moreland Avenue, this one closer to Value Village across the street from where El Mexicano used to stand. I hope that they are building enough parking lot space to avoid the traffic congestion the one a few miles further north on Moreland Avenue creates on a daily basis.
Yesterday afternoon I spent some time trying to “debug” my A/V receiver issue in the basement. After trying many, many things including resetting the receiver, I Googled the make/model only to find out that I am not the only one whose receiver has mysteriously stopped emitting audio. So, it appears that this is not a fixable problem and that more electronic waste will be headed to CHaRM. 🤦🏻♂️
Tonight is the final German class of this quarter. While I could have diverted the money toward an electronics purchase, I have decided to try one more quarter of classes.
After German class I need to gather all of my tax paperwork so that I can take it to my accountant either tomorrow or Monday.
Hope all is going well in your world today.
