Big day today, it’s the day after I gave the front lawn its first mowing of 2021. Oh, and today I get my first jab of the COVID vaccine as well. Future Paulie: fifty-three weeks later your life has improved (even if some of your technology has failed you this year, and most days you’d love to tear down the ITP Estate and start anew) and you won’t be on the return path the “normal” but rather on the continual path of your life. Deep, man…
Yesterday was a day of getting some chores done â€” Lowe’s run, a little weeding, lawn mowing, dirtying and washing many pots, bowls, and dishes, and some seed sowing (have put the next round in the “ground” to replace those that died this week). I suppose that I did some work for “XYZ Corp” as well.
As I mentioned in a comment yesterday, my lunch incorporated some lettuce and radishes harvested from WLF (the new moniker so in your head you can read “Wee’s Little Farm” or “Wee Little Farm”). I thought it was cool to eat my own food, even if it was included with store-bought goods. I should mention that I am not attempting to be a fully sustainable homesteader, I know that I can’t produce milk, make cheese, whatever, I’m just trying to incorporate this hobby’s output into my life.
Dinner last night was a failed, but edible Thai dish made in the Instant Pot. Because I couldnâ€™t get the Instant Pot to achieve pressure the ingredients for the sauce never really came together so the sauce was grainy and none too pleasant at which to look. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
My attempt to watch entertainment on my iPad failed last night in part because nothing I started to watch thrilled me, and in part because I fell asleep early. Yo ho ho the farmer’s life for me! ðŸ˜‚
Hope all is going well and you are staying healthy.
