I’m “in the office” early so that I can “leave the office” early as well. The plan is to assess the storm’s impact on WLF and make any necessary adjustments later this afternoon. East Atlanta was mostly spared, receiving only a couple of inches of rain (I’ll know exactly how much when I get outside to look at my rain gauge!). I heard there was hail “up north”; I hate to think what that would have done to the plants that are actually doing okay growing outside currently. One of the tasks that I know that I need to work on is shoveling some (now very wet) red clay up against the latest raised beds to ensure that the expensive soil I’ve put into them doesn’t leak out. These last two beds sit a good four inches above the current dirt level. The final design has them being buffered by pavers as has been done internally in the FGP, but I need to have much more red clay moved in order to accomplish this. I wonder how many roots I will encounter digging Potato Trench #2? The answer: way too many…
I’ve not whined about my knee recently. Unfortunately this doesn’t mean that I am back to being 100% pain free, but the percentage is high and I wonder if the pain I do still have can be attributed to the meniscus, or it’s from some other part of the knee that is weak/damaged. I hope to start getting out on my bicycle(s) more very soon, so hopefully that will strengthen the knees.
Post-vaccine shoulder is fine. Looking forward to jab #2. I never expected to look forward to an injection!
Yesterday I made a post-work trip down to Aldi. Inexplicably I failed to get some of my standard purchases, such as almond milk, onions, and mushrooms, so I suppose I’ll be making a return trip sooner rather than later. It’s probably a good thing that American?/Atlanta? Aldis don’t carry the wide range of household goods I’ve seen in YouTube videos recorded in European Aldis, otherwise who knows what stuff I’d be buying. 🙄
Today I may be purchasing an A/V Receiver from Best Buy (to be picked up next week), and then with some cleaning/decluttering of the basement may return to riding the trainer as well. (note for my brother: I’m considering purchasing a new laptop very soon. I need to hear some updates about work first. I’ll keep you posted via text.) I’m also still doing research about getting a new television. See? How can I be expected to perform much-needed house repairs when all of my money is going toward filing my electronics world?
It’s Friday? Oh? I haven’t done too much planning for this weekend, save the walk that I will do with Betsy and Bella tomorrow morning. I expect that I will be going to Black Sheep on Sunday, though it is way the fuck up in Braselton. The hash will be doing an on-after at the Braselton Brewery, a place Bonnie and I visited for Hop Passporting, but that will occur after the hash. And how much beer after a hash should I be drinking if I need to drive for an hour in order to get home? Decisions, decisions. What’s on your weekend agenda?
I hope that you are doing well and remaining healthy.
