Oh yeah, a blog. I must have gotten so high yesterday that I forgot that I needed to write another entry today.
Yesterday was a big day, Apple held its event announcing a new iMac, AppleTV, and a new iPad Pro which houses one of their fancy-pants M1 chips.
Oh yeah, my new M1 MacBook Air for which I will be making monthly payments over the next twelve months also was delivered a day earlier than the early delivery (today instead of next week) promised last week. It’s a goddamn good thing that I was home too as UPS put it on the front stoop, knocked on the door, and took off. No signature needed?!?!
WLF is doing okay, though I notice a few more mother* fungus gnats last night. And I am not thrilled by the chilly snap we are due to have since my peppers and tomatoes are already puny. I’ve also had to make some (pretty poorly done) crop covers to guard against the dreaded cabbage moths that lay their eggs on brassicas (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, and the like), whose offspring caterpillars consume the plants’ leaves. Poor planning on my part means that the Frankenbed can’t be covered (next year group all brassicas into one or two beds, you fool!); those will have to be sacrificial lambs (or whatever the vegetarian equivalent is).
Speaking of vegetarianism, I am not one. Last night I celebrated, a term I use loosely, by going down to Red’s Beer Garden and having a beer and a pulled pork sandwich with french fries. DELICIOUS! Because I was flying solo I couldn’t stay too long, especially since Red’s hosted comedy last night and would have kicked me out at 7:00pm anyway.
After Red’s I drove over to Aldi to pick up a few essentials. Much to my surprise our local Aldi had some gardening wares 🤪, not as much as British Aldis mind you, including a small plastic-covered greenhouse with shelving. Had I not just purchased a smaller version of the same, and Aldi had shown a price for theirs, I may have purchased one. Oh yeah, I did purchase a small roll of “chicken” (or whatever the vegetarian equivalent is) wire; I never thought I’d be buying that at Aldi either.
I was asleep super early 😝, probably before 9:00pm. Subsequently I have been awake and asleep many times sine 2:00am.
Today? Work? More cleanup. Virtual Top Chef with Betsy? And making some decisions, decisions, decisions.
A Happy and Healthy Hump Day to you!
