I’m giving myself an A for Effort yesterday for getting shit done, even if I did tweak my knee in the process. The knee isn’t too bad, but it hurts a little bit today.

Yesterday I repurposed some slender cinder blocks and built a bean planting bed for the bush bean (variety: Contender) seeds that I germinated in some damp paper towel this week. To facilitate the plants I also constructed a frame from which I strung twine up which the beans can grow. Yes, I know that the twine wasn’t necessary since I planted bush beans and not pole beans, but the added support shouldn’t hurt. We’ll see, live and learn.

Other chores that I completed yesterday were using my weed wacker to “mow” the small amount of grass left in the back yard, and then used it to edge the front lawn; later in the afternoon I pulled out my hipster mower and mowed the front lawn.

I also made a quick run down to Aldi for junk food for the weekend.

I also did work for “XYZ Corp”. 🙄

I knew it! Not even five days after I ordered my new MacBook Air Apple sent out an email announcing a Spring Event to be held on April 20. While there is no guarantee that they will be updating the MacBook Air, if they do I will be returning my new one within my fourteen-day return window, and then placing another order. And I have just seen an email that my order is now scheduled to be delivered on April 21, a full week earlier than promised. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Of course most people would be thrilled to be getting their delivery a week early, but I specifically waited to order to ensure that it wouldn’t be delivered while I was at STU; it’s a good thing that this early delivery date does not occur while I am not at home.

Today? By the time you read this I have most likely received jab #2. Woot! Hopefully I’ll have none of the side effects that some people have had.

I may have also already stopped at Kroger, assuming that I decided what I will be eating this weekend, and have returned home to do some work. After work, and before watching Top Chef, I plan to take the leaf blower out to clean up the debris I created yesterday by edging and mowing.

If all goes to plan after Top Chef watching I will prepare all of my gear for this weekend in anticipation of a fun weekend. I’m hoping my official BRAG STU packet arrives in the mail today since I’ve yet to receive it.

Hope that you are having a good week and are remaining healthy.

    I really hope you don’t experience side effects too! I need my camping buddy. 🙂

    I also got shit done yesterday including donating a couple bike helmets to a friend and donating my old bike and bike rack to Bearings Bike Shop. Of course, I am now really regretting the bike donation after seeing the state of another friend’s bike last night. 🙁 I rushed to donate it yesterday as there was a chance of rain in the forecast today.

    After Spring Tune Up, I’ll make an earnest effort to reorganize the garage. I bought a bike rack last week and another will be ready for pick up when I return.

    I was going to stop into Monday Night Garage when they they opened at 4pm to claim my free 12-pack of hard seltzer—free to anyone who has been vaccinated—but my plan to kill some time in-between at Goodwill didn’t work out, so I went home. The deal is good through April.

    I have a few hours left of peace and quiet and my own space to pack before the husband comes home.

    There was a rumor of seeing the land guys yesterday, but they were a no show. Apparently they have a machine in the shop and were going to bring it over once it was freed.

    There was lawn mowing after work as well as a Games call last night. No other real news from these parts.

    Daisy didn’t eat her dinner last night, or at least finish it. I don’t know what that means as far as baby delivery.


  3. Jab #2 done, the waiting starts…

    thought I’d pop in – say hi! see some of y’all this weekend.
    Today is my last day at Matson, after 15 years here, I’ve had enough.
    gotta run –

  5. Rain still predicted for Rutledge on Saturday. 😒 I am going to have to figure out how to prepare for this.

  6. Mail delivered, still not received my STU packet. 🤬🤬🤬 They better have some onsite for those of us they and the USPS have failed.
